Introducing Leta Greene
Confidence Expert, Speaker, and Best-Selling Author
As a trucker’s daughter, Leta, a.k.a. Mrs. HOTNESS™ has learned the ins and outs of the beauty industry from the outside in! She has learned them so well, she has published a book on the content about which she speaks and presents: “How to Embrace Your Inner Hotness: An Inside-Out Approach to a Lasting Makeover,” is a best seller!
She speaks on more than just beauty, however: she talks about life in a way that makes you laugh your heart out! Leta has been featured on major local TV, numerous podcasts as a beauty, self-image, reliance and confidence expert. What does this talented woman consider her most important accomplishment? “Easy!” she laughs. “My husband and children still like me!”
Leta has been through numerous trials in her life, many of which are detailed in her book and her speaking content. More than just a speaker on beauty and image, she speaks on life. How to deal with tragedy, change, and making commitments to one’s self through goal setting that works! She also has mastered an amazing ability to stay positive and choose happiness despite life’s trials and tragedies.
I met Leta at a SeneGence Seminar back in 2015.
I chose her class as one of my breakout sessions. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I became very emotional when she spoke with amazing passion about how with God’s help she has changed her and her family’s life with her SeneGence business. I was so inspired by Leta that I bought her book, How to embrace your inner Hotness. She doesn’t know how she has inspired me to become a better person in my life and with her book I started a journey on self-healing so that I could learn how to love myself. She has been one of many blessings in my life and I am so grateful that God brought us together that day!
Leta’s Thoughts on Beauty
You can be beautiful as you work, cook, scrub and hug your way through the day.
I am not your typical image consultant. To me, beauty is not about continuous maintenance. Beauty is about the right combination of knowledge, product and attitude; then using them together as you season with time.
My de-facto grandmother, Winnie, braided her grey hair intricately, just as she wound kindness into everything she did. I remember her saying that in her youth, she was plain and “no looker,” but she knew she was beautiful. Winnie pursued a master’s degree in her 80s, made cinnamon rolls from scratch and readily gave hugs. I want to be just like her—she was one of the most beautiful women I have ever known. I look forward to having grey hair and the beauty that comes from years of laughter and giving.
Women are often told that beauty is an unattainable perfection. Even the women that we see in magazines cannot maintain that perfection over time, much less daily. I know each woman is beautiful. In junior high, I was 5’9″, “filled out,” shy and very critical of myself. I was quite the tomboy and had the stitches, scars and dental work to prove it. With 82 stitches on my face alone, only my mother called me beautiful. Over time I have learned a lot about covering those scars. I also had severe eczema; not just any makeup line would do. I wanted people to see me—not the scars, and NOT the makeup.
I hope my philosophies about beauty will help you see that it isn’t about height, waist, zits or scars. Beauty is about looking past the surface and knowing your importance to those you love. This is why its important to take some time in the morning to enhance the beauty God has given you. My Aunt Mildred was a wise woman who said, “Spend enough time on yourself in the morning to forget about yourself the rest of the day.” I will help you to learn this approach in your own life.
Leta has the most non-threatening welcoming personality when it comes to training and talking. She is funny, never boring makes us laugh and engages with us. I’m a hands-on learner but when Leta speaks I always go away remembering what she says and mostly how it makes us feel!
Service to Others
Being a Confidence Coach, Speaker and Best-Selling Author is not just about customer service, it’s about looking into someone’s heart.
My work is not about how much I make, it is about the amount of results for my efforts.
It is essential for a mother to have a financial security net. In August 2007, a bus hit my husband while cycling. Thankfully, he survived with no permanent damage and only some impressive scars. Still, the scenarios of what could have played out has haunted me.
I have never been more thankful for my chosen career. For three weeks, I didn’t work as I cared for my husband. Clients that I neglected were forgiving and still placed orders, and those that I called understood. I work with the most amazing group of people: Women!
When you meet with me, I won’t just be putting some makeup on you and sending you on your way. As a Confidence Coach, I will spend the time it takes to find out what your beauty needs are from the inside out. Getting to know you and your routine helps me pinpoint what I can help you with. It’s not just about the amazing anti-aging product I sell or the fact that you will fall in love with your wardrobe once again. It’s more about finding the beauty in each woman I meet.
What one chooses to do for money shouldn’t be only for money. It should mean more, or you have sold yourself for time. We all need money; but aren’t we really working for family, fulfillment, and financial freedom?
What you said is exactly what I needed to hear. You are an amazing woman. You made me realize that life’s what I make it.
Life is about balancing our expectations from the world and our expectations from ourselves.
Life gives us a deck of cards. We can’t just throw our cards aside and say “I don’t want these!” When life experiences come, when we need a card to play, the cards we have already seen played are the ones most readily available to us. That is, we fall back on the ones we have memorized, that have been handed to us by our experiences, family, and society. That is why the alcoholic falls back without mentoring, without a real change. Why the statistical chances of an abused child becoming an abusing adult are higher. All of this is heavy stuff. Are we a pot of destiny waiting to boil over? Or are we in charge of our own future? The eighteen-year-old that leaves home swearing to never return, finds the habits of the past haunt them. The truth is we can’t run away from ourselves.
When we were each born in the shining castle, and our parents the king and queen . . . Wait, you weren’t born into a fairy tale? That’s weird . . . oh, none of us are. Life is full of contrast with difficulty and thrill intermingled. We have all been hurt—life can be hard. Our individual difficulties may not be as horrid as the child escaping abuse. We all know people who have overcome a difficult start in life, but how did they do it? They systematically changed the deck of cards handed to them. Working on the why of who they are, and what they want to be. They stopped letting life events throw them around, and learned to deal with the cards already in their hand, and change the ones that were unacceptable. Changing ourselves is an internal event and not about changing the world. Life is about choices and we can mold how we see the world and how the world treats us. We are the sum of what we choose. I believe in the power of the individual, I believe in our ability to be who we are meant to be.
