Real Beauty Bosses

By Jordan Kee and Katie White
The big question is this...
How does a beauty professional who owns their own beauty business and wants to specialize in their service actually charge what they're worth while avoiding attracting clients that are a pain in the butt? How do they become the go-to expert in their space and get their creativity and ideas shared with others so they can build their following without being stuck behind the chair or in their salon?
Those are the questions and this podcast for female entrepreneurs has the answers. Meet Jordan and Katie and Welcome to the REAL BEAUTY BOSSES PODCAST!
