Join the NCEA for its Orlando prep class June 1-3
A prep class is an interactive study group that allows the candidate to further their knowledge development. It's an excellent way to "brush-up" on skills and develop a nurturing mentor relationship with your instructor. It also provides more interaction than if you've only used the self-study method.
The discounted prep class fee of $125 has even been extended up until June 1. To register, please call 800-335-7469.

Esthetic professionals get NCEA certified
In many professions where there is licensure the individual not only gets a state license, but they also take a national exam and receive national certification. Why? It enhances their earning potential, it shows they are committed to their career and profession, and it demonstrates that they have met a higher set of standards. As estheticians we don't want to be considered trades people. We want to be viewed and respected as professionals.
In many states we are not required to take continuing education and the level of basic training is minimal. That is not a typical trait of a professional industry. If we really want to achieve status as being accepted as a professional we need to be proactive and take responsibility for our future.

4 ways to calculate client value and grow your business
Not all clients hold the same potential value when it comes to your business. So it's important to consider why you might be handling a client you only see twice a year, the same way you are handling a client that comes in every week.
