Get Into It with Marion Witz

Marion Witz is getting into it! She sat down with The Shopping Channel for a candid interview about being a mother, an entrepreneur, and life working with Elizabeth Grant. From turning 60 years-old to climbing a mountain in Peru, Marion is sharing her insights, interests, and all she’s learned over the years!

Q: What’s new and exciting in the Elizabeth Grant Collection for Summer Beauty this year?

A: For Summer Beauty this year we have together created the most incredible product called SOS Rescue Cream. It’s specifically formulated to help the skin cope with the environmental damage. Let’s face it, it’s very hot and we are outside now so our bodies are outsides…our skin is going to be stressed that much more. Well that’s our exciting new product for summer!

Q: What’s your best Summer Beauty tip?

A: One of the things that women should always know is to stay out of the sun – and that’s really difficult, especially in the summer! Wear a sunscreen if you’re outside and get your colour from bronzing products. There are so many beautiful bronzing products today! At one stage bronzing products would make you look streaky and yellow. But today with the technology, when you put a good bronzer on your body, your body looks bronzed and it looks lovely! That’s where we should get our colour from, not from the sun!

Q: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned as an entrepreneur and what advice do you have for others who are interested in starting their own business?

A: When Elizabeth and I started the company – I think it was 1998 or 1999, we were very naive about everything. We started the business in my basement and it grew from there. People often ask me what advice I have for other people – especially women, who want to start a business. I really say, when you start a business make sure your research the market, make sure that you don’t put every bit of money you own into the business because when you start a business you don’t know if it’s going to be successful. Start small, dream big – which is great! But start small and know that if it doesn’t work you’ll still have your life.

Q: How did you juggle three children and running a business and what advice do you have for busy working moms?

A: It’s not easy being a mother with children and running a business. As a mother you always want to give everything to your children, you want to be there for them and be able to take them wherever they need to go. When I started the business with Elizabeth, my children were older and what I did was I roped them into the company. Every single day when we had packing I made them come downstairs and help me pack all the boxes. They would moan and groan, but I said this was a great way for you to earn money! The kids almost grew up with me in the business, but I always made sure – now this is very important- I always made sure that I was there for them when they needed me, that I was there to take them to wherever I needed to take them, and that I was there to sit down and talk to them when they needed me to be there. Children are young for such a short time! You know you blink and then the kids are grown up. Like now I’ve blinked and my kids are grown up. But I know and I’m pleased that I was able to juggle my time then – it’s not easy, but it’s always about priorities!

Q: You appear regularly on The Shopping Channel and are comfortable with public speaking, you even wrote a book about it. How do you recommend others get over their fear of public speaking and empower their voice and strengthen their expression?

A: Many people don’t know that prior to being with Elizabeth I was a presentation skills trainer and a voice coach. I actually wrote a book called Stand Up and Talk to 1000 People (And Enjoy It!). I think “And Enjoy It!” is really the most important part of that title, because so many people hate giving presentations. And yet if you know how to do it, and if you know how to manage it, it becomes something that you can do so very, very well. Being a voice coach, I think, was a great way for me to learn how to do presentations because I learned that your voice is like a musical instrument, it’s like playing a piano. All you have to do is to learn how to play it, and if you know how to play it well your voice will never let you down. The more you do deep breathing exercises you’ll start to find you can manage that first step of your presentation.

Q: What’s one of your greatest accomplishments?

A: I turned 60 this year! For my 60th birthday I decided to do something I’ve never done before and that was to hike up a mountain in Peru. I asked my friend to accompany me. I had no experience, I never exercise and I’ve never walked before. I have to tell you it was the most thrilling thing I’ve ever done because every single day was an accomplishment. Every single day when I started out and I battled and I never ever thought I’d reach the height that I reached. Then when I did, coming down the mountain at the end of every day and just eating and then jumping into bed was the greatest accomplishment of my life!
