leadership Aug 11, 2019

We’ve all heard the term “born leaders,” but the reality is, everyone needs to be a leader to steer their life in the direction of the reality they seek to create. 


Because you are the leader of your life. 

And when it comes to your business, it doesn’t matter whether you work as a solo aesthetician or you’re leading a team, successful businesses only become so when there’s someone effectively steering the ship and keeping it on course toward its desired destination. 

But what if you’re not someone that considers themselves a “born leader”? 

Or what if you’re moving from being a leader of one to a leader of many?

As my guest on this episode of Spa Marketing Made Easy explains, everyone has the capability to be a great leader; it’s simply a matter of owning your personal leadership and crafting a Growth Plan to help you get there. 

His name is Njeru Nthigah, and he’s a speaker, mentor, and the founder of The Leaders University, and if you’ve never heard Njeru before today, you’re in for a treat because he is the American Dream personified and is an unending source of Inspiration and motivation. 

( No lie, we had about 20 of his quotes to pull from with this episode because he is chock full of immediate wisdom-packed takeaways!)

Together, we discuss why it’s critical to own your personal leadership no matter what your title as well as how to begin doing the work to refine and grow your leadership skills. 

If you’ve ever had your sights set on “more” for your life or your business...more time, more freedom, more money, more flexibility, more opportunity…

It’s all possible, but becoming a better leader from the inside out is what’s going to help you make those things you seek your reality.
