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

Hi Violet, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I believe trusting ourselves, will allow us the belief system to take greater risks and put ourselves in great areas of discomfort. Loving and trusting, has been the greatest gift I can give myself in the present moment.

All it takes to get there is to overcome the fear and doubt.
Examples in the past that could have broken me, but I did not give them enough power.
Changing friends, cultures, and continents mid-childhood, did not make me be complacent and stay in the same hometown (Targovishte, Bulgaria) as the one I was born instead I came to the land of dreams, Florida. Entering a new school with no friends and different language did not make run away to the familiar. I was just excited for the possibilities to come. My fear of not being smart enough did not prevent me from applying to the very best college in Florida. I found strength to continue my education, and study for months to be accepted into grad school. When I developed my very first product in the lab I found hope, when there was a risk that it was just simply a concept. The risk of someone creating the same multifunctional organic skincare products by doing it faster or better was always on my mind. But Oprah once said “Don’t waste your time in the race looking back to see what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do. You just need to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got, all the time, for yourself.” So I ran Champione.

I didn’t allow anyone to tell me the risk overpowered the reward. All I knew, I was going to win no matter what happened.
Some key points to focus on for me are as follows:
#1 Think beyond what common sense would allow.
2. Get uncomfortable. Do things you’ve never done before.
3. I Make my move before I am ready. I feel like doing this multiplies exponentially my performance
4. What you focus on grows. Even if you are afraid of something, if you do it long enough it will become second nature. It’s like running, the first 5 minutes are the hardest.

Risk encompasses every aspect of my being.
Going to any event, no one would like us or what I create. Theres a risk that people will not buy. Theres a risk the lab might catch on fire. Theres a risk that I won’t get formulations done on time.
Im always trying to improve. The risk of failing before I succeed. Being able to adapt to any situation and trust the process, that every decision I make is still part of the great master plan, then I will never have regret. Perception is everything. Be like the wave or be like a cloud. Have you ever seen one mess up? ~Alan watts.

From my experience, all I can share with all of you, is the greater amount of risk you can take the better, trust yourself, and expect the best outcome will take you further than you have EVER imagined!

My name is Violet and I am the Founder of Champione by Mileva. I am a beauty professional by trade and passion with a Masters in Human Science. From working with terminally-ill kids in the beauty parlor, to helping thousands of men and women discover their greatest power. I’m born in Bulgaria, a place where being one with nature is truly the way of life. Being raised by my grandma, playing with the plants and the animal kingdom I was a kid blasting with self love. Ive always had a gift of making people recognize their beautiful potential and power. In high school, I was a makeup artist for most schools in Orlando. And in college I volunteered at GKTW at the beauty parlor and helped terminally ill kids find their self love. Even if their skin or energy was not aligning. I was the facilitator to brighter days, a powerful role.
Then in grad school, I taught junior lab and learned self love through teaching. To working worldwide with top luxury brands, to developing my brand Champione. A place where I can help people radiate like the sunshine they are through mind, body, and skincare. I have been through many hardships in my life. We all have. From childhood diversity I experienced coming to the states, bullying, abandonment, taking care of my little sister from a young age, to being jumped, to death of many people I loved, to losing my greatest love, to taking a risk to drive cross country with little money in the bank of a dream to make people beautiful with safe skincare, to living in a 300 sq. ft apartment… I always found the reward of my creation far greater than anything or anyone that can ever drag me down.

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.
Favorite Champione places would have to be the Huntington Gardens. A beautiful melody of a botanical library of any plant you can ever imagine. You can get lost there for hours. Then I would take them to Nobu I sure love the view and the yummy food. Favorite trails I would take them to is Malibu Creek it is absolutely breathtaking and vast to explore. Then I would take them to Inn of the Seventh Ray or Cafe 27 in Topanga it is a hidden gem that I adore. Topanga has to be one of my favorite places. Then I would take them to the green there in muscle beach for some Acro or volleyball as that is where my favorite community hangs out. For drinks I do love Perch or some Tulum vibes at La Mesa.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to share my deep gratitude for the Champione Team who have been there with me since day 1. This would not be possible. Shout out to Stefan who is the Champione engineer always fixing anything that isn’t quite right. Shout out to Julian who is pivotal in the support of sharing Champione with the world.
