Chatting with Jillian Wright. AWESOME!

Yes! You did read that correctly.

I have had the enormous honor and pleasure of chatting to Jillian Wright Founder of Indie Beauty Expo this week.

You know how sometimes you get brave.

You think what the hell.

I’ve got nothing to loose.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Well just before I went to New York earlier in the month I had one of those moments.

And in that moment I emailed Jillian and asked if she would like to meet up while I was over in the Big Apple.

I heard nothing back!

Until the end of last week when I received an email full of apologies for missing me and asking whether I would be interested in chatting to her on the phone instead.


I nearly bit her hand off.

But managed to send a wonderfully cool, this sort of thing happens to me all the time email back.

We chatted for 20 minutes and in that time I was knocked out by her enthusiasm and passion for all things indie.

It’s great to know that we have someone like her on our side.

Well I have edited and packaged the interview up especially for you.

Grab a coffee sit back and prepare to feel inspired, motivated and proud.

Jillian chats about the experiences that made her set up IBE,

what makes an amazing indie beauty brand,

what trends are on the up and

how UK brands can get involved with the expo.

I would love to know your thoughts on the interview.

So after you’ve listened drop me an email at [email protected] Alternatively post a comment in Destination Beauty Brand.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
