I have such a variety of background work experience that I often wonder how I settled on my current career. But I realize that each subsequent position built upon the previous, and I have experienced growth personally and professionally.
If I could have any job and instantly have the training and qualifications to do it, I would keep my current career as a cosmetologist and beauty consultant. I sometimes wish I didn’t go through so much to get to this point, but without it all I would have never developed the people skills necessary to be successful. I still feel I’m growing I that area.
What I feel is so rewarding when someone has had a bad day and my work helps them feel better when they leave my chair. My desire is to improve the lives of others. While some consider the beauty industry to be vain, I find it to be one of inner beauty. Self-esteem, confidence and positivity are all improved when I complete a service on any client, whether male or female.
Regardless of my background experience and how skilled I was, I love what I do and look forward to influencing at least one person in a positive way each day. It’s God’s way of working through me, and that is a privilege I am thankful for.
What would you do if you could instantly have the education and training to get started?
