Jo’s Insights – MAY

managing-your-time

Time for You, Your Family, Your Life

Being the CEO of Xtreme Lashes® can be hectic at times. Balancing my personal life and work has taken on new meaning as I continue to learn and grow  through my direct involvement in all aspects of the business. Some may say I’m a workaholic, but my work is my absolute passion. I’m always searching for ways to improve Xtreme Lashes products and services for our customers and to minimize the modern day woman’s beauty routine.

This ambition and drive is something that began during my childhood. Taking part in individual and team sports was an important part of my personal development. When I was younger, I played volleyball, swam, and participated in track and field. Sports teach you how to work well with others, compete, and become a goal-driven individual. These qualities helped me immensely as an entrepreneur.

Outside of work, I take the sport team mentality with me. I like to incorporate my family members into traditional household duties so that I have more energy and can spend quality time with my family. Household chores quickly became a burden when I became a single mom with four children. If I were to take care of it all by myself, I would miss out on family time and quickly become drained with these tasks. I made sure to incorporate my children in all aspects of household duties, from cooking, to cleaning, and even doing laundry by making it a family activity and incorporating music into this family, collaborative event. Aside from spending time with your kids, you’re teaching them to be responsible with learned skills, such as teamwork and leadership that they can apply to their everyday lives. Dancing to the music while working will also decrease your stress level and give everyone a chance for some fun physical exercise!

If your children are older, they can be your greatest resource. When I decided to follow my dream as an entrepreneur, my children were old enough to co-found Xtreme Lashes with me. Because we were used to working together as a family, each of them was able, even as young adults, to direct, develop and deliver across all departments including  product development, quality control, education and training, marketing, web development, public relations and sales… You’ll have the opportunity to grow alongside your children with the added benefit of having the most loyal, dedicated, and caring employees possible.

Now that you’ve incorporated your children, what about your partner? Choose someone you’re compatible with that enjoys doing what you’re doing with similar ethics, morals, and principles, which will allow you to connect with them on different levels. Be transparent before you get married—be yourself. Discuss your dreams, goals and aspirations; discuss workloads and work styles; don’t forget to discuss financials, child rearing and hobbies. Unless discussed and agreed upon, prior to marriage, these things can cause stress on your marriage in the future, especially when children are involved.

Although my husband and I started Xtreme Lashes during the first year of our marriage, our compatibility allowed us to operate a business together, as a team, lowering the degree of any stress that we experienced.  With his support and dedication, we brought Xtreme Lashes to the forefront of eyelash extension service and quality.

It’s not all work though; work and play can be one and the same. For example, Martin and I take biannual cruises to relax and enjoy ourselves, but we’ll also sit by the pool researching business tactics while tanning! We also have fun with our families; cycling, swimming, volleyball, going on excursions, and taking vacations together!

Overall, here are five lessons to take away from this passage to manage your time in a healthy manner:

  • Practice your individuality without infringing on others.
  • Be transparent and selective when choosing your partner. Practice full disclosure and informed consent.
  • Incorporate your children and significant others into what you do.
  • The world is not perfect. Don’t create an artificial environment for your children where everything works. Allow them to make mistakes and learn from their experiences.
  • Don’t let outside factors control you.

The outcome is up to each of us and we want it that way.

Julie Nguyen – Featured Lash Stylist: April 2014

Julie Nguyen April SOMJulie Nguyen

Bowie and Crofton, Maryland 

Xtreme Lash Stylist Since 2006

Lash Moi 

10 Things about ME and Why I LOVE to Lash:

What was your occupation before becoming a Lash Stylist? 

Prior to opening Lash Moi, I was a hair stylist and owned a full service salon in College Park, MD.

Tell us a little more about it? What did you enjoy about it? 

My joy from being a hair stylist and owning the salon was being able to take part in making people look and feel good. Our clients would come into our salon to either update their look or  completely change their current look and would turn to me to do just that. I felt that I was able to give men and woman a bit of confidence when they left the salon that they didn’t have when they walked in. I also truly cherished the friendships I was able to establish with my clients.

What prompted you to look for something new? 

In trying to keep up with the current beauty trends we researched the idea of adding lash  extension services at our salon. Although I enjoyed doing hair, I didn’t love it. Once I took my Xtreme Lashes Level 1 Training class I fell in love and found my true passion! I decided to give up doing hair to focus on doing lashes and now I couldn’t imagine doing anything else!

What made you choose Xtreme Lashes?

My sister Emilie, who is also an Xtreme Lashes lash stylist, and I were both interested in doing lashes so we began to research the different companies and found Xtreme to be the best company, as they use the top products and have the appropriate training that we  were looking for.

Does your salon offer any other services? 

We provide cosmetic tattooing/permanent makeup and waxing services also. At Lash Moi,  we currently have 8 Xtreme Certified Lash stylits and 2 Estheticians.

What was the most memorable lash application and why?

One of my clients went to another salon to get her lashes filled and came back to me crying. She was so upset by the way her lashes looked when left the other salon and expressed to me  how much she loved my work and how I did her lashes. Hearing this from her not only made  me feel so special, but also made me appreciate my hard work and dedication to my business.  I strive to make sure that each and everyone of my client’s look and feel beautifulwhen they  leave our salon, but when I hear it from them, I know I truly am lucky to be doing what I am meant to do and I know I have found my passion.

What’s YOUR favorite Xtreme Lashes retail product and why? 

My favorite product would be Amplifeye. I have had many clients come to the salon with damaged and sparse lashes where clusters and other types of lashes. I have seen amazing results in there lash growth once they began using Amplifeye. Shortly after they began using the product, they were able to get Xtreme Lashes done.

If you can give ONE advice to a new lash stylist getting into the business,  what would it be?

Don’t give up. No matter what the obstacle is, you need to find the strength to overcome  it and believe in yourself, as you will find that you are much stronger than you think.

Do you have any favorite client testimonials about your work? 

“I would like to stop and take a moment and THANK YOU for the fine service your business provided. Your Professional Team was extremely polite. I was seated in a relaxing upscale atmosphere with soothing music. I liked the way your staff addressed me by name, as it made me feel special. I appreciated the fact I was even offered refreshments, which totally blew me away. My Technician performed quality work, explaining fully each step along the way what was being done. They even gave sound advice on the upkeep and how to prolong touch-up visits. I felt they were not trying to take my money or take advantage of me. My personal needs according to my activities were addressed. Upon follow-up, I was asked” how can they improve their service for me”. They sought to personalize the time I spent with them and made me feel like FAMILY. Thank You So Much and I look forward to each and every visit, it is my relaxing time. Also, my Husband LOVES MY LASHES and tells me how sexy I look. He even doesn’t mind paying :) :) :)” – Sharlene S.

What is your Xtreme goal? Where do you see yourself in 2 years? 

Since we have established, Lash Moi has 2 locations and is continuing to grow. My goal  is to open more locations closer to all of our clients who make over an hour drive to get their lashes done. Our team began with just my sister and I and now includes 12 employees. We hope to continue to grow as a team and to provide the best service we can to our clients. In addition, Lash Moi strives to give back to our community.  We have recently partnered with My Sister’s Place, Sarah’s House, Hospice of the Chesapeake  and several local youth ministries in our effort to support the public. I would like to work more  with our community in giving back as I feel that is really important. I hope that in 2 years I can  continue to make women look and feel absolutely beautiful because to me, if I can put a smile on their face, it makes this journey completely worthwhile.

Congratulations Julie!
