Unboxing Beauty Boss Kristin Voss’ Daily Essentials | Tools of the Trade

– This is some fancy stuff. He just pugs the orange blossom honey. This is literally chocolate. You simply can’t have that. He’s like, “I don’t give a shit.” She’s a woman after my own small, frigid heart. You’re laughing. Are you laughing? We’re done here. Discipline. (dog barks)
(ding) Hi, thank you so much for watching. My name is Jonathan, this is Noodle. And this is “Tools of the Trade,” the show where we look
through curated boxes of successful entrepreneurs. And figure out, exactly
what tools do they need to succeed and get through their day. Now, Noodle is a GoDaddy affiliate. The word that we use around the office is the entreprenoodle. And he was originally
brought in to consult and he’s taken on a
bunch of different roles. He’s worked in finance, in the office of the CEO, and now, he’s working security. So, this week we’re
going to opening the box curated by Kristin Voss of KVoss Beauty. Now, KVoss Beauty is a
makeup and skincare line that is 100% organic, 100%
vegan, 100% cruelty free, and 100% amazing. Kristen Voss is a Chicago native who is an ex-restaurateur who decided, in the middle of her restaurant business, “I’ve gotta launch a skincare line. “I’m gonna launch something
that’s gonna impact people “and it’s gonna help make them healthier, “feel more confident, and take
better care of their skin.” As a friend’s mother once
told me in seventh grade, you wear your skin everyday. Unless, you’re Buffalo Bill. (terrified woman screams) Anyway, let’s get into the box! So, I don’t know if you remember the box that we had last time. It was white, it was covered in words like “fragile” and “be careful.” And this one, it could very
well say that underneath. But, they decorated it
with silver wrapping paper and a bunch of branded
stickers that they had made of me and Noodle’s face, which I’m totally thrilled about. They did go a little overboard, but nothing succeeds like excess, right? The Dowager Countess said that. Now, the first thing
we’ve got in this box. Oh my God. (laughs excitedly) I don’t know anything that’s in here! So the first thing we’ve got, it’s a Filter-Drip Coffeemaker. Oh, these are those fancy things that I see at startup offices. So what I think is really cool about this, not only because I am a
coffee drinker myself. Although recently, I’ve
had to switch to decaf because caffeine makes me start to white-knuckle it after 10 minutes. This is the best way that I have figured out how to get going throughout my day. I know a lot of people run. I’m not gonna run, it’s
seven o’clock in the morning. But I can do this! And I love the idea that Kristin, someone who worked as a restaurateur, and has started her own skincare line, she is no stranger to burning
the candle at both ends. And I think this is, not only indicative of the hard work that she does, but, also the way that she
likes to treat herself. This is some fancy stuff. You can see on the side. I don’t know what it says, but this is super fancy right here. And I’m really excited
this is in this box! Okay, the next thing we’ve got in the Kristin Voss box… Oh my God, what am I gonna pick? I wanna pick this, ’cause
it looks like skincare. Yeah! Moisturizing hand and body lotion by The Naked Bee. Ooh, orange blossom honey. Oh no, I’m not gonna… Oh, Noodle! He just pugs the orange blossom honey! (laughs) This must be burned! Thank you so much. Thank you for the new product. Noodle, you can’t do that anymore. A lot of people don’t know this, but Pugs actually let off a small amount of radiation. And they also have a bit
of poison in their snot. And so, he was about to
absolutely erode this bottle. Anyway, what I love about this and I think is really true
for all entrepreneurs, is this speaks to taking care of yourself. I cannot tell you how many times I listen to podcasts or I’ll see a video from an entrepreneur, someone very successful. And they talk about the
grind and, you know, “I’m workin’ on Saturdays,
I’m working on Sundays.” And, that’s very true. But, you gotta treat yo self! How many times you have to shake hands with people in the middle of the day? Watch, paw? You wouldn’t even think
to touch me, watch. He’s literally gonna do it this time. Watch!
