Whether you’re mapping out your career for the first time or thinking about changing career paths, choosing the next step to take can be overwhelmingly confusing. Do you venture down a path that offers you a practical job with great career prospects? Or do you follow your heart and choose a career based on your passion and interests? Most think it has to be one or the other but it can be both.
Marc Anthony said: “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”. This couldn’t ring more true in a society where we are living longer and the career options are endless. With social media and technology, it has never been easier to study and do what you love whilst getting paid to do it.
A key to career success is to find your passion because passion will show through your work. Some of our most successful beauty therapists and salon owners are the ones who love helping their clients feel great.
If you find yourself at a crossroads where you have to choose between your passion or your career, find a way to have both. Consider your interests, strengths, and values. Understand what motivates you and then plan a career around it. If the beauty industry interests you, explore the different career opportunities available. A Diploma of Beauty Therapy may lead to a long and rewarding experience in salon but it could also lead you to a career in beauty vlogging, training or salon franchise.
Nonetheless, when you’re pursuing higher education, you are choosing to invest in yourself – backing yourself is the best decision you can make. Have courage to choose a career you love, the rest will follow.
Along with hard work and dedication any opportunity you have always longed for very well could come your way!
