In this episode, my guest Shirley Raines, founder of Beauty 2 The Streetz, schools me on the mechanisms of creating change, which she does by providing makeovers on Skid Row with her ever-growing non-profit.

Shirley started Beauty 2 The Streetz as a means to heal after losing one of her sons, who passed away at a young age. She now considers herself a mother to the hundreds that she services on Skid Row every Saturday.

In this episode, we’re getting into all things skincare, entrepreneurship, and community-building with Nayamka Roberts-Smith. Known as LA Beautyologist, Nayamka is an esthetician who popularized the 60-second rule, and CEO of The Golden Rx, a virtual skin studio, as well as The Golden RX Skin Studio here in Los Angeles. Nayamka focuses her expertise on the bodies of young women of color, a group unfortunately and often neglected by the wider skincare industry.
