With all the current shows on TV, I am looking forward to setting my DVR to the new season of Married to Medicine LA, airing May 3rd.
This season will be one for the books! Viewers will be introduced to a strong group of amazing Black Women on the move, including new cast member; Mrs. Lia Dias…. She’s the ultimate #mompreneur and boss lady!
Lia is all about empowering women and influencing the current scope of the beauty industry. She is a wife and mother of three, and true force to be reckon with! We caught up with the Inglewood native to get an exclusive on who Lia is and the new season of Married to Medicine LA.
Give our readers 5 adjectives to describe Lia Dias ?
- Spontaneous 2. Creative 3. Driven 4. Fearless 5. Champagne Lover
The new season of Married to Medicine airs May 3rd. As a new cast member on the show, what can viewers expect to see from you on the show?
Viewers can expect to see me be introduced to a strong group of women. I had some difficulty (to say the least) navigating so many dynamic personalities. I also think people will see different aspects of my VERY FULL life! From being a mom, supporting my husband’s growing practice, while also maintaining my own businesses.
What inspired Girl Cave LA? What do you love most about the beauty industry?
I started The Girl Cave LA after being mistreated in a beauty supply store as a customer. I thought, “why do I have such negative experiences in stores that were designed to cater to me and women like me”. I took a small savings and started with limited resources and put everything I had into it to grow the business to what it is today. I am most excited that my success in this business does not stop with me. Earlier this year, I welcomed my first franchisee with a location in Compton, CA. To see her grow and do well is the greatest reward and pushes me to keep building and creating more opportunities.
As a wife, mother and serial entrepreneur, what are a few of yourself care remedies ?
With a husband, three kids, and four businesses self-care sometimes gets lost in the mix. Self-care for me is not always as elaborate as a day away at the spa. A lot of times it’s just the small things like putting the kids to bed early and having dessert… ALONE! I try to make sure that at least a couple times of week I make time to have a glass of wine, get in the jacuzzi and just have quiet time.
What’s next for Lia Dias?
I honestly don’t know what next for me! Right now, I have so many new opportunities and I want to make sure that whatever I do next I am passionate about it. For now, it’s focusing on The Girl Cave LA.
