Business Evolution

AN INTENSIVE TWO DAY FORUM ON THE BUSINESS OF MAKEUP ARTISTRY

It’s one thing to do beautiful makeup - it’s quite another to have sustainable and growth-based career in makeup artistry.

The later requires not only understanding product and technique, but knowing how to effectively run your own business in a way that allows you to set and achieve concrete goals, develop a path for success that is clear and decisive, and develop marketing and promotional plans that allow you to be seen by your peers and clients as the clear choice when hiring a makeup talent.

In Business Evolution, we will take a look at every aspect of how you run your career and come up with a strong and solid plan for you and your work that will enable you to take every aspect of your business to new levels and reach a definitive level of sustainability for your career.

This is more than just a look through your portfolio or a discussion on the importance of a website - Business Evolution asks you to consider a bigger picture approach to your career, incorporate long term planning into your thought process, find a true direction for you and your business that will maximize your happiness and the longevity of your business.

For the freelance makeup artist struggling with the ongoing concern of where is the next job? - Business Evolution takes you to a new level of confidence and security in your career.

For the artist working in the retail or salon business, where the challenge is creating your own future exclusive of reliance on only someone else’s business to secure yours - Business Evolution allows you to learn how to mix both your current role and one of a freelance artist with complete success.

For the student or anyone just getting started in an industry that is growing bigger and more competitive every day - Business Evolution is your kick start into your new world and the extra push that will set you forth ahead of the rest of the pack in your first steps into this exciting industry.
