Reinventing for Motherhood Beautifully with Cherie Buziak

FROM A CONVERSATION WITH CHERIE BUZIAK ON THE REINVENT YOURSELF PODCAST

The Covey

Cherie Buziak had a cosmetology and aesthetician license plus a BA from Fashion Institute of Technology, and managed global product development for Avon. Then she lost both her parents when she was 36, “which left a legacy for me and my siblings,” she says. For 14 years she “ struggled with infertility” and found herself in “a great position to become pregnant.” She went to her supervisor and HR and told them she “wanted the company to know, I don’t need another position. I’d be happy to leave with a package.” After the birth of her son at 44, she “took the leap and became a consultant”, eventually opening BeautyEdge, LLC “to help brands launch from concept to product.” Now she had both a new company and an infant. “I had no mom to ask, what do I do,” she says. “My girlfriends pulled me through.”

What Cherie Appreciates about Being an Older Mom:
What I appreciate so much is that, being an older mom, I got all of the travel, you know, the business trips, the great restaurants all the big celebrations, I already had that out of my system. So as my colleagues or younger colleagues were attending those, I’d think, “Oh I know where you’re going. You’re gonna have a great time, and I’m here with my son.” So I really was happy that I got that all out of the way, that I had a lot of my local travel experience behind me. Not that I won’t travel again, and hopefully my son will be travelling globally once things open up again, but I’m settled for now.
