Starting a business is always difficult and risky. However, there are many books and courses that help you learn how to build a strong business foundation. This book, How to be an Overnight Success, by Maria Hatzistefanis, is the ideal book if you want to start a business. The catchy title suggests it can teach you how to be successful but, as the writer herself points out, this isn’t actually going to happen overnight. The book’s author took more than one year to become a successful entrepreneur in the beauty business.

Maria Hatzistefanis is the founder of Rodial, a beauty company started from a small desk in her bedroom. In the book, she explains the ups and downs of running the business and how patience was essential whilst striving to become the favoured producer of skincare products for celebrities worldwide. Those celebrities included Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Poppy Delevingne who all use the products and have worked with Rodial’s founder.

However, working with big names didn’t come easy for her. She was fired from her first job and wasn’t a high achiever at school. But this didn’t stop her from building her dream in one of the most competitive markets. She became successful because she was ambitious, hard-working and had the best team to work with. In the book, she demonstrates how to start a business and how to use the right connections as well as divulging the best secrets on how to work within the industry.

If you are interested in fashion and makeup and want to start your own business, I highly recommend this book. Use it as your guidance for your future business.
