The theme of today’s episode is a recurring one that I revisit at the end of each year and hands down these episodes are always some of my favorites to record. As we look ahead to the new year, it is a great time for us to also assess what the past year brought us and what it taught us. In this episode, I share my top takeaways from touching faces in 2021. I also talk about what happened after my last facial of 2021 and the best decision I made last year.

Listen in to find out how to set bold boundaries for your beauty business, how to navigate small talk with clients, and some practical ways to handle last-minute disruptions.
