We help men and women transform themselves and their careers.

For many of us during these past 12 months, pressing pause has been vital in getting through the uncertain times we’ve collectively had to face. We’ve stayed home where we can, and should all be proud of taking a step back to ensure the safety of those around us.

However, if you’re anything like us at KLMA, the thought of normality creeping closer once more has us raring to get going once again. We can’t wait for the feeling of a warm hug with our loved ones, the taste of that first meal out in a restaurant, that rush of heat when we step off an aeroplane in a hot country, and, most of all, the opportunity to get our beauty biz back up and running! Fresh starts is what we’re all about.

We’ve been putting a lot of thought into what the world will look like when this is hopefully all over. It’s natural to assume things will be very different on the other side of the pandemic. That’s why it’s so important to plan ahead and make the most of the upcoming year!

Whether you’re looking to start your career in the beauty industry, or are just looking to get back up and running once more, here are a few reasons to get back into action as soon as possible…

Make the most of the 2021 Boom

Believe us when we say, the demand for beauty services this year is going to be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. We’ll all be leaving this lockdown with split ends, makeup-less faces, and eyebrows and lashes in desperate need of taming. Not only that, but we’ve also realised just how much we took all our old beauty services for granted…

If you’re looking to start a career as an MUA, hairstyling, or lash technician, there really will be no better time. With plenty of clients to go round, why not use this opportunity to get trained and begin your career in the busiest year beauty will ever see!

With festivals, weddings, and parties also hopefully on the horizon, there will be a huge backlog of events that will be playing out over the upcoming months. Plenty of opportunities to put your new skills into practice!

If you want to make the most of the post-pandemic boom, you can get your certified MUA qualification by enrolling on one of our Pro MUA courses at KLMA. Find out more about what’s available here!

Things That Get Scheduled… Get Done!

We’re all guilty of saying oh, I’ll just start tomorrow. But seriously guys, you must know by now that tomorrow never comes! All we’ll ever have is TODAY.

In a year’s time, future you will be so grateful that you started when you did. So it really is time to start putting things off and move confidently in the direction of your dreams. Nothing exciting ever happens within your comfort zone!

Doing something actionable, like booking onto a course or learning online, sets your growth in place. There’s no more putting it off, or making excuses. Things that get scheduled get done!

The Market has Changed – Make Sure You’re Ahead of the Game

The effects of the pandemic have meant that, as people, we’ve all had to grow and adapt. Naturally, the way we live our life from day to day has changed and this can effect your business in the long run.

Using this time to get ahead of the game will make sure you’re up to date with new trends in things like social media and digital marketing. The switch to online has been huge this past year, and your business model needs to reflect this!

At KLMA, we are currently running an online coaching-based business module to help you level-up in these areas. With everything from finances to digital marketing, our Glambitious course is definitely something you should consider over the next few weeks if you’re looking to get your business ready for the return to life after lockdown.

Life is Short & Unpredictable – Do What Makes You Happiest!

If there is one thing we’ve learnt from the last year, it’s not to take ANYTHING for granted. It’s so important for us to enjoy each day, as we never know when the things we love could be taken away from us.

If you feel unhappy in your day to day life or unfulfilled by your career, ask yourself – is it time to make a change?

The only thing holding you back is the fear of life outside your comfort zone – and trust us when we say that’s where the magic happens. We’ve seen so many people turn their life around by walking through the KLMA Academy doors, and who’s to say you won’t be next!
