We’re always so glad to get to know our customers better, and learn a little about what’s important to you! We’d like to show you a bit of our own lives, too, and help you see what goes on behind the scenes at Beeyoutiful. Today you’ll get a glimpse into Steph Tallent’s life.
Stephanie, what are you in charge of at Beeyoutiful?
As one of the company’s owners, I dabble in a lot of things! I oversee customer service (which involves very little daily work, because of my awesome team members who take care of almost all of it by themselves), new product development, marketing, sourcing, writing, and creative problem solving.
What do you do every day?
One of my favorite parts of working with Beeyoutiful is that every day brings along something different… but every day involves working through my email and current to-do’s with ongoing projects, usually hammering away at various writing projects.
Sometimes I spend hours buried in piles of books researching some obscure thing, other days I’m “playing” with makeup, and sometimes you’ll find me in the kitchen experimenting with a new product mixture or blend of herbs. Today was all about essential oils!
What can customers count on you for?
I take feedback from our Beeyoutiful friends about what they want and like, and what they don’t like, very seriously. They can always count on us to personally test and use everything we carry with ourselves and our children (as it is applicable).
I hope customers know they can always count on us to seek out and offer products that will be beneficial to them and their families. They can also count on us to share helpful and useful information about how to live a healthier lifestyle, and safe ways to use various natural tools as we learn along the way.
What do you do to support your own health?
My own health journey has been difficult, taking several twists and turns over the years, and we went through multiple miscarriages before I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. My experience is part of why I am so passionate about helping and encouraging others in seeking good health!
Our family focuses on carefully-sourced whole foods in our diet, and we take digestion-supporting supplements to help get the most nutrients possible out of those whole foods. I’m currently on a fairly restricted diet and supplement protocol that is successfully managing my autoimmune issues, as well as doing a fairly intensive adrenal protocol.
One of the areas I’m really focusing on right now is reducing stress and getting enough rest. It’s easier for me to just focus on diet, and skip the powerful benefits of adequate rest and de-stressing along the way.
When you’re not working on Beeyoutiful projects, what’s one way that you enjoy spending your time?
Crocheting with a cup of hot tea and a good British mystery movie are my favorite down-time activities! But usually my non-work time is filled with homeschooling, trying to clean and manage the house, and occasionally putting my ‘black thumb’ to the test by trying to keep an herb and veggie garden going.
