Cultivate From Homeless to 7 Figure Entrepreneur with Marie-Claire (Best of the Podcast)

In a rare but very special “Best of She Sells Radio” episode, you’ll hear from one of the most inspiring guests we’ve ever had on the show. This is an episode that I have gone back to listen to time and time again myself, and now that it has been so long since we’ve had Marie-Claire on the show, we need to revisit this conversation. It’s THAT good.

This interview is an emotional journey as we hear a story that will blow your mind. Our guest, Marie-Claire is a highly sought-after beauty and lifestyle expert on social media, an entrepreneur, and an absolute inspiration for single mothers and women in business.

Marie-Claire immigrated from Haiti as a teen mother and while raising her son Dominique who is autistic and epileptic, made the journey from welfare, homelessness, bankruptcy, and constantly feeling unworthy and ashamed, to now topping over $167,000 monthly! Today she shares her journey and how she was able to keep her vibrant energy throughout it all. Her secret? Listen to your heart. It always knows.

to see you you look beautiful thank you for being here of course of course hello


hello so we have we may have more women hopping on we’ve got 10 in the group it’s it’s a different time than we


normally meet so I think some women may be catching the play um but we’re going to be obviously like sharing this with


everyone and um and it’s going to be really really beautiful so I don’t want to waste any time I want to like get


into having you here with us which we’re so exced so um okay so this is really


really beautiful and ladies Kate and I connected I think like back in April we started talking about you coming in and


Kate is so in demand she was like it’s gonna have to be here which is great because she is such a phenomenal um


human being but also entrepreneur and so Kate I’ll let you do like a more formal introduction if you’re okay with it but


I do want to say a couple of things um that I just really respect and appreciate about Kate and that I’m


excited to um hopefully dive into today with her as your guest Mentor for the month um is number one so we we


connected I think first in Italy is that where we first I was actually trying to think about that today I think it was


Italy I think it was Venice yeah I think we connected we were at a retreat together in Venice um and I like I had


watched Kate’s business from afar you probably don’t even know this but I’d been like I know I’m like learning new things yeah I like I was like oh she’s


like on top of her game like she’s got it and I was honestly like we were paired together for an exercise and I


was intimidated to be paired with you and I don’t know if you could tell or not but I was no I could


not she was so kind and so present and


so just like the most beautiful Soul um really helping me think through different ways of being in my business


and in my life too and I was just like drawn to her and just like so appreciative um of how you showed up


with me there and um just what she has built and created um I think what’s


going to be really powerful for today Kate if you’re up for it is um so I know


you’ve got I told the women in our Marco Polo chat I was like I feel like you’re like a celebrity entrepreneur stylist I


don’t know if you would identify with that but who also has built a very


successful uh business as well teaching other stylists how to grow their business and we’ve actually got women in


the community who are your clients too which and they’re like this is amazing her Mastermind is amazing so um so she’s


got such a a beautiful business background and I think what’s really fun if you’re up for it would be to talk you


know not just about um I’d love to talk a little bit about the elements of personal style because every woman in


here in our group uh both here present who will watch the replay um we are committed to having it all and doing it


in style too right so every woman is elevating her money her business her


finances her life but also I would say it’s probably common in this group that like a lot of women enjoy fashion or


like they want to show up as the best version of themselves so I think it’d be really fun to talk about that because it’s such a big part of your expertise


as well as um I know you talk about like how to land dream boat clients and because you’ve built and scaled like you


know I’d say multiple successful businesses right now too so with all of that being said do you want to say hi


and actually get a word andse and introduce yourself I know I’m loving it I’m just listening um I apologize if you


guys see me dab my eye I have like um allergies sometimes and it makes my eyes


just like cry I’m not sad I’m very happy but if you see me downb my eye that’s why um but yeah I am so excited to be


here with you guys I am Kate Taylor it did take a long time for me to um get here because we are quite


busy um and I for the people watching on replay thank you for watching on replay


originally the we were the normal time that you guys meet I think is 6 AM my time and I was like oh I love Elyse but


I cannot do 6 am. I can’t do that um yeah but I am a


personal Fashion Stylist for badass entrepreneurs that are you know big names out there making a difference


really my driving force behind styling entrepreneurs is that they are also


having impact um I became a stylist by way of almost going to medical school so


obviously a very normal track um toally and took a hard left um but in the


beginning of my business coming from a science background I was just very used


to you know you study you get good grades and like you move along and and all is well and I came into this


creative space where people were saying you have to suffer and you have to struggle and you know you you can’t have


it all and you have to like choose and and I just like immediately something in my body was like I think I’m I’m not


gonna cuss I I call BS on that let’s just say that uh and I just determined


that I was going to figure out how to do it and then I would teach any stylist that would listen to me like literally if you’ll listen to me I’ll teach you um


so that’s what I did I built multiple six figures in in each of the different areas of styling and then turned around


and about seven years ago now or maybe six um started building schools for


stylists and the first one was just like the technique of how to style and then


from there I built more business components so business of style is our second School boss um where we teach the


business components and really support the stylist in mentorship around business and then I have a top tier


Mastermind called Front Row stylist and that’s where we really cohort for a year and it’s a true


Mastermind um and it’s awesome so that’s kind of what I do um I live in LA and I


moved here during the pandemic like a true crazed person um but I was living in Boston for 15 years and when the


pandemic hit I was like I can’t do first of all I was like wintered out like I


don’t I don’t know where if you guys live near Boston or in anything you know I just moved to Maine by the way I’m oh


my god did you rcing myself no it’s gonna be fine part uh where am I living


Falmouth like near Portland oh okay yeah yeah I’m just laughing about the winter out gorgeous is beautiful yeah as long


as you well thing is you’ve I was a single woman digging out my car every


snowstorm and I got real sick of it so you won’t have to do that so don’t worry about that um but yeah I I just was wintered out I was


like I can’t do another winter and especially if you’re telling me I have to be in my apartment the whole time


like I was just like no it’s not happening for me so I up and moved


across the country and I now live here in LA but I go back and forth between here and Boston because I still have a


ton of clients in Boston so I go back every three months to see our style clients that are still there um but I


live here with my partner and our dog and two cats and yeah building multiple Empires at the


same time you know gosh never a doll moment and I do remember that


um that conversation that you’re talking about the activity and I remember being like Elyse I am drawing a line you are


flying first class like I remember having a conversation was that when I decided to fly first class yes that was


