We had the good fortune of connecting with Ronit Falevitch and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ronit, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My father was self-employed and he always told me to think and dream big. I’m an immigrant and a hard worker, but I never envisioned myself working for others. I had to learn the business first, so I worked for the top dermatology and plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. It was an amazing experience and I’ve learned a lot. I’m free-spirited and I realized that I can do better when I’m free to do things my way. I’m so happy I had the courage to move on to my very own skincare studio where I can thrive, grow, and enjoy what I do.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
It was not easy. I’m an immigrant and started as an esthetician at a few doctor’s offices in Beverly Hills. After a few years, I decided to overcome my fears and open my own private skincare studio in Beverly Hills. The beginning was scary without clients as well as high rent. Back then, about 25 years ago, we didn’t have social media. I attended charity events and donated gift certificates for facials and baskets of skincare products. One of the charity gift certificates was given to a beauty editor who loved my treatments and wrote about them in an issue of Angeleno Magazine. That article brought many clients to my door along with more magazines and TV stations. It was overwhelming and I thought I was dreaming. I built a successful facial spa with a unique clientele consisting of celebrities, such as the First Lady of the United States, musicians, actors, and news reporters.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love to dine out with friends, and my favorite spots in Beverly Hills are MIRAME – a gourmet Mexican restaurant, Crustacean, and Il Pastaio. Beach lovers must visit Zuma Beach in Malibu, and stop at The Sunset Restaurant to order the avocado fries and chilled chardonnay. Wine lovers – must visit Cornell winery & testing, Also, the Santa Monica mountains have amazing hiking trails with breathtaking views.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My success and where I am in life took a whole village! My photographers, beauty influencers, bloggers, models, web developers, and graphic designers.

Most of all I want to thank my boys Ari and Ilan for their support, love, and encouragement. they always made sure that I won’t feel guilty for working too many hours by joining me and helping.
