In today’s episode, I’m chatting with Teri Tkachuk of STELLARGIRL all about female empowerment and how she started her company, STELLARGIRL.
In This Episode:
- How Teri got started with STELLARGIRL
- What came first – the community or the products
- How Teri created her glimmer lotion
- A typical day in the life for Teri
- Teri’s favorite (and least) favorite part of her day
- and so much more
Teri attributes her inner STELLARGIRL to the relentless pursuit of an extraordinary and adventurous life. Like many women, Teri’s values were formed from life lessons — some hard-won, some immensely rewarding — but all contributing to her own STELLARGIRL journey.
Teri grew up with a spirited, global perspective thanks to parents who taught her that beyond their home in a small prairie city in Saskatchewan, Canada, a world of possibilities and wonder awaited. She went on to earn a BA majoring in languages. She has lived in nine cities across North America, re-inventing herself each time to align with her belief that doing what you love with people who uplift you personifies a stellar life.
Teri’s world travels have taken her to over three dozen countries throughout Asia, South East Asia, the Middle East, North America, South America, Africa and Europe and they all have taught her that women living in different cultures and countries have much more in common than not. In her career, that belief motivated her to support women from all walks of life as they reach for their own “gold.” She’s held positions as a fashion editor, a television style host, a wardrobe stylist, a fitness and commercial print model, a personal trainer, and bolstered superstars during her tenure in talent management.
Today, Teri lives and works from Wisconsin with her love and their four children. She is an entrepreneur, model, charity advocate and, as co-founder of Stellargirl, a champion of women who strive to live their individual “stellar-ness” through truth, strength, laughter and compassion.
