Do you know the NUMBER ONE thing that holds beauty entrepreneurs back from being successful? It's themselves. It's your mindset.
I see too many entrepreneurs in the beauty industry that aren't focusing on SALES. Because we have all of these false narratives and myths in our heads around sales; how salespeople are pushy, rude, sneaky, manipulative, etc., etc.
But if you aren't focusing on sales...how are you going to sell? You know? And if you're not selling then how exactly are you making money?
I think we all need to focus on sales more because, to me, sales is the root of everything. It's not just about making more money -- it's about living a better life.
For this episode, I brought on one of my good friends and sales advisor Tracy Russel, aka Inked Arches PMU! Tracy was actually a student in my program, Pretty Rich Bosses, and now she works with me every day helping other beauty entrepreneurs like...

Stacy is a best selling author and speaker, the owner of a multiple 7 figure business, and the creator of the Foot Traffic Formula. In this podcast, we share our fears, our lessons learned during coronavirus, and tips for beauty bosses to recession-proof your small business.

I can't tell you enough how painful it can be when someone just copies your business, any aspect of it. Anything that you put your hard effort and passion into that just gets nabbed by another person to use for their own benefit? I mean, if you've gone through it you know, it sucks. But it's not the end of the world. Take it from me, I've been there countless times. I've been hurt but people I barely knew and people that were really close to me. I've been hurt by people I thought I could trust. It all sucks.
But I, and my business, have survived! And I guarantee that there are people reading this that are nodding their heads along like "Yup, Sheila's right again. Been there, done that. But I made it out." So, in this episode, I'm going to talk all about what you...
