Congratulations on setting a goal! As a future professional in the beauty and wellness industry, you have chosen wisely to embark on a career that has unlimited potential. So, what’s next?
• Define your goal: While the end result is important, it’s even more important to define your goal in the “big picture” sense. What are the steps you should take to reach your goal?
Defined your personal style and what that means to you in terms of where you see yourself?
Researched potential employers?
Visited the community you envision your dream job in?
Defined your budget and an income that will sustain you during the first year of employment?
• Break your goal down into smaller, more achievable immediate goals.
Write down your goals
Arrange them in order of importance. What works better for you-knocking out the small goals or tackling the difficult ones?
Perfect each piece of your goals as you go along to mark your progression.
• Be a solution-based person. While it is a huge attribute to be able to recognize problems, it’s even more important to be a part of the solution. An employee who has suggestions for how to make reasonable changes that benefit a company on the whole is a very valuable employee.
• Anticipate challenges.
What will you do if you are presented with a challenge?
Do you have a backup plan?
Who can you call for sound advice and emotional support? Select people who support your goals.
• Celebrate your success! Try to celebrate something you have done to reach your goals EVERY DAY. Being a success isn’t always about the end result. The journey is equally as important. If you choose to celebrate some measure of success every day, you will feel a greater sense of purpose and accomplishment along the way.
“It’s important to have specific dreams. Dream Big. Dream without fear.”
— Randy Pausch
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