I think that was the first time I had flown internationally first you flown and you’re like but it’s like I’m gonna I’m not gonna do it all the time that


was like so nice but I was like yes you are going to do it all the time absolutely you are and then you found


out that you were pregnant I was like now you’re definitely doing it like yes you are you were a godsend I


forgot that that was one of the things we talked I owe you so much you trying to be very reasonable and I was like


we’re not being reasonable here this is this is not the place for reasonable this is the place for enjoying your life


ladies I’ve come a long way to you can hear this you’re like do at least ever try to be reasonable you were


I think like we can Ed right at the beginning where I was like no I’m changing a lot of stuff and I remember like now that conversation I remember


that and that’s so beautiful so thank you for bringing me to reason actual reason with


that I love it it was so good it wasn’t hard you were like I think you were at the Tipping Point because you’re like


yeah I think you’re right I think you’re right let’s let’s yeah I’m gonna do it like it wasn’t like a oh I don’t know


you were like you were there you just once you do it you can’t really go


back so um I think said something too that’s so fun and you all will feel this in Kate’s energy and this is something


that is so like I’ve been really playing with this word this year of like Unapologetic um and tapping into that


and there’s this I think it’s just fun to listen to you talk because it’s like this and it’s not an a um not in an ego


way it’s like an ownership way like owning your space owning what you’ve done owning who you are and what you want which is so aligned with the women


in this group too my partner says that all the time like the I I don’t recognize that myself necessarily


although I don’t feel uncomfortable in any room but my partner will say you


just take up space and you’re okay with it like and not in a bad way of like God you’re taking up so much space like


you’re just you’re okay with taking up space you’re not gonna apologize for being a woman you’re not gonna apologize for taking up space and I was like hell


no I’m never gonna apologize for that I love that I love that let me ask you Kate what is what is your preference for


today do you have something you want to share with us or do you want to do Q&A no let’s do QA I love I I mean I could


look you guys I could talk about anything for hours but I would love for you guys to get what you want the most


so I’m happy to talk about anything ask me questions let’s just dive into what’s going to be the most help helpful okay I


love that so let’s do it this way um I’ve I’ll kick us off because I’ve got like 18 million questions I want to ask


you but ladies will you um let’s just do it the way we do in our normal calls like put your name in line in the no


don’t do that just raise your hand raise your let’s do that going to be easier raise your hand if you’ve got a question you want to ask um Kate again I think


both on the the style front and building your your brand in that way and your personal image of how you show up as


well as building and running multiple businesses and Empires which I know some of you do um and then I also want to


talk about taking up space a bit so so let’s start here let’s actually here’s my question and then anyone else just raise your hand this is such a fun


opportunity um so hold on I oh yes okay so with personal


style yeah and how we present ourselves um I have found that as I


elevate my own self-concept the clothes that once felt okay they don’t feel okay


anymore um and yet stepping into like what is what am I going to wear at this


new level in this iteration and how am I going to present myself and I find sometimes it’s like there’s something I


that like really speaks to me I’m like oh the old me would feel uncomfortable wearing that or it would be too loud or


take up too much space or so what are what are some of the things that you coach women through so your your clients


your badass entrepreneur clients like how do you help them really craft what is that next image that of how I want to


show up in my style and then start to live into it and embody it I’d love to hear that yeah well first we start with


a place of style is not just a superficial thing um it’s I’m the least


judgmental stylist you’ll ever meet I mean you you know you’re kind of catching on probably just by Elyse and


stories but I’m not ever going to judge anyone I don’t think there’s any point in that I’m always going to love and


accept everyone that’s just who I am and that falls right in line with how you’re


showing up in the world as well so I come from a space of style is not just


something superficial it’s actually your opportunity to share with the world what


you are passionate about and what you find to be true and what you find to be


important you are a walking representation of whatever message you want to send and you could dealer’s


choice on what you want to say and how you want to say it right but if I gave each one of you a megaphone and you


could say one thing to the entire world and you were able to tap into it right now and You’ like well I’d say this and


this it’s probably something that you do in your business or in your life that you’re passionate about you want to make


sure that you’re also saying that with how you’re showing up in the world and for two reason reasons one uh you


deserve to walk around feeling just as confident as you want to feel and if you


are here and you are listening to me you likely have some sort of passion to


impact other people’s lives and when we keep ourselves in a place of being small or not being the visual representation


of the message we actually keep oursel from being able to connect with those people that need you that want you that


would love to find you but you’re the best kept secret right now because because you’re hiding or you’re not


actually representing what you want to be saying so we start from the place of your style is your message your style is


um how you deserve to show up in the world and if you’ve accomplished great things great let’s let’s make sure you


look that part not meaning like okay great you you’ve made a lot of money now go buy all uh Chanel No I’m just saying


like show up in the way you want to be showing up right so how we start with


any clent client is what is the message you want to share so we create what I call style words and it’s what I teach


my stylist to do as well um but I we do five words and the beauty of working


with a stylist that works in the way I work because other people don’t do this but it’s a co-creation process so I am


never going to be a stylist nor are any of my stylists that I teach and train going to be stylist that come in and say


this is your style here’s what you’re going to wear you’re going to listen to me have a nice life like no that’s just


not how I am I don’t drive with that I think it’s like weird and icky it’s it feels used car salesman to me it’s I


want it to be a co-creation so let’s talk about what’s your message what do you want to be saying okay great how do


you want to be saying that what kind of stylistic things really light you up we co-create and then from there we get to


go into the closet or go shopping or both create looks so that our folks feel


confident and wonderful and powerful and in their full self at all times and


um it’s really important to understand the power of that because if you are meeting people I mean you guys know this


just in the very basic level first impressions are a big deal right and the


number six decision people make about you is whether they trust you that’s before you ever say a word so if we’re


living lives or running businesses or trying to impact people and trust is part of that which it is we want to make


sure that we’re sh showing up in a way that emanates that right so it’s it’s a


lot more psychology and maybe that’s just my version because I’m also obviously a science nerd if I was going


to go to medical school um but there’s more psychology in it and there’s more power in it that I think a lot of people


