Today we are honored to introduce you to Indie from Indie Lee.
Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.
Hello there! My name is Indie Lee and I’m the founder of the eco-chic, namesake, skincare collection for face and body. On April 22, 2009, I survived a major surgery (against all odds!) to remove an environmentally derived brain tumor. After the surgery, I awoke with a new outlook on life and the passion to create a special subset of sustainably stylish skincare that not only benefits the environment, but also supports the wellbeing of others. My mission is to show others that what you put on your body is just as important is what you are putting in it.
We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?
I am the quintessential example of this! Before the brain tumor, I wasn’t following my dream. The tumor helped me realize that life is precious – and a gift! My health issues turned into my life’s purpose and I see them as a constant reminder to stay true to my mission of educating others on the importance of caring for your body from the inside out. I believe that one of the greatest gifts in life is the ability to help others find inner peace. I spread that mission with joy and positivity, because that’s what I love to do – and that’s who I really am.
Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly believe that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?
I find beauty and happiness everywhere – the bud of a calendula flower, a footstep in the sand, the positive switch transition of someone switching to natural products. Most of the beauty that I find is rooted in nature because that’s where I feel the most connected and at peace.
On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?
Spend a bit of time in my greenhouse. Or, I’ll pick up the phone and connect with a few customers who have questions about the products or are going through their own health issues and need support.
What are you most grateful for?
The team I have here with me at Indie Lee. I wouldn’t be where I am without them. And, I’m grateful for the overwhelming support of my products. Lastly and most importantly, my two children. No matter what, they are my greatest achievement.
