Show Notes

The Opportunity Knocks podcast is going international again! This time we're headed to Europe to speak with Kate Shapland, the Founder and Creative Director of Legology.

Kate’s been well known in the beauty industry since the 90s when she started her beauty writing career at Harpers Bazaar (then Harpers & Queen), where she worked for fashion and beauty luminaries Hamish Bowles and Leslie Kenton. She subsequently worked for Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire, and national newspapers including the Daily Mail, the Sunday Telegraph, and the Daily Express as a columnist. She has been awarded Best UK Beauty Journalist and National Newspaper Beauty Journalist four times, and received an Achiever’s Award from Cosmetic Executive Women in 2010 for her contribution to the beauty industry as a journalist and entrepreneur. Needless to say, she's known as an expert in the most prestigious beauty circles of Europe. And that enabled her to spot a whole in the industry - 🦵LEGS🦵 So Kate developed Legology, the world’s only dedicated leg care brand. 

Legology delivers leg care that makes a real difference to common leg issues and provides a true feel-good experience for the wearer. With an emphasis on lifestyle and the lymph, Legology enhances the body’s own cleansing process to improve leg contours and care.

Listening to her tell the story of transitioning from acclaimed writer to product developer and entrepreneur will have you ready to take on your own major life or career transition. She dives into:
🔸 Building a good team
🔸 Funding her dream
🔸 How intuition is so important for entrepreneurs
🔸 Work/life balance
🔸 And of course, her top 5 core values!

Kate was so open during this podcast and you're guaranteed to learn something today from our chat. And trust me, you must try Legology's products. They are the definition of a game-changer.
