160 Angela Jia Kim – Radical Radiance During Tough Times

My goal for 2022 is to help our industry heal and part of that is learning from other people and sharing our experiences, so today’s guest is Angela Jia Kim. She is a former concert pianist-turned-founder of Savor Beauty, a natural skincare, facial spa, and self-care journal brand inspired by Korean beauty rituals. She is also the author of the book Radical Radiance: 12 Weeks of Self-Love Rituals to Manifest Abundance, Beauty, and Joy. In this episode, Angela and I talk about the perks of her “Give-Give-Get” public relations approach and the strategy behind teaching people how to treat their skin and applying those lessons to their souls. We also talk about ways to put your radiance into your business and how to make what Angela calls “gorgeous chaos.”

Listen to this episode to learn why Angela was so inspired by the resilience of her female coworkers during the pandemic, how to set boundaries with clients, and why manifesting comes so easily to her.
