It’s hard to believe that someone who has built a billion-dollar brand could ever feel doubts about anything in their life, especially when they’ve ticked off all the things. But today’s Almost 30 guest, Jamie Kern Lima, isn’t afraid to get real and vulnerable about what goes on behind the mask. 

Today, she reveals all her doubts, from the, Are You There-God? It’s Me, Jamie moments and past career qualms to questions about self-worth and her body – the last puzzle piece she’s currently dead set on solving (aren’t we all)?

Her latest book, “Believe IT,” illustrates how she became resolute in her mission to, not only, build a cosmetic empire, but to do it her way, even when doors were slamming in her face. She made it, BIG, but found herself dimming her light in the name of “being humble” and not owning her achievements. Today, she wholly owns her story, hoping that it will help inspire everyone out there to BELIEVE they can do IT too. 

Can we get an amen?
