Results vs. Transformation: Why the Journey Matters Most

Welcome to the latest episode, folks! Today, I'm spilling the beans on my wild four-month ride with CrossFit, where I even dared to sign up for a competition. But you know what? This journey has taught me something priceless – it's not about the trophies; it's about the transformation! We'll dig deep into the idea that the real magic happens when we step out of our comfort zones. In life and business, we often get caught up in chasing external achievements, forgetting that the true gold lies in becoming the best versions of ourselves. Comfort zones? Well, they're cozy, but they won't make you grow. The real growth happens when you venture out, even if it feels daunting, because that's where the real treasure lies. Remember, wherever you go, you take yourself with you! So, let's stop fixating on the results we desperately crave. Instead, let's celebrate the journey, even when it gets tough. The results? They'll naturally follow, but you won't be so hung up on the

BEST OF - The Money Mindset Episode You Have to Hear

I wanted to do a deep dive on money mindset and how the most toxic phrase thrown around in our industry is useless to help you grow your business and adjust prices. “Charge Your Worth” 🤮 What does that even mean?

Beyond the Lashes: Retirement Planning For Beauty Industry Veterans

If you’re like most beauty business owners - once you’ve reached a comfortable level of success in your business where you are fully booked and making the income you desire to make - you start to wonder… What’s next? Will I continue trucking along doing this same thing for the next 10 or 20 years? What does retirement even LOOK LIKE for a lash artist?? Is building a team the logical next step? If not, then WHAT? That’s exactly what we’re talking about on today’s episode. My guest today is Natalie, a lash artist from the UK with 7 years of experience in the industry. She works from home and loves her clients, but also knows she doesn’t want to be taking appointments forever. She reached out to me because she was feeling stuck in what the next step was in her business that would allow her to stop taking clients while still bringing in income and setting herself up for retirement.

Simplifying Your Way to Success: Why One Income Stream is Better Than Many

Are you thinking about creating a source of “passive income” - a.k.a income that doesn't require constant effort - in your beauty business? It may seem like offering more products, services, or becoming an educator can allow you to quickly and easily bring in the big bucks, but have you considered the time, money, and resources needed to produce that revenue? Investing money and time to research products, creating an e-commerce store, marketing the products and giving away products to get people to try it, etc - all happens before you've ever made a sale. Becoming an educator means establishing credibility as an educator, building an audience of people who trust you, creating your curriculum, then having sales convos to get a student to buy from you. THEN you actually can do the education part of teaching a student. Not to mention a whole hell of a lot of MARKETING to consistently get new students into your program.  <

As business owners, we often face challenges that our family and friends don’t get. It’s like trying to explain quantum physics to a rock. They’re not even really sure what it is you DO for a living… And trying to vent to your team about these challenges? Let’s just say, that’s like trying to put out a fire with gasoline.

Have you ever had a potential new client reach out to you asking for your prices, and after you tell them, you hear…crickets? They ghost you and you never hear from them again!! When you give your price point right off the bat - you give the potential customer no other buying factors to make an informed choice on - just price point. And y’all know there’s some chop shop down the street who charges way less than you.

Why I Can’t Stand Commission-Based Pay For Your Team

Every time I speak on this topic, it ruffles some feathers… Because hiring employees and offering commission-based pay is the “norm” in our industry - and it really SHOULDN’T BE (in my opinion). So I will continue to shout from the rooftops that commission-based pay is bad for beauty businesses AND their team members because the way MOST businesses in our industry structure their pay doesn’t provide consistency and stability for the team member NOR the business trying to build that team member a clientele. And I mean ANY commission based business model - not just the 50% commission model which, by this point, I hope you’ve seen the light of how unprofitable that pay rate is!  I want to release the BS (belief system) that just because everybody else is paying commission - that you should too! Because it’s a broken pay system in our industry in MOST (not all) businesses.  Commission sounds great for your team members when they are FULLY BOO

You Are NOT a Victim to Where Your Time is Spent!

You are NOT a victim to where your time is spent! As an employee - sure, it can be argued that if you work more, you make more - likely when you're paid hourly and get overtime when you work past your standard hours of work. This thinking as a CEO is WHY your business is not growing, why you're stressed and overworked or overwhelmed or just flat out OVER IT! You are the Master Chess Player of your business and it's your role to strategically manage the resources of the business (i.e. time, money, energy, etc).

Ah, I love data. I really do!

Do you want to add on a team member? How much should you pay them? What are the costs associated? All Of That Is Data.

