Hello, my name is Kiara and I am currently twenty-one years old. I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Guam and I currently reside in Sunny California.
I have always had a dream to become a business owner, but I was never too sure what kind of business I actually wanted to own. When the COVID-19 pandemic came along, it forced my full time job to close down, completely diminishing my only source of income. I have never been unemployed for more than a few weeks since I was sixteen years old, so this was a huge financial burden to me - I didn't know what to do!
I sat around my apartment and tried to figure out a solution. Finding a temporary job in the outside world was not an option due to my weak immune system, and "work at home" jobs don't really exist without some sort of experience.
Then it hit me - I have been working in the spa industry for over two years and in those years, I have been surrounded by all different types of skin and body care. Unbeknownst to myself, I had been learning how to build a business in the spa industry! All I had to do was learn how to create the products I sold and loved so much and learn more about the benefits of each ingredient added into them. And so the research began.
While I am currently doing this for fun and a little bit of income in the midst of this pandemic, my hopes are to eventually have my business take over my full time job in the outside world.
