We had the good fortune of connecting with Carlin Schiedow and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Carlin, what do you want your legacy to be?
What I want my legacy To be know for is the woman that never gave up . The warrior who fought many battles the woman who despite though all the hardships she always had a smile on her face because she loved to Live life and she knew she was built to do amazing things . But most importantly The love she has for people . What I want people to remember me by is my smile my heart confidence and humor . A woman who is strong fearless ,fighter but also has a big heart and loves helping others .
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What don’t I do hahah that’s the real question . A woman with many trades . What I am most proud of is everything that I have accomplished even if they were failed ideas . Why because in everything there is a lesson to learn and to be quite frankly it’s exciting I love a challenge . I do self development coaching as well as having my own cosmetic line and now venturing to a new project coming up . Have they been easy absolutely NOT! NO WAY !! But have they been worth it ! ABSOLUTELY! What sets Strongfident apart from other companies is that Strongfident was inspired by my Real life story a woman over coming struggles in life Sexual , domestic and verbal abuse . Here to help women become the best version of them selfs despite all the obstacles they have faced . To be come Strong and Confident . Leía Faith cosmetics motto is “We don’t follow the trends we follow our hearts and led us to you “ . Because every woman should feel beautiful in her own skin and I learned this very young as I watched my mom every single day as a kid do her makeup and I loved how she felt extremely beautiful and so radiant . I was so inspired as an adult that I enrolled in beauty school and loved everything that had to do to with beauty , like hair , skin , nails , makeup . When I got pregnant with my daughter I thought about all those moments that I shared with my mother and I just imagined my daughter and I would share the same moments and I named the brand after her LEIA FAITH.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Wow .. that is a good question. I don’t have a fav spot particularly because I love a lot of places ! I am huge on outdoor activities like hiking , especially Hikes with waterfalls . I love to be close to water like the beach lakes. .Wine tasting most definitely a must or a jazz club or any club I love all types of music and will dance all times of music ! I am huge fan of trying different exotic foods I’m not afraid to try eating things we normally don’t eat . Hanging out with me is never a dull moment we make the best out of everything ! I love to have fun ! The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to thank God for everything I am today . I would also like to give my self credit because let me tell you I have been my biggest cheerleader My biggest coach my biggest inspiration , but I couldn’t do it with out my Kids they are the reason I do it all for them my family my Bf Armando for believing in me and staying up listening to all my ideas and supporting me in so many ways .
