This past year has been filled with opportunities that have propelled Adrienne into many different facets of her business. She has put tremendous effort into building not only her clientele, but also her technique. It’s all finally paying off, in a big way!
Adrienne is proud to say that she has been a part of the Young Nails Educator Prep Program. The North Carolina program is led by Cindy Sorrells. She has been not only instrumental in teaching Adrienne new and exciting technical skills, but also very encouraging to her in this new venture.
Becoming an educator for the products you love is such a great way to lengthen your career in this industry. Combining a little traveling, which Adrienne loves, with time in the salon weekly, will give her great variety. Plus, when she’s networking about her business and what she does, think of how amazing it sounds to future clients that she teaches for the company. It’s especially impressive when you consider there are so many salons and technicians to choose from.
Having spent the past few months practicing new skills, attending and assisting classes, and one-on-one mentoring, she’s well on her way. Adrienne has even turned strangers that were once practice models into loyal clients! All of this is to prepare her for her certification process to begin this August in California at the Young Nails headquarters. Once certified, Adrienne will be able to teach all around the state through Young Nails and the Board of Cosmetic Arts.
So many of us get into this business for how trendy, fun, exciting, and flexible it is. Then so many of us get stuck in the daily rut of the usual daily routine. Becoming an educator for a product you’re passionate about is something most of us never consider. Most programs have little or no cost involved, and big payoffs.
Your knowledge and skills improve drastically. You become more focused. You meet many new people who you now have as a sounding board for tips and methods. The opportunities are endless and travel can be a little or you could work for a company that has you jet-setting across the country! And when it’s time to say goodbye to working behind the chair, you now have a career path you can still love.
If you’re looking to expand in this area, contact those companies whose products you can’t live without and begin your journey too!
