Meet Aishetu Fatima Dozie, Founder and CEO, Bossy Cosmetics Inc.

Where are you located? 

Palo Alto, CA

Tell us about what you do professionally? 

I am building a women’s empowerment, mission-driven business that operates as a beauty brand. Bossy Cosmetics ignites confidence in ambitious women through high-quality content, cosmetics, and essential services.

Describe your personal brand in three words. 

  • Ambitious
  • Courageous
  • Inspiring

What is something that many people do not know about you that you are proud of?

For some reason, people think I am fearless. I have no idea why. I talk a lot about imposter syndrome and how I have struggled with it my entire life. I prefer to lean towards being courageous, rather than live my life avoiding fear. For me, fear is such a natural feeling and I have learned how to move ahead in spite of it – I don’t let inertia set in on my dreams.

Meet Hannah Wrathall, Founder at Wrapp Consulting.

Where are you located? 

United Kingdom

Tell us about what you do professionally? 

Over the years, I have honed my skills in communications thanks to the time I have spent working at top agencies, working on projects for leading brands, in the Tech/Health and Wellbeing spaces. These days,  I use my expertise to help tell authentic stories of modern womanhood. I help Women’s Health and Femtech brands showcase their innovation to the world.

Describe your personal brand.

  • Upfront
  • Empowering
  • Compassionate  

Share a piece of advice or a lesson you wished you learned earlier in your career.

I wish I had known earlier that it is okay not to have all the answers yourself. In recent years, I have come to realize that asking for help or seeking support is not a sign of weakness. These days, I rely on my coach and network of friends and family to support me. I am at my best and feel my most creative when I am bouncing ideas around with others.

Tell us about a recent experience that has sparked growth, new insight, or played a role in your professional development?

After my children left for college (leaving me an empty nester), I came to the realization that I had been acting on autopilot for years. I made a conscious shift to live intentionally became intentional and began a personal journey of self-discovery and internal growth. My confidence increased and I found the courage to share my story. This inspired me to encourage others to do the same. I became a life coach, author, and speaker.
