TMG> Why did you choose to become a beautician?
Oluwasanmi> When I started out, it was basically for my face but after my first training my love for it grew and I decided to go into it professionally.
TMG> What excites you most about the world of beauty?
Oluwasanmi> What excites me about the beauty world is makeup. You know, it’s so intriguing how a person can go from zero to a hundred. Also, new makeup products excite me a whole lot! I basically spread my new haul on my bed and sometimes sleep like that till the next day before packing them up!
TMG> What makes you happy as a beautician?
Oluwasanmi> Positive reviews from my clients. Referrals are also a sign that I’m doing something right and that feeling is satisfying.
TMG> What three words would you use to describe yourself while working on a customer?
Oluwasanmi> hmmm…… Three words. . . okay, AT MY BEST!
TMG> What is your philosophy towards work?
Oluwasanmi> Work now, play later. Pay now, play later.
Basically, work now while you still can and there’s nothing wrong with rewarding yourself.
TMG> What was your career path? How did you get from being a Banker to a Beautician?
Oluwasanmi> I plan on practising what I’m studying (Agricultural economics) in school. Having one source of income is not wise and not enough. So there’s nothing wrong with being a farmer and a makeup artist.
TMG> What motivates you most about the business?
Oluwasanmi> PROGRESS! Not being where I used to be is enough motivation, having in mind there’s a goal to attain. My thirst to be a better business person is what drives me.
TMG> How many employees report to you and how efficient are they?
Oluwasanmi> For now, I work alone because my business is still growing. Sometimes I get really tired and can’t respond to messages or edit pictures. I just trust God for strength.

Oluwasanmi> If it’s something I can handle, I treat it with utmost professionalism but if it’s not a situation I can handle, I seek help from another professional.
TMG> What do you do to stay educated about new trends?
Oluwasanmi> Thank God for social media- I watch tutorial videos, snippets on Insta stories, YouTube has also been of help. I read online too and I have intelligent conversations with other professionals.
TMG> What are your challenges and how do you intend to handle them?
Oluwasanmi> – Funds basically. I plan on working on myself more so I can review my prices and save more.
TMG> What makes your work more unique than others?
Oluwasanmi> Hmm…. Feyisoge is different. Right from the point I wanted a name, I wanted something different and I got the name. I learnt from four people and I’ve been able to combine all I’ve been taught to come up with something different.
