Fake It Til You Make It

Hey Honey!
Can I talk to you for a second?
I just want to take a moment to let you know how proud of you I am. You’ve decided to turn your dream into a reality and that is HUGE!!
I know how hard it is to jump out there and do something that others
are telling you not to. I just want to let you know that I believe in you and I
support you.
May I offer you a small piece of advice?
I know that when you are just starting out you have visions of being a “major
corporation” but you feel as if you are a “mom & pop” store.
FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT HONEY!
Come out the gate as if you are already where you want to be. In order
for other people to take you seriously, you have to first take yourself
seriously.
When someone contacts you about your business or service, even if they
are family/friends, be professional.
You
know how loved ones can be. They always want something for the FREE.99
I’m not saying that you have to charge a million dollars, but don’t sell
yourself short either. Your time is valuable.
They won’t treat your business as a business if you aren’t treating your business as a business.
One last piece of advice before I let you go…
Invest in your business!! Get the proper tools needed to do what you
do.
If you are a makeup artist, then invest in some great makeup brushes
and eye shadow palettes.
If you are a hair dresser then get an amazing flat iron, blow dryer,
and curling wand. Whatever tools you need to get the job done.
You may not be able to get everything you need at one time and that’s fine.
Get something this paycheck. Ask for this item for your anniversary. Put this
item on your Christmas wish list. Slow and steady
wins the race!
Take a class or two to help you develop your craft. Stay up to date
with the latest trends and techniques of your industry.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with me and if I can help you in any
way just let me know.

 

Team work makes the dream work.
