Thank you Mags!!!
This is my first post on your forum. I have read here for quite a while and I just wanted to share my journey with all of you and tell you how much I appreciate all of your knowledge and what part all of you have had in my career.
I am a small town girl in West Tennessee. I have been licensed for 2 years. I was 28 when I started cosmo school. My PASSION has always been in Color. On the first day, I was asked where do you I yourself in 5 years. I told her, “I dream in COLOR! And, I hope it will take me over the rainbow.”
When I was in school, I knew I was in trouble when I asked questions about color and my instructors had no answers for me. So, I began my search on the internet. I began my search on other forums where I found Mags. Then, followed her here. By the end of school, my senior instructor asked to to teach a mini class on what I had learned. She said that she had been teaching for 15 years and had never had a student understand color the way I did.
I have been booth rent for 2 years and continuing my education by any means possible with an excellent base from what I have learned from you. I have done very well. I know I am still a baby and still have alot to learn, as we all do.
Well, long story short…..
I was interviewed by the business manager and one of the owners. And was told I would hear from them in a couple of days after they had time to have a meeting. They called me back and wanted a second interview. This time it was a one on one with the BIG GUY! After the interview, I was invited to stay for the staff meeting. Then, he asked me to come in next Wednesday for a working interview. They will have clients lined up for me to perform services on. This interview will determine how much I will charge for services and determine my commission scale….I am sweating bullets just thinking about it.
Anyway…He offered my a stylist position!!!!!!!!!!! I am so flattered! But, I still have to go through the working interview next week.
Thank you Mags and all of you for your knowledge and inspiration. I value and respect all of opinions. Do you have any tips for Wednesday?
