As I applied her makeup, tears started to roll down her eyes. “I know exactly what I want, I dream about starting a fashion brand every day, but I just don’t know when and how to start, she said. I am afraid to fail and I don’t want my friends and family to say I told you so.”
Sensing her pain, I encouraged her to have faith and believe that if she had enough passion and determination, she could achieve her dream. She vowed she would one day.
See, I too was in her shoes only a few years ago. I was working a 9-to-5 job I didn’t love and every day that I stepped through those cold glass doors of the office building, I felt disappointed because I knew I was meant for something different, something greater.
Maybe you’ve been there? Have you ever felt like you had a calling but were fearful to get started? I encourage you to start now. You’re more capable and powerful beyond your wildest dreams. Eventually, over the years of creating bold looks for this customer, she told me one day, “I did it, I quit my 9-to-5, I’ve purchased my materials to create my fall collection. Those regular makeup sessions turned into empowering sessions… that is when I truly saw the power of makeup. I thought to myself, if one session of makeup could give them that extra bit of confidence they needed to pursue their God-given talent, could I create a makeup brand, a community for women to not only create bold looks but bold lives?
