By successfully merging her love of fashion and entrepreneurship under one umbrella Quintana proves that with the right formula you can have it all. I had the chance to chat with this diva and she went completely bad ass on me  sharing her journey  and great tips for you emerging beautynistas.  Listen up Quintana speaks now………

 Q. The story of  Holistic Fashionista is very compelling; How did you overcome the obstacles and stay committed to your entrepreneurial dream?
A. I stopped following the rules. I stopped listening to everyone else. My commitment was never a problem; I am a highly motivated person and always have been. The biggest obstacle I overcame was learning how to blend each of my LOVES into a cohesive brand. From there it was just about getting to know my audience better so I could improve my marketing strategies.
Q. In the initial phases how did you balance doing what you love and making money?
A.  I had a part-time job until my business was earning a steady income. Because I am a highly impatient person, when I wasn’t crunching numbers (i was a freelance bookkeeper for years!) I worked day and night on my business. This included waking up at the crack of dawn and staying up really late. Then I quit my day job and never looked back.
Q. Can you please explain what Holistic Fashionista is and how skincare professionals and boutique spa owners could use it to help transform their careers and businesses.
A. Holistic Fashionista is the #1 online destination for entrepreneurs who are ready to create, market, and launch a luxury brand. If you have a business that is ready to go deluxe, (whether you’re a boutique spa, skincare professional, or otherwise) then we can help you in many different ways: online trainings and courses, monthly masterclasses, weekly challenges, and one-on-one coaching. I pride myself in offering the best internet marketing programs available! In addition, our clients are Club Members with Holistic Fashionista, that’s where we work our magic and make new friends. 🙂
Q.  How does it feel to successfully merge your passions for fashion and entrepreneurship together and do what you love everyday?
A. Today, I am really proud to say I am a rebel, risk-taking comes with the entrepreneurship territory. Everyone told me I couldn’t merge everything I love to do into one business and that really bothered me. I am happy all the handwork paid off,  I still work like a crazy person, but I do love every second— even when something goes haywire, I learn, grow and that makes me that much better at running a business and being a leader.
Q. What advice can you share with professionals who are challenged with the passion vs. profits dilemma.  How can they turn their passion into profits and get out of the rut.
A. The best words of wisdom I could give is to discover your Signature System. This is the problem I help entrepreneurs solve, because I once had the same lingering pain. To learn more about Signature System, please visit http://tinyurl.com/aq-signature
Q. If you had to choose between profits and working inside of your passion which one would you choose and Why?
A. I am in business to make money. If my passion wasn’t turning into profits, I’d continue to refine it and get clearer about what problem my product/program solves and who needs it solved. It always goes back to those questions.
Q.  I  see some strong parallels with you and Sophia Amoruso (Author #Girlboss and NastyGal CEO) what can you share with other girl bosses about business and building a brand.
A. Be original. Be a trendsetter. And don’t follow the rules! Break as many as possible and get comfortable with the occasional hate mail—all that means is it’s working and forget about the naysayers. Your creativity will set you apart, so use it often, but no matter what, keep going, and remember even when you reach your goals — always stay humble.
Q.  Fill in the blank……..The best business mistake I learned was…….
A. I have all the answers inside of me… It just takes something fabulous to inspire me to see (and believe) it loud and clear.
Q. Do you have any plans for hosting any one day workshops or events outside of LA and New York?  We would love to see you around town.
A. I kinda pride myself in being the Internet lady. I do offer a live VIP Training once a year, but other than that, for now I stay on the down low. As much as I love my clients and tribe, I’m quite the introvert. However, we are working hard to put on a Holistic Fashionista annual gala, so we hope to see you then!
Q. What did you do to build an audience for your brand?
A. I built my brand by sitting my ass down every single day and becoming BFF’s with social media. This included meeting people (virtually) I’d never met before, sending tons of emails, online networking, friending like-minded people on Facebook, and being myself. I also made sure to unfollow, delete, and unfriend those who became distractions, were not my people, or irritated me. It’s a little unsettling at first how many people won’t be onboard, but the flip side is there are TONS of people who will. Those are your peeps!
Q.  You have some exciting opportunities in January and ongoing events please tell us about them
A. My business coaching program, Signature System is going deluxe. Signature System is the program I created 3 years ago when I felt down-and-out about my business; I was struggling to get clients and I’d spent a ridiculous amount of money on coaching, info products, and attending seminars desperately trying to get my problem solved. It’s a program that is designed to help over-achieving entrepreneurs take their genius (aka: brain chaos) and organize it into soft and hard skills so we can organize the genius into a system that solves an urgent problem in the market. From there we create your products, programs, branding plan, and marketing strategy to reach a global audience. It’s been a crazy successful coaching program and I don’t think it’s going away any time soon.
