This week's episode of Opportunity Knocks is beyond inspiring and packed will first-hand knowledge and experience from a founder with a VERY successful exit to her name. Shannon Nuques's rise from paralegal to co-founder of GLAMGLOW, one of the fastest-growing skincare brands in the world, will blow your mind. 🤯
It all started with a fast-acting skincare treatment and sample jars filled by hand. Nicknamed Hollywood's "Magic Mud" mask, the product snowballed in popularity, landing first in Neiman Marcus and then in Sephora stores around the world.
Ultimately GLAMGLOW was acquired by Estee Lauder, a dream-come-true achievement Shannon attributes to passion, determination, and hard work. A former paralegal, she researched and learned every step of the way, discovering a wealth of creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit she never knew she had.
She could have stopped there, but after welcoming a second daughter, Shannon and her husband Luciano spotted a whitespace opportunity in the baby business. What if they could give children's clothing a fun, artistic twist?
Together, they started exploring what it would take to make eco-friendly apparel and accessories with bold, playful prints - manufactured locally in LA instead of overseas. Gracyn Sky debuted in 2021 with an adorable, artistic aesthetic not seen anywhere else in the baby world.
Yes, I'm thinking what you are...Shannon is simply amazing.
