Busting The Overnight Success Myth With Maria Hatzistefanis

For episode 39, I have a fantastic guest for you in the form of Maria Hatzistefanis a.k.a. Mrs Rodial, owner/founder of beauty brands Rodial and Nip+Fab.

In this episode, Maria tells us how her career got started and how being fired from her job in finance inspired her to start her own business. She lets us in on all of the obstacles she’s experienced along the way – including almost having to declare bankruptcy 3 years ago.

Today, that business has a turnover of £25m, stocked in 3000 stores worldwide, and has been endorsed by celebrities such as Kylie Jenner … so if anyone knows about the extreme ups and downs of being a business owner, it’s Maria.

What you'll learn:


Don’t wait for permission


People like to do business with people they like


Sanity metrics over vanity metrics


Don’t let ego get in the way
