Connecting with other industry professionals usually happens on set in a hurry while your client is staring at you anxiously ready to begin or end her appointment. You’re often standing there scurrying through your pockets or bag, searching for your phone or business card (IF you even remembered to pack it!) with that dreaded “rushed” feeling because you’re running to your next gig! And we are all too familiar with the suspect DM’s we receive from other pros looking to connect, but we are left having to do some extra research. Is this a real person? Are they genuinely trying to connect with me? Are they just trying to get a competitive edge by learning my rates and business process?
There’s nothing like the invaluable experience of making an in-person connection, sharing stories, discovering commonalities, offering advice, eventually getting to work together, and hopefully placing each other in the position where you can both make some COINS! As the old saying goes, “Your network is your net worth.” This is why we don’t want you to miss the opportunity to come out and share a drink with us and make some valuable connections with your industry peers.
Who Is This Event For?
This event is specifically catered to Makeup Artists, Bloggers, Photographers, Models, Hair Stylists, Lash Artists and all of those in the Beauty and Fashion industry! While most of us have chatted on Instagram, shared likes and comments, connected as friends on several other social media platforms, we never really get the chance to meet in person until we’re either hired together or by happenstance. Profession not listed above? We’d love to have you too!
