FOUNDER AND CEO OF TAILOR SKINCARE
What do you do? I’m the overseer and doer of everything that keeps the business moving forward. Did you always want to work in the beauty industry? I never thought I’d work in the beauty industry! I thought I was going to be a clinical psychologist. How did you get Tailor Skincare off the ground? I started Tailor in 2012, but it was two years until it really took off. I was working full-time and Tailor was my hobby, but as it grew I had to decide whether to give it up or put 100% into it. Any career advice? Don’t be afraid of failure or hard work. In my first year of business, I was working so hard, but sometimes only sold one jar of Tailor Masque per month. It was soul-destroying, but it’s how you adapt that counts. Listen to your gut, listen to feedback, and learn how to take feedback objectively, not personally.
