Hi my name is Veronica Hall and I wanted take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you a little behind the scenes look at me and why I am here.
In a previous life I worked in the mortgage industry and was successful there for many years. I married, had 2 wonderful boys, bought a house and lived my own version of the American Dream. However, several years ago I had the rug pulled out from under me so to speak, went through a divorce, and ultimately decided to make a change in my career.
Honestly changing my career was probably one of the most difficult decisions I ever made. The uncertainty of success after living comfortably for so long was scary AF. I will skip the details, but I basically jumped into beauty school with both feet and after many agonizing months came out with a new skill and outlook on life.
I received my estheticians license in April 2018 and made the switch full time to opening a business. I have already learned so much about myself, people, business and everything in between in a very few short months.
So now I that I have given you tidbit of the who, I want to talk about the why.
Personally, I have always viewed the beauty industry as this secret club, one that gaining entrance to was not only impossible, but exhausting. I am a mother of 2, I can hardly remember if I brushed my teeth sometimes, let alone figure out the difference between MAC or Channel, Image or Eminence. It has always just been so overwhelming. The one facial I had in my life prior to beauty school was nice, and of course I bought what she recommended, she was the expert, not me. So, for many years, I took the advice and recommendations of others, mostly because why did I want to bother, it was all so confusing and unreachable.
That brings me to the why part. In beauty school I learned so little about products, but I had the yearning to research, test, breakdown and make sense of this industry that I had been so intimidated by. I knew I wasn’t the only one, many a client has discussed with me their trepidation and almost anxiety of the products available to them. It all started to make sense to me, I am a teacher by instinct, I wanted to take my knowledge and make the beauty industry and its products more manageable. I wanted to be the person that helped my clients achieve their goals with their skin and help them to see that if I can do it, a woman who washed her face with baby soap for more years than I would like to admit, that they too could be successful. I am at my happiest when a client leaves my treatment room with a smile and a goal that they believe in!
Now I feel that I am answering my calling, as an aesthetics mentor. Although mentor has probably never been associated with skin care. To me it is something we all need in our lives, that person who can be a friend, who can be a guide, and someone who has the knowledge to help us make the best decisions for ourselves and our lives.
Lastly, I want to talk about the what, or the now what. It is my goal to talk with you via social media, direct message, email etc. I want you to know that when you look to my website for information you will find it, and if you don’t all you have to do is ask and I will be there to give you my best answer. I am going to start at the basics and spend time talking about everything from skins types, to dermal fillers and botox. I want to make this journey with you, in hopes that we can learn not only together, but from each other. Let’s take our common experiences so we can learn, laugh, cry or whatever we want.
All My Love Veronica
