What Past Participants Have Said
Hi Rana! I just wanted to reach out again and thank you for sharing your love for the aesthetics field with all of us this weekend. I’ve felt very disconnected with working in a hospital as a nurse since I started in 2016. For the first time in my career, I have been excited to move forward and invest in further education to create a happy life for myself and for my patients! I’m laughing thinking about your stories about putting firecrackers under people’s asses and I must say…this course was my firecracker. I feel energized and ready to make the transition into the field.Keep up the AMAZING work that you’re doing. I vow to practice safely, stay connected with my fellow confidence boosters, and spread the word about the wonderful things that you preach to maintain the integrity of the field. I can’t wait to see you soon. I'll most definitely be in touch! Best, Ashley
Rana, First, I want to say thank you for sharing all your amazing knowledge with us last Friday! The class was a great overview of the business and I definitely feel more confident as I start my career in aesthetics after your seminar! I truly enjoyed hearing Amie, Cassie, and your stories about your journeys in this field. I appreciated the discussion on saying no to treatments you don’t feel are appropriate. I also feel more confident from a safety perspective, which was my goal in taking this course. Thank you so much and I hope you have a great week!!Thanks!! Erin
Thank you Rana. It was the best day ever. Was not expecting to have my whole outlook on aesthetics shift to another dimension. Confidence boosters is a phrase that hits the nail on the head of what it's all about. And yes, we do deserve it! Your passion, knowledge, and experience has manifested into wisdom that you ever so kindly shared with us all! You are such a light in this world and am very honored to have gotten the opportunity to spend the day together. Joy to you, Vicki
