1. Hi Leann! So how did you get into the beauty industry?

Growing up with 3 sisters we were always doing each others hair and makeup at a young age and always had a passion for the industry. After 15 years of working in the corporate world I decided I wanted to be my own boss and started up the spa with my 2 sisters.

2. What advice do you have for those looking to get into the beauty industry?

I would say follow your passion and take massive action. It's one thing to think about it and it's another to take action and make it happen. Stay focused and don't let anyone or anything get in the way of your dream.

3.What struggles did you face when you started pursuing your passion and how did you overcome them?

Not having any prior entrepreneur experience, there were many obstacles that came my way. I made a lot of mistakes with important business decisions that at times I questioned myself If this was what I wanted to continue to pursue. One thing that kept me going was my love and passion for what I did and no matter how many times I failed, I got right back up and kept going. I had a clear vision of what I wanted and focused on it.

4. What do you think it takes to be successful?

To be successful you need to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve and you have to take massive action to get there. You have to stay focus and never give up.

5. What advice would you give women who aren’t really sure how to pursue their dreams?

Constantly learn and grow yourself. Find what it is that you are passionate about and build on your strengths. I can't stretch how important personal growth is. Read as many books as possible and continue to be a student always.
