Take Pride on how you present yourself. When you give your first impression it is very important. Set a example in your surroundings. Only you are responsible of how you want to be visually perceived. Pressed shirts, Blouses, Trousers, Shined Shoes, Hair, Trimmed or Polished Nails, Tattoos, Jewelry are all areas people or your clients will perceive you. Customers will measure you initially by your outward presentation. Remember our profession is a art and craft. You need to express your own individualism.
Certain age groups you will attract by your appearance and also your age too.
When you do not use your talents where you are employed, or as a salon owner, or studio artist. You need to find a area where you can. You cannot spend hard earned money on schooling or advanced education. To come back to a atmosphere where you cannot utilize your skills. It is your responsibility to find your niche.
Your journey in life is very personnel and important. Do not let the others influence you. Fly straight and on your OWN course. There will be changes, but without these changes there will be no fun in the adventure.
If you feel professionally you are weak at some points, take charge of your weaknesses. Always try to strive for perfection in what you are doing. Practice is the key. Also practice will give you all the answers. Take control of your fears. It is only you holding your back.
