Proudly born in Manila and educated in Singapore and Boston, Kathleen Godfroy is taking her beauty and lifestyle blog more seriously than ever before.
Kathleen is a start-up founder of a cosmetics company, K. Godfroy Cosmetics that she founded in Singapore in 2016.. She gave up her 9-5 job to hustle for a 9-11 job with no employees to start with. Many people would say, once you become an entrepreneur you can have freedom and flexibility. It is arguably not true because entrepreneurship is stressful, demanding and a lonely journey. To validate her ideas and passion that she isn’t just another ‘pretty mum’ who wants to have a cosmetics line, she pitched to international contests. Her start-up was awarded as the Biggest Idea Winner by Singapore Polytechnic Graduates Guild in 2017, Top 3 Global Tech Awards by Accenture and Finalist in Start-Up World Cup India Finale. Today, the start-up has co-founders, shareholders, expansion investor, logistics partners and employees.
There are no big secrets in doing start-up but consistency, focus, finding your niche, and a lot of hard work. Kathleen understands the game and she’s a calculative risk taker.
Her lessons in leadership has been recognized by Strait Times Newspaper, her #MumtrepreneurGoals are shared on Singapore Child’s Magazine and her ability in business has been awarded. She received a scholarship for Masters in Business from a private equity firm and currently, she is studying her MBA at the University of Wollongong through an international school, PSB Academy in Singapore.
“I do not have a time for drama and gossips. What I have a time is to build the family business and to solve every problem. My character is always mistaken as ‘too proud’ because I’m outspoken and I can be confrontational but I’m not argumentative and I do not compete unnecessarily. I’m always has been respectful and supportive, I choose my fight, the right competition, and I always try to help others recognize their fullest potential.”
Kathleen’s big dreams are to be a venture capitalist and to help start-up founders to build their business.
I love pink and everything feminine.
Here’s my son, Bradley. He is my inspiration in life to stay good and be a happy person that I am today.
