New WEBINAR! 3 Ways to Get Your Beauty Business on the MAP

I’m beyond excited to host my first Get on the Beauty MAP webinar

So many times, I’ve met aspiring makeup artist with a desire to work in the beauty business but don't know where to start. 

Many makeup artist have kits swelling with the newest products, yet they don't have any clients.

Or makeup artist can’t figure out how to transform their passion for makeup into a real icome?

Are you investing in advanced beauty classes (i.e. eyelash extensions, microblading, airbrush makeup) but don't know how to sell your new services to your existing clients?

Are you scared to start your makeup business because you live in a smaller city and think you don't have the same opportunites as artist living in major markets?

So many makeup artist want a successful business but experience these ROADBLOCKS time and time again. 

Now, with nearly 10 years as a professional makeup artist, beauty expert, and most recently, a two-time author, I have forged some of the most meaningful relationships with clients and companies who value impeccable work ethic, integrity, and a consistent message. Starting out as a retail makeup artist for cosmetics giants such as MAC, Stila, Dior and Giorgio Armani cosmetics helped me refine my brand and build a loyal clientele. 

I've learned that it's not always the best artist that books GREAT jobs but the artist who is on the MAP. 

I want to assure you that there's a way to do what you love, build a loyal clientele and make a profit doing it! 

That's why I am offering this webinar as an opportunity for you to truly understand how to get your business on the MAP. I want to provide the tools to help you START or ENHANCE your current makeup business. Please join me at my upcoming webinar, Get on the Beauty MAP where I'll share:

  • 3 Real Ways to Diversify Your Beauty Business

  • The Tools & Strategies to Maximize, Attract and Profit as a Makeup Artist, Including: 

  • How to Increase Your Visibility & Gain New Loyal Clients

  • How to Convert Views and Clicks into Sales

  • How to Sell Your Beauty Services without Selling 

It has been so amazing working with the talented artists who are already a part of the Makeup Masters Program… But I am looking to do more!  I know that the results that I have helped my clients create have been BIG because I want to see my clients win! 

It means the world to me to see my fellow artists start to create the life and career of their dreams on their own terms.  I also know that I get results for people because I work best with a small, select group. 

That being said, this will be an intimate event for the first few that sign up. Click here to REGISTER! 

I’m not looking to just work with anyone, my team and I are looking for those who are serious about taking their career to the next level. 

If this post speaks to you, then I encourage you to register for the event now. If you know of someone who is looking to grow their business feel free to tag them on this post too!

Thanks so much and I’m looking forward to sharing all of this and so much more with you... Looking forward to seeing you!

This event will be held online via Google Hangouts. A direct (private) link will be sent 24 hours before the webinar. Please have access to a smartphone or laptop.
