Happy Blog Anniversary to me!
As you may know from my post last month, I have recently began working as a booth renter in a new salon. There have been a few bumps in the road so far, but nothing more than expected and I’m still very much enjoying most aspects of it! However, earlier this week I had a realization. I discovered that I am still not driving my dream in the right direction and that is what has been keeping me feeling in limbo. I understand in any business there will be times of uncertainty when starting your career or making a huge change to something new. Specifically for me in the beauty industry, I feel the need to be free… That’s the best way I can explain it.
By free I mean working for myself completely. I am most comfortable being in control of my own destiny, my own success, and my own failures. The “booth renter” aspect is almost as close as you can get to being free in this way. However, after working this way in two different salons, I know there will always be someone able to throw a curve ball (that’s a nice way of describing it), and alter the way I do my own business. I realized there is another option out there… After much thought, I decided to take the plunge and create my own business entirely! I will be doing two things I love: creating fabulous nails and traveling! I am extending my Polished by Amy brand into a traveling “on location” nail business!
This has always been something I’ve dreamed to do because of the convienience for myself and clients! This also allows me to work on dream locations such as fashion shows and photoshoots in the future. As for now, I am beginning the journey of starting up my business locally. I am taking care of all paperwork this week to make it official! I also know there will be plenty of doubt and skepticism from others, but that’s never stopped me before! I am always true to myself and follow my gut. That’s one thing I can always preach with much certainty that you should always go after your dreams, big or small, no matter what’s standing in between. The time will pass anyway…so start today! :)
Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by and read! I love getting to update you all and getting your feedback and stories from your own experiences. If you had a similar situation, or one just about going after a dream, I’d LOVE to hear it! Have an amazing day beauties! :)
