Welcome everyone, this is my first official blog post! I want this blog to offer advice, inspiration and motivation to my fellow artists or anyone that comes across this. I’ll be posting everything from product reviews to business tips and how to stay balanced as a freelance artist.
Our business can be a fickle one, having ups and downs and uncertain endings. Our business can also be a glorious one, having freedom and no limit to what we can achieve for our career. It’s important to check in with yourself each week to make sure you are on the right track for YOU. With so much instant gratification from social media, sometimes we loose track of the long term goal. What does that mean to you?
For me, longevity and creating a legacy are my number one goals. I want to learn as much as I can so I can remain relevant and also become a pioneer of sorts for our business. There are a lot of changes happening and I feel that unless someone steps up to the plate and creates that change we all want to see, our world will become stagnant.
It’s only been about 10-15 years or so that extended education has become available to makeup artists, while hair dressing has had this for many years prior. There are very few people offering high quality education out there and I felt it was time to UP the game. Social media started to take our coveted career and put a new spin on it. Buy a palette, show a cut crease and boom you have 1m followers who think you do this for a living, day after day and make money – NO.
Work for 20 years, build a solid book and gain loads of experience & you don’t matter, how did this happen? There are an elite few that get the recognition and well deserved I might say! But for the rest of us, how can we get that experience? We need those who come before us to guide, show and share their knowledge so we can be inspired & motivated. This is where I decided it was time for a change. My goal for 2016 is to get the best of the best artists and educators and bring them to you.
We will be touring around the globe to the most requested cities bringing the best in makeup and hair education.
If you live in a small town you can still learn. If you are a single parent with no help, you can still learn. If you don’t have the finances right now, you can still learn. We will show you how. If you have a passion, that fire in your belly that says – “I don’t know anything else I’d rather do, I will do whatever it takes to learn and grow,” then you will GET IT.
2016 has classes and webinars on the calendar until May but we are booking a few in the summer. There is a MAJOR announcement I’ll be making in mid February-early March for a HUGE event I am producing. This has been 2 years in the making. I had a dream and it’s finally happening, I can’t wait to share it with you.
Starting in January I’ll be giving you tips on how to grow your business so you can be on the right path for YOU. This is the year of giving, you will be the receiver of all things great. It’s YOUR time to climb out of any darkness you may face. Put things into perspective for YOUR business and know you have my support as long as you need it –
With love, E
