My career in lashing began from being tired of working my 9-5 (Monday to Friday) and then also pushing myself to work weekends. I thought to myself that I'm working so much, for someone else, and receiving little to no credit for the work that I've done. My journey started in 2014 when I first discovered eyelash extensions. It was then that I took the course and took the plunge to see if this was my calling. It sure was! I grew from working part-time evenings to working weekends, and then to exhausting myself with a full-time job (and a part-time passion). Mind you, my "part-time passion" was making me more than my full time J-O-B.
I decided to take a leap of faith and trust in GOD that leaving my full-time status would leave me with a career that I absolutely love, lashing. It was hard saying goodbye to the cushy government job with benefits and a fantastic pension plan. My dad had always told me "you better not leave your government job for lashing." Sorry Dad. I QUIT!
So now, I'm on my own and have a client base of about 7 clients a day (Tips to gain clients). I'm doing well for myself, and I knew that at this point I needed to kick it up a notch (did I mention that I had a son to take care of as well?). Yes, it was time I stepped it up. Not only for me, but for my family as well. I had a bit more time on my hands but I used my time wisely. I prepared manuals, started training programs, and then... I moved to distrubution. Companies from all over the world were sending me samples and wanting me to buy their products.
After MONTHS of testing, and trying to create something I loved - my company was built. I had uploaded my website, used contacts from wherever I had them and my baby was born - LASH IT.
The moral of my story is this: I could not have gotten this far without the love that I have for lashing. Passion is key to success and finding true happiness in what you do on a daily basis. The more you love your job, the more you'll want to keep going, and pushing to the top. There's no other way but up from here.
