    Divya Gugnani On How To Avoid Business Mistakes, Balance Work/Personal Lives & The Best Advice She Ever Got.

    Divya Gugnani On How To Avoid Business Mistakes, Balance Work/Personal Lives & The Best Advice She Ever Got.

    Divya Gugnani is co-founder and CEO of Wander Beauty – a company creating clean, everyday beauty essentials for wherever you wander. She is a serial entrepreneur, a mom, a business powerhouse and she’s here to share her very powerful knowledge and experience.  Little warning, there was a network issue at first (which you may hear), but that got corrected within the first few minutes. What I love about this episode (aside from the wealth of inspo & information) is the flow. So grab a tea, a snack, and get ready to listen to 45 minutes that flow like a conversation between 2 CEO friends. Check Divya out: @dgugnani

Amazing Information!

I’ve been following Alex for a few years on Instagram & when she said she was starting a podcast, I was already in!! She’s got some amazing knowledge and information based on real experiences!! Love her 💕

Amy June Lashes ,

Alex, you are amazing!

I first started talking to Alex when I started my lash brand. She has always been so supportive. I’ve been lucky to attend one of her panels as well as be on a panel with her! She is always encouraging! None of what she says is fake, this is truly who she is as a person! So happy and proud of you for starting this! Love you!

ClaraDarling ,

The Most Personable Entrepreneur!

I’ve followed Alex on Instagram for years now, and back then I was only interested in learning how to heal my painful and acne-ridden skin. Now I’m living with healthy skin, and she’s progressed to helping her followers find healthier lifestyles. Alexandra has accumulated such knowledge and shares freely…a rare commodity in a world focused on taking. So much love and admiration to you, Alex!
