Emily Weiss, Founder of Glossier and Into The Gloss
Speaking to the Huffington Post, Emily said when starting a business ” you really have to have a strong point of view and a differentiated idea.”“[It has to be strong enough] to make someone understand, particularly a room full of men, who aren’t necessarily beauty consumers, understand something that is foreign to them and understand why something like Glossier is different than what is out there.” She also revealed her favourite quote: ‘In the end you will discover it was never random.’ “I think that’s another nice way of saying, everything happens for a reason. Your destiny will reveal itself and it’s a roller coaster and you just have to ride it.”
More recently, Emily spoke to Vogue about how her advice to budding entrepreneurs has changed as we near the end of the pandemic. “Everything has changed so much – even what is important to people and how they want to prioritise their time has shifted. It’s no longer about grinding it out at all costs, or about desire – it’s about purpose.”
Despite being valued at $1.8 billion in July 2021, Emily’s greatest moments haven’t been attached to the numbers but rather to the impact she’s made on people’s lives. “If I was to give advice around entrepreneurship now, I’d say make sure there’s a real purpose behind what it is that you’re working on. And make sure you stay really focused and connected on that purpose, and find people around you who are genuinely excited about that purpose.”