allow themselves to see because it’s very easy to find something that is uh


not in someone’s wheelhouse and then watch them say it’s not that big of a deal it’s not important like who cares


what I do is way more important than what I look like and true true what you


do is very important but also what you are showing up as visually you could say


is equally important as as you can understand you’re your walking marketing team in the beginning until you have


other people talking about you you’re doing the talking and you’re either doing the talking with your messaging or


your voice or the way you’re just showing up so that’s a long-winded way of saying that’s kind of how we start we


land on this is a co-creation we want this to be the message you you feel Comfort comfortable with now


there’s always like a a Tipping Point right people will always have a comfort level where they’ve shopped how they’ve


shopped um the looks they’ve put together we’re always going to keep some of that to to keep the Comfort there but


it’s my job as a stylist and my stylist that I train it’s their job as well to push beyond what is currently


comfortable or normal a little bit meaning it’s a stylist job to see the


next level version of you and sty you for that because then that style is also pulling you up into that because you’re


the embodiment of it I’m sure at leise talks about this but you can’t say I want a cup of water and not have a cup


so you have to be the vessel that that all the things that you’re wanting come to right you have to already be that


person not say oh yeah yeah Kate I’ll I’ll get dressed in the way I want to get dressed and style myself when I and


pushing it off you got to be that person now and sometimes being that person now is showing up physically confidently


dressed as that person like what does the million-dollar business owner look like how does she carry herself how does


he work how do they interact with people what is their confidence level like and asking yourself those questions and


saying now how can I do that now so that I am that vessel now and I’m not pushing it off for when I’ll do it


when it’s a long answer to your question so good no it’s so good and you said and


you you said something that we teach but in a different way and I love how you said it you can’t say I want a cup of water and not have a cup right is that I


think that’s why I love that yeah it’s like people saying yeah yeah I’m gonna do it then and it’s like well you’re


just pushing it off that’s not you’re not actually gonna do it then because you you just keep saying I’ll do it when


instead of saying I’m this is who I am now yeah absolutely that’s I’ve been having a lot of fun because I’ve got


such a vision right now of where we’re going as a company and where our office space is going to be and like a lot of


you know a lot of different fun things there and like like every day I’m dressing like her like I’m dressing like I go in the office I don’t this this is


it it’s not but it’s but it’s a different energy it is a different energy um and that’s part of the


becoming I think it’s a way different energy it also expedites your manifestation so if you’re wanting a Quant templete moment where you’re like


I really you know I I can see myself there I can Vision it like I I know that’s where I’m headed then be her now


yeah be her now and Quantum Leap that like make it happen quicker collapse the time line it’s so good I want to ask and


then again if as you’re listening if you have questions again about personal style how you’re presenting and showing


up even for you personally for I think what’s beautiful about being here live with Kate like I don’t know how deep we can go but maybe there’s some pointers


on for individual women like if you want to elevate into this type of message or that positioning what can we do so yeah


raise your hand ask questions on that or the business side um I have a question though uh I do want to ask about taking


up space unapologetically MH so we talked about that a little bit at the beginning I used to struggle so


much with that and I still find every time I Elevate there’s another level of comfort I have to reach with taking up


even more space and it challenges the old version of me yeah was it always


easy for you personally to do that and just be super visible like can you can you talk a little bit about your journey


there and how you got to a place where you feel really confident taking up so much space yeah no it was definitely not


comfortable um I well okay I’ll say this I’ve never


been shy like so so that’s part of it right is like I’ve not been someone


who’s like waiting to be spoken to I typically am doing all the uh speaking


first my mom tells stories about how we would be in the airport and i’ would be like I don’t know three years old very


young and I would just Dart off and she’d be like oh my God and like chasing after me and I was just like finding


friends I’d be like hi and I just walk up to people and start talking so I’ve never really met a stranger so there


there is that side of me that’s like I’m not I’m pretty uh talkative and


friendly um but I will say that part of me especially when I started building my


business um it was interesting there was like a mix it got bigger and that I got more um


in my power because owning a business and running a business felt very aligned


and I was very excited to be in my alignment and I was accomplishing a lot of things um you know in person with


clients and all of that but I had to overcome a lot when it came to visibility online because I had fears around that I had fears around people


are going to judge me and what if I get it wrong and what if I don’t say the right thing and and what if they think


I’m stupid and I don’t know what I’m doing I’m I’m a baby at this and you know I had a lot of fears around that


that I had to really work through and I did that by way of working with a


mentor I did that by way of getting into action and really just allowing myself to see this is just another like treat


this like any thing that you have started Kate and not known how to do on


day one like any job you ever had day one you’re like am I gonna learn all of this and then like two weeks later


you’re like old hat whatever I got this it’s the same kind of thing where it was like okay this is uncomfortable but it’s


bumpy before it’s smooth so I’m going to just like keep doing it and build that muscle and then um you know I saw


success and I was experiencing a lot of uh visibility and all of that and then I


went through a bit of a Health crisis um I’m trying to


remember if it was before or after Venice I think it was


after anyway I think it was after it might have been before but it was right around that same time I went through a


Health crisis where I was working myself so hard that I had gotten adrenal fatigue and through the adrenal fatigue


and through testing realizing that what I actually had was an autoimmune disease


um called Hashimoto and I had gone from being someone who Not only was super successful but I was perfectionistic


type A about everything including my health so I was like


psychotic about how I ate and how I worked out and like I was an animal I was an animal and all of a sudden this


autoimmune um I couldn’t do the things I was doing before and I put on a significant amount of weight in a very


short amount of time un like unbeknownst to me on how it was happening so I was still eating crazy healthy and and


exercising and all the things so I went through another level of not being comfortable


online not being comfortable being seen I mean I I was still accomplishing


things because I am driven by impact and I’m driven by


integrity and I had given my word that I was going to do things and I was seeing that it was impacting other people so I


put myself kind of to the back burner and not really didn’t really think about myself but also was like I don’t want to


really be seen right now because I don’t feel comfortable and I don’t feel confident and I thought I was playing it cool and


then I went to an event where someone said to me oh my God you don’t look anything like your pictures and I was


like I’m GNA leave this event now because my pictures were me like 80 pounds ago so like yeah I know like it


