Graduation May 2018 it’s now July and what am I up to? Have I done what I set out to do? It’s time to take the state boards and I’m super nervous. With anything, nothing is guaranteed. You get what you put in.
As you all know I landed a job weeks after graduation performing services of hair removal, and this led me to leave my 4 year salary paying job due to the fact it was what I went to school for and it was what I wanted to do. We all know the grass isn’t always greener on the other side and when you want something so bad it doesn’t mean you’re meant to have it.
Needless to say I no longer work at that company. It’s really not in me to work for anyone especially when I don’t feel like I am wanted or that I am being provided good feedback along with criticism for my progress. Yes I enjoyed performing waxing services, no I did not like the sales part of the job especially when the commission wasn’t worth it even though it was hourly pay. When you’re doing something you can’t do it for the money but we have bills to pay and investments to make. I partied ways just before being there a full 30 days and guess what, I’m not ashamed nor am I regretful. Listen when you get to a certain point in your life you have a low tolerance for being unhappy. There was no way I was going to drive 11 miles back and fourth to an establishment I did not like. The only other way I was even able to quit and not look back was because I have a savings account. Let’s not be too careless now.
For me this is the selfish year, accomplish all goals by any means year, invest in myself year. While I have this idle time I have been promoting my makeup, Waxing, facials, and eyelash extension services which you can book if you’re in the Pittsburgh area.
This reminds of back in 2013 when I first started blogging and it was all I wanted to do and eventually get paid for it. Well it’s 5 years later and I’ve rebranded and my Youtube Channel has over 100 subscribers. Never in a million years did I even think I would be doing anything in the beauty industry and here I am.
My advice to anyone do not seek approval from anyone. Do not become discouraged when family or friends do not support you. Keep going. Now I wouldn’t recommend up and quitting your job without a plan but do not stay anywhere that causes you to be unhappy, miserable to the point it affects your performance at your workplace. Your 9-5 supports your goals. If you devote 8 hours to a company make sure you spend at least 1 hour on your goals.
