Amy’s Story that inspired the Business Seminars of our Executive Entrepreneur Program

I am so excited to see that you love making botanical body care products like I do!

Back in 2003, I had a small botanical based body care brand called Buddha Nose, and to be honest….I really had no idea what I was doing. Before I realized the business was even viable, my handmade organic body care products were landing in the hands of editors and buyers, and luxury retail locations like the Wynn Hotel and Fred Segal, and I was catapulted into the niche luxury beauty market without a clue.

It was a different time back then; In the early 2000s in NYC, there wasn’t a community of women beauty entrepreneurs, and certainly not many who were passionate about plant-based ingredients.

During those early years, despite the brand’s growing reputation, my failures were epic. It was a never ending rollercoaster of highs and lows.

I’m sharing this, because I don’t want that to happen to you!

The Executive Entrepreneur Program is the program I wished existed when I was running my beauty brand. After many years in the natural beauty scene in NYC, I’ve carefully curated a business seminar curriculum that seamlessly combines with the Botanical Body Care Product Online Certification Course, that is designed to help you succeed. We want you to win, and by sharing our network and our experience, there is no reason why you won’t be able to.

I have learned step by step how to make natural and organic skincare products and started using a lot of new and amazing ingredients. I have deepened my knowledge about essential oils, vegetable oils, herbal oils and how to use it to support and enhance the skin health. All this knowledge has been extremely valuable to my life, family and my business.

this whole course is REALLY AMAZING!!! Wish there was something like this out 5 years ago when I started out making!!!! It is laying many of my fears to bed!