was like thank you very much um and it was my own just like next level of okay


this is a new version of me that um is requiring not rest but like slow down


like she who sleeps the least does not win and I was playing by that game she who sleeps the least and works the


hardest wins and it was not allowing for freedom in my life it was not really allowing for confidence it was like


false confidence because I was accomplishing things but in a way that was like destroying my health right so


that was another level of being uncomfortable taking up space because I


was uncomfortable in my own skin which everything that I go through I’m I’m very happy I go through because I I am a


better teacher and a better mentor and a better stylist and a better friend um


just who I am once I experien something the my ability to be able to relate is different for me so I was able to relate


on a different level and just understand some people myself


included um feel uncomfortable for certain reasons whatever they are it’s


not right or wrong and the a lot of times those are beyond our control and I


live in a world where I kind of understood that but now it was a lived experience and I had to now work with


myself and say I am going to be comfortable and confident again to take


up space um but I’m not right now and I had to be really honest about that


especially coming from someone who had been so comfortable and confident with that it felt scary to


say all right I’m going to do this I’m going to look different I’m going to uh


um be a little shaky before I’m smooth again and what is that going to do to my


business like what is that going to do to my business what is that going to do to my relationships it was scary um but


I did I worked through it and it was a really beautiful awareness where I was


like my body is so powerful like so cool like I don’t care if it has weight I


don’t care if it’s doing this I don’t care like I have a powerful body and I want to show the world that you get to


still be comfortable and confident and impact and not allow those things to hold you back before I thought just


things that were holding you back is you don’t know how to dress now it was like no sometimes there’s things happening in


your life beyond your control that want to take you out and you even still have to show up because I can’t not show up


for my stylist and I can’t not show up for my clients because I know that what


they are doing requires me to also be of service to them and if if I’m going to sit in my own stuff that’s selfish so I


worked through it I showed up I did the work I put the work in um and it was it


was another you know Tipping Point like I said so no I have not always been comfortable and confident there have


certainly been times where I was at my own Tipping Point a couple times and for


one reason or not um things happened but it always came back to why am I doing


this why do I care what is my motivating my driving force and then my


values and when I tap back into that the beautiful thing this last thing I’ll say in this the beautiful thing around that


is I get to remind myself it’s not about me so my visibility stuff and all of that it’s not even about me it’s about


impacting other people and that I will show up for every single


time amen amen amen I’m taking some notes on what you said thank you for sharing that yeah so powerful I don’t


know that I’ve ever shared that you guys with anyone so thank you going with the intuition my number one styling tip


truly is is a little bit what Laura’s already had to do by force is make space like if you are looking to do anything


in your life along the lines of style especially for my entrepreneurs where you’re wanting to get more pieces you


feel confident in get more things that you um love even if it means designing


new things out of what you already own you still need to create space so my number one recommendation is create the


space first energetically psychologically and physically create


space allow yourself to have that so then you can give yourself the permission to play that I was talking


about uh earlier to just play with what do I already have that I haven’t used


the second piece of advice would be really land on a couple pieces that


make you feel like a total badass and what I mean by that is if I were to say


to any of you hey uh it’s last minute but there’s an event tonight there’s 300


people in that room that all want to hire you you just need to show up and like talk to them and then they’re ready to go what would you grab and if you’re


like I don’t freaking know then I need you to get at least two things in your closet that represent that one one thing


that’s a little dressier if it was like a Gala that you could just have like a black dress and whatever I put on a pair of shoes I’ve dressed it up fine the


other thing might be a different kind of dress or a Blazer or a really cool top


or maybe some awesome earrings that just like push you over the edge maybe a


beautiful necklace whatever but a couple things that you grab and it’s like


that’s your superpower like you it’s in that thing whatever it is and you’re like I got this put me in that room 300


new clients let’s go like that’s what I want you to have in your closet at least a couple pieces the end goal would


obviously be everything in your your closet would feel that great that’s that’s how I that’s what we work towards


um when we’re working with our clients is that they love everything in their closet and they know how to wear


everything so when you’re really getting into what do I wear in my closet give yourself permission to play look at


things you’ve never worn before things that you haven’t worn in a long time and pair them with something that you love


that is like your comfort your go-to whatever so like a great pair of jeans that you know I could put those on at any time


and then try that blouse you haven’t worn a while or try that jacket you’ve never worn whatever have at least one


thing on your body though that you already know like I love this so like I already feel good now I’m just trying


other things okay so give yourself permission to play and then also give yourself permission to release if you


find that this and this is the last little tip if you find that you have your words that describe how you want to


be seen in the world and what you want them to know about you that you’re smart or loving or an expert or whatever it is


that you want them to know and really ask yourself put the Garment on look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself


do I feel those words do I feel like I’m representing those words with this piece if the answer is no give yourself


permission to release it because there is someone else out there that actually will love that piece and and would


really love to wear it um but it’s no longer serving you so give yourself permission to play permission to release


and then really be the visual representation for your brand truly like truly ask yourself what is that and how


can I embody that in a in a stylistic way that’s what I would say that’s


powerful thank you so so much you’re welcome I love you I’m like gosh this love you too so I’m so grateful uh that

myself and I was actually listening to this week while I was working out and I thought I have to bring this back on the


podcast um this is where I interviewed a  friend of mine an amazing woman Marie


Claire who went from literally homeless to seven figures


entrepreneur and she did it the feminine way now regardless of your gender as you’re listening when I say the feminine


way what I mean is that it was not about about hustling or efforting or


struggling her way there it was about allowing receiving


expansion um abundance and I know that if you’re a listener of this show that


you want all of those things for yourself and that you are Desiring them I’m guessing at a greater and greater


level and so I was listening to this this week while I was working out and I was so inspired I was like I want to bring this back on the show for you to

today’s guest is a sought after Beauty and lifestyle expert on social media


she’s an entrepreneur she’s a huge inspiration you I I would say


particularly for single mothers and women in business and you’re going to hear about her story today on the show


and it’s it’s so inspiring and her just a little teaser so she immigrated from


Haiti as a tea mom uh while raising her beautiful son Dominique who’s autistic


and epileptic epileptic and made the journey from welfare to homelessness to


bankruptcy to feeling unworthy and ashamed and now as a seven figure entrepreneur with her sales topping over


