I did something today I have not done in a long while, I jumped on Seek to see what the market was like for beauty professionals wanting to take a ‘normal’ 9-5 job. 
Mates, it wasn’t pretty. In fact, it was about as pretty as the time I tried to eat unpeeled prawns whilst intoxicated, which I can assure you, was not pretty. #RAgrets 🦐
🖤
Most roles were entry level, nothing wrong with that unless of course, you’ve gotten pretty used to having a rumble in the freelance jungle + the idea of working in Myer with someone called Sharon as your boss has you scratching the walls down. The rest weren’t actually ‘real jobs’, an invitation to invest in a MLM - which is in essence running your own gig with someone else’s product + photography studios wanting a ‘freelance makeup artist’ aka banging you on a retainer while you shoot them invoices, again running your own gig. Sometimes there are those unicorn ‘what-the-shit-sign-me-up’ jobs in there, but today was not that day.
🖤
So where exactly does that leave the rest of us, non-normal-job-loving-creatures? Because, honestly, I’ve gotten pretty used to a lady-who isn’t me- shaving my dog’s bum hole + I don’t think entry level wages are going to cover such things. 🖤
It means when those once in a lifetime jobs come by, I need to be fucking ready to make the most out of those opportunities. Are you a makeup, hair, beauty or creative person? Is your skill-set tight? Come and say heeeey to us at the @beautyschoolbrisbane 🖤

I don’t always do serious posts, but when I do ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Walking away from full-time, permanent employment at the Federal Government to take a gamble on my side hustle was one of the bravest things I have done (...and my ass is tattooed 🥑). But most days I roll into work wearing activewear and I literally spent this morning throwing a tennis ball for my dog. The gamble was worth the freedom. 
It was, and still is, sometimes fucking terrifying to rely on your wits and your skill set to make some clams. Metaphorically, I wanted to have my axe sharpened so I never missed out on an opportunity, doing good work generally breeds more work. However at the time, I found it hard to find a fast, cost effective training option, especially if hair (that covered all the tricky stuff like blowwaves, male grooming, chic updos 😭). I had to up-skill the hard, expensive way, but cultivating those talents has kept my business pumping this last 18 months. Which is exactly why I created @beautyschoolbrisbane - so that artists, beauty therapists + creatives can strengthen their skill set + add another revenue stream to their businesses. 
Makeup artists... Can you do GOOD hair?! I get 80% of my bookings because I can do both... Hair school kicks off in October.

If you are a beauty therapist, photographer, blogger, model or creative can you do makeup?? Makeup school starts in August. 
My baby @beautyschoolbrisbane is on sale atm (Save $500 on course fees + free @makeup_weapons makeup brush set or hair product pack!) , we are launching at @brisbanehairandbeautyexpo, but we’ll sell out our 2019 classes before then. Hollar for more info 🖤🖤🖤 &&& thank you for listening to my Ted Talk 😂🖤 #beautyschoolbrisbane #bossbeautybusiness #brisbanemakeupartist #bhbe

ANNNNNND that’s a wrap 🎤 ⤵️ #micdrop. 
What a damned pleasure the @tvweekmag Logies were this year: amazing crew + amazing talent: incredible experience. It’s the people that make the long days easy. Swipe across for our handy work on the talented boys from @whydontwemusic - Jonah, Corbin, Jack, Daniel + Zack you guys were a dream to work with. Thank you to @mariagjg03 for assisting me, you’re the real MVP. 
Also, side note, I had absolutely no idea what female hysteria was until I saw girls literally stalking the boys around our hotel room + crying when they got a hug from one of them, at that age, I was the only stalking of people I was doing was out the front of BWS when I was asking folks to buy lil ole underaged me passion fruit UDLs 😂🤷🏼‍♀️. Ps. I’ll stop wearing black to work when there is a darker colour 🖤🖤🖤 #brisbanemakeupartist #commercialmakeup #tvweeklogies #malegrooming

They say no one works harder then the devil, maybe Kris Jenner... But fo’ serial, in the month of June, I think I would be a solid candidate for the title. Launching @beautyschoolbrisbane whilst juggling my normal work load, delivering copy for my clients, working in my own bizzay + trying to grasp every opportunity has been total insanity.. in the most wonderful way. Tomorrow, your favourite foundation slinging bandit will be down the coast, on the tools for some international superstars for ze Logies, meanwhile back in Brisbane, my @bossbeautybusiness team is rocking some seriously cool freelance + commercial gigs. It’s unreal-banana-peel 🙈🍌. Here I am looking bloody serine AF, but mate, let’s not play silly buggars, there has been some moments of madness 🤪🤭. Buuuut right now I feel calm and ready #armsspaghetti 😂🍝. Let’s.Do.This. #EoFYhustle
