Today I choose the work I want to do.
This did not happen overnight.
In 2001, I was working retail in the Mall of Louisiana, at an Aveda Salon. I was still learning and sharpening my makeup skills, and learning to work with different types of people. I can't tell you how valuable that was. After graduating from college and the Aveda Institute, I moved to Los Angeles to start my career as a professional stylist is 2004.
Fast forward to today, 2017, I am a full time, self employed stylist who work on jobs that I truly love. Getting paid (well) to do work that I love is really a dream come true!
People ask me all of the time, how I got into this work and how I get to work on these cool jobs.
Part of it is years of experience and crafting a unique skill set. But one thing that you need to be able to do this work is your own kit!
You can do the same thing!
I will show you exactly how I did it.
Now the time in between 2001 and now, there was a lot of growing pains. I learned A LOT of lessons. Most of those lessons I learned the hard (expensive) way. And I always wished there was just a book I could read, or a class I could take!
Today, there are so many more resources where you can learn makeup skills and more. I developed a resource based on all of the experience that I have picked up in the last 15 years that has allowed me to work on projects that make my heart happy and pay my bills!
This is the shortcut that I wished that I had when I started!
I have been working on this course for a LONG time. The content has been created but I was dragging my feet, afraid that it wouldn't be good enough. But that is not true, because the truth is that this is what I did to be successful and I have shared it with many other people who have also become successful. I challenged myself, as a birthday gift to myself, to put it out in the month of October. So here it is! You can find more info here.
P.S. This whole kit building process is a lot of work, its a slow grind. Im not going to lie. That is how you know its worth it. Creating this course was also a lot of work but you can tell from the short video below, we had a lot of laughs while creating this content for you. I hope you enjoy it as much as Cassie (of Cass and Co Films) and I did creating this labor of love.
Do you have questions? A lot of people asked some already that I answered on a special page. You can even watch the Facebook live to see me answer them! Or just read them yourself. Whatever floats your boat.