$167,000 a month which is like oh my gosh celebration so exciting so please


welcome mother licensed skin therapist and CEO of seven figure brand


acne expert skincare the incredible Marie Claire Marie welcome to the show today wow what an intro let’s roll that


in one more time I love that right you can play that as your morning


PumpUp but it’s you and it’s true and you did all of it and we want to know how oh my God tell us tell us your story


tell us how like how did how did you go from from te mom in Haiti to where you


are today yes um so I came here from Haiti when I was 16 pregnant and my


mother sent me here to have the baby because it was such shame and guilt and


you know I went to an all girl Catholic school and you you get that already and


I felt so horrible they kept it a secret no one knew I was pregnant so right


there you know I’m caring this guilt this shame I’m hiding right so I come to


the US I speak no English I give birth to my son


and of course he now has autism and epilepsy so I have to deal with all of


that on top of it I don’t understand what’s happening with him I don’t understand the diagnosis because I don’t


speak English so I am learning by watching TV uh a little side note All My


Children so I and throw back fun fact all my


children thank you and um and then I got on welfare because I needed support I


was 16 years old and um and and I always say I’m so grateful for the for for


welfare the welfare system here because there are people like me we truly needed that right so I was so beyond grateful I


felt so blessed I’m like oh my God this country is amazing they give help they


give help to people who need it and here lies my gratitude for the United States


of America I love this country so so much um because there’s so much to look at um you know that on the good side


right so um then what did I do Dan I went to adult school because I couldn’t


go to school in the daytime since I was a teenager with a mom I was watching my son in the daytime so I went to adult


school at night and got my GED and uh and then from there I got my


first job I believe when I was 19 so I went to the welfare office and told my


um my casew worker if you will that today is the day I I no longer need the


welfare I am standing on my own I got my first job she was so excited she cried


we both cried and um and I was just so proud and I remember my first job I was making


$113,000 a year and I was so excited I’m like oh my God I just I’m so happy I’m


making more than a thousand dollars a month and yeah I could barely survive on


it by the way but I was so grateful and


the life started to change you know I started to feel a little bit more confident because now I could take care


of myself right on my own and then of course I went to sleeping in the car


because I got evicted from where I was living because I could not afford the rent remember $113,000 a year I was


trying to make and meet and um you know and you know and I always had this sense


of dignity through it all like I carry myself well you would never know that I


was struggling financially because on the outside I look so well put together


which I think it’s one of the thing that helped me too because my energy was always one of I want to radiate what’s


inside of me because inside I really do feel radiant it’s just my


senses are not changing yet but I know that they will right yes how do I want


to pause you just really quick on that because I think that is something that regardless of where somebody is in their


life Mar CLA if they’re not where they want to be yet knowing how to radiate


that confidence that energy like even for you while you were sleeping in your car was that something did you just know


how or had you been taught my parents like how did how did you do that even when you’re in this what most people


would say is incredibly tough situation totally I attribute that to my faith um


and my mother it’s a gift from my mom I grew up my mom was always a Praying Woman she would pray I grew up Catholic


they were doing no we went to church every Sunday my mom always whenever something was going wrong or going right


my mother would pray so I was like oh okay so it was ingrained in me so


sleeping in the car very tough by the way tears depression and I always said


why why me why am I going through this right so and then when you look back when I look back


and see that wow I don’t know where I got the strength from but can tell you it’s from my Fai from my faith I always


rely on prayer till this day I am prayer is my number one source of strength and


guidance it still is and um and my mother always said that it’s like you


know it’s like you have to carry yourself well like my mom always instilled that in me she said no matter


what wear the lipstick wear the high heels I started to wear heels at 14 oh


my goodness I love but was it’s a gift that she gave me people used to be like


God you’re just so tough on her and whatever but she was preparing me for the world so when I show up in the room


I radiate I’m not afraid to shine I’m not afraid of my beauty I I welcome it I


know that I’m beautiful no matter what society says like I am my own standard of beauty so it’s something that comes


from my mom it really is a gift that she gave me and I believed it and I really do I did believe it and it’s working


well for me right so caring myself um the way I feel inside just showing up as


that so um yeah so that was part of the journey too and then eventually I ended


up in Corporate America and I was in human resources and thought that I was


just gonna throw parties I’m like human resources that’s what I want to do it’s just a big party


it’s a big party uh because people would see me as like you’re the atal manager I’m like yes and


they’re like you just don’t look like an atal manager I’m like I know I know


because I was just too happy I was too happy red lipstick bold like who does


that where’s your turtleneck right where’s your turtleneck no shame the


managers okay no sh but I was you know the one I was just very vibrant and then


I realized oh my God you do fire people in Human Resources uh oh that’s not what


I want to do right so throughout my career in Human Resources my son just


got worse like his epilepsy he liter he probably would have a seizur TW 12


seizures a month oh and that was unbearable I I got tired of calling in


sick right so because in Corporate America as you know you get sick sick


days a year in in in the US um I would run through that like water literally


like January boom it’s gone and the fear of one day I’m going to crawl in sick


and I’m just gonna get fired like they’re gonna tell me not to come back I I carried that fear with me and then at


the same time too my soul started to say what’s next


what’s next what’s next and I didn’t know what was next I’m like what is next


what what is that calling and I would drive to work I remember being in the


car um thinking God I just don’t want to do this anymore but what am I meant to


do and it was one morning it was one of Dominic’s doctor’s appointment and his


doctor was in Beverly Hills and I remember it was it was lunchtime maybe


121 and he had to get get an EEG and all that so it’s probably two or three by


then and I’m walking to my car and all these women just eating having lunch


just ease just ease and Grace is just flowing through them I can feel it iten


how come you’re not rushing back to the office so I’m like oh my God ladies you


look so beautiful what do you do oh we own our own business and I said oh


walking to the car I said I have to own my own business that’s


what it is wow I need to just I need to feel the way these women felt like I


could see it being demonstrated in front of me so now what is it that I’m going


to do right so this is this is the the question that came all what is it that


I’m meant to do what it is that I meant to do so I was Al always interested in Beauty I was the girl you would find at


