7 Ways to Level Up Your Career in 2022 ✨

7 Ways to Level Up Your Career in 2022 ✨

 

There's something magical about a New Year. It's the perfect time to set new goals and get clear on what you want to see happen in the upcoming months. We have compiled a list of a few things that will help you reach your #CAREERGOALS in 2022. 

 

1. Get Refined 

Take New Courses

Whether you have a specific skill that you'd love to improve on, or you're just curious about other methods and learning new things, taking a course is a surefire way to add value to your work. Investing in your education is always worth it! 

Find a course (or two or three!) that you'd love to take this year - and then make a plan for how and when you're going to make it happen.

2. Get Inspired

Attend Events 

Attending in person events like the LashConference is one of the most powerful ways to draw inspiration for your career. Not only can you make new friends, have fun, and travel - but you also get to hear Top Leaders in the Industry share the things they did to find success. 

Make it a point to attend at least one in-person event this year, even if it's only virtually. We guarantee it will inspire you on next steps you can take to increase your business' bottom line, and reach all of your goals.

3. Get Renowned

Wholesale Products

Starting your own product line can be expensive, tedious, and often soak up a lot of precious time. Some companies will allow you to purchase their product at wholesale pricing and retail it to other lash artists in your area. We have several people who have started doing this with our product line, and they love it! All the local lash artists in their area can come shop in person, and they get to earn money simply by supplying. 

Look into this option for your business, and see if it makes sense for you!

4. Get Involved

Become an Affiliate

If you're wanting to get involved with some of your favorite lash brands, see if they are accepting applications for new Affiliates/Influencers! You can often make a commission off of sharing your favorite products or creating content for the brand. This is another way you can add some extra change in your pocket without any overhead. 

We are currently accepting new Affiliates, so if you'd like to apply, click here or email us at hr@lashbomb.com.

 

5. Get Creative  

Try Something New

Are you sick of feeling like you do the same things all day, every day? Try a new set completely out of your comfort zone. Ask for a model who's willing to let you experiment so you can challenge yourself with something completely new and different - like L Curls, Colored Lashes, or a Strip Lash look! 

You can also shake it up on the business end - offer a new incentive for Referrals, make a New Client Welcome Goodie Bag, change the way your room is set up! Only you know what will be the right thing for your business. 

Write down three things you want to try this year that are completely new to you! 

 

6. Get Focused

Use Magnifying Glasses

If there's one thing that can really improve your accuracy and speed, its Magnifying Glasses. These things are a GAME CHANGER. They really do help you do your best work. Plus, when you have the right magnification, they can alleviate a lot of strain on your neck, shoulders, back, and eyes. They do take a minute to adjust to, but once you are used to wearing them, you'll never go back!

7. Get Skilled

Practice makes Progress

The truth is, perfecting any craft or skill takes time and dedication. The more you lash, the better you'll get! Take every chance you can get to practice, ask for feedback, and learn new things. 

At the end of the day, there's two things that will keep a client coming back to you. Your passion - and your skill. If you can give them their favorite set they have ever had, they will continue to come back to you time and time again. The better your skills are, the more prepared you are to give them the lashes they've always wanted.  So practice, practice, practice every chance that you get!

Here's to a phenomenal 2022 full of success, happiness, and connection.

Stay Fabulous, and Lash On!

Six Tips For Creating A Price List

It can be difficult at first to know how to price your lash services. Fear not! It doesn't have to be! Research the market in your area. Find 3-10 other reputable lash professionals and calculate the average price being charged.

1. Start in the medium/high range - it is easier to lower prices than to raise them.

2. Be competitive! Never undersell yourself.

3. You deserve to make a profit for your skill. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. Remember all the investments you have made to be in this industry.

4. It's okay to offer discounts on full sets when you are first starting out and practicing.

5. Do not give discounts on fills, unless you plan to keep the discounted rate. Clients have a harder time with a large price jump for fills.

6. Stand your ground with doubtful clients! For every client that won't pay your prices, there are three more that will!

Do you have any other pricing tips? We love collaborating with other artists and learning what has worked for them!

XOXO, LB!
