Business bootcamp: Helping MUAs get business savvy
If you’re a freelance makeup artist who works a full-time job during the week and only gets to do makeup on the weekends…we have a challenge for you.
Turn your passion into profit and start a business so you can spend your days wielding a lip pencil, brushing on foundation and brandishing a pot of eye shadow dust.
We find so many MUAs work in a retail job or customer service position Monday to Friday and then finally get to do their makeup freelancing on the weekends or week nights after work … and it makes them sad. Us too.
They strive so hard to get ahead so they can quit their jobs and work solely in their makeup business, but many tell is they don’t have the skills to do so.
Time and money are also big competitors for their attention.
That’s when the Makeup Media Marketing Business Bootcamp comes into play. We’ve received all sorts of wonderful feedback from the MUAs who have completed the bootcamp and gone on to achieve amazing results from implementing the steps outlined throughout the six-week course.
Here’s what MUA Melanie Ceveri says:
It’s crucial for a growing business to understand business things, pretty makeup skills won’t do it alone. Branding, marketing, bookkeeping, business plans… I know it may sound like the dark side of working for yourself but it can be fun and wonderful to set up your business professionally, watch it grow into something fabulous and have a real understanding of where your business is at. The Makeup Media and Marketing bootcamp has been really good to cover all these topics and more. The ladies are very helpful and friendly offering all their advice to help you grow your business to where you want it to be.
She’s not alone. This is why we get up in the mornings … this is why we love what we do.
