In this episode, Ellen Sheffer shares her amazing story of how she has built a brick and mortar business in the college town of Greenville, North Carolina. It took her years of hard work and dedication to get to where she is, and she isn’t looking back!
While working nights as a crisis counselor, she quickly realized that this wasn’t the job she wanted to have anymore, so she quit her job. While in between jobs, she worked cleaning houses and apartments in the city of Greenville to make ends meet. While watching TV one day she saw Fabiola Trujillo spray tanning, and thought…hey, I could do this! She had previous experience in a salon while in college and actually already knew the art of spray tanning. And with that, it all came together!
In this episode you will learn:
- Hard work and dedication pay off!
- The “dots” are much easier to connect looking back
- How Ellen services and thrives in a college town
- How Ellen was able to open a brick and mortar location
- + more!
