Today we’d like to introduce you to Natalie Clark.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
After being a stay at home wife and mom, unfortunate circumstances left me no other option then to raise my two little girls on my own. Feeling absolutely hopeless, I reached out to family and friends for advice. My sister-in-law gave me the idea to get certified in eyelash extensions. I took the class and got my certification. I found a job working for commission and soon fell in love with the art of eyelash extensions. After 9 months at that salon, I felt like it was time to find another salon where I could really grow. I found a job ad for AZ Lash Lady on craigslist. I sent the owner my resume and portfolio and set up an interview. I started work at AZ Lash Lady and the owner reminded me that they were only trying me out. They were very strict and had high standards. The owner encouraged me to take classes and helped groom me for success. I even entered into a Fantasy Lash Art competition and placed 3rd in my category. After a year of working for AZ Lash Lady I was given the opportunity to buy the salon. In April of 2017 the owner and I met with an attorney to transfer the business into my name. I am now the owner of AZ Lash Lady. This is only the beginning of my story, there’s much more to come.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth ride. I’ve experienced many setbacks along the way. Struggles related to my work that include building a solid clientele, speed in lashing, retention, the inevitable unhappy client, having to learn a whole new technique (Russian volume).
