My time with Kandee
A lot has happened since my day with Kandee J and the rest of her fab Glaministas in London. I went along to learn as much as I could from this fab lady that I have watched for the past two years of my life. I had done a lot of research into Glaminars and read various experiences - positive and the odd negative so I did not know what quite to expect.
At the risk of sounding trite I really found the day extraordinary! I learnt how to focus my mind to what I want from life and I am now striving to get it. I have remembered everyday to keep being the pink tree in the street!
I never thought that when i searched for 'wedding make up' for my big day in 2008 that I would now be running my own bridal make up business and aiming from the stars.
The sunday after the Glaminar I had a stand at a local bridal show in Bedford. It was my first one and I was so nervous but with Kandee's words in my mind I went along and secured four weddings and three potentials.
This is me at my stand!
On a more practical note the Glamiar taught me to market myself and my business and reach new markets for my work. I am also aware of contracts and what I have to think about when planning a bridal make up application. I have put these ideas into practice and i am reaping the rewards. So far I have booked jobs three times the value I paid for the Glaminar. Now i am sure that I had a hand in securing the bookings but I am sure without the Glaminar I would not have taken it to the next level.
Thank-you Kandee for coming to London and because of you I will always remember
'You were born unique and don't die a copy'
