Dr Rosemarie Ingleton is often referred to as the dermatologist to the stars. She's the go-to authority on all-things dermatology in the media, as well as in New York City social circles and industries such as fashion, beauty, music, and the arts. She is featured regularly on television shows such as Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, The Today Show and The Doctors, and in magazines such as Glamour, Vogue, People Style Watch, InStyle, Elle, Essence, Town and Country and Real Simple. 

In today's interview, we discussed her journey from her early years growing up in Jamaica, through her migration to the United States and how she lived out an impossible dream of becoming a dermatologist and business owner in Manhattan.
 

A few of the questions I asked Dr. Ingleton

  • Let's talk about the challenges you had starting your business... as I understood it, you had no money, no formal business plan and no business training?
  • What were the necessary foundation pieces for your success back then?
  • I'd love to understand your day to day and what you're doing today that helps to set you apart and continues to fuel this success you're experiencing?
  • Could you talk about some good processes or practices for us to follow while we navigate our 'rough' years?
  • Why living a healthy lifestyle and taking care of your skin is so important to you?

The media, especially celebrities on reality shows, downplay the value of marriages. Society today would have you prioritize self before all else.  But I'm feeling a calling on my heart today to remind everyone listening, including myself, that nothing is more important in a marriage than the relationship between husband and wife. 
 
For today's episode I wanted to highlight the impact and the importance that a healthy marriage plays in blazing new trails.
