    Pros

    Benefits are about the only thing.

    Pros

    Great supportive community of women to help you succeed. Get to make clients feel beautiful about themselves.

    Cons

    Money isn’t steady. Sometimes you have to go through a full makeup presentation and makeover for nothing and if ends up being a huge waste of time

    Advice to Management

    Teach your workers how to apply makeup on half of their clients’ faces while they watch in a mirror; that way, the clients can learn and teach themselves at yhe same time how to apply their makeup.

    Pros

    Flexable, supportive, great product, growth potential, positive environment, great support system, training.

    Cons

    Work alone, constantly out at events trying to network. Fronting the cost for inventory to build up your personal store. It’s not required but it is a lot more convenient to be able to have it on hand for your customers.
