You know sometimes you are on the train or walking in the city or just watching TV and you catch an ad that keeps you interested beyond 3 seconds? A word or particular phrase just pops out at you and you have to read the whole thing. That happened to me today. I was doing my usual commute to work and happened to glance up from my phone as the train passed a billboard advertising beautician courses in Melbourne. As the humdrum daily routine continued I just couldn’t get it out my head. I’ve always thought about leaving the 9-5 office world and freelancing. If I completed the beauty school course I could work when I want and where I want. I could specialise in stone massage therapy, I know it’s up and coming and there is only a rising demand for it, but I could also offer other services on the side. I saw the same billboard and figured it must be a sign. I mean obviously it’s a sign, that’s what billboards literally are but I mean more of a metaphorical you must do this now sign. I looked into gaining a diploma in beauty therapy and the course I looked at covered so many topics and even trained you on the business side of things. It had to be done. Maybe I was getting ahead of myself but I immediately started drafting my notice and looking into buying some beauty equipment online. So I guess today was pretty revolutionary. Nothing is finalised yet but if I can keep up this inspiration and momentum I should be a fully qualified freelance beautician in no time! The course is extremely thorough and covers all kinds of topics from conducting salon finances to providing body massages. I’m so glad I looked up from my phone at that moment, I never thought an ad could have such an impact.
