I'm Maggie, and I originally hail from the charming town of Whitefish, Montana. However, in 2001, my parents, siblings and I relocated to the beautiful Castle Rock, Colorado. I proudly graduated from CVHS in 2016, marking the start of my journey in the beauty industry. In 2021, I tied the knot with my wonderful husband, a Colorado native who works in HVAC. Our love story blossomed, and at the beginning of 2023, we joyfully embraced parenthood. I'm a bit of a homebody at heart, with a deep love for books, art, music, and, of course, skincare. In addition to our precious baby, our home is filled with the love of two fur babies. πŸ‘πŸ“šπŸŽ¨πŸŽΆπŸ‘ΆπŸΎ

Novum Skin emerged as a passion project born from the depths of my cosmetology school journey. Initially conceived as an assignment, the brand I created resonated deeply with me, and I clung to that love. When motherhood beckoned with the arrival of my son, I faced the daunting challenge of achieving a harmonious work-life balance in my current job. It was then that my husband, a steadfast supporter, encouraged me to take a leap of faith. And so, in August 2023, Novum Skin officially came into being, a testament to my dedication and the pursuit of my beauty industry dreams. πŸ’„πŸŒŸβœ¨

Certainly, here's the description of your ideal customer in the first person:

I'm thrilled to serve a unique clientele at Novum Skin. My ideal customer is someone who shares my passion for intelligent, science-driven skincare that goes hand-in-hand with a commitment to minimizing their impact on the environment. These clients are special because they seek more than just surface-level beauty; they're on a journey to age gracefully through the power of science-backed skincare.

My ideal customer is someone who appreciates the value of advanced skincare solutions. They understand that science can unlock the secrets to long-lasting, radiant skin, and they're eager to explore these possibilities.

Furthermore, they are environmentally conscious individuals who are mindful of the choices they make. They appreciate that the skincare products I offer are certified organic, all-natural, cruelty-free, and vegan, aligning perfectly with their eco-friendly values.

Authenticity matters to them as well. They see skincare as a way to enhance their natural beauty, allowing them to be their true selves. As a solo esthetician, I'm able to provide them with a personalized experience that resonates with their desire for authenticity and individualized care.

In essence, my ideal customers are not just clients; they are like-minded individuals on a quest for intelligent, science-driven skincare that harmonizes with their environmental consciousness and a desire to be their authentic, best selves. It's a privilege to serve such a discerning and thoughtful clientele at Novum Skin.

At Novum Skin, I believe in the power of collaboration with like-minded professionals who share our dedication to client well-being and beauty. Here are some potential referral partners:

Makeup Artists: Partnering with makeup artists is a fantastic idea. They can complement my skincare treatments by recommending or providing makeup services that align with the post-treatment skincare routines I offer, ensuring that clients' skin remains healthy and radiant while looking its best.

Dermatologists: Dermatologists can be invaluable referral partners. They can refer patients to me for aesthetic services that complement their medical treatments, and I, in turn, can refer clients to dermatologists when specialized medical attention is needed, creating a mutually beneficial relationship.

Massage Therapists: Collaborating with massage therapists offers a holistic wellness approach. Clients often appreciate combining skincare treatments with massages for a comprehensive self-care experience. By referring clients to massage therapists and vice versa, we can create wellness packages that enhance overall client well-being.

Chiropractors: Chiropractors may seem unrelated, but they can promote overall wellness, reducing stress, which positively impacts skin health. By referring clients to each other, we offer holistic well-being solutions, enhancing the overall health and relaxation of our clients.

IV Clinics: IV clinics offer health and wellness treatments that complement my skincare services. I can recommend IV therapies to clients after skincare treatments to boost skin health or overall well-being, and they can refer clients to me to enhance the effectiveness of skincare treatments.

Nutrition Counselors: Nutrition is fundamental to healthy skin. Partnering with nutrition counselors allows us to refer clients for tailored dietary guidance, optimizing their skin health and the effectiveness of our treatments.

Photographers: Photographers specializing in beauty and skincare photography help us capture and showcase the stunning results of our treatments. This not only documents progress but also serves as a powerful marketing tool.

Wedding Industry Related Businesses: Collaborating with wedding planners, bridal boutiques, or hair and makeup artists is an excellent way to reach clients preparing for special events, such as weddings. They can refer clients to us for skincare treatments to look their best on their big day, and we can refer our clients to them for related services.

In each case, these partnerships are rooted in trust and a shared commitment to client well-being. Together, we create a network of support and services that enhance our clients' holistic beauty and well-being journey while extending our reach to potential clients who may not yet be familiar with Novum Skin.

As a Solo Esthetician I am not looking for employees.

Starting my own esthetics studio has been an incredibly rewarding journey, filled with several aspects I've truly enjoyed:

  1. Freedom: The sense of freedom that comes with owning my esthetics studio is unparalleled. I have the autonomy to make decisions that align with my vision and passion. It allows me to create a unique and personalized experience for my clients, tailoring my services and product offerings to exactly what I believe in.

  2. Alignment with Passion: I wake up every day excited to go to work because I'm doing something I'm truly passionate about. Being able to pursue a career that aligns with my interests and talents has brought a profound sense of fulfillment to my professional life.

  3. Work-Life Balance: One of the most precious benefits of owning my own studio is the improved work-life balance it affords me. I can structure my schedule to be present for my husband and newborn son, cherishing those important family moments without compromising on my career aspirations.

  4. Living My Vision: Owning my esthetics studio has allowed me to bring my vision of a holistic and personalized skincare experience to life. I can introduce products and services that I genuinely believe in, prioritizing the well-being and satisfaction of my clients.

In summary, the journey of starting my own esthetics studio has granted me the freedom to follow my passion, make my own professional choices, maintain a healthy work-life balance, and live out my vision for a skincare business. These aspects have made every day a joyous and fulfilling adventure in my career.

Undoubtedly, while starting my own esthetics studio has been incredibly rewarding, it hasn't been without its challenges. Here are some of the toughest aspects I've encountered:

  1. Navigating Regulations and Compliance: Beyond the creative and esthetic aspects of my business, there's a complex web of regulations and legal requirements to navigate. Ensuring that my studio is fully licensed and compliant with local regulations has been a significant and sometimes overwhelming challenge.

  2. Client Acquisition and Exposure: Perhaps the most daunting challenge has been getting exposure and building a client base. In a competitive industry, standing out and attracting clients can be tough. I've learned that it takes time and persistent effort to establish a reputation and a steady flow of clients.

To overcome this, I'm actively seeking opportunities to network with other businesses in the area. Collaborations and partnerships with like-minded professionals can help spread the word about my studio and ultimately fill my appointment book. Building relationships and gaining referrals from other businesses can be a powerful way to overcome the hurdle of client acquisition.

Despite these challenges, the passion and dedication I have for my esthetics studio drive me to push through the difficulties and continue building a thriving business that aligns with my vision.
