What is your biggest accomplishment?

Being able to live both my dreams of having a family and owning a company.  It has always been really easy to let my professional life take over when I first started the business and even now.  The business demands so much of my time that I am thankful I have been able to prioritize my personal life.  Making sure family and my personal life are a priority, a life beyond my business, was actually advice several women who had graduated from Harvard Business School 10 years before me had given me; advice they had wished that someone had shared with them.

Lack of Money Doesn’t Stop This Train

Lack of Money Doesnt Stop This Train

IC is not at the six figure business level just yet, but that doesn’t stop me from building the brand of my dreams. Seriously, I spend 15 to 30 minutes a day envisioning the store’s growth. It’s a really great thing for me to do. I am thankful for every moment that happens in ICB World. I think it’s fun that no two days are alike. The main reason for this post is to let you know that you don’t need thousands, hundreds or even one dollar in your account to live your dreams.  But wait, there’s more!

What’s your biggest accomplishment?
I’m most proud of making the decision to leave a comfortable full-time position in 2009 and move to LA (by myself) to pursue my dream of being a freelance makeup artist. It wasn’t always been smooth sailing, but I never went back to working for somebody else again, and I don’t plan to.
When did you know you wanted to be MUA?

I soon learned that you can be a make-up artist many other ways.

But wait, there’s more!

What’s your biggest accomplishment?

My greatest accomplishment has been realizing what is and is not important in life. That alone  has brought me the greatest rewards a girl could ever ask for! Shout out to JESUS!
