Behind Her Empire Podcast: From $150,000 In Debt To Over $100 Million In Sales

On this episode of Behind Her Empire podcast, you'll hear from Tracy Holland, cofounder and CEO of HatchBeauty Brands. Tracy has led her beauty and wellness incubator to grow to over $100 million in sales, but success didn't come easy. She learned some valuable lessons the hard way, and debt is something she won't forget.


After leaving a career in public service, Tracy founded her first company in grad school, investing every dollar she had to build something that would become the foundation of her business. HatchBeauty Brands works with top retailers, artists and influencers to bring their ideas to life and create innovative brands in the beauty and wellness industry. Tracy is also the founder of HatchBeauty Ventures where she advises young women entrepreneurs on business growth and strategy.

As a mother of three young children, Tracy is a prime example of how you can balance motherhood with a career and that you don't have to sacrifice one for the other.

Tracy's awards and honors include 2019 Fashion and Beauty Award for Beauty Service Provider of the Year, EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017, and election to The Committee of 200, an organization of the most successful women business leaders globally.
