Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Guidry.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I knew I always wanted to be in the beauty industry, I wanted to be a licensed professional, but I knew that I didn’t want to do hair. So, I thought about a service I paid for consistently, and that was getting my nails done. I took a leap and enrolled in nail school, having no experience whatsoever. Realizing how miserable I was at my corporate job, I walked away from corporate America on my 10 year anniversary with the company, stepped out on faith, and trusted that I was making the right decision. And I definitely made the right decision!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Now, that I have loyal clients, the road has been fairly smooth for me. And that’s a blessing! The main struggle I had was having to choose to leave my well paying corporate job to pursue my dream. But with hard work, consistency, and faith… you can do anything and have everything that your heart desires.
Please tell us about Nails By Leaux.
I specialize in acrylic nails. I am also an art school graduate, so my creative and artistic approach to every set of nails that I do allows me to execute whatever each client requests. What sets me apart from others is my willingness to go above and beyond for my clients and my always positive attitude with them. The bond that I build with each young lady that sits in my chair is unbreakable.
Were there people and/or experiences you had in your childhood that you feel laid the foundation for your success?
I was always an outgoing, bubbly, friendly, artsy individual! Never wanting to follow rules, always wanting to do things my way! Freedom is everything for me!
