195 Solocast – The Last Facial of 2023

This is my annual end-of-the-year podcast, where I sit down after my last facial of 2023 and muse on all that has happened and what is coming up in the new year. In this episode, I circle back and assess how I have moved forward. I share my experience working at my first trade show and what I learned from the first time I was left speechless by a client.

Listen in to learn my top seven takeaways from 2023 as an esthetician.
