19 Laura Cooksey – Stepping Forward into an Expertise in Acne Treatment

Lori Crete - The Beauty Biz Show 500

Today, I am so excited to talk with President and Co-Founder of Face Reality, Laura Cooksey.

Laura is known for being an acne expert, but she is also a licensed esthetician and massage therapist. In addition, she’s the creator of Proven Strategies for Treating Acne, a DVD training system.

We covered a range of topics, including the importance of client consultations, how to successfully grow a business, and the value of showing up and coming from a place of empathy.

Laura and I agree on so many things, especially when it comes to owning your success and stepping into it, and I can’t wait for you to hear more.

Enjoy today’s show.
