Tell us about your goals
I have always loved makeup application and helping people. So I turned my passion into a business.
- What motivates you?
Describe your mission passion
My clients are my motivation, always trying to be my best and doing the best that I can for them. Seeing a bride or a speakers face when I am done and helping bring the confidence out in them.
- What was the most fulfilling moment that happened to you?
What is it that you love most about what you do?
I have had so many great moments. I had a client that I worked with for her engagement photos, then her wedding, and then a few years later her maternity and newborn family photos. The fact that I have been with her at all of her biggest life-changing moments is amazing.
- What was the hardest/toughest moment you had to deal with?
Obstacles you faced when dealing with bureaucracy, permits, funding, etc. Something you would like to point out to anyone who might be starting their own organization.
The hardest moments have been the business end, insurance, changing states and getting licenses transferred all of the red tape bureaucracy legwork.
- What separates you from the rest? Why you?
My passion for my clients, for my work and the love I have for it.
- Are you involved in local community, and if yes, how?
Yes, PTSA Board Member, also on the board of a women’s group Suits Stilettos and Lipstick and we raise money for charities in south Florida.
- Where do you see your business in 5 years?
I see myself continuing to work with clients, speaking engagements and my new product line of brushes is a success.
- Anything else you would like to add?
Thank you for this opportunity and consideration.
