Did you know that at this very moment, there are scientists in labs working on advancements in cosmeceutical ingredients, laser and LED technology?  You can’t know everything because it’s not done being made.. Stay open to learning, no matter if you have 2 months of experience or 20 years. The humility of being teachable is a trait of a successful business person.  Always be willing to learn.  

One of Jenni and my favorite parts of running Lipgloss + Aftershave is when we get to connect with spa professionals and help them learn more about digital media.  We love it when we can give advice that we know will help them grow their business. We mostly teach at trade shows.  At the beginning of every class, I congratulate the people in the room for understanding that taking time to learn is just as important as shopping the trade show floor.  

One of our goals is to help promote education in the professional skincare industry.  We try and offer free education whenever we can. There are so many ways that spa professionals can learn!   

Virtually every brand offers some sort of education to the businesses that carry their products.  Many offer classes at trade shows, while many offer full-day classes throughout the year. Several brands even offer FREE online education.