I know this is going to sound really cliche - but failure is not an option. I don't want you to even give yourself failure as an option. “Failure” is typically a meaning that you give to an unknown set of circumstances where you would walk away from your business… But starting today, I want you to redefine what failure means to you. I love these conversations that we have in the DMS!  So if you're not already following me on Instagram, please do so at and then send me a DM with what's going on in your business.   Episode Highlights <span style="font-weight:

Why “Appointment Available” Posts Indicate a Growth Problem

I ruffled some feathers and created a JUICY debate in a recent Instagram post! The post was in response to a question I was asked about "How do I advertise that I have appointments available without looking desperate?". My answer - you don't. And I explained why you don't and what to focus on instead, which was super valuable for the 90% of my audience who is not fully booked. If you haven’t listened to that episode yet - go check out episode 189 HERE. The followers who loudly disagreed (and respectfully I might add cause this community is amazing!!) guess what? They are not the 90% of my audience who are struggling to build a clientele. The overwhelming majority of "I disagree and this totally works for me, so you're wrong" types of comments on this post were from those artists who are pretty much fully booked to which the original post a

“How Do I Avoid Looking Desperate to Fill Appointments?”

Today, we're going to be answering a question I got on Instagram which is:  “How do I advertise that I have appointments available? Without looking desperate to fill them?”  There’s really two parts to this question…the first part is “how do you advertise available appointments” and the second part is “How to not look desperate”.

How Do You Single-Handedly Run a Business?

Today I’m answering this question I received in an Instagram DM:  “How do you single-handedly run a business? There is no time to grab a sip of water, let alone get up and give each client the proper hello and see you later I would desire. Or getting back to potential and current clients during the day. I feel like my entire focus goes into when I'm in the chair, and there's no time for anything else.” You are not a victim of your time… You are the CEO, the business owner, the boss - and the ONLY person who is in control of your schedule. If you don’t give yourself the time to rest, stretch your hands, go to the bathroom, or have a sip of water - that's on you boo, your name is on the door!  Ain't nobody coming to save you.

Why you don’t have to be on social media

I recently had a conversation with one of my mastermind members who has so much DEMAND for her and her team that she needs to hire several more team members to keep up with the demand. We were discussing her goals and she said a big focus of her’s was “I need to start making reels for the business” and I asked why. Her answer:  “Because I need to market the business.”  She ALREADY has more demand than she can handle for her AND her team. But it’s not wise to ever stop marketing your business, right? Her goal of learning how to be better at marketing is great - but from my perspective it’s not the best use of her time and energy right now, why? Because she has marketing that is ALREADY killing it for her! And she hasn’t posted one re

Lately we’ve had several members inside The Lashpreneur Society asking about this topic and I thought - if I'm seeing this come up with this level of frequency with our members - chances are, a good percentage of you are thinking the same thing.  And that is about a recession.

Mental Health and Business Ownership - It’s OK to Not Be OK (Part 2)

In Part 2 of this two-part episode, I continue my conversation with Cheryl of Untamed Artistry on mental health issues and what that looks like in business ownership. Today we’re talking about what it means when you reach a goal that, by society’s definition, makes you successful (like earning six figures in revenue) - but it doesn’t bring you the feeling of joy or happiness that you thought it would.  We also discuss how learning to love yourself will make you a better CEO, finding the balance between anxiety and depression, and the reason why using the work and hustle of entrepreneurship is not a healthy escape.

Mental Health and Business Ownership - It’s OK to Not Be OK (Part 1)

It is often too easy to look at business owners or influencers in our industry - especially those that have a platform and a lot of followers - and think they’ve got it all “figured out”. Like they’re just living the highlife. I want to assure you that this is NOT always the case - in fact it rarely, if EVER is.  I’ve gone through the experience of having my mental health tank, as I’m sure many of you listening have. I still go through big ups and downs, they’re just not as scary for me anymore because I gave myself permission to do what was scary back when I shut down my business and walked away for 4 months - unsure if I’d ever go back to it.

My Secret Weapon For A Better Customer Experience

I recently attended an event for one of my biz buddies, Britt Seva - a stellar business coach for hairstylists, called Thrivers Live. One thing that really resonated with me that one of the speakers spoke about was having EMPATHY in how you handle the clients in your business.  When a client gets unhappy - It’s usually caused by two factors - either they don't like the results, OR they didn’t  like the experience. Depending on their comfort level of communicating with the business on their undesired results or experience will determine how they feel they can be heard. Sometimes that means contacting you and giving you the opportunity to fix the error and sometimes that means putting you on blast online by way of a bad review and telling anyone who will listen about their results/experience. It’s totally normal when we feel like somebody's upset with us or we fe

Would you like to increase your income without taking on more clients? On today’s episode, I’m sharing a tip that will show you how!  I have ONLY shared this tip with my mastermind students who are building out salon teams - until now! This is a great financial exercise for you to do to see which service brings you in the most money for your time! To keep it simple and clear - this is not evaluating the profitability of your business - just the amount of SALES PER MINUTE. Doing this simple evaluation can help you to see if you've priced your services reasonably or if there are some major red flags to how you've structured your pricing! Once you know which service brings in the most money, you just do MORE of that service-which will allow you to increase your income without having to take on more clients!