Sephora all the time I was buying everything cream moisturizers I also use


I still I am I’m acne prone here’s one I’m not lying I’m acne prone and I was always


breaking out and could not figure out why am I breaking out breaking out so


often right so I would buy things return them buy more things still breaking out


love lipstick love um doing my makeup and I said oh you know what I’m going to


just jump and do makeup so I’m going to side hustle so I started I took out a


little ad in um in Craigslist if you guys remember oh my gosh that’s a


throwback I love the throwback references today yes yes way back then


wow I took it I put a little ad makeup artist I do weddings and and whatnot


didn’t have any training but I’m like I can do this I can do this and was pretty


good at it right how did you get I want to pause you really quick how did you get because I think one of the things


that is most I’m just I love love love in your story is this confidence like so


many women that I work with think well I’ve got to get a license before I can do this or I’ve got to get another certification before I can start


promoting myself and sometimes you do like depending on what it is that you’re doing but oftentimes it’s a mask for


fear it’s a coverup for fear so how did what would you like for a woman who’s


who’s feeling like oh I just I feel scared to put myself out there I feel like maybe I need another certification


another license what would you say to her how can she borrow some of your confidence oh my God you just gotta say


yes and it’s sounds so easy but there’s some work that’s that


required right so like hiring a Coach reading self-improvement books doing


affirmation incantation and seeing yourself as the person that you see in


your head right it sounds so easy but it’s practice practice practice so I


always say so what’s the next step right what is the next step what is the next


step what is the next step so my first step was to take a little ad on craist


and I’m just you know I’m not doing something major I’m not saying I’m going to take out an ad on TV it’s Craiglist I


can do that right and and then also to the nagging feeling


I know women we feel this because we’re so intuitive you get that God but if I


don’t do this I’m just going to regret it it’s like yes you have like every day


it nags at you it just it’s here every day every day it’s like I can’t leave like that I don’t know about you I


cannot leave like that it’s like I have to do it right so when I was there that


girl there 12 years ago who took and add on Craigslist I just was so tired I was


tired of feeling unfulfilled in my line to five that’s what it was I was tired


and I knew my heart you know what always trust your heart yes my heart knew it


was going to be okay my head said oh my God you’re leaving your corporate job to


side hustle where I wasn’t leaving like you have Marie you have a good paycheck you have 41k oh my God stop it already


just be grateful and my heart is saying there is


more there is more there is more so and I couldn’t deny it I just could not deny


it I’m very I’m a curious person too I just have to see what’s on the other side of that right so


that I started to side hustle and I was getting clients I was charging back then


and I was charging like 125 for brides right but I worked so hard for that 125


I tell you I worked so hard because I had to go to their reception do their


touchup and um I was like okay this is not enough maybe I need to now just work


for MAC Cosmetics so I ended up working for MAC Cosmetics just to make the story


short okay that wasn’t that either because I got to meet quotas like I’m not very saly in my head I what is the


word here I don’t see numbers I just want to just feel fulfilled that’s innately that’s how I am so doesn’t


matter how much I make if it’s not fulfilling I’m not gonna stay right so


if I’m I’m like I gotta count how many lipsticks did I sell today it just took out the fun it just it just didn’t make


it fun anymore so quit Mac went back to corporate


America o turtleneck land I so much love I know we have a lot of corporate women


who listen too and I’ve been in corporate and so no because I was not making enough money


and I said I just gotta go back to Corporate America so how did you handle that did it feel like defeat at that


moment as hell yeah was I and I said well you know


what I’m just going to go back I have a plan until I figure out what it is that I need to be but I know that the money


will actually just settle my it will just bring in some more ease right


because I was looking for the E but this is not what I wanted today so to do so back to HR so back to HR got a SCU the


resume iando job in Beverly Hills um at a very fancy sports club like just


celebrities and oh my God I mean the membership is like 2,200 a mon can I


tell you like that’s a very it was very high Vibe I loved it there I loved the


vibe but still did not enjoy being a human resources manager


so one day I am at I’m at Sephora with


my cousin and a girlfriend and um they’re like you know Marie CLA you’re so good at skin care and you’re always


telling us you’re always reading ingredients and and stuff like that you think you know what you you could be


a great aesthetician in the light Bob just


went I said that’s what I meant to be doing that’s what yes skin care


aesthetician mind you my mother had told me that before and I never I was like no


I’m not gonna be an aesthetician she’s like oh my God because you’re doing makeup and you can teach people um how


to take care of their skin like no that’s not what I meant to do no I think it’s because it was coming


from my mother right often times right and we’ve got a hear something at the right time too yes you know yeah totally


and I think my soul was ready to hear it when I tell you two weeks later I was in


skin care school two weeks later and it was so easy went appli fill at the


paperwork paid the fees got on my monthly plan to play the student loan


and w I was in skin care school and I was so happy I was the best student in


the classroom okay my teacher knew she looked at she’s like something special


like I I couldn’t wait to get to to school every morning like I was so happy


I’m like I found my passion so from there life started to change I when I


got into skin care school I knew that I was going to work for myself because remember those ladies right that I saw


having L yes they own their own business so the whole time I’m like I’m gonna own my own business I’m gonna be my boss My


Own Boss so finish skin scare school and I started to open a studio in um where I


was living so I was renting a house in Glendale and it had a back house and I was like I I’m going to turn that into a


skincare Studio you have to apply for license and and and everything like the state has to um give your approval so I


took all the steps and when you’re meant to do something I really believe that


there is a lot of ease that comes with it because you’re meant to do it and


even when you’re faced with challenges you’re you’re so happy you’re


so in the moment they don’t even feel like challenges right like there are people people would have been like oh my


God they said no the first time I’m GNA quit because I have to make the hallway like it has to be this wide this length


and you gotta have water here and there I gotta hire a plumber some people would be like I’m gonna quit I don’t want to


do all that to me I was like oh it’s gonna be perfect right because I was just so happy I felt so at home so those


challenges just felt like okay I’m just their stepping stone what else am I meant to do so open my first Studio no


one came for how long for how long the first


month I fell I think I made $20 and it was from my friend oh my god


of course to can add on Craig remember Facebook back then was not a thing we didn’t have ads we didn’t have in


