I was thinking too small. Before I started B-School, I was always doing makeup for weddings as a side gig. Many months would go by before my next gig would come along, and the money just wasn’t flowing. I knew that I was good, but never had the courage to really build it into something.
After my first year of B-School, I amped up my services. I became a certified-licensed microblading artist and opened up TWO brick-and-mortar locations. Now I have clients every week and my business is just starting. I am now making 400% more money (consistently!) than I was making when I first started B-School. I never thought I could be in a position to hire people before starting B-School, and now here I am with a business that has grown into something amazing!
But the biggest takeaway I learned was that you can’t let fear get in your way. I had been playing “small” with my business for too long, and when I finally made the jump to join B-School and get past my fears, my investment paid itself off in ways I couldn’t even imagine.
