Inspired to Innovate in Spirits with Mara Smith from Inspiro Tequila
Mara  Smith is a former attorney, corporate strategist and stay-at-home mom who is the founder of Inspiro Tequila.  Mara began her legal career at a large law firm in Chicago before joining the corporate strategy team at a Fortune 500 Company.  After her twins were born prematurely, Mara decided to leave the corporate world to focus on her family and charitable work. She never stopped thinking about what was next.  Mara always envisioned running her own company and in February of 2020 she set out on her journey to create a new tequila brand.Mara started drinking tequila when she was looking for a clean, gluten-free spirit that fit into her active lifestyle. She searched for a tequila brand that was additive-free with a look, taste and aroma that appealed to her as the consumer. That perfect tequila did not exist, so she decided to create one.Inspiro Tequila was born with a vision to redefine what it means to enjoy tequila, by crafting a clean, smooth and sippable 100% Blue Weber Agave tequila without any additives. Everything from the sleek and sophisticated bottle to the refreshing easy to drink tequila was meticulously created with our thoughtful female consumer in mind. The goal was not just to create a one-of-a-kind tequila, it was also to help make women feel seen and relevant in the spirits industry.  Inspiro Tequila is proudly created, owned and led by women.

Demystifying the World of Microtreatments with Nicci Levy
Nicci Levy is the CEO and founder of Alchemy 43, the first-ever brand to be centered on expertise with injectables and a natural results approach.  Alchemy 43 is an innovative aesthetics bar founded a half-dozen years ago to make cosmetic injectables more accessible and inclusive, as easy as walking into a juice bar. Its โ€œmicrotreatmentsโ€ are minimally invasive, both on your skin and your pocketbook, performed by a team of licensed medical practitioners.  Nicci is passionate about sharing her knowledge and expertise about cosmetics and skincare. Her goal is to emphasize the importance of building trust and loyalty in aesthetic services. As the past leading BOTOXยฎ, Juvรฉderm and Latisse Business Development Manager for Allergan in Beverly Hills for four consecutive years, Nicci has since ventured into launching her own brainchild, Alchemy 43 - a revolutionary medical aesthetics brand with locations in both Los Angeles and New York City. Alchemy 43 specializes in cosmetic injectables or as she likes to call it, microtreatments. Prior to her career in aesthetics, Nicci enjoyed 10 years in corporate cosmetics at companies including MAC, Nordstrom (where she piloted a personal shopping program), and most notably as the Director of Global Sales and Education at Calvin Klein where she was responsible for launching their cosmetics line.Connect with NicciNicci Levy InstagramAlchemy 43 InstagramAlchemy 43 FacebookThanks for listening! ๐Ÿ’ซ ๐ŸŒŸ Connect with the host Mary Harcourt ๐ŸŒŸ Apply to be a guest on the show ๐ŸŒŸ Follow along using #readysetglopodcast ๐ŸŒŸ Love the podcast?