Instagram was not even a thing when I started yeah and I said well I have to


supplement this income so I I went to work for a dermatologist and best thing I’ve ever


done because it you know the universe is kind I got what I needed working for


this dermatologist who was also a plastic surgeon he only worked with um


acne patients yeah and I took classes at UCLA


about ingredients and how they affect the skin I learned so much from him I became a medical aesthetician that would


have never happened had I not you know if I was just successful on the Geto or


you know that I was booked the universe was guiding me there and so I I want to


pause you really quick on that Mar Clair because how did you stay committed to


your vision in that moment because some people would take that as a sign like oh it’s just not meant to be or this is too


hard how but how did you no doubt you probably dealt with feelings of


disappointment and maybe fear you know all of that but how did you know to stay


committed to the vision and to just pivot rather than throwing in the


towel this is where you know you’re gonna hear me say that a lot I really


follow my heart I really I am I don’t function from a here I do sometimes


usually what gets us in trouble right when I have to look at my p&l and de


centers now because I’m running a seven figure business but there’s always balance there


so again my faith big thing here this is this is my story this is how I got


through it right so I started right around that time I started to discover


authors like Wayne Dyer um Wayne Dyer Lis hay Esther Hicks


Michael Becket Michael Singer like all these all my favorites yeah oh my God and um I read


the book The Power of intentions and it changed my life and from reading that


book it’s by Wayne diai um by the way I met him person like that’s a fun Side


Story I manifested that but I just knew that I was just going to


follow where my heart was leading me it’s very hard to do when you listen to society that says


You must do this you must do that you must follow your head you must be practical and all of that it’s


hard to do but I promise you it’s like you’ve been doing that for so long and it’s not


working why not give yeah why not try it this way right so end up working working


for this dermatologist plastic surgeon became a medical


esthetician of course my confident grew with that because now I have more


practice under my belt and I said I’m going to Pivot and I’m gonna focus on


only seeing customers who have acne in the meantime I’m working on at home on


the weekend uh they don’t even know that like I don’t tell them like I have a side Hustle but I’m putting into


practice everything that I’m learning right so from there um when at that time


then this is where the story comes and I I met my first coach Gina De Gina we


gotta give a shout out gotta give a shout out is how we met yes because she


changed my life she was one of the women that really changed my life and I think


I was ready right so when di Louis say then I hear this woman talking about your worth


and I’m like I gotta go I gotta learn more about this woman she was on a call


and talking about living in a feminine way I’m like oh this is this this is my tribe right I’m like yes tell me more so


went to an event she was doing in Santa Monica and I was able to be in the


hotset if you will where she was she did like a laser session on my business and I remember telling her oh I’m charging


$45 and she screamed she’s like what are you insane look at you everyone please


look at Marie CLA she charges $45 for a treatment then you got a scalp massage


put oh my goodness and she made me look


at my worth and she’s like you’re worth so much more why AR you aren’t you charging


your worth and I said but who’s gonna pay that much for a facial she said you


are a medical aesthetician what your bringing to table if you believe you work Charing more


than you should right and I started to work on that I’m like so little by little I started to increase my prices


and then I moved the office to Beverly Hills um and I mean it’s such a long


story I want to cut it short but moved to Beverly Hills and then I decided that


when I switched to nishing and only seeing people with acne


my business exploded like I could my book I was booked all the time I was


booked all the time because I was known as now I’m now the acne expert so people


came to me just for acne I didn’t wax I didn’t do lash painting I didn’t do any


which I did not enjoy doing by the way so stick to what you enjoy doing and


because in the beginning I would offer everything I would work my tail to the Bone I’m like I got a wax I got to do


this I got to do that but I my love really I had I had a love for acne because I was in acne suffer as well so


booked and then I realized one day and I didn’t realize it came to me you should


have your own skincare line what I’m like you gotta be kidding me


how where with what money how do you do that yeah no kidding and I started to


look at the ingredients of the skincare I was selling other brands to my


customers right so you you know like when you go to a spot they like oh you need this Moisturizer in this sunscreen


that’s what I was doing and um and then I would look at the list of ingredients from what I I was like oh my God I’m


selling them the wrong products how how do I start and that was a two years


journey and found a manufacturer and let me tell you little


by by little I started with three products and now I have 42 products and


you know sales are at 167,000 and let me tell you when I say


this I keep pinching myself because this is the girl who you know was on welfare lived on


cabbage and rice for a long long time and who now just living with ease and


Grace in prosperity and I am just I’m so fulfilled I feel so blessed I have a


great husband my son is doing great I take care of him financially 100% and


I’m able to give back to him now in fact one of my biggest


accomplishments I always get a little emotional when


that when when I started the business I’m crying too I don’t even


know what it is and I’m crying too I Dominique was is epileptic and I had to


put him in a group home because I couldn’t take care of him 247 because he


needs 24hour care so I put him in a group home and I felt horrible but I had


to do that in order to build a business and I said one day I’m just going to


take him back and and it took me seven years you know


and he started to put on weight and he had high blood pressure like he put on


60 pounds and the doctors wanted to put him on more meds and I remember last year I saw I saw him and I


said this is it I’m taking my son back and that was on a


Thursday by the next Tuesday I was signing list a list for his own two-bedroom two bath in Beverly Hills


and I hired full-time care for him so I’m just so grateful to be able to give


back to Dominic because we’ve been through so much together and when I tell


you Le like he lost 60 pounds in three months because he’s eating well um he’s eating


organic and he exercises with my husband and he is


thriving and if I were leave Earth today this is I will leave very happy and


peaceful because I get to give back to Dominique because


Dominique is my big wife so oh my God I’m just so


grateful I forgot every other question I was gonna ask you because that just made me cry really hard too oh my gosh


wow wow from one from a new mom mama’s heart to um to another mama’s heart that


is I know every woman listening gets that wow totally one thing I want to ask


you and your I’ve just learned so much listening to your story I know everyone everyone listening has as


well and you and I were even talking about this in the pre-chat is


about on your journey from like six to seven figures and our listeners are all different places some are wanting to


break their first six figure some are wanting to scale to seven and Beyond but


you mentioned it was the more you allow the more you surrender the more you stay


in your feminine the more the money came and I’m really curious to hear about how


you did that even as you’re scaling and there’s more team and there’s more to pay attention to and there’s more to


