INSPIRATION 54 / KRISTIN ESS
One of the best pieces of advice I’ve heard from other business owners is to look outside of your industry for inspiration. There is so much to learn from people who have different challenges than you do. I’ve followed the career of Kristin Ess for a long time now, and it’s been so inspiring to watch her grow.
Kristin started as a hairstylist when she was 16. Eventually she began to do hair for celebrities such as Lauren Conrad and Lucy Hale. She built up a following of loyal fans through her blog, The Beauty Department, where she shared tutorials and hair tricks. Recently she has launched a full-blown hair empire developing hair products which are high-quality but affordable and available to anyone.
I love Kristin’s business mentality, she works really really hard, and she is passionate about making people feel beautiful. In an article for Forbes, she said that the two essential qualities for an entrepreneur are a desire to constantly learn, and a strong work ethic. She also has a lot of good advice about finding your tribe and building a team which she shared on the Work Party Podcast.
Follow her page on Instagram to get updates about her business and see her freaking adorable dog.
Is it the weekend yet?
