It all started when she got fired.
A young girl growing up in a safe environment on a small Greek island, where her parents praised doing things safely and only chasing a job that was guaranteed to secure her future, Maria Hatzistefanis knew she wanted to impact others in a unique way.
Her childhood was never extravagant or luxurious. Her parents were teachers, and they all lived a very low-key and quiet lifestyle.
Then one day (in her 20s), something happened that took Maria off the “expected” path and thrust her into the entrepreneurial world unexpectedly…
She got fired from her first big job.
And she says it was the best thing that ever happened to her.
Maria decided to start her own business, Rodial, a potent and unique skincare brand (she even has a vegan line + uses a shocking special ingredient that mimics Botox)!
She is now a London-based entrepreneur, best-selling author, TV personality, and podcaster!
I was so thrilled when she agreed to be on the podcast. She talks about her life before she made it big, how she actually almost went bankrupt a few years ago, and she spills her dirty little skincare secrets (you will totally love these)!
She also gives the most epic advice for aspiring entrepreneurs that I LOVE.
You’re going to flip over this interview! Don’t forget to check out her amazing skincare line, linked below (I’m even buying some myself!)
