What is my plan? | Maskcara: The Business

I recently had someone ask me what my business plan is as it relates to Maskcara. And I'm seriously happy to have been asked, because of course I have something to say about that!

Let me start this by saying... I am the world's biggest skeptic. If you know anything about Energy Profiling, I am a 4/2 - which means I'm very much a realist, but also very much a planner. It's in my nature to see the flaws in things and be very cautious when moving forward. I NEVER dive into something without having researched and picked apart all the pros and cons.

In early 2017, I began traveling a lot with my husband and every time I would pack I noticed that I was consciously thinking of what I could do without for a few days because I wanted to condense my travel makeup bag. It was during this time that I happened to stumble on Maskcara.

I concluded that this has to be the best makeup for traveling because your WHOLE routine can fit into one compact. It was a dream come true for me!

We all know that video is king when it comes to marketing your business. Nearly every social media platform has algorithms in place that are strongly influenced by the use of video, so you should be using it.

And we also have these handy smartphones on us nearly everywhere we go that happen to be incredible at making videos, given you have a little knowledge as to how to do it.

I was first presented with the opportunity to join Maskcara in January, like the day after it was opened for direct sales. 

But I hesitated...

Financial Failure on the Path to Success

When I met my husband at age 18, we pretty much were inseparable from that point on. After getting married, we did what a lot of married couples do; got excited about our dual income household, not to mention we lived somewhere with ridiculously cheap rent and my husband’s new job was a significant raise from what he had been making, so we felt and acted like we hit the lottery.

It is not uncommon for a woman in her mid-twenties to have several children and be planning to have more in the coming years. Despite whether or not it is anyone’s business, a woman age 23+ that is married will be asked, sometimes frequently, when she is going to have children.

We also live in a time where speaking out about infertility is becoming increasingly more common.

But one group of women that aren’t speaking out much yet are the ones that make a choice not to have children.

Actions Speak Louder: Being Genuinely Supportive in a Social Media Driven Society

We live in a society driven by social media in almost every way, shape, and form. And somehow, it’s become the norm to use these tools to show our sincere support for others. Convenience. We’re after the convenience of it.
