Maria Hatzistefanis started her career as a beauty writer before moving to New York where she received an MBA from Columbia Business School. She founded her ground-breaking skincare group, Rodial, in 1999 by identifying a niche for treatments targeted to specific skin concerns, with evocative tongue-in-cheek names such as Snake Serum and Dragon’s Blood. Maria now runs two brands – Rodial and Nip + Fab – with products selling through 20,000 doors across 35 countries worldwide. Today, the cutting-edge products are available in the most prestigious stores around the world, with support and praise from high profile names in the fashion and beauty industries.
She is also the author of 2 best selling books, ‘How To Be An Overnight Success’ and the most recently published ‘How To Make It Happen’, which provides a real, insightful view into business with practical tips to implement into your work and achieve results.
Within this podcast, Maria shares her experiences as business woman first hand and how she’s built a global empire which once started from her home, many moons ago.
