Today we’d like to introduce you to Jess Daniel.
Hi Jess, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I was an overworked single mom climbing the corporate ladder for ten years. Most of my friends were in creative jobs or the beauty industry. I liked that they were able to work in a creative environment, make their schedules, be their boss, &make people feel better about themselves all day long! I didn’t want to compete with my friends so that I couldn’t do hair, nails, skin, etc. One day, when I was on my way to my spray tan appointment, it hit me! Custom Spray Tans! There was no one in my area, offering it mobile, so I dove right in and fell in love with the craft immediately.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I officially started my business in May 2019. Everything was going great. I was building clientele like crazy! March 2020 came along and business came to an abrupt stop. COVID!!! As you know, all of the essential businesses were closed for nearly two months. I was able to reopen in May 2020 business didn’t exactly go back to normal. It has been inconsistent. There are a lot fewer events, which means a lot fewer spray tans.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a spray tan artist. I customize every spray tan to each client’s skin tone and undertone. I specialize in bridal tans. I am so proud that I have been able to grow my business in such a short amount of time. What sets me aside is my attention to detail, my grit, my passion.
Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
Make lots of friends in the beauty industry that you can trust. It’s good to have people to bounce ideas off! It will also grow your clientele because they will refer clients to you, and you will refer clients to them! Having referral partners is so crucial… I also offer education courses to those who are just starting out!
