My first ESSENTIAL tip is to seek the right information. Before diving into the world of business, it's crucial to take the time and invest wisely in quality training. Mistake 1: Choosing the wrong source.
Let me tell you a little story.
I once tried to save a few bucks by signing up for a cheap course and even negotiated the price down (I know, #ratchet).
Don't make the same mistake as me, girl!
Take the time to choose the right training according to what you want to learn.
Do your research and read reviews to get an idea of what you're getting into. Don't be afraid to ask questions either, a well-informed girl is worth two.
Most importantly, vary the types of courses you take to ensure you learn all the tricks to become the best tech.
Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that most of the time, the more expensive courses are the most revealing.
But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying "more expensive = always the best", but there is a correlation.
With the right training, you'll have the right information, which means you'll make fewer mistakes on the most important part of your business - your clients.
So why go from A to Z through all the letters of the alphabet when you can go straight to the letter S for SUCCESS?
Let me tell you another story.
Eight years ago (when classic lash extensions were the only option), a tech told me they applied several extensions per natural lash.
I immediately yelled, "THAT'S ILLEGAL!"
The tech had just introduced me to Russian volume lashes, and it was a revelation.
It taught me that anything is possible.
That's why, girls, you should never take your knowledge for granted.
Instead, always stay open-minded and constantly follow the evolution of our industry.
That's how you'll become a top-notch tech and be seen as a true pro by your clients.
When I first started as an entrepreneur, I questioned many things, including the quality of my business name.
To "reassure" myself, I always asked my friends for their opinions. Bad idea! I always received negative comments, no matter the question, but never any suggestions.
I finally realized that they weren't even my target market, so they didn't understand the needs of my clients. I eventually surrounded myself with mentors who proved the value of their opinion by having already succeeded in the market.
Here I am today, two years after launching Novoqueen Pro, taking its place in the industry, despite the name that didn't please my friends. I'm more than happy to know now whom to ask the right questions.
In short, when it comes to business, listen to people with experience and, most importantly, listen to those you would like to exchange your professional life with (those who inspire you).
That way, at least you know the advice you'll receive will be more constructive than critical, as it's often based on their personal experiences.
So girl, REMEMBER.
