52 Kelly Carlson – Being Good to Yourself is Great for Your Business

Lori Crete - The Beauty Biz Show 500Today, I am absolutely thrilled to introduce you to Kelly Carlson. I last saw her several years ago as we shared lavender gimlets together in Chicago, and it has been incredible to watch her grow. Kelly has been a licensed esthetician since 2007, and she is one of my very first clients and a long-lost friend. In this episode you will be able to not only hear, but feel that skincare is her calling as she shares about her inspiring path and the decisions she has made in her personal life to help grow her business.

Kelly explains that taking care of herself and her energy made it possible for her business to grow. One of the biggest things that has influenced her personal life is Qoya which is a movement practice that combines essential movement, dance, and yoga and guides us in our essence as women as wise, wild, and free. Now Kelly is a Qoya teacher as well as beauty biz practitioner. Qoya has helped her move away from her inner critic which has allowed her to feel better internally and for her beauty business to strive as a result. I had a blast spending time with her on the podcast and I think you will too.

Kelly Carlson’s 3 tips to Create Beauty Biz Success:

  1. Seek out people who can help guide you- investing in your own well-being is the best investment you can make
  2. Trust yourself and find practices to help you do that
  3. Take your “energy-hygene” practice more seriously

If you can just tune into what is true for you then it just shuts off the noise.” – Kelly Carlson
