Owner of The Zen Room
Licensed Esthetician, Influencer, Business Owner
We had the opportunity of stopping by Iesha’s shop, The Zen Room, in Charlotte, NC and having a deep conversation regarding her journey on becoming a Licensed Esthetician, creating content, and taking the leap into becoming a business owner.
She recalled that nine days into a ten day training at a new job, the world shut down and she had to pivot like many new business owners had to do at the height of the pandemic. A big part of the conversation is what she learned as she continued to elevate her game until she inevitably got her own salon.
“It went from 1 client a day, to two, to three, until next thing you know I was fully booked all month. It has definitely moved fast.” - Iesha
Later in the conversation she spoke about her inspiration from the feeling of Zen for her clients, growing her marketing strategy, and some of the tough times she had to face before getting to the place she is now. She even dives into making the leap from a nursing career into Esthetics while also having to manage her role in her family and as a mother.
“Being an entrepreneur, something will be neglected. You have to pick and choose where your time goes.” - Iesha
We even squeezed in some time to ask her what she likes to do for fun. Her fun to-do list included mimosas, brunching, and going to The Babe Cave or Stats with her girls.
“I like mimosas. Brunch. You know I like to have fun and go to certain spots with my girls…” Iesha
“Don’t let not having the money, the time, or anything like that hold you back. Make the time. I say don’t give up..” - Iesha
