Thank you for visiting Self Love Beauty! I am Lisa Thompson, CEO & Founder of Self Love Beauty (SLB) and I am so grateful you found us. I also am a Self-Love, Confidence and Empowerment Speaker, Blogger and Coach. I started SLB in 2012, at a time in my life when I was trying to find my purpose, where I fit in and struggling with body image. I start this mission based company to share my story of finding self-love again with the hope of empowering others. I want everyone to know they are not alone on their journey to find self-love and confidence.
At the age of 28, I am continuing to grow in my self-love journey. For so long, fear, what other people thought and the comparison game kept me from being well ME. Overtime, I have come to embrace all my beautiful imperfections.
So a little more about me….I grew up in a small town in Michigan, where I was surrounded by fields, farms and great people. I graduated from Michigan State University, with a bachelors in Communication and a specialization in Public Relations and currently attending the University of Pennsylvania for a fellowship program on Social Impact strategies. I have more than seven years of experience in corporate communication, freelance public relations/marketing and nonprofit planning. I have been a fitness instructor for more than five years and I currently am training for my third marathon. I spend time every year in Haiti, and have fallen in love with their country. I am the marketing lead for a nonprofit over there along with a marketing lead for MMEDRA, a nonprofit that is about prevention of eating disorders. I truly have a passion for helping others. When I am not working on SLB items, you can find me sipping on coffee or champagne hanging out with my best friends, family, nephews or my puppy Denver.
While I still battle many issues like we all do, I am more equipped then ever to conquer them. I fortunately have learned so much about life from watching my friends, family and myself go through different things life throws at you. I have found what love can be, still continuing to write my own story to find myself and seeing the beauty in others. This blog was put together to show everyone that other people around them go through the same things as them daily and to help them find their true beauty and self love.
I love collaborating with others so if you want to work together reach out directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
