Advanced Education is the spice required to be in a long term relationship with your career.
Is there anything more depressing than waking up one morning and realizing that you're not in love anymore? It can make you feel hopeless or trapped. That's exactly what happened to me. It was a few years ago that I found myself researching other professions and looking for a way out. I had been a hair stylist for 6 or 7 years at that point and I felt like I was reliving the same monotonous day every day.
So what changed? I started investing in advanced education. Specifically, I knew I liked doing balayage more than any other service. I began tracking down artists who inspired me and flying all over to take their classes. It completely changed my life. I felt passion again for the first time in a long time. I gravitated toward hair painting and balayage techniques because they made me feel connected to artistry. I felt like I was actually creating art versus repetitive foiling techniques that put me into a creative coma.
Over the years my career has evolved in many ways and I've gone from being the go to girl for short haircuts and men's haircuts to the "balayage specialist". It took me nearly 10 years to realize that I am a painter, not a sculptor. This realization inspired me to begin culling my business and hand choosing my clients. In this generation we are fortunate enough to have social media platforms like Instagram that can really throw fuel on the fire for us and aid us in acquiring the business that we truly want.
My mission now is to bring my enthusiasm and knowledge to anyone who seeks it. Advanced education is like date night in racy red lingerie. Spice up your relationship with your career.
