WHERE BRAINS MEETS BEAUTY® | Sun and Soul: Veronique Gabai, Founder & CEO, Veronique Gabai
Travel may be on pause, but Veronique Gabai believes fragrance can transport us on a journey to somewhere else. Her namesake fragrance, jewelry and beauty product company is inspired by her birthplace and the place of her childhood, the French Riviera. After growing up surrounded by beautiful sensation, she wanted to put nature directly into her products, to help people feel better - more joyful, beautiful and confident - and express themselves more authentically. She made the switch from corporate America to indie beauty when the risk of ignoring that little voice telling her to leave became greater than the risk of leaving the corporate pool, and hasn't looked back.   #wherebrainsmeetbeauty @wherebrainsmeetbeautypodcast wherebrainsmeetbeauty.com (http://wherebrainsmeetbeauty.com)
