Episode 20 Interview With Dawn-Marie Mutell Welcome back to Heartrepreneur® Radio. I’m really glad you tuned in. It’s Terry Levine Chief Heartrepreneur. And I have someone I’m really anxious to interview today. I have so many questions so her name is Dawn-Marie Mutell and she is the founder and CEO of Life’s Necessities and Body Luxuries. So it’s a home, body, soul and lifestyling business and I had to have her on the show when I heard that description. I was like Wow! They actually call her a life commodities broker and she is very versatile. She’s a wardrobe styler, a personal stylist and a makeup artist. I want all of that. I’m just saying. She has over 25 years experience in fashion, entertainment, beauty and even an event planning businesses. As a young model and a dancer she aspired to be a dancer on Broadway and little did she know she’d be hit by a drunk driver at age 22 and her life would change forever. Her self-esteem crumbled and it took many many years to get back on track. And that’s when she decided to help others lead happy, fulfilling and beautiful lives. I am so excited to have you with us Dawn-Marie. Thank you so much for joining us. Dawn-Marie: Thank you Terry I’m honored to be here. Terri: I have to tell you I’ve gotten your file when we scheduled this and I looked you up on line and was all excited to have you and as I was reading your bio I was like Wow aspired to be on Broadway and then I was like oh my goodness. So, how did you literally, I have to ask you, how did you pick yourself up and move forward. Dawn-Marie: That’s really a good question. My parents taught me to be a strong-willed person and so that really helped me. When I was hit everything in the body went down and I thought okay the only thing I had was to aspire to be on Broadway. So I didn’t have a Plan B and my dad would always say have a Plan B. So I didn’t know what to do. Thankfully I knew how to type. I was able to get a job actually working at some music store after that. So that helped me pick up a different avenue of where I would go. So I wound up working in music business for quite a while. I said okay I can’t dance but I can still groove to the music. And so that kind of kept me going. But I still felt there was something missing in my life and one of the things I loved to do was to help people and watch them flourish. If I can lift somebody’s spirits then I’m a happy camper. I tried to find ways to do that and I started to do commercials and getting people in the music industry networking to different nightclubs and so I could connect with one another because I’m a connector. And I still felt like I’m still not doing what I wanted to do so I wound up finding a program at FIT to be an image consultant certification for 2 years and I thought OH this is it. I love fashion. My mom was a clothes horse and she really got me into fashion when I was a kid. Being a model when I was younger I was around makeup and fashion and I thought this could be a really great fit for me and that’s how I got into it and kept it going. Terri: Wow that is really cool. Thank you. I always find it interesting when we are doing our thing and life throws up some kind of crazy curve ball. We never know what the heck life has in store. And not everyone can pick themselves up and keep and go forward and what I love is not only did you do that, but then you made that decision, I’m going to help others. So what is it exactly that you do? I’m fascinated. Dawn-Marie: Well I help men and women take the pain out of trying to get ready everyday. Whether they work out of an office or if you an entrepreneur and you have to go deal with clients or you maybe are a public speaker. First impressions, I mean it used to be 30 seconds, now it’s like 3 seconds, you have to make a great impressions.
