    The Wall EP.14 - How Two Irish Sisters Are Changing Oral Care Across The World

    The Wall EP.14 - How Two Irish Sisters Are Changing Oral Care Across The World

    Welcome back to episode 14 of The Wall Podcast! Thank you for continuing to listen and if you're new here; welcome. 

    On this one, I got to spend a few hours with Dr. Vanessa Creaven co-founder of Spotlight Oral Care which is an Irish oral care company that made its name after their Spotlight Teeth Whitening Kit took the Irish cosmetic market by storm.

    Vanessa and her sister, Lisa Creaven, are both dentists from Galway in Ireland. They’ve truly found an untouched area of the global oral care market and have developed a collection of clean, non-toxic, environmentally friendly products that make us look good on the outside, but are also good to our teeth and gums too.

    in this podcast, Vanessa takes us back in time to the launch of their well-known teeth whitening kit, which became a social media sensation. This product started out as something they wanted to offer their patients, but the demand began to snowball, more and more retailers have requested their product.

    Fast forward three years later and Vanessa - still only twenty-eight years old - announced that she and Lisa just signed with 1,000 Ulta stores across America. A coveted move for any cosmetic company and a true pinch-me moment for a brand that has come from Galway. 

    This is not only an intriguing success story from two very smart sisters, but Vanessa also shines a light on some truth about popular oral care products on the market and the harsh reality of what many consumers are putting in their mouths. It was a real eye-opener for me!

    The story of Spotlight Oral Care is the epitome of what this podcast means to me; true success that stemmed from pure resilience and passion.

    Thanks for listening and be sure to let me know what you think on Instagram - @StephanieOQuigley.

    The Wall EP.13: Shauna Doyle Talks School Struggles and The Value of Being Authentic with Your Audience

    The Wall EP.13: Shauna Doyle Talks School Struggles and The Value of Being Authentic with Your Audience

    It’s finally here, Season 2 of The Wall Podcast! Thank you for all who have listened through Season 1. I’m excited to say that I am just getting started!

    To kick off the new season, and the very first episode of 2020, I have an interview with Irish influencer, Shauna Doyle.

    Shauna is a fast-growing blogger from Cork and is best known for her chats on Instagram stories and her blusher. Yep, Shauna’s rule is that you can never have too much blush on your cheeks!

    Shauna started out in retail, moving up the ranks fast in some of the bigger outlets until she landed a job as a makeup artist in MAC makeup. School was never for her so Shauna thought she was destined for a career in makeup and retail. Until her follower numbers started to grow rapidly.

    Despite her current following being at a ‘micro-level’ by industry standards, Shauna has been able to sustain a living out of full-time blogging from her hometown of Cork while studying a master's in PR too.

    Shauna, who by the way is only twenty-two years old, sat down with me in NYC to chat about her journey so far. She was traveling to promote the latest fashion app called Alana, so you could say things are escalating pretty fast for her.

    Shauna is a great example of how, if you’re brave enough to ask and you’re willing to put in the work, that sometimes the answer is simply 'yes'. 

    You can join Shauna on Instagram (@shaunadoyle.x) and YouTube, and don't forget to check out the new Alana app (@alana.app) too! 

    Thanks for joining me for season two and, as always, I look forward to the next one!
