5 reasons you SHOULDN’T start a skincare business!

by | Feb 24, 2023 | Business | 0 comments

Have you ever wondered if you should start a skincare business? Here are 5 situations where maybe you shouldn’t… 🙅‍♀️

1️⃣ You’re happy with your current job.

If this is you, that’s great! But if you’re unhappy or looking for more, starting a skincare business as a side hustle is a great way to start earning extra income.

And hopefully lead you to ditch the day job in the future!

2️⃣ You don’t want to put in the effort.

Newsflash – starting any business takes time, effort and money. So you need to be prepared for that – but it’ll be worth it I promise!

3️⃣ You think it’s your chance to get-rich-quick.

Unlike what the Daily Mail would have us believe, it’s highly unlikely you’ll become an overnight millionare.

You can become a millionaire, but it’s going to take time!

4️⃣ You’re not feeling a strong calling to it.

Most people start their skincare or beauty brand as it’s something they’ve been dreaming about for a while.

That’s not to say you won’t be successful if you don’t, but it helps you get through the tough times when you have a strong ‘WHY’ for starting in the first place (and it’s not to get rich quick!).

5️⃣ You’re not willing to learn.

If you think you know everything and aren’t interested in learning more, then starting a skincare business isn’t for you.

You’re going to learn so much about yourself, about starting a skincare business, and you need to be able to see mistakes as learning opportunities.

Let me know below if this resonates with you!

If you’re ready to start your dream skincare business, I’d love to help with my 12-week Label Launchpad program.
