Another WLL Friend
One of the best things about having a women’s blog is that I get to meet some wonderful women along the way. Among those that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know better is Lather, Inc. owner, Emilie Davidson-Hoyt. Her story is inspiring and one that especially spoke to me because of our common challenge with Migraine headaches. Emilie rose above her illness and created a corporation that is dedicated to providing natural personal care products and educating others about the role they play in our overall health.
She and her company also make a difference in the lives of others by supporting organizations like the National Headache Foundation, City of Hope for breast cancer research, and Reading is Fundamental. Please welcome Emilie to the group of Beautiful Women featured here on WLL by leaving a comment or visiting Lather.com.
WLL – Who is Emilie Davidson-Hoyt?
Emilie – I am the founder and president of LATHER, Inc, a company I began 10 years ago that focuses on creating unique skin, hair and body care products without using artificial fragrances or colors. I’m also a mother of 2 children and a wife.
WLL – What is your life focus right now?
Emilie – I’m trying hard to balance being a mom, wife and president or LATHER and I’m focusing on doing my best in all areas.
WLL – What advice would you give to a woman who wants to start a business?
Emilie – Try to do what you love, but also be practical—be willing to adapt and be flexible with your ideas to make it work.
WLL – What is your greatest strength as a woman? As a businesswoman?
Emilie – I’m a pretty good multi-tasker. I think most women are. We need to be to keep our lives together. As a businesswoman, I think I operate with a lot of common sense and very opportunistically; I look for areas others might not have seen. Even when failures occur, and they will, I work hard to make the most out of it- salvage what I can.
WLL – If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Emilie – I would love to be able to stay up later at night and accomplish more.
WLL – What is your best beauty advice?
Emilie – One of my current favorites is eye cream in the fridge for puffy eyes. Also: exfoliate exfoliate exfoliate!
WLL – What is your best health advice?
Emilie – Stay away from perfumes. I believe that we will all be finding out in the future just how bad they are for us.
WLL – What or who inspires you?
Emilie – My children. They look up to me, especially my daughter; they think I can do anything. It makes me try hard to be the best I can be.
WLL – Describe a perfect day.
Emilie – A perfect day is when I spend time with my employees, customers, children, husband and dogs—and they are all content.
WLL – What does being beautiful mean to you?
Emilie – Confidence. When I see a confident woman, she is beautiful to me.
