Do you want to know more about how to get your license?
Bellus Academy Spa Nail Educator, Irma Liera, talks about the benefits of attending Bellus Academy and the opportunities it gives you for a career with a military background.
Irma started her education while her husband was in Korea and she believes it is one of the best things she could have done with her time. As someone who would move so often, it was a great way for her to connect and meet with other people. She has found that a lot of military wives are bored and do not always know what to do with their time.
Bellus Academy is a great solution for a military spouse especially if they do not have children. The twenty-week program is ideal for those with a spouse who are gone for an extended amount of time.
Irma asserts that the programs at Bellus Academy have gotten even better as they now teach you about business and financial literacy. They help with online profiles, job placements, and ways to get your name out there. She talks about the ways that beauty changes lives and the entire school comes together to help instill confidence across the board.
Now as an instructor, she enjoys having the opportunity to help open the eyes of students and help them to prevent mistakes. She loves to offer advice and preparation for the real world. Irma says the students do not realize how much they touch the lives of the instructors. She encourages them to be confident in everything they do and to not be afraid. Always keep learning and continue with pursuing passions.
Having her license helped Irma support her family with five children. It gave her the opportunity to support her family. She was challenged to adapt and grow while working from home. She explains that as long as you work on base, your license is good in every salon wherever you move to in the military. This gives you a great amount of flexibility.
Irma was very fortunate with an opportunity to step in and work out of her home with a permit on base. It is very rare but doable and she could not be more grateful. She emphasizes that the program is only twenty weeks long, and is a great door opener to a future career. She was able to work on base and build clientele and ask to have permit on base to work from home.
It is a great investment to make without going as high up as college. The money you invest can be earned back within a year of acquiring your license. This field gives you the opportunity to work anywhere. With Bellus Academy, you have the ability to be a part of iTech and work internationally with your license.
Some may worry that they cannot have a career because they are devoted to their husbands and families. Irma is a strong believer that they can have their own careers and be supportive. It gives great potential to turn into a career without taking support away.
