If Not Now Then When?: Why Now Is The Perfect Time To Re-skill And Get Into The Beauty Industry.

Amongst all the uncertainties the upheaval of the last 12 months have brought about, one thing seems perfectly clear… the way we work may never be the same again.


Time spent in lockdown, working from home or (unfortunately for many) suddenly not working at all, has created a massive and very consequential shift in the way we view our work-life balance.  The challenges we have been forced to face have created some sort of universal epiphany about how and why we work and if we are prepared to go back to a 9-to-5, office centric work lifestyle.


A global survey conducted by workplace messaging app company, Slack, found that 72% of workers surveyed now prefer a hybrid approach to working - with a mix of both office and work-from-home options the perceived key to less stress, less anxiety and an overall sense of life balance and satisfaction.


Why Now is  the Perfect Time:

There are many advantages that working from home can bring - saving time and money lost on commuting and buying those $15 sandwiches just a couple of immediate gains.  But, more so, less stress and more leisure time spent with family and friends are also noteworthy perks.


Right now, as the ‘work-from-home’ trend continues to grow, so to is the inclination for consumers to embrace the notion of utilising services offered from a home setting rather than the traditional shopfront store; making this the perfect time to turn your hobby or passion into a money making side-hustle you can run from the comfort of your own home.


Fostering personal growth and development as well as taking advantage of, what might be a less than ideal situation if you are currently short of work;  learning a new skill that can generate extra income is a clever move.
