Today we’d like to introduce you to Lo’Reece Chisholm.
Hi Lo’Reece, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Beyond Bodie, officially launched in 2020, was founded by Lo’Reece Chisholm, a native of San Diego, California. Lo’Reece, is mother to two handsome young men and wife to a courageous first responder. She is also proven to be a savvy entrepreneur.
Prior to launching Beyond Bodie, Lo’Reece was a full-time student with plans of becoming a veterinarian doctor. However, while she was pregnant with her first son, Lo’Reece began to have a shift in her priorities. “My love for animals remained, but my interest in pursuing a typical career path grew less and less. I wanted to do something that would allow me to be present with my son”.
After the birth of her son, she learned that he had a skin condition that left him very dry, itchy, bumpy, and sometimes red (eczema). The doctors placed him on multiple steroidal creams. The experience had them searching through various skincare brands looking for products that would hopefully offer relief to their son’s skin condition.
A couple of years later, her second son was born, and they learned that he too suffered from the same skin condition as his brother, but much worse!
“Being a mother and seeing your kids go through so much, you want to do anything you can to help them. So, I decided to start making my own skincare products and trying them on my kids to see how their skin would react. Once I saw that their skin didn’t have any allergic reactions but actually responded very well to my creations, I decided to launch “Beyond Bodie Skincare and Aromatherapy”, a more natural approach to skin hydration”.
Beyond Bodie makes lotions, skin moisturizing oils, bar soaps, body scrubs, bath bombs, bubbles, and bath salts, with more products to come!
“Although I didn’t become a veterinary doctor, little did I know, I would be taking those skills learned in my science classes and applying them in a much bigger way!”
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Of course not! Starting a business is never a smooth road, and anyone that tells you otherwise is just pulling your leg (lol). As an entrepreneur, you will face so many obstacles, things won’t always go as planned; the only way to succeed is by adapting and overcoming! It’s like a rollercoaster ride!
What fun would a rollercoaster be if it just went straight forward? Business will move you forwards, backward, up, down, and round and round, but that is part of the journey. One of my biggest struggles along the way has been overcoming the fear of getting out of my comfort zone. Being able to talk about my products comfortably and confidently to others.”
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Beyond Bodie?
Beyond Bodie is unique in its culture and focus. Each product is handcrafted and made in small batches, with great attention to detail, and without compromising quality – aspects often compromised when products are mass-produced. Beyond Bodie is a faith-based business whose goal is not only to leave you feeling good on the outside but on the inside as well. “We apply scripture to our products to help build confidence, courage, and self-worth. There is so much negativity going on in our world today, if we can help spread love, happiness, positivity, and motivation, then we have completed our mission.”
What are your plans for the future?
My plans for the future… Hmmm, that is a good one! The sky’s the limit, and God is in control! I have so many ideas, so many products coming down the line. My plan is for Beyond Bodie to become a household name, globally known! With continued growth, networking, and the building of new relationships, there is no doubt in my mind that it will happen.
