With female entrepreneurship on the rise, we’re putting the spotlight on all of the hardworking lash bosses out there. Looking for ways to become a lash entrepreneur instead of just another lash artist in the game? Read on…
Innovate. For starters, you’ll need to get innovative. Entrepreneurs have a business-focused mindset from the start. What is your brand about? Think about your tone, your voice and your style. What sets your apart from the crowd? Lash entrepreneurs think well beyond just lashing.
Plan. Once you’ve developed your brand, work on your plan. How will you scale your business? Work out some goals. Create a budget. Do your math and figure out how many appointments you’ll need to book. Would you consider working with another lash artist? Do you want to lash in a salon or have your own space. Don’t forget to make a 5- year growth plan to give you something to work toward each day.
Learn. Never stop learning. This is true in life, in business, and in lashes. Continuing your education, growing your brand and developing your techniques will help you go from lash artist to lash entrepreneur. Don’t forget to be open to constructive criticism.
Energize. This is a big tip! Energize yourself by pursuing your passion and it won’t feel like work. Practice self-care each day. Make your health a priority. Also, remember that your time is more valuable then money. Lash entrepreneurs know what they are worth.
Support. A true lash entrepreneur leads by example. Support others in your industry! Lift other women up instead of tearing the down. Continue to grow your network and make connections. There’s enough room in the lash world for hardworking entrepreneurs.
