Haley and Zach didn’t blink an eye about thinking they could do it better. And today, over 20 patents later, Bella Lash has more than 100,000 active customers and is used in more than 60 countries. 

Childhood Vision “I always knew I wanted to be a nurse because I loved helping people. It’s cool because I actually fulfill this dream at work. I get to empower professionals in my industry with the tools they need to be successful. I also get to use my degree in everyday work by ensuring the health and safety of our training and products.”

Growing Up “I was a total tomboy who loved all sports (especially soccer). Funny that I am in the beauty industry now, right? I learned a lot from playing soccer. I learned how to work hard, be dedicated, and play as a team. I am also very competitive, which has proven to be helpful in business over the years.”

A Visionary Is “Someone who sees the world as it is now, not worse or better than it is, and has a vision of how they can make it better.”
