Danielle Friesen’s Story
Before deciding to become a nail technician I was a stay at home Mom of two little girls. My husband had worked out of town for the past eight years and with his job slowing down he came home. Having my nails done was something I loved but had to let go of as it was not a necessity. I felt odd without nails for the first time in years. I was trying to think of something I could do to boost our financial situation a bit and I thought of becoming a nail technician. I love art and as a bonus I could use the products to do my own nails.
When I looked into schooling I found that there were no available courses in my area. I would not have been able to leave home for the time it took to complete a course. I looked online and found Mirage Spa Education. This seemed to be the best rout to take so I enrolled into the online Fully Qualified Nail Technician course. I loved how convenient the course was. I was able to work on it when I could and take the time I needed. The curriculum was interesting and thorough. I really appreciate how much they stressed proper cleaning and sterilization. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The videos critiquing my work were so helpful! Everything was covered so I was fully prepared to start my career once I finished the course.
After completing the course I opened my business (Trabbit Nail Creations) in a room I rented out of a quaint little flower shop. Building clientele in a small town, that already had a few nail technicians, was a bit of a slow start. I let my work speak for itself, advertised a few times online, relied heavily on word of mouth and my clientele began to grow. The slow progression of clients allowed me to perfect my work, speed and customer service. I have had my business for over a year now and am quite busy and love it!
It’s so important for me to be able to set my own hours. This is a perfect job for me and I am so grateful to have found a course that covered everything I needed to know. Mirage Spa Education is a fantastic way to get an online education!
