A-LeeViate Mobile Spa Services
I am a Business Management graduate that has been working in the financial industry for 13 years and counting. Prior to finance, I was working in retail as a sales associate and shortly after, acting manager. My passion however, has always been about skin care and make up.
As a teenage and into my early adult life, I would daydream about opening my own salon and becoming my own boss. The only thing stopping me was myself! I guess I was always scared that I would never be good enough to make this dream a reality. I made excuses and told myself that maybe I am too old to pursue this career path, or I am not financially capable to put myself through school again. Essentially, I was too scared to put a plan into fruition.
Fast forward to 2017, after I got married and settled into my home is when I really started to think about my next steps and what would really make me happy.
I thought to myself, there’s never going to be a right time to pursue this. What am I waiting for? What am I scared of? If I don’t do this now, I will regret it for the rest of my life. So…I decided to bite the bullet and enrol into school as a part time student at Body Pro Beauty & Aesthetics Academy.
I didn’t realize how hard it would be to work full time, study, keep my house in check with food on the table and managing to wake up early every Saturday morning to be in school all day. I was missing out on family time, hanging out with my friends etc. I can only imagine how much harder it may be for some woman with kids. I applaud you ladies who do have all that and more on their plates but manage to make it work. Sometimes, you just have to sacrifice now in order to reap the benefits later. That’s what my husband would say every time I felt overwhelmed or FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).
I graduated October 2018 with flying colors, registered my business (A-LeeViate Mobile Spa Services) and currently building it from the ground up slowly but surely. My motto is ensuring my clients feel comfortable, special and A-LeeViated of any worries they may have all while being treated with a level of prestige.
To all my ladies out there trying to figure out if they should pursue their passions… I would like to say its never too late, where there’s a will there’s a way and the time is now!
