Solution(s) I Love: Norvell!!!

Tools of the Trade: Norvell Z3000 & Arena

What I Wear:: Venetian or Venetian Plus

I chose to be an airbrush tanner because: I love the instant gratification and confidence boost I can help my guests achieve!

If I wasn’t an airbrush tanner I would be: A hairstylist!!

Favorite social media outlet: Facebook

The one thing I could not live without for my biz: Prep Mitts!!

The part of owning my own business I am not very good at: Delegating

The one thing I wish I knew when I started my business: How much being diligent pays off!

Where I plan to be in five years: Double or triple my space, with other techs spraying while I am traveling & inspiring others in the sunless industry!

Business owners who inspire me: : I know A LOT of business people-a couple that inspire me: my husband & Kelly Callaghan.

Quote I love: If nothing changes, nothing changes.

When I’m not working, I love to: I'm always working! But I love to cheer my kiddos on at their events, love to cook, shop and lift weights!

My favorite thing about owning my own business: I feel like I'm showing my community and those around me that if you want to do something, DO IT! You're the only one holding you back!

The thing I dislike most about owning my own business:  Feeling like I never have "enough time".

If I could share some wisdom with someone just getting started in this biz it would be: Be prepared to work-but also be prepared to fall in love-with what you do, your people and the people that have your back!

Any parting words?: Don't ever worry about what the next person is or isn't doing. If you have time for that, you're not working hard enough on what YOU are doing!
