Mireya Villarreal Delivers Commencement Address to Pivot Point Academy Graduates

Giving back to the beauty industry is a deep passion for Mireya Villarreal, Founder and CEO of Pink Pewter.  

Mireya started her "Empower Your Life" campaign to be able to deliver her story of success and failures to motivate others. Her story of humble beginnings and her journey through massive success is riveting, transparent and empowering.  Mireya shares her personal and business behaviors and her roadmap for success.  Most importantly, Mireya shares her failures and how she built herself back up after wanting to give up.  

Mireya delivers a "real" view of what success, sacrifice and failure looks like. In a fast paced world where all the pictures of everyday life seem perfect on social media, Mireya seeks to inspire others by showing them the true behind the scenes experiences of an entrepreneur, mom and wife.

As an active board member of the Cosmetologists Chicago, Mireya volunteers her time to help grow America's Beauty Show in Chicago and help future salon professionals fulfill their dreams of entering the beauty industry through the Thrive! Scholarship Foundation.

"I remember sitting in those chairs after graduating beauty school wondering what I would do next.  Now, I get to help guide graduates by telling my story and providing them some guidance and advice" - Mireya Villarreal

Mireya delivered her riveting story on how she came from a 600 square foot salon to growing an international beauty brand sold in over 30 countries.  She shared her successes, but most importantly - her failures and life lessons.

"These are the experiences that truly fulfill me more than anything else.  Helping others achieve their dreams." - Mireya Villarreal
