We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelly Horton-Beeman, LE and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kelly, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The thought of emerging into my own business as a service provider made the most sense to me. I had the opportunities early on to mentor under some incredibly successful players that allowed me to learn the ins and outs of my industry. After a few short years, I knew it was time to start my own business, shortly after FACES SkinGym was launched.

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?
FACES SkinGym has evolved so much over the years. In the first stages of my business, I was focused on offering the latest technologies in my industry, attracting those looking for more innovative approaches to treating the skin from various conditions to include acne, aging, and hyperpigmentation. I’m most proud of the evolutions of my business and the additional roles I’ve taken on over the years as Chief Sales Officer at FACES+, working as an Ambassador for several skincare & supplement companies, launching FACES SkinGym into a virtual platform offering my services nationally. What sets me apart? I believe its the way I adapt to change and challenge. The skincare industry is constantly evolving, I thrive on these changes and tend to evolve at the forefront. How did you get to where you are today? I believe its the grit inside of me, I never give up, I tend to be a solution finder and problem solver. Education has always been a key asset to my success. These days it may be a webinar, audible book, podcast, etc. My addiction to growth is stronger then comfort. What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way? To have passion in everything you choose to do. Passion is every being in a service-focused business; my energy is what attracts clients to work with me. Being a problem solver allows me to deliver the result clients seek. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story? Beginnings, we all have a beginning. I want to encourage anyone who thinks they could never do/have the success they see others achieving to shift their mindset. You probably don’t know their journey, hardships, trials and pain. My success came when I stopped comparing myself to other business owners in my industry. I was just a 23 year old who moved from a small farming town in central California with big dreams. I’m almost 20 years into my journey, it was well worth the wait to be in the place I am today. My brand was built on hustle, hardship and challenges. I have been through challenges personally like building a family and finding balance as a business owner, a financial crisis in 2008, and currently a global pandemic. I am committed to the partnerships and clients, meaning I will not let them down no matter what, I’m here and growing in current times, delivering the most innovative ways possible in my practice approaches.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Gosh, I tend to be a adventure seeker, I love a good aesthetic (ironically), I love people, good food (we are so spoiled her in San Diego with so many incredible restaurantprenuers) and I can’t live without the ocean (so a good view is a must). Living in north county I find myself living inside the sweet little community but know the city offers incredible views and restaurants to explore, Coronado is a must visit for anyone not local. You can’t come to San Diego and not experience the surf culture so a day at the beach would certainly be on that list. I’m a bit of a self-care addict so a day at Rancho Valencia Resort enjoying a good yoga class, spa service and dinner and drinks at the Pony Room to end the day. To experience the cities brick and mortars I would say North Park would be on the itinerary but again I just love my north county community so just enjoying the chill vibe, gorgeous beaches, and fantastic restaurants would make it on that must do list.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
