I sure hope so! This is my first blog ( WOO HOO!!) and I share that because right now I feel that it is my time to be ON PURPOSE and share my love of hair, personal development and business with all of my peeps.
When I think about the question, "What is my purpose?" The first thing that pops in my mind is to teach. Ever since I was a little girl and was asked the question what do you want to do when you grow up, my answer was to be a teacher. What did I end up being? A hairstylist AND eventually an educator in the industry! ( BEST. JOB. EVER. ) Who would've known that the desire in me as a child to be a teacher would evolve into teaching hair.
My teaching career started off at Vidal Sassoon. Honestly, it never even crossed my mind that I would be doing this and as life would have it, this career path essentially fell in my lap. After completing an intensive haircutting training program that is required to be a stylist at VS, I was asked if I would be interested in working at the Academy in Santa Monica. I jumped at the opportunity and it has been one of the most rewarding career decisions I have made.
When I was teaching, something inside of me just felt right. Cutting hair and teaching was a dream job that was my reality. There was a time when I stepped away from the teaching part to venture into other areas of the industry. After a couple of years, I was presented an opportunity to teach again. Without a doubt, I seized the opportunity! I remember my first on stage demonstration after a few years of not doing it and I was pretty nervous and was doubting my abilities. I got up there and started doing my thing. Once the initial nerves wore off and I was in my flow, I vividly remember thinking to myself while I was on stage, that this was exactly what I was suppose to be doing. Teaching, that is.
I will share my years of being in the hair industry as a stylist and an educator in combination with my love of personal development and my experiences in the business. Even though I am talking about hair, this information goes across the board to everybody in the beauty industry. We are creative, work with people and have parallel experiences.
I love learning and am a lifetime student. I'm excited to share my skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm in hopes of inspiring you to create a business and life that you love! I consider myself blessed that I get to be creative everyday as part of my career. The best part of it for me is that I am able to help others feel good inside and out. How lucky are we that we get to do that AND play with hair?! My purpose in doing what I do is to stay inspired and share with you what I know in hopes that it will assist you in becoming the best version of yourself in biz + life. You in?
