What is it that you love about being a franchisee?
As well as learning something new every day, the most exciting part is watching your business grow to the point that you need additional lasers and equipment, and more staff just to accommodate the volume of clients you have!
What advice would you give others choosing to follow you into the aesthetic industry?
Immerse yourself in learning and keeping up to date with research and treatment information. Look for a company to work in that offers career progression and continual professional development. Have a clear direction of where you would like to be in one year, and a long-term plan in place for yourself also.
What is the best part about working with Australian Skin Clinics?
Working with a group of driven professionals who are task focused in a friendly team-oriented work environment. This stems from our CEO who works tirelessly to empower her staff to be the best they can be as we continue to expand quickly throughout Australia. And, the consistent and high level training available.
What types of roles did you do before becoming a franchisee?
Once of my earlier roles was working with Myer doing their management training program. I started studying Beauty Therapy to gain better understanding of the skin, then went on to be the Queensland Trainer for Clinique. Once I gained my Beauty Therapy Diploma I worked with a plastic surgeon consulting for dermal therapy and IPL treatments. I then gained my laser safety certificate with Queensland Radiation Health, and laser safety officer’s certificate. After working for a number of cosmetic clinics over the years, I secured a role as a laser technician with Australian Skin Clinics at our original clinic before becoming our first franchisee.
However, whilst I have an extensive knowledge of the industry, an aesthetic background is not a requirement in order to become a franchisee. The Australian Skin Clinics model requires a strategy that utilises a franchisees management skills and passion to drive sales in the business through active engagement and a passion for greatness.
