[ep 32] Sustainable Beauty: 4 Tips to Become a Better Consumer with Monique Hines
Environmental sustainability is the responsibility to conserve natural resources and protect global ecosystems to support health and wellbeing, now and in the future. There is a massive impact on the earth from hard-to-recycle cosmetic packaging, as well as ingredients in the products that aren’t just harmful to the planet (particularly aquatic and marine life) but also to us! It really all comes down to self-regulation and making “cleaner” choices can help preserve us and the earth. There are four key things I think we can do as consumers to improve sustainability as we shop for, wear, and dispose of makeup and beauty products: 1. Build Your Own & Refillable Palettes 2. Sustainable Materials in Packaging 3. Recycling & Repurposing Cosmetic Materials 4. Sustainable, Clean, & Cruelty-Free Formulas Memorable quote from the episode "The idea of sustainability made me be more responsible. I read labels now, and I've started to research."

[ep13] Goal Planning: Do PowerSheets Really Work?
Rarely does something impact my life the way Cultivate What Matters’ PowerSheets has and ::spoiler alert:: I am totally in love! Trust me. In this podcast episode, I want to share a little bit more about how PowerSheets helped me, how the whole thing works, and why this product (and process) meant so much to me, especially this year. 2018 was a really rough year for me. In fact, at the start of 2019 I was feeling like I was on my last leg. I bit the bullet and bought the PowerSheets, hoping that this “goal planner” was the thing I needed to get back on track. Ultimately, the goal of PowerSheets is to, as the name of the company suggests, Cultivate What Matters throughout the year. Studies have shown that once you write down a goal, you’re 42 percent more likely to achieve it. The PowerSheets are laid out so that you start by writing down your big goals, then you break them down into smaller “action plans” so they’re even more likely to come to fruition. Last October, I went back to the beginning of the book and looked at my 2019 goals and realized that I ACTUALLY ACCOMPLISHED ALL MY GOALS! I would say that PowerSheets is, hands down, the best investment I made in my business last year. I did masterclasses, went on an expensive retreat, and I invested a ton into my business and myself. While I loved each of those experiences and took a lot away from them, PowerSheets is the BEST thing I did! You can read the full show notes (and get the affiliate link to buy PowerSheets if you want to) right here: http://nataliesetareh.com/2019/12/16/cultivate-what-matters-powersheets-did-they-really-work/ If you have a beauty question you'd like me to answer in an upcoming episode, please feel free to fill out this form.

You have really really busy times or really really slow times, and I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the highlights from this year while I’m in my slow season. This reminds me that I should give myself a pat on the back and not worry too much that it’s “slow”. You also deserve a pat on the back Because when you think of this entire year and reflect on all the things you’ve done, I’m sure you also can be very proud of that! hope this episode inspires you to create your own year in review and share with your audience.
