Business, Beauty & Babies
A podcast for women who require a compass in
navigating the different areas of their lives.
Who is Briony Kennedy
In this very first episode, I'm going back to the start of my ten-year journey and sharing the experiences and lessons that got me to where I am today. Tune in to hear about my ventures into the beauty world and how I've come to let go of the expectations I placed on myself as a business owner and a mum.
Navigating Fear & Comparison in the World of Beauty and Business
The rise of social media means that we now have more opportunities than ever to pursue our passions and make a living. But as I reveal in today’s episode, the glossy facade you see online can often be too good to be true.
How I Started Adorn Cosmetics
This week, I’m sharing the story of how I started and grew Adorn Cosmetics. From filling up makeup pots on my kitchen floor, dealing with often harsh judgement from other women, and digging myself out of heavy debt, I’m revealing all the tears and triumphs it took to get Adorn to where it is today.
The Reality of Being a Mumma
For all the mums out there who struggle to get through the day or feel torn between their duties as a mum and their desire for something more, this episode is for you.
How We Can Practice Self-Care
For so many of us, the idea of self-care has become synonymous with massages, red wine and retail therapy. It causes us to feel wracked with guilt and consumed with anxiety over spending time away from our family, or dabbling in our vices. But, for me, the notion of self-care has become a necessity for my survival.
Luxury Without the Guilt
In this episode, I reveal how the beauty industry contributes to waste and how we as consumers can be more environmentally conscious. I also share how we can stick to our values despite the naysayers and how I educate my children about their environmental impact.
Cultivating A Healthy Relationship With Money
In this episode, I divulge my relationship with money and the strategies I use to manage my finances. I also share how we as women can grow to stop feeling guilty about this area of our life and how we can reevaluate our spending habits and set foundational goals.
The Myth of Doing it All
If you’re feeling the pressure to do a bit of everything – all at once, you’re not alone. When it comes to juggling motherhood and a career, plus your own wellbeing, it’s normal to feel like your best is never enough. But, it simply doesn’t have to be this way.
An Imperfectly Perfect Community
Briony shares how she found a thriving community of like-minded women through a Facebook group, how all of us can embrace vulnerability to seek companionship, and her advice on overcoming feelings of isolation in a world that won’t stop moving.
