After being forced to booth rent right after beauty school, I clawed my way up the success ladder and taught myself everything there was to know about having success as a nail tech. I worked 18-hour days for the first three years of my career, all while maintaining my home life, husband, three kids and everything that goes with starting a business. Fortunately, I had years of experience running businesses and managing assets for large residential and commercial property management companies. That experience allowed me to apply my knowledge to my new career. Unfortunately, not many people have a management background as I did when I came into the industry. When professionals face a lack of hands-on training, many leave the industry.
