Every Body Holds A Story Podcast

Jun 9, 2021

Today we are speaking with Annette Smith.  Annette is the CEO and Founder of Lip Service Beauty.  A few years back Annette endured a grand mal seizure which began a journey of prioritizing her health. After several dramatic life changes, Annette found herself back in a place where her health declined and learned a valuable lesson around getting ahead of your health versus waiting until something happens to address the issue. Annette owns her own plant based beauty company, is a wellness advocate and is a proud member of the 5am club, prioritizing her own self care on a daily basis. By building this practice, Annette has learned to gain control of her health, function more optimally and be a better human. 


In this episode, we discuss:

1) Self care is giving the world the best of you; not what's left of you. As mom’s, entrepreneurs, business women, we tend to give ourselves what is left over and that means next to nothing. Annette was a workaholic and her grand mal seizure completely caught her by surprise. 


2) It is impossible to give to others without giving to yourself first. If you haven’t had boundaries in place before, then this is an important place to start, and a place where you will experience resistance from others because your lack of boundaries has served them.

3) Annette’s story prompted her to create her own plant based beauty product company as she was searching for products that were safe to use.  Over this past year especially during the pandemic, Annette re-learned that working through challenges, prioritizing self care, and asking for support has helped her continue to grow her business this past year.
