Importance of Business Connections!

So I have one thing I wanted to hammer home not only about the beauty industry but whatever profession you want to get into. MAKE BUSINESS CONNECTIONS!!

A woman from a scholarship program I applied for contacted me and although I did not win the scholarship money she did offer me some contacts at L'Oreal. 

Although all the internship opportunities at her company are for upperclassman, getting to know people in the industry never hurts because you never know what doors will open up for you. 

So in conclusion I just want to say take advantage of ever opportunity. It is not always about what you know but WHO you know and people learn as they go. Its ok not to know everything right away. 

More posts will definitely be coming soon. Check out my youtube page for a number of videos I have posted lately. 

Until next time,
