Stress: The Road to Illness?

Aug 12, 2020

 

My Heart is Breaking...

My fellow California Estheticians are struggling through this pandemic right now because they have not been able to reopen their businesses. Some are hanging on by a thread and sadly, others have chosen to close their business permanently.

Throughout my 20+ year Esthetics career, I usually have something to say, advice to give, opinions to impart, online courses to offer... anything I can do to help lead Estheticians to and through their financially successful...

Pandemic 2020 (part 2): Same Storm. Different Solution.

Jun 07, 2020

 

This is a follow up to my blog of May 16th on the topic of protecting ourselves against this Covid-19 nightmare.

Estheticians: Surviving and Thriving Pandemic 2020

Jun 06, 2020

 

Wow, what a weird time in history this is...

It’s horrific, it’s scary, and it’s confusing. It’s been a huge priority shift for me, that’s for sure. Although our journeys will be very different, the truth is that we are all in it together. And that brings me to my fellow Estheticians.

I have been a licensed Esthetician in the state of California since 1999, and NCEA Certified since 2008. I’ve seen a lot, I’ve had success, I’ve made...
