IT'S TIME TO HUSTLE!!
Hello Beauties! This one goes out to all those who are nose to the grindstone and are going cross eyed from all the lashes you are doing. This is for those who haven’t seen their significant other for ages, who feel like the laundry is piling up, and who feel like you could just replace your fingers with tweezers because you will never do anything else.
I have been there, I am currently there and keeping eyes on the prize can be SO hard at this stage. Know that all successful people have been where you are, the work grind is tiring, exhausting and also financially rewarding. I wanted to comprise a list of what the hustle will reward you so that you can keep your biggest goals in mind!
Raising prices to work less: Yes, this is the actual goal. Once you have a waitlist list, you can raise your prices. Once you take another training, you can raise your prices. One day instead of working 5-6 days a week 9-6, you could be doing 3-4 days with 2-3 clients a day and be making the same amount! Remember to always have goals to increase your prices, a 6 month marker, a future training date, or just because you damn well please
Exploring other opportunities: Guys you don’t have to lash forever believe it or not you won’t be able to. Well maybe you can...but I know I can’t. However once you aren’t lashing 24/7, start to explore ways to make your money grow for you. Examples are: invest in a salon and have employees booth rent or do commision, invest in product development, dropship lash accessories, work behind the scenes of a successful lash company as an educator or in brand development...see how the possibilities are endless? Get yourself financially secure with this grind time; then invest your money and watch it grow for you!
Dream a little bigger: With harder work come bigger goals! My friends, dream big! You want to own that kind of house, work for it! You want to go on trips 5+ time a year, GO FOR IT! Remember to print out pictures of money goals, dream vacation spots, and worth will experiences everywhere so you can remember why you are working your ASS OFF.
Guys you are the real MVP. I hope this list has inspired you to think outside the grind box. You are amazing, this time isn’t easy, and you are being smarter than most people around you by investing the time now so that you can reap the rewards later. Keep going, reach out to those around especially in the lash community) for support, and remember that you are hustling now so that you don’t have to work that 9-5 for the rest of your life.
IF YOU ARE LIKE ME, I DARE YOU TO TAKE 2-3 HOURS OF YOUR TIME. BLOCK IT OUT IF YOU NEED TO ON ALL YOUR CALENDERS. TURN YOUR PHONE OFF. DO SOMETHING THAT ISN'T WORK RELATED. WRITE A POEM, PAINT, GO FOR A WALK, GO FOR A DRIVE, GO SHOPPING. ANYTHING WILL WORK. JUST TAKE SOME YOU TIME.
