Entrepreneur and former Shah’s of Sunset star, Lilly Ghalichi is being recognized by Forbes for her successful and growing businesses.
Lilly who co-owns and designs for Have Faith Swimgerie and Want My Look also has her namesake brand called Ghalichi Glam. The line includes eyelashes, fine jewelry, hair extensions and champagne.
“Such an honor to wake up to a @Forbes article on me,” Lilly shared with her fans and followers on Instagram. “As a woman that has busted her ass to make it in the business world, it is a surreal moment for me. I love and thank you all for continuing to support me through my journey. Thank you, @Forbes @sarahpboyd for the amazing feature.”
Lilly noted her parents as her inspiration for success.“They came to this country as teenagers with no money, no family, nothing but the American Dream. They managed to put themselves through college, teach themselves English, and raise three kids. They had no help and struggled for years, but they never stopped working, they never stopped trying, and today they are self-made successful entrepreneurs.”
When asked about what career challenges she has faced, Lilly said,“In the beginning, motivating myself to WORK HARD was a challenge. As a young girl in LA, it’s easy to get caught up in “the life”. Parties, lunches, vacations — it seems everyone in L.A. does anything and everything BUT work.”
“If you want to be successful, you HAVE to put in the work, you have to put in your time,” added Lilly. “Period. As a young single girl, I had to tell myself, it’s not so important to “find a husband”, it’s not so important to go to this party or on this trip, but it IS important to work hard and create myself. It IS important to work as hard as I can today to secure my future. Once I thought about things relatively, I overcame any sense of ‘missing out’ I was feeling and devoted my time and energy into my career.”
Lilly also shared some tips on how she stays motivated and focused.“To make a to-do list, every single night. Write at least three things on that list that you will accomplish the next day to further your dream. As juvenile as that may sound, this advice has single handedly helped me so much in my career.”
Lilly knows how to hustle. I admire her for creating and maintaining all of these successful businesses. Obviously this girl is doing something right. While I’m sure, her stint on Shah’s of Sunset helped boost her career it looks like it’s continuing to grow even without the reality TV spotlight.
