CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY WITH A Q&A ON THE VERY WOMAN WHO MADE VANI-T ALL THAT IT IS TODAY - TANIA WALSH. FOR SHE IS A REFLECTION OF STRENGTH, INDEPENDENCE, SELF LOVE, COMPASSION AND IS A TRUE ROLE MODEL TO ALL OF US.
What first inspired you to start your business? I’ve had an entrepreneurial spirit from a young age selling home-made natural lip balms to neighbours. I went on to study Beauty Therapy and Cosmetic Chemistry and decided I wanted to create a product that solved all the usual self-tan dramas such as colour, longevity, fade. 76 attempts later, the world’s first natural and organic based tan, Liquid Sun was born.
What drives you (motivates you) to achieve your dreams in life? I’m always studying personal development so this has had a dramatic effect on my outlook on life. My 3 beautiful children are one of my greatest motivators and I hope to inspire them to be the best they can be in life too.
"IF SOMETHING'S MEANT FOR YOU, THE PATH WILL BE SMOOTH AND FLOWING"
What do you value the most in your life? Spending time with amazing people who are closest to me- my children, my close family & friends, my team at work. Being healthy, travelling & experiencing all that life has to offer. I value freedom, creative spirit, positivity, and value people who are humble, kind and love life!
What is one of the most valuable lessons you have learnt in life? To always trust my gut instincts and believe in myself. That if something’s meant for you, the path will be smooth and flowing. If there are barriers and everything seems too hard, it’s likely that you aren’t’ on track. Go with the flow 😊
Who is someone famous that inspires you? Richard Branson.. I love his determination, will to succeed, 100% customer focused mindset and his attitude that any failure should be looked at for it’s positives. I love Jim Carey and Will Smith too!
