Tips to being successful

Just a few points of what it takes to be successful. It is not an easy ride and my saying as everyone knows – If it were easy everyone would do it.

 

Persistence – No matter what you have to do keep knocking at the door, fighting, and spite of how difficult it is. Never give up.

 

Late nights – If you’re an entrepreneur, you will most probably find you hit the pillow and your mind will be buzzing. So you find yourself up working through the night. I find that’s when I work best.

 

Dedication – Being fully committed to your business or goal. Don’t let your mind run off course and keep focus on that end result.

 

Hard Work – Like I said it’s not easy. Social life will take a back seat while your building. Long hours and just generally cannot switch off. But it’s all part of the buzz.

 

Rejections – No matter what business you are in, you will always come across rejection. Whether that’s a client going elsewhere, a buyer not interested in a product or not being able to sign that deal you was so close to. Even trying to get that business finance to start your business. Just keep going – Never let a rejection knock you down as your will have this throughout your career. You will learn how to deal with rejection and become stronger rather than taking it personal.

 

Sacrifices – While your building you need to sacrifice anything that’s going to distract you. That party that’s going to cause you to have a hangover for the next two days – Or maybe a holiday that will pull you out the loop for a week and not the best time. Maybe a group of “friends” that aren’t a positive influence in your life.

 

Criticism – You will get people giving you disapproval on your goals. Judging your business and what “they” would do differently. But constructive criticism is great. Choose what you want to take from people’s criticism and push out the negative.

 

Failure – Even with the most successful entrepreneurs they have failed at something during their journey. 8 out of 10 businesses fail within the first 18 months. Don’t be afraid of failure. Study, learn, hear and change what your business needs before it gets to this point. Failure is not bad; you can change it round to a good.

 

Doubts – Whether to start a business or something new within an existing business. Knowing whether to grow your team or bring in a new product. You will always have doubts. You have to decide what is best for you and business and most of all if your finances can take the change.

 

Risks – Business will always be a risk. Risk of going bankrupt, risk of the business not working, not pulling in the business you need. If you are not a risk taker I wouldn’t even try to start a company.

It’s all about timing

Don’t worry if your not where you wanna be yet. Great things take time.

I’m working with a few people and businesses at the moment who have big visions and dreams. Some are growing their business and others are trying to start a business.

Timing is key! One thing I’m not very good at is waiting. Everyone that knows me knows this. That’s because my life runs at a million times per hour! I don’t like to feel like I’m wasting time….
But it’s not in our timing, it’s in God’s.

Having the time before something big is about to happen is preparation for what is to come. Use this time wisely, research, prep, read, learn!
Keep positive and don’t get down if it’s not happening RIGHT NOW. Because it will happen if you keep working and fighting for it.

One tip to remember, you are the books you read, the movies you watch, the people you spend time with, the conversations you engage with. So choose wisely what you feed your mind with.

Enjoy and be grateful for what you have and are doing right now. It’s all a stepping stone for what’s next to come. Don’t worry if your not where you wanna be yet. Great things take time.

Lots of love and success,

What are your goals for 2018?

#businessgoals
As the new year is just around the corner, have you set your business goals for 2018?
This is the best time to reflex and evaluate how the last 12 months have gone and improve for the coming year.
My favourite saying is have goals, dreams and a vision that’s so big that people call you crazy! Nothing is to big, nothing is impossible and nothing you cannot do. It’s all about your mindset and goal setting.
Even if there is things that didn’t work out right this year, turn them around to a positive. What did you learn from? See the funny side of the negative.
What are your goals for 2018?
They might be something like…
❣️ Taking on your first employee
❣️ Starting your first business
❣️ Increase client loyalty and retention
❣️ Training and development
❣️ Investing in a business mentor
❣️Growing your social media
Nothing is to big or to small. So what are your 2018 goals?

Autumn Lash Cycle

▪️AUTUMN LASH SHED ▪️

 

Lash shred

 

Yes it’s that time of year! Your hair feels crap, your hair on your body might be slightly different, if you have a dog/cat they will be moulting, after all we are all animals and this time of year all our hair SHREDS, and unfortunately this means our beautiful eyelashes.

Why does this happen?

This time of year, the sun is disappearing which means less  vitamin D, which tells our body we don’t need our hair as much anymore, as our hair on our body is there to protect us from the sun! So that is the science behind it.

So your lashes might be falling out quicker, you might have large gaps. It’s not you, it’s not us, it’s not our glue or your lash techs glue. When your extension is falling out with the natural lash like the image above – there is nothing any of us can do.

You might want to bring your appointments slightly forward to they don’t get to gappy. In a month of so this will stop and will go back to normal, so don’t worry!

Lash techs, feel free to share to let your clients know ❤️
