The best way to use Olaplex with JuE Wong
How do you keep yourself motivated?
I keep myself motivated by planning ahead. I have a "to-do" list in my head or sometimes I write them down. I get a sense of accomplishment as I check off all the things I am completing. I also love planning for vacation days and I made it a point to do something totally out of my comfort zone every 2 years or so. My last "adventure" was in 2019 where I completed 300 miles of the CaminoDe Santiago via Portugal with my boyfriend in 12 days. And true to my motivationtechnique, I broke the walk up with a day of R&R in Porto!
What's one quote you live by?
Professionally: Build a team so strong that no one can point out the leader.
Personally: Regrets in life are never about failures but about things you wanted to doand never did.
How does it feel to be a female CEO for one of the biggest brands in the beauty industry?
