This is a guest blog post written by the amazing Amanda Riley.
I was homeschooled <— my excuse for my social awkwardness at any large group gatherings.
I attended the Hair Love event last year in Los Angeles specifically because I wanted to network. Not just network as a way to grow my business but network as a way to grow my community!
Community over Competition is the name of the game in the hair industry these days which has changed drastically since being in Cosmetology school 11 years ago.
I went to the Hair Love event knowing that in 2019 I wanted to continue to grow my community in the beauty industry through face-to-face interaction with like-minded individuals.
I marched up (while internally screaming) to several different women I admire in the beauty industry and told them I like their social media’s and follow them. Little did they know the courage it took for me to do that where I was sweating BULLETS in my velvet jacket.
Since then I’ve bonded with several of those women and 3 of them have spoken at my community event The Glow Social!
The fourth Glow Social event is October 21st at 9AM!
The Glow Social is all about “letting each other shine in the beauty industry through community and encouragement”! The fourth Glow Social event is October 21st at 9AM!
