The Natural Pivot

The Natural Pivot

I want to preface this post, by saying that I wrote this some weeks ago, and keep pushing it back, but perhaps⁠ "the time is now".⁠ ⁠

So here goes....⁠ ⁠

You can be anything you want to be..... 👸🏼⁠ ⁠

SOMETIMES.....I sit and dream and wonder if I chose the right career path.... I mean, tanning its so simple, right?!⁠ ⁠

Wellllll, turns out I'm not just a spray tanner. I actually have a business degree, and I spent the first 10 years of my post-uni days as a "corporate" until, I got SO sick of it, that I literally had my @oprah moment (ah-hah!) packed up my things, and thought... yep, I'm starting Aussie Bombshell!⁠ ⁠

Aussie Bombshell's core business began as wholesale and distribution - selling spray tan to beauty salons and day spas across the country (and the world)...⁠ ⁠

BUT THEN.....⁠ ⁠

A combination of lack of passion, and some personal circumstances led to a natural pivot into a different part of the business - the spray tan salon.

I built up a pretty strong with very loyal spray tan clientele (you guys 😘) with virtually no advertising.

This tiny spray tan salon overtook the entire wholesale side of the business, which continued to drop away to almost nothing. FACT.⁠ ⁠

This year, I was planning to spend more time off the salon floor, and back into my "business" roots and focus on setting up my online business and re-build the wholesaling of spray tan solution....

And now, these are the ONLY parts in the business still standing. This TRULY must be a case of "be careful what you wish for" cos HERE. I. AM. 😳⁠ ⁠

I guess my point is, that at times in our lives, whether we feel like we are "on the path" or "off the path" ...we just have to find the courage keep going. ⁠ ⁠

This moment has thrown us ALL off our current paths.... but has it REALLY? ⁠ ⁠ I mean, how many of us get up every day, just got go through the motions to get a pay cheque, but aren't actually truly happy?⁠ ⁠

This moment, allows many of us to evaluate our happiness, and options for the future.⁠ ⁠

What I'm saying is: Be open.⁠

Don't be so rigid. ⁠ ⁠ And don't be scared.⁠ ⁠

Consider: Wherever you end up may be better than where you were before.⁠ ⁠

 

Things are gonna be A.O.K. 💛⁠