manage like how how did you do that and how do you stay in that receptive mode


in the midst of everything bigger that you’re managing now there is and author Esther Hicks yes


and she is big on feeling good is work I’ve been listening to her for years and


she’s one of the authors that changed my life as well and living in the receptive mode is


what she talks about all the time and even Gina um who was my coach in she


always talk about doing business the feminine way and it’s some that I had to learn it’s already in you


but I had to like bring it forward forward and um and truly believe that I


deserve it and truly believe that I deserve it and truly believe that it


didn’t have to be hard I had to do a lot of deprogramming a lot of it gotta work


hard it’s gonna be tough sweat tears you got to make your goals and it’s gota it’s got to scare you to death and and


all of that you got and I work so hard I burn my adrenals yeah and um you know and then


learning to just say I remember when I got to six figures and I wanted to get


to Seven figures and I had a conversation with Gina and she


said are you ready to allow it are you ready


to let go of the fear around your son Dominique because I had so much fear


around Dominique like always worri about him and she said when you start to do to


do this and you start to allow more she said it’s GNA get easier and easier and


I just have these practices I wake up I read a gratitude um I have my gratitude


Journal I meditate and it’s a practice it’s not like one day boom it happens


it’s a practice um and then you know I learned from all the everyone I’m like


everybody’s successful is saying the same thing it must be true when you listen to all these do you need to


listen to one other podcast that the person is saying I have a gratitude practice I meditate in the morning I


find something that bring me joy I mean they’re doing the other things too you know like of course you got to look at


your p&l you got to come up with your marketing strategy but they’re telling you oh I’m living gratitude so I started


Co was such a blessing for me because I discover my love for nature


and I would go on these long long walks and I’m obsessed with trees and I would


look at the trees I would just feel so much peace I would thank God for my life so I just started to thank God for my


life I just kept doing that and do you know like my life changed drastically I


didn’t do anything different I didn’t change my Facebook ads I didn’t I didn’t do anything different I just started to


feel grateful yes by walking and then there are these um I do these thing


called this thing called incantation I learned that from Tony Robin so this is where it’s not affirmation this is like


embodying embodying the energy that you want to be so I wanted to be a seven


figure entrepreneur right so how does it feel to be a seven figure entrepreneur


it feels like ease it feels like fun it feels like Freedom it feels like choices choices choices lots of choices it feels


like traveling first class it feels like tipping well it feels like the


impression of increase so you know what I started to do I started to tip people I tip 25% everywhere I


go I leave everyone with the impression and bring peace I wherever I go I bring


joy abundance Prosperity I treat my friends well I TI the valley guy five


to10 do I my nail lady I TI for 15 to $20 so I just started to do that more


and more and the universe started to show me like when you open your hands it


does too yes so and the more there’s evidence of it just grew my faith it


grew my confidence so and now I do it all the time this is who I I am you know


my name is mar Clare Kates and I am a thriver I’m the most blessed person on the planet everywhere I go people love


me things are always working out for me I’m a power manifestor I choose where the light is


that I in when I say this I walk around my house and I am just saying it with


power and confidence you know God’s wealth is circulating into my life his wealth flows to me in Avalanches of


abundance all of my goals needs desires are met instantaneously by infinite


intelligence I am one with God and God is everything I say this over and over


and over and over until I feel it sometime I Cry Sometimes I’m just I do


these incantations I do them on the street people think I’m crazy I don’t care but I’m in the flow because I’m


choosing me so this is what I’m doing I am just allowing my way into seven


figures that’s what I’ve been doing my husband will tell you the same thing like I’m just and then really really


really since we’re women really listen to me when I tell you this feeling good


is the work feeling horrible doubt fear this is not what I mean imagine God


creating us and just saying like yep you’re gonna suffer this is Imagine well


let’s make it realistic your parent your mother you give birth to your child and you’re like I’m Gonna Make You Suffer


that’s what I’m here to do suffer Everything you ask for I’m not gonna give to you yeah


water figure it out you want food work for it oh you want shelter and


clothing why don’t you work hard for it we don’t say that that’s how God we don’t say that can you imagine saying


that to your child oh my gosh never I love that analogy I’ve never heard it said that way before I love imagine like


oh you want food too bad you’re gonna suffer you are here we are here to


thrive we’re just we just need to allow it we just need to believe that’s what we’re here to do we’re here for


happiness we’re here to thrive we’re here for abundance prosperity and joy start changing your mind mindset that’s


what you’re here to do and every day when I tell you now I can tell you you


can’t convince me otherwise you cannot convince me otherwise because my life reflects it


the more I do it the more abundant I become I’m like oh my God to the point


my husband was very extremely extreme masculine like he’s a grinder


247 my husband one day said to me hm I want to know what you’re doing I want


to do what you’re doing so now my husband went from waking up at 5:00 A.M working out the day he doesn’t go to bed


until 12 oh he meditates he journals he plays golf he’s learning I’m like enjoy


life oh my God enjoy the process because it’s never done as soon as I reach I


remember as soon as I as I reach 15K a month I was like okay can I get to 20K can I get to 30 can I it never stops


stop and then you forget to enjoy it oh my god when tell you it’s harder to get


to six figures than it is to get to Seven figures because you’re working so hard yeah oh my gosh you’re working so


hard and then the minute when I tell you I work less I work less because I have to team to support me and this is a


decision I made for myself I said my business is going to help me with my


lifestyle I want to have I want to call my day I want to call my own schedule and this is what I do I have self-care


Mondays where I don’t answer the phone it’s all about me I get massages I get my nails done and I go on my walks and I


hired a chef I haven’t cooked since last September and listen I struggled with


that when I first I was like but I don’t enjoy cooking I could spend this four


hours doing something else and I tell you it’s so good to have a


sh for me and we don’t have to think my husband even was like what’s the big deal we don’t need it now it’s like we


have a chef who comes every week and make these laish meals for us and every week we’re just getting something


different it’s like oh my God there’s so much more good on the other side when we say thank you when we’re not trying to


just hold on to it and be like let me save another dollar let me let me let me save $200 to do this rather than say my


God what how much more EAS injoy by spending this 200 2,000 10,000 whatever


it may be is going to bring into my life you know and it’s just like for business

have to pay every month but guess what oh I don’t want to write these emails oh
