Most recently she is adding author to her title with the release of her upcoming eBook “How To Be Glamorous On A Budget: The modern girl’s guide on looking her best without burning holes in her pocket” that will be released Tuesday July 25, 2017! She created her blog International Heels for fashionable moms all around the world and the response has been incredible! With the success of her blog she was inspired to create her first fashion and accessories brand Julia Jolie Beverly Hills and the line has been a huge hit! We had a chance to catch up with Julia and ask her how she did it and she gave us great tips for entrepreneurs! Enjoy!
Exposure Magazine: Congratulations on all of your success! What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
Julia Goodman: I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit but after I had my daughter, I felt like I needed to do something significant. I wanted to leave something behind for her one day. The first few months after I had my baby I didn’t have time to go outside, it was all about nursing and taking care of my little one. So the internet became my best friend. This is why I started my blog.
Exposure Magazine: How did you overcome your fears when starting your various business ventures?
Julia Goodman: I have the great fortune of naiveté!The best things I have ever accomplished, I did without thinking too much about it. Fear is your worst enemy, that’s why I always try to stay positive.
Exposure Magazine: What advice would you give to someone who wants to chase their dreams but is scared to fail?
Julia Goodman: Always follow your dreams. Ask yourself: What are you most afraid of? What’s the worst that can happen? The biggest entrepreneurs failed and failed until one day, they succeeded. Remember, you have so much to gain: the life you dreamed of!
Exposure Magazine: You have a beautiful family! Many women feel they can’t “have it all” but you’ve found a way to make it happen! How did you find balance?
Julia Goodman: Thank you so much! Balance is all about time management. I have my whole day planned out from 5am till 10pm. I work in the mornings and after my daughter goes to bed. The afternoons are always reserved for my husband and my daughter. But I must say, I have an amazing husband who is very supportive and helps me whenever he can.
Exposure Magazine: You’ve had the ability to live all over the world and you speak 4 languages which is extremely impressive! How important do you feel traveling the world is for female entrepreneurs? How important is knowing more than 1 language for business?
Julia Goodman: Traveling the world definitely opens up your horizon! You can get great business ideas from other countries. Also, being able to communicate with people from other countries is a great gift. The ability to communicate effectively is one of the most important traits to becoming successful!
Exposure Magazine: Was there ever a time you doubted yourself? How did you overcome those negative thoughts?
Julia Goodman: I think, as an entrepreneur you always doubt yourself a little bit. A healthy part of pessimism helps you avoid crazy mistakes and makes you analyze problems objectively. In our society, success is portrayed as an overnight event. You watch Youtube videos where people are telling us that they started a business and became millionaires the next day. Nobody tells you that it actually takes A LOT of time to succeed in business. So the expectations that most of us have going in, are very high. So I too had negative thoughts once I didn’t succeed right away. What I learned is that you should only concentrate on yourself. Never compare yourself to others.
Exposure Magazine: Congratulations on your new book “How To Be Glamorous On A Budget: The modern girl’s guide on looking her best without burning holes in her pocket” what do you hope women learn from reading your book?
Julia Goodman: In my book I am emphasizing that money doesn’t buy you style or glamour. You CAN look like Kim K or Beyonce without spending a fortune. I have lived and worked in the luxury real estate world of Beverly Hills for a long time and I learned many tips and tricks in terms of fashion and beauty. I have seen people with money and without. Sometimes the girl with the $40 outfit looks much more glamorous simply because she knows how to style herself.
Exposure Magazine: Thank you so much for your time Julia and we here at Exposure Magazine wish you the BEST in your career!
