How to Get Started in the Lash Business
by Lois Akumeh
When people hear risk they think gamble. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A calculated risk backed by efforts turns your risk into an investment.
Here is My Story & How I Got Started
A few years ago when first started lashing everything seemed impossible. The truth is, I had never taken a lash class besides what was taught in aesthetics school. And honestly I had so many problems: I struggled with lash retention, humidity, lack of tools, etc…..
Guys!!! I was sooo broke!!! My rent was only $200 a month and I could not even afford it. I had to get a second job working in the hospital. I was a single Mother, full-time nursing student with two part-time jobs.⠀So I had to do something….⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I decided to take action.
I was a year into nursing school with four more years to go. I saw the earning potential in lashing and decided to invest in my future. Then I enrolled in my first lash training class in Chicago. At first I was afraid. At that point, I have only resided in the US for maybe 4-5 years and I was terrified to travel let alone by myself. ⠀⠀⠀
Now Here’s the Scary Part…..⠀
At the time, there was so much anxiety as I left my mom and son to take a lash class in a big city like Chicago 😳. To top all of this off, I could not even afford a plane ticket. So I decided to take the train from Lincoln to Chicago and back.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I look back on my experience taking the train to and from Chicago and staying in a hotel for two days alone only after being in the United States for less than five years has been one of the most fearful moments in my lashing career. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Attending the lash class in Chicago taught me exactly what I was doing wrong and how to improve. I was exposed to quality products, innovative techniques and made connections with other artists.
In Conclusion – The Big Payoff
Fast forward to today, I’ve been able to build a six-figure business from taking action in the mist of overwhelming fear. And it all started with that lash class – which we now offer to our own students and help people start their own businesses in lashes, Microblading, Lip blushing, Brows,
or to become a Cosmetologist or Esthetician.
