Yet they live in an illusion that says, I want to have more and earn more but I don’t have to do anymore and I don’t have to have any consideration for anyone else. What I am discovering is that this destructive mindset is very wide spread in the beauty industry. In my life experiences, you must invest time, money or talent to in-turn be rewarded; whether the reward is in the form of money or some other desired need; dreaming and striving alone does not provide results.
Are you a Thriver? You want to be a thriver! This is the person who has the right mental thinking (big dream); the right level of energy and is certainly willing to take action.

They take action and actively engage in planning success strategies so that they have a clear roadmap to achieve their heart’s desires.
