We had the good fortune of connecting with Terry Carter and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Terry, how do you think about risk?
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The Travertine Spa Collection is a luxury brand of organic skin care and natural body care products. I am a Paris-trained perfumer. We are proud to have been recognized by Forbes, trusted by spa professionals and loved by every day people. I started creating products 17 years ago as a creative outlet from the stresses of corporate America. Plant based products have been a passion of mine since my teens. Now I consult, teach and mentor others in how to grow their businesses. We are unique because I maintain a personal hand in all of our products and create most of the fragrances. We recently launched online fragrance classes on Zoom! We want the world to know that we work hard every day to maintain a standard of excellence in our performance. We create products that we love and use daily.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
A perfect day (assuming sunshine and no traffic): We would start with a hike in the canyons of Crystal Cove. Stop for breakfast at a small café with quality coffee. Spend an hour doing an easy kayak paddle in Newport Harbor. Drive up to LA and search for a great read at Eso Won books. Lunch at Kick Ass Vegan in Leimert Park. Take in the view from Griffith Observatory and have a mellow evening with take out followed by a stroll through the canals in Venice.”
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My Shoutout is dedicated to Lauren M. She is one of those rare friends who points out what you are good at –things you may not yet see in yourself.
