Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachelle Keith.
Rachelle, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
A year ago, amidst the Pandemic, I started a new journey already working a Full-Time Job. I was previously doing freelance makeup so I was in the beauty industry already, but I lost my passion for it. Hesitantly I took a course and educated myself on all things lashes, social media marketing, branding and most importantly time management. Everyday since the first day I took that course, I have practiced consistently and vigorously at 100% into this business I created for myself. Also, everyday since the first day I thought about quitting, lol. Any business owner can attest, we have days we just feel things aren’t working in our favor. However, I couldn’t be more proud of myself for never giving up and creating a vision, an environment and community that supports me in what I do. I only can plan and wish to grow from here in every way, but I love what I do. I make beautiful ladies even more gorgeous and add a little extra confidence – one set of lashes at a time.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
If anyone has ever told you starting a business alone is easy, they lied. In life, there are always struggles, so yes it was a rollercoaster for me. From finding out quickly, I needed to learn how to be ambidextrous (right-hand dominant girl over here) to seeing how little patience I had with myself…. its been not only a journey business-wise but also in my personal life. When you envision something for yourself, you either give it everything you’ve got or you watch that dream fade away little by little. I worked not only full-time at my corporate job but then worked for myself after hours and weekends for myself, for free for the first few months. Trial and error is an understatement, learning what products worked and didn’t, investing in good quality will always trump trying to take the cheap way to make a quick buck. I had to ask myself, “Would I come to me?” and if so, ” What would that look like? How do I make this the best possible experience?” I have and will continue to go through the ‘Growing Pains’ of perfecting my craft.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I am a Lash Artist in the central Orlando, FL area. I specialize in both Hybrid, Volume and Mega Volume sets of lash extensions. I not only provide a service but an experience. I want anyone who comes to me to feel they can relax and trust they are in good hands. Whether you want a talk-free service, a therapist for a couple of hours or take a nap – you will be excited to come back each time for your appointment. My brand revolves around a luxurious treatment, from the type of lashes I use to the bed you lay on and the goodie-bags all new clients receive, you will feel like a VIP every time.
What makes you happy?
The reason I ever got into this industry what the sense of fulfillment it brought me. When I hear a client get so excited explaining the desired look they are going for, to the few seconds of anticipation built up as I hand them the mirror to finally take a look at the finished product, to the reaction of pure joy/awe? …. priceless. I am an embodiment of self-love and being able to give a little bit of love through glamour to every person that walks in my door is payment enough. Anything else is a bonus.
