I do enjoy being able to make my own schedule. I do enjoy the work that I do. I love that I’ve been able to transition my passion for beauty and helping people into a thriving business. There are of course downsides. When you have a lot of employees there are A LOT of different personalities to deal with, that can be difficult. But I am blessed with a great staff who loves me and the brand and I honestly couldn’t do it without them. To overcome those drawbacks — long days being tired and crabby — I try to take some me time. I need to work on that more. I love taking a quick flight to Sedona and getting zen, or OC by the water is always good for me. Or I just cry it out. LOL!
