Best celebrity airbrush tan award goes to: Kim Kardashian & Abigail Ratchford
I chose to be an airbrush tanner because: I love making women feel confident & beautiful! It’s an amazing industry to be in!
If I wasn’t an airbrush tanner I would be: I would want to be in Fashion Marketing
My most embarrassing moment as a business owner: I was doing a tan at a client's house and when we were all finished, I could not get my tent to fold back up! It felt like 20 mins of me sweating, trying to battle my tent. Finally, I just folded it once and shoved it in my car! She was great about it, but those tents have minds of their own!
Favorite social media outlet: Instagram
The one thing I could not live without for my biz: Social Media
The part of owning my own business I am not very good at: Marketing and getting my name out there
The one thing I wish I knew when I started my business: That it wasn’t always going to be easy and not always having a huge flow of clients all year long.
Where I plan to be in five years: I would like a store front, not be just mobile and have more services.
Business owners who inspire me: Kelly Meadows!
Quote I love: Do what makes your soul happy.
When I’m not working, I love to: Spend time with my 3 girls and husband
My favorite thing about owning my own business: Being my own boss and scheduling
The thing I dislike most about owning my own business: Not having enough time because I still work another job as well. But hoping for this to be my only career soon!
If I could share some wisdom with someone just getting started in this biz it would be: Give it time, let it grow and you’ll be where you want to be in this business!
Any parting words?: Being a part of this industry is the best thing I’ve ever been a part of and I can’t wait to grow my business!