(rubs lotion on hands loudly) Watch, watch, watch! Paw? (gasps) Almost! You are so talented! Wow, it’s like when your kid
doesn’t win Little League but you give him a trophy anyway. (ding) So, the next item we have
in the Kristin Voss box, is, Quest protein… What are these? Protein bars? This is Noodle’s favorite thing. This is literally chocolate. You simply can’t have that. He’s like, “I don’t give a shit.” I can imagine that this is really good to keep on hand, no matter what. Whether you have low blood sugar, or you just get tired in
the middle of the day. Quest Bar is on a mission
to make the food you crave work for you, not against you. Wow. Which, I would argue, is exactly what GoDaddy is trying to do. The next item we have in
the Kristin Voss box is… Oh, it’s a scented candle. Oh my gosh, she’s a woman after my own small, frigid heart. Candles are amazing. Because, and I don’t know
if you guys know this, the olfactories, which
are your nose sensors, have the highest potency
of memory retention. So, if you’re walking down the street and you get a whiff of something, you could very easily have a memory from something you totally
forgot when you were three. For example, I was walking one day down New York City streets. And I got a whiff of a smell of my mother’s best friend’s basement. It was a combination of
mold and water damage. But I haven’t been there
in almost 20 years! And I smelled it. I was like, “Damn, I’m in her basement. “And she has to get a new sump pump.” So, this is… Just smells perfect. Between my hands and this? Oh my God, you can’t even smell that I don’t think I
put deodorant on today. I did, but it’s this new paraben-free kind and I don’t think it’s
doing me any favors. What do you think, sir? Oh my God! He’s licking his lips. He’s like, “Oh my God, I
gotta get in that candle!” Well, you can’t. ‘Cause it’s wax. He doesn’t care. Anyway, if you have an office or if you work from home. No matter what, I think
it’s very important to keep creature comforts with you, no matter where you go. The next thing we have in
the Kristin Voss box is, oh, they’re mints! I was…(laughs) I was looking at the…(laughs) I picked up the backside. That was like, “There’s
a lot of words here.” It’s mints. These are mints and I think
these are very straightforward. You need to be fresh
to death to be success. Could you imagine having a successful handshake with someone and then saying, “Hello.” And the breath, it’s like that scene in “The Raiders of the Lost Ark,” when they open the ark and
the guy’s face melts off. That’s why you need mints. But really, this is a
really great something. I keep these on me all the
time, ’cause I’ve got… I’ve been living with
halitosis for six months now. I am a survivor. You’re laughing. Are you laughing? (somber, melancholy music) Okay. We’re done here. No, we’re not done.
(upbeat, whimsical music) We’ve got so much more shit to go through! Anyway, these are mints. Your breath has to be fresh, otherwise you are a failure. The next thing we have in here is a book called “Disciplines, a
Book of Daily Devotions.” Oh, I love this! These are daily devotions! I think having something like this, whether it’s a calendar, a quote calendar, something like that, to
sort of keep you grounded. And to sort of, add
perspective and to remind you of why you’re doing all of this, I think is really, really key. I’ll be having a super busy day. And then my coworker, who’s got one of those quote calendars, will just pull one that’s like, “Remember today is a gift, “that’s why they call it the present.” And I’m just like, “Oh, my God! “It is a present!” And then, I have a much better day. And I think that’s something that this also helps contribute to. And Kristin is an
incredibly positive person. Anyone who can go from
owning a bar and restaurant to launching their own skincare line, absolutely has discipline and absolutely is grounded. Discipline. It’s not even good whiskey. It’s just on the rocks. (ding) Okay, so! Oh God, the very final
thing we have in the box, lemme tell ya. I never liked Becky but
no one deserves to die in the belly of a swan like that. So, the very last item we have in the Kristin Voss box is… Oh, I was waiting for
these, it’s a brush set. I was absolutely waiting for this to come. Oh, these aren’t, these
aren’t makeup brushes. These are paint brushes! Okay, wow. So, I was not… Whoa. (makes flustered sounds) Okay, so, a brush set. I can imagine that Kristin keeps this because she has, she can’t possibly paint on the side. She can’t possibly have any time. Her free time is her job. You know what? I bet she does find time to paint. I bet she is such a badass
and she hustles so hard, because she knows, “I have to carve out “this amount of time to do something “that’s gonna keep me grounded “or is gonna help me relax.” I’m actually gonna open
this to show you what it is. Beautiful brushes. I do not have any artistic talent at all, but I do understand the need to pursue a creative outlet, especially if you’re working in spreadsheets all day. Super important, but possibly repetitive. Or, you now, very hard on the brain. And this I could see
as just being something to do for fun. I hope that these are in here because Kristin’s just like, “When I go home at night, I paint!” But, I wish it were those
balloons filled with paint and then she threw darts at ’em, like they did in “Princess Diaries.” Remember that? Her mom was an artist who lived in a refurbished
firehouse in San Francisco. I’m so sorry, honey. You could not afford that. (smacks lips loudly) Let’s see, Noodle. What do you think of the brushes? (crickets chirp) He’s riveted. He’s riveted, I’ve never seen him take to something like this before. Noodle also is a master painter. I don’t know if you guy knows this, but Noodle actually studied the Classics. All right, that was the Kristin Voss box. Thank you guys so much for tuning in. I don’t know about you, but I am hugely inspired. I am moisturized, I smell good. My breath smells better. I feel disciplined. And the brushes, I still
can’t get over the brushes. I think that’s so incredible
that those are here. For Noodle, for myself, we are so excited to be
giving, to be presenting this to you once a week. Thank you so much for watching! (dog barks)
