Today’s episode is full of goodness and incredible advice from the very talented and creative Giovanna Minenna of Brows by G. We recorded this episode at the first Fempower Live! Event in Winnipeg last month, in July, and while we were speaking, the conversation was so engaging and flowing that I forgot just how incredible it was – I mean, I knew it was incredible when it happened, but all the content and details we spoke about, the rich advice and the effortless conversation that we had, just made it blow by! Upon reviewing it in post production it became clear to me that Giovanna is a woman full of life experience and she is only just starting to take on the world! Giovanna “G” is the Founder of Brows by G and is an award-winning brow stylist and makeup artist. She studied at The College of Makeup Art and Design (CMU) in Toronto, and before founding Brows by G worked for international cosmetic companies MAC and Lancôme. Giovanna has also studied through CTI and is a business and life Coach, public speaker and hosts workshops to inspire entrepreneurs to be their greatest selves. G is passionate about innovation and growth in the industry, training and mentorship, and providing the best possible experience to her clients. G led the creation and growth of Brows by G’s Microblading and Micropigmentation training programs across Canada, as well as the development of the company’s BROWLUXE® line of cosmetic products and MICROLUXE® line of professional products. In her role as Founder and Creative Director, G oversees the company’s strategies for service, training, and product innovation, and assists her team with creative direction and content creation. She has launched and expanded her business Brows by G locally, created products that are manufactured and sold exclusively as her brand, and launched national training programs to ensure the industry standards are met and keep the public safe. Is that not incredible?! On top of that, Giovanna’s life is expanding continuously, her spiritual journey takes her to new places and she branches out to develop other big dreams and plans. The Divine Goddess that I assign to Giovanna is at the end of this episode, so stay tuned to find out who it is – I think you may agree with me after listening to her story and advice.
