We had the good fortune of connecting with Carolyn Collins and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Carolyn, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I’ve been an entrepreneur for over six years. When I first began this journey, I got into the beauty industry. I opened up an Eyelash Extension Studio named Indulge Yourself Beauty Bar that not only allowed me to help women enhance their beauty, but it allowed me to train women to start their beauty business. I never knew what I wanted to do as a career because I always worked in corporate America. However, once I opened my business and started interacting with people daily, I realized my passion was helping people. I came across so many different individuals daily that would share their personal stories with me in hopes of comfort. I always could attract people into my life seeking advice. My business was the perfect place for that. My passion in the beauty industry came from helping women who needed to unwind and found my place of business as their outlet to let go.

After many years of being in the business, I felt like something was missing. I started seeking other ventures. I got into e-commerce, real estate, credit repair, and then something magical happened. During the pandemic, my life was turned upside down with so many unpredictable changes that forced me to reflect and find myself through self-love. So many people are walking around on autopilot and holding themselves back. When I had this revelation, I had a light switch go on, and I knew this was my purpose. Evolve with Unique is a platform that helps individuals heal from childhood trauma and any limiting beliefs that keep them from reaching their greatest potential. The world is filled with people who are feeling unfulfilled. People who are scared. People who question why they attract certain circumstances into their life. I am here to share my journey and help people find the answers they seek through the tools I’ve used because I know it’s life-changing.

What should our readers know about your business?
Life is not easy. The challenges we go through should help elevate our growth to become the best version of ourselves. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen to most people. My goal is to help you see things from a different perspective. I’ve gotten to where I am today because I understand how to control my thoughts. I know the importance of protecting my energy, setting daily intentions, and setting boundaries. I started Evolve with Unique to help men, women, and children learn about loving themselves first to enjoy each day and live in the moment. The pressures of society can be heavy on an individual, especially for those who don’t take time to meditate, journal and center themselves.

I’ve lived most of my life on auto-pilot, but the day I decided to look inward, it opened up my eyes to so many things. I finally knew what I wanted in my relationships, career, friendships, etc., and that was peace. We try to control everything in our life, but the reality is that life is unpredictable. You can’t control everything, but when you can find peace and stay grounded even during tumultuous times, than you can do anything.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I live in Las Olas, so there are so many places in the area to go to. I enjoy the outdoors and being on the water so my favorite restaurants on the water include:

– Salt7
– Boathouse

If you want to head further east and head towards Fort Lauderdale beach, then I would check out the mermaid show at B Ocean Resort. You can dine and watch mermaids do a show for you, it’s very fun!!

My favorite brunch spots include:

– Blue Moon Fish Company
– Shooters
– Louie Bossi

I am a kid at heart so I love playing arcade games. If you don’t mond driving further north to Delray Beach there is a classic arcade game room called Silverball Retro Arcade. You won’t have a dull moment.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to thank my followers, family, and friends for supporting me on this journey. I appreciate the encouraging words as people see the continuous transformation happening in my life.

The book that changed my life and opened my eyes seven years ago was “The Secret” by Rhonda Bryne. My journey first began the day I read that book. I’ve read so many other great books along the way, but “The Secret” stands out the most to me because it truly breaks down the concept of attracting the life you want by the thoughts we think and the actions we take today.
