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

Hi Ginger, putting aside the decision to work for yourself, what other decisions were critical to your success?
Getting mentors is the single most important decision because once you commit to be an entrepreneur, you have to have guidance from those people who have done it to show you the way.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
A lot of people come to me because they are looking for a chemist. However, I am more than a chemist as I start my clients off with branding because a cream is a cream but if you do not have the uniqueness to it, why should people by from you. I am trained to formulate with consumer benefits in mind and not just a museum piece when it comes to beauty. I am proud that my efforts are recognized by brands and press as I have been quoted regularly by over 30 beauty media and serve as the breakthrough product judge for Allure magazine since 2017 and Brain Trust for New Beauty magazine since 2020.

My own brand FanLoveBeauty is also a non-traditional beauty brand as we create beauty products for people who inspire, educate or entertain the society as an appreciation and hoping to inspire others to be more like them. Additionally, we donate part of the proceeds to suicide prevention foundation. The most untraditional aspect is that we also invite you to co-create a beauty product for your own celebrity crush. They do not have to be in Hollywood. As long as they inspire, educate or entertain the society, we can do products together as I believe FanLove is the most passionate. We only want to give our role-models the very best.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them to Korean Spa for a full body relaxation with body scrubbing and massaging. Hang out at outlets as there is nothing more fun than finding quality goods at a bargain price. When it comes to food, it will have to be Asian food as there are more varieties to choose from. We can have dim-sum for brunch, Vietnamese Pho for lunch and Japanese sushi for dinner.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shoutout absolutely goes to Daymond John of Shark Tank. He was the one who inspired me to stick to entrepreneurship. He was the one that not only I continue to consult and help other people to build their beauty business from concept to launch, I also launched my own beauty brand FanLoveBeauty out of my respect to Daymond John. FanLoveBeauty is the clean beauty brand for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. We take care of your appearance so you can focus on crushing your goals.
