WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast

Welcome to the WANTcast: The Women Against Talk Podcast -lessons in moving forward fearlessly and spreading the (good) word. In each episode, writer, speaker, coach and WANT founder Katie Horwitch unpacks tips, tools, motivation and inspiration to help you shift your self-talk, the internal narrative you have on loop 24/7 that tells you who you are and who you should be. You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. Dive into topics such as confidence, fear, trust, body image, self-doubt, self-worth, relationships, career, friendships, social issues, and more - and walk away from each episode with hyper-actionable steps to shift your narrative from reactive to proactive (as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough). The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're meant to be. Get the show notes + more at womenagainstnegativetalk.com

She had me at "hello." And by "hello"...I mean lip balm.

Today’s episode is with Adina Grigore, who, if you DON’T know, you’re going to WANT to know after we’re through here. Adina is the founder of S.W. Basics, one of my absolute FAVORITE all natural skincare lines – and the author of Skin Cleanse: The Simple, all-natural Program for Clean, Calm, Happy Skin.

So, funny thing about me and Adina – I actually fell in love with her before I even met her, and what’s even weirder is that it wasn’t through social media or a podcast – it was because at my former editorial job, someone sent us a pack of her lip balms. You know how sometimes you’ll see someone from afar and think, I need to be friends with this woman? That’s how I felt when I saw the lip balms.

I know. What a weirdo, right? But here's the thing: there was something so special and unique about the S.W. Basics brand that felt so personal, so down to earth, I knew that could only come from this badass woman founder who was steering the ship. This podcast is actually the very first time we talked, and I think you’ll be able to hear it, she just has this way of making you feel so at ease and like you’ve known her forever. It's no wonder she's in the business of making people feel good in the skin they're in.

In this episode we talk about the correlation between skin and body image, the trajectory that took her from dancing at The Ailey School to having a skincare line that's in Target stores nationwide, dealing with skin issues as an adult and the stigma that surrounds it, and why Adina is so passionate about not doing this ONE specific thing that basically everyone does in order to grow their business (hint: it's kind of like Kanye West's behavior).

She also gets me being more of a Chatty Cathy than usual, but I couldn't help myself - she's one of those infectiously passionate and all around rad people you could talk to forever. (But I did you a favor and kept "forever" to under an hour.)

Let's do this thang!
