Where It All

Obsessed With Everyday Glam

Ethel Emmons is a woman who gets things done. Never one to let something get in the way of pursuing her goals, her life is fueled by tenacity and determination. As a result, she’s experienced significant success as a global technology executive, skincare brand owner, and now, the founder and CEO of a startup called ‘The Glam Daily‘ or TGD for short.

Ethel was born in the Philippines and lived there until finishing her business degree. When she set foot on U.S. soil, she had nothing but $25 in her pocket and a dream of becoming a software engineer at Microsoft. “I wanted to work for Bill Gates.”

At the time, she was working on a project in San Francisco with one of the Big 5 consulting firms, and when it came to an end, she began seeking other opportunities that would allow her to stay in California.

“It was during the time of the .com boom, and there were lots of opportunities,” she says. Unfortunately, “There was no online job board or anything like that at the time.”

Every day, Ethel would buy numerous newspapers and carefully go through the employment ads until eventually landing a role with a tech startup called Netscape.

“It was a real jumping-off point for me. I also realized that your imagination is your only limitation. In the U.S., you have everything you need to be successful,” she says.

How TGD was

She received her MBA in Computer Information Systems, Electronic Business, and Management Sciences from Cal State U. Her learner mindset and insatiable thirst for knowledge took her to the various Executive programs at MIT Sloan, Cornell, Stanford, and Columbia Universities, eventually establishing herself as a senior technology executive at one of the Global Fortune 500 companies.

After a successful career, personal experiences, and a burning desire for change led her to pursue a different passion: Making clean and plant-based skincare more inclusive and accessible.

Authenticity matters

She left her job to attend Formula Botanica, a leading accredited school for organic cosmetic science based in the UK, where she earned a diploma in Beauty Brand Business Management. In 2020, she launched Skin Beautiful Organics.

During this time, she became familiar with the challenges brands face when reaching new audiences and receiving genuine feedback that could influence product-related decisions. Sure, she could pay an influencer to snap a photo with her product, but that wasn’t the same as an unbiased individual sharing their opinion and true word-of-mouth.

TGD was born

As a result, The Glam Daily was born – providing brands of all sizes with the ability to engage directly with consumers, specifically those in Gen Z, who can give honest feedback.

Consumers then benefit from brands creating products that they want to use. Brands hear directly from their customers about what’s working and what’s not. The net result: innovative products that solve the customer’s pain points and brands winning the hearts and minds of their customers.

Although she’s never worked with Bill Gates, Ethel’s commitment to herself and her success has taken her farther than she could have ever dreamed.

Ethel has so much to offer. Her unique stories of survival. The rocky roads she’s traveled. Her defiance of stereotypes. The wrong turns, the right choices, the life lessons she wishes she could tell her 20-year-old self. Her admirable confidence. Her resilience. Her raw voices of authenticity. These are all values she knows she shares with so many others, which is why she’s proud to be building a global community of visionaries and people who refuse to settle for less than what they deserve – the best.


– that’s how TGD was born. Today, we’re connecting brands and shoppers around the world to be part of the authenticity movement. They all meet in the middle to fuel our global community of next-gen thinkers, trailblazers, and game-changers who want to create a better world through inclusiveness, diversity of opinions, and authenticity.
