2020 was one of my worst years for my business. I know a lot of people could probably say the same thing. But here's the thing: it was also the best year for my business.
I know you're like "what Sheila? How can it be both?" And I understand the confusion. When quarantine started in March, I came crashing down. I was at my lowest of lows, the brokest I'd been since I'd started in PMU. BUT I turned it around and ended up having my most successful, most lucrative month in my business ever, this past December.
I don't say it to brag. I say it because I want you to know that you can do the same thing. I made a lot of money last year and I plan on making more this year. But in order to get to this level - we have to talk about the cold hard truth of making money. We're lifting the veil, okay? We're talking about it.

So for this episode, we have the incredibly talented Mimi Johnson, microblader, influencer, and beauty brand marketer. Since getting into the business she's become a pro at the pivot and she has some really great advice for all of you who have struggled through this...
2020 has been...an interesting year. It's been a year nothing like anything we've ever experienced before. But I still think there's a lot to be grateful for, a lot of good things that managed to come out of this crazy year.
So for this episode, I got on with my husband, Will, to continue our series exploring our relationship as a PMU artist slash beauty business coach and high school educator. We talk about our favorite quotes on gratitude, our thoughts on its importance, and what we're most grateful for this year.
