We had the good fortune of connecting with Vivian Lamolli and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Vivian, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
As a creative with a core message in healing and inspiring others, I realized that being multi-faceted in the entertainment industry along with educating others in the health & wellness world go hand in hand. Things may not always be certain in our world, but one major thing we can take control of is a holistic and wholesome approach to life. I decided to launch my Arbonne business because it occurred to me that I was ready to take control of more than just my acting career. Arbonne is a B-Corporation Brand that believes in giving everyone the tools to flourish from the inside out with 100% certified vegan products that are completely consumable. From skincare, to nutrition, haircare, makeup and most importantly the education to thrive with a clean and healthy lifestyle, I realized that beginning my own business and launching into something so positive for our world today was and will forever be a no-brainer. Love being my own all-around boss woman!!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I think the thing that makes me most proud today as an actor, producer, wellness & lifestyle coach is that we WOMEN continue to conquer the stereotypes of men needing to show us the path or lead the way first. I feel like I am just scratching the surface within my realm of creativity as I am now fusing my work as an actor and “putting a pencil to my temple and connecting it to my brain” within producing my own pieces in order to help create jobs for so many artists. I’ve launched my business within the Arbonne Corporation, which has allowed me to be set apart by combining health & wellness with a great track and program for creatives, and truly anyone to thrive in such a fast world. Nothing worth having or flourishing with comes easy, but I can say that it has been all the more rewarding and fun on the way to connecting and working with so many stories and lives of others. The lessons continue to be learned and only make me stronger all day everyday…I overcome every challenge only by the grace of God, and the more I continue to lean on THAT fact, the more I realize life will just become that much more beautiful. It’s been said many times before, but this climb and journey to where we all believe success is hidden is in actuality the fulfillment we search for…if the world receives that from my brand and story, then I feel like I have succeeded.
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.
There are sooo many places I could suggest on a whirlwind day of events, and it depends which city I choose today :)…but let’s go with LA! My best friend Marisa and I would begin with an early Topanga Canyon Hike where we overlook the Pacific Ocean in Malibu. Then, we’d most likely be hungry so I’d say we would need to have a nice nosh and brunch at Moonshadows on the Pacific Coast Highway. After this, if we’re up for it bike rides or rollerblading down by the Santa Monica Pier. Since we’re loving this side of LA, we could get a hotel for the day, the Viceroy and have drinks by the pool then get ready for a beautiful spa treatment at Burke Williams – Santa Monica before getting back to the hotel to get ready for a night out on the town! I love live music and I always keep myself up-to-date on who is playing in the area. So, we most likely were able to find a cool local band getting ready to play on the Sunset Strip! Probably Johnny Depp’s Viper Room or Whiskey A Go-Go! Then we’d settle for some late night eats at the Rainbow Cafe and keep it very Hollywood the rest of the night…either way from sun up to sun down LA has the most extraordinary entertainment to experience and be apart of! A very beautiful beachy day to a Hollywood Night! Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Oh wow! Let me take a moment to say, I LOVE THIS CONCEPT!! I must show gratitude for how excited I am to be apart of such a moving moment and giving credit to the loved ones in my life!! Having said that, it gives me great honor and pleasure in being able to recall and SHOUTOUT to the Heavens the people and experiences in my life that have gotten me to the beautiful place of fulfillment that I find myself in today. I am beyond blessed and I recognize that this is something so priceless to be able to say, to have two extremely hardworking parents that have influenced every move I’ve made as a free spirit and brave artist. Always a YES to anything I set my mind to, and this made it very easy to thrive during my formative years. My Arbonne tribe, the women who lift me up on the DAILY to succeed and reach every single goal in helping to heal the lives of others. My coaches, educators, and dedicated team of industry representation that I call familia more than anything…for believing in me, my talent, and how far it will continue to go. The love of my life, who continues to inspire me everyday with his accomplishments and encouragement to continue searching for answers while staying true to my path of further enlightenment and creation…and of course as I save the best for last, none of the aforementioned names or groups would be in my life today without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, through whom all things are possible. Phillipians 4:13.
