Today we’d like to introduce you to Kirstie Suarez.
Hi Kirstie, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Hello, thank you so much for having me. I’m a licensed Aesthetician in Orange, CA. My passion for skincare started in 2010 when I received my first facial and started taking care of my skin. I decided to obtain my esthetics license in 2016 with the idea to open my own business one day. I opened my business with no clients three months after obtaining my esthetics license. I was able to rent my first office that was 140 square feet. After a few months my business started to grow, I was receiving so many new clients and after ten months in business I had to relocate to a bigger office that’s now 750 square feet. As my business continues to grow, I continue my education by taking extra classes and staying up to date with new treatments.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
My biggest challenge was the first year of Covid, Covid affected me during my second year in business. My type of business is personal care and I was forced to close for almost a year. My business did not qualify for any help during the pandemic. I was able to stay in business by offering specials during the time I was close and selling facial at home kits for clients to use at home. I definitely did learn it’s always good to be prepared for anything. Looking back I can definitely say it hasn’t been easy, but it’s worth it.
As you know, we’re big fans of My Glow Esthetics. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
My glow esthetics specializes in skincare. I don’t consider any of our services as “spa” I do more of skin revision. We focus on helping clients achieve their skincare goals, from helping clear acne, scars or treat sun damage skin. The most popular service I offer is called Hydro-Luxx facial. Our Hydro-luxx facial flushes impurities while exfoliating and removing dead cells. It’s a perfect treatment to reset the skin, hydrate and while giving you a glow. My clients are obsessed with the Hydro-Luxx facial and The DMK products by Danné Montague-King for their home skincare routine. I’ve been using DMK for almost four years and I’ve seen amazing results.
What does success mean to you?
I define success by how happy you are in life with your achievements in your professional or personal life. But, I do believe You can’t be fully successful if you aren’t working as hard as how big you’re dreaming.
