Nicole Connor is a nail technician based in Toronto. She started writing short pieces for us to share her story.
My name is Nicole Connor, I’m from Toronto and I have been running a Nail Technician beauty salon for 5 years. I’ve learned to turn my passion into a reality, allowing me to learn how to develop the different techniques to make this profession my life project. I thank Beach Beauty for allowing me to share my experience on their webspace.
Thousands of Reasons
Many people ask me if this profession is profitable. The truth is yes, but you have to put effort into what you do. As a tech, one of the advantages is that you can do your work anywhere in the world.
Also, since I am my own boss, I can adjust the prices depending on the type of material and technique.
One of the most important things to me is that I could see my children grow, as I manage my schedule. I also have been invited to give tech classes in some schools, to young teens who want to learn this incredible profession.
New Developments and Personal Achievements
Thanks to financial freedom, I have managed to access studies related to new techniques in my career. Travelling, learning, and generating more experience make me fall in love with my profession more every day. Best of all is the creativity I developed in the process!
Being a tech has allowed me to be more empathetic with people, listen to them, and give them advice. After so many attempts and failures in my life, I can say that it was worth the effort and sacrifice I had to make to get to where I am today.