1099s vs W-2 Employees - How to Set Up Your Business for PREDICTABLE and LEGAL Growth + Stability with Momentum Mastermind Member Tiffany Federico

On today’s episode, I spoke with Momentum Mastermind Member Tiffany Federico, of Bright Eyes Beauty Bar. Prior to the pandemic, Tiffany got pregnant, and found herself in need of hiring an employee to cover for her FAST.  She quickly realized that it wouldn’t be as simple as she thought-there are a lot of legalities and responsibilities that come with building out a team. Now I’m not unrealistic - I know that it is COMMON in our industry to hire women as 1099 Independent Contractors - throw 50% commission at them and think you’re creating a win-win situation for both you, the team member and the business… and that is how A LOT of salon owners choose to build out their teams without actually looking at whether or not that pay structure is LEGAL or PROFITABLE.

Nightmare Employees and Sky High Salon Rent - How Lauren Overcame a Business Owner’s Worst Nightmare with the Momentum Mastermind Program

On today’s episode Lauren talks about her experience with her first employee who-within a couple weeks-was already stealing lashes and taking clients at home behind her back!  Lauren says, “So I would say every time I listened to any  free content out there on building a team-I was making EVERY SINGLE MISTAKE that someone who had gone through it before me was making and so I was like, I need to get help. I really need help.” Lauren was under a lot of pressure because when she first started, the whole goal was to start to pay herself more because she has $3,000 a month in rent, which is insanely high for a solo artist. So already, even if she was fully booked and doing $6,000, or $7,000 a month in sales, most of that was going to be to rent. So she made the investment into this program with the anticipation

Victoria started lashing about six years ago and always knew she wanted to grow, to have a team of ladies who had the same vision as her. She was always really good at her craft, but not necessarily the business- so she needed help. One thing that she knew she wanted to do was learn from somebody else's mistakes and gain insight into their processes. That way, she didn't have to waste her own time or go through the same mistakes as others. “For me, I'm a very black and white person when it comes to business. And a lot of ti

Once her business was able to re-open, her employee- who was on a commission based salary- was asking for a raise.

Lash Biz FAQ - Should you offer a membership/subscription for your services?

Recently a long time student of mine asked "I want to offer a monthly subscription for my clients so I get paid on the 1st of the month. I'm thinking of including 2 services in their payment, with perks of getting first dibs on appointments - and offering the services at a discounted rate. This would help my clients save money and help me manage my time and money AND create a secure income. I think this would give me more consistency in my business - what do you think?" As someone who has run a membership business model for the last 5 years with The Lashpreneur Society - I would consider myself an expert in membership or subscription based business models.

Recently I created a Reel based on 4 factors to see if I could get it to outperform any other reel I did - and it worked! So in today's episode I'm going to share that formula with you for you to create your own reels that can increase reach and engagement with your audience. First - my perspective on REELS and social media in general. If you think I enjoy or crave or am super motivated to shake my tail feathers in public to 30,000+ potential people... HA you have me pegged wrong friends. Look I have insecurities just like you - I just don’t focus on ME in my marketing cause my marketing - is about you. I want to help you - and in order to do that - I gotta not make it about me. That may be where you are holding yourself back in marketing your business full out - because you’re more concerned about how you look, sound, act, behave and who might be judging you than  you are about how your

THIS is How to Create a Goal Worth Working Towards!

On today’s episode, I share the thoughts, beliefs and actions that get in the way of most business owners when it comes to goal planning.  Goal planning and resolutions are usually junk. People rarely achieve what they set out to do because they set themselves up for failure. It’s not the big dreams and goals aren’t possible for them - it’s usually a few key steps to achieving those goals that they’ve skipped over. The missteps in goal planning that I see Lashpreneurs making regularly are: 1 - They don’t allow themselves to dream big enough and they let their current circumstances decide what’s possible for them to achieve. 2 - They’re not specific about their goals. They say things like “I want a successful business” or “I want to feel confident about my business” or “I want to be fully book

How I Show Up On Social Media - Even When I’m Feeling Insecure

On today’s episode, I’m sharing an Instagram live chat I did a couple months back based on a conversation I had with a potential coaching client where she made the statement “I don’t think I could do what you do when it comes to being on video.” And ya know - I wonder… how many of you are thinking this same thing? Like specifically - those of you who listen to the podcast - I mean we’re hanging out every single week, so you know me pretty darn well. Cause ya know - those Instagrammers - they only get, like a minute of me at any given point… but you… you spend 20-30 minutes a week with me… so we’ve got a pretty decent situation-ship going on here on the podcast - and so I wanna know - do you have thoughts like that?

How to Hire a Social Media Manager with KNS Studios' Kileigh Scott

Love it, like it or absolutely despise it - it’s hard to ignore the power that social media has to grow your business! I find that the primary reason most Lashpreneurs hate social media is two fold: 1). They don’t know how to utilize the platform to get clients - thus they spend a lot of time creating content that never gets seen, engaged with and ultimately never drives any new clients into their business so it feels like a waste of time and energy  2). They blur the line of using social media for personal and business use so there is a lot of heaviness and toxicity a business owner is exposed to when there’s not a clear distinction between being on social for personal reasons vs being on social media for marketing and business growth reasons.
