What does your MomBoss business do for people?
TOTALLY PAINLESS (okay…ALMOST) hair removal via waxing and sugaring. Our mission is to provide high-quality service over speed equals topnotch results and a newfound waxing addiction. Our pricing is straightforward, and we have a no-tipping policy, so there’s no awkward “umm…how much do you tip your waxer” at check out! Plus…hair removal is ALL we do. Specialization is key, after all… “a jack of all trades is a master of none.”
Why did you start this business? What motivates and drives you through the grind?
I started this business because when I first began in the industry, I found that an education in esthetics was stereotyped as women (and men) that couldn’t go to traditional college. This couldn’t be further from the truth, of course. Myself AND every person I employ chose this career path by choice, not simply loves the beauty industry, meeting and talking to really cool people from all walks of life and of course… we’re all passionate about the instant gratification in getting rid of unwanted hair and sending clients out the door super happy!
I also found that many employers in my field expected long hours and giving up every weekend… and at little pay. (Offensive, right?!) I wanted to provide a place where the best of the best estheticians would feel valued for their contributions, educated on the latest trends/products and enjoy a lucrative, long-term career. All WITHOUT the expectation that work comes before the more important priorities in their life.”
If you were a super hero, what would your super power be and why?
Since time feels limited and my to-do list is never ending, my super power would be that I could not only function, but thrive without sleep. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE catching some zzz’s but if I could squeeze more things into each day, I could be so productive!
What song do you crank up when you need a boost or are celebrating a business victory?
Happy music — anything upbeat with good vibes that I can loudly sing off-key along with (…as long as nobody is within earshot… lol)
What’s the best book you’ve read this year?
No Try Only Do by Andy Bailey. (Truth: I’m only about 70% into it, but it’s great so far!)
We love to play business match maker. What area of your business could you use help with or person that our network can connect you to directly?
Ways to keep costs down and profitability up. (I’m always curious what other companies operational costs are and what percentage it is of their gross revenue. I’d like to think I’m doing this right but I don’t have a baseline!)
What’s your favorite social media network for business and why?
Facebook is the ‘easiest’ because I’ve been on it the longest, so I suppose that’s just based on my own familiarity.
If anything were possible, where do you see your company 1 year from now?
I’d love to see some of the estheticians I employ open up their own PLW location somewhere in the DFW area (or beyond)! Expanding is always so exciting!
Ok, keeping it fun, what hidden talent do you have that people would be surprised to learn?
I’m actually gotten pretty good at drawing pigs, sheep and school buses, per my toddler’s request every. single. day. (I was surprised myself, lol!)
Anything else you would like us to know about your business?
Our most popular service these days is our brow wax and tint combo.
