With over 24 years of experience in the nail and beauty industry, mentoring beauty entrepreneurs who have won multiple awards, Surmanti Nail Tech Training Owner and Founder Maxim Titter shares here words of wisdom for those wanting to launch a business and career in beauty.
1) ‘Serving other will fill your soul’
Over the years I have personally trained hundreds of nail techs to become beauty entrepreneurs. I feel training has been one of my greatest personal achievements. The joy I feel when I see my student’s growth and progress just makes my heart swell with pride. Success to me is – going to bed each night with your soul at peace, knowing you have made a positive difference is somebody else’s life.
2) ‘Celebrate yourself being perfectly imperfect’
The fear of being inadequate and inferior to another is ultimately destructive, it holds you back from being the best version of yourself.
Having trained overseas, travelled around the globe, and being constantly surrounded by an array of incredible and inspiring women all through my career in the nail and beauty industry, it is impossible not to face comparison.
As I learnt more about myself, through working with other inspiring women, I have learnt to put my insecurities aside. I have embraced my imperfections and continued to create bigger dreams and goals. I celebrated my authentic self by using my own life lessons about business (both good and bad), in the hope to educate and inspire women to move forward with their dreams and goals. Each of us is precious and unique. No one’s journey is the same.
3) ‘Be open to change and transformation’
Having owned multiple salons and businesses, I have learnt to be flexible with my dreams and aspirations, and to be comfortable with adapting my goals to suit my current life purpose. I grew to realise that some dreams were no longer relevant as they did not fit in with my current objectives. On the flip side, some of my dreams become bigger than expected and have taken on a life of their own, much more than I ever could have imagined. Never be embarrassed by your failures – LEARN from them and start again.
4) ‘BE YOUtiful’
Be courageous enough to express your authentic self. “To be nobody but yourself in this world”. Compete with the only person that matters – yourself. Know that your only competition is who you
were yesterday. To take personal responsibility, to be better than you were yesterday, that is to live up to your potential.
5) ‘Always strive to be better than yesterday’
As a business owner, a beauty mentor, and a mother, I have come to learn that what strengthens your soul and creates greatness in your life is small constant daily improvements. Every day I work on doing something that pushes me outside my comfort zone. A healthy self-esteem comes from continual self-improvement.
