Meet Our Professional Homegirl of the Week: Kaie aka Born Beautician
1. Social media :
2. What do you do and what does a normal day looks like for you?
I am a Professional hair artist and a salon owner. A day of work for me is normally a fully booked day. I try my best not to overbook and to give each and every client my undivided attention and execute whatever look they desire. I love the feeling and the look on my client's face after they see their new look/transformation. It’s definitely a satisfying feeling and I am literally getting paid to do what I love and I enjoy and respect the process along the way.
3. What motivates you?
My passion motivates me. To see how far and how long it took to get to where I am now, motivates me to do more and push further.
4. How do you balance with your career, side hustles, and your social life?
I am not great at balancing, however, I do take time for myself. I try my best to do spa treatments at least once a month, travel at least once a year, and I make sure to spend all holidays with family and whatever extra time I can squeeze along the way. I meditate at least once a day and try to keep myself grounded throughout the day. I always cleanse my space when I feel like I'm a little off balance. My social life is tied to my career and I love going to networking events and meeting new people. I try my best to only attend events that I can learn and grow from.
My side hustle would be freelancing, working on set with other creative like minds from fashion week to red carpets. Whatever that keep my creative juices flowing. I balance them all by making sure to set a good schedule and never overbooking myself. I also let myself know that its ok to say NO to whatever that does not sit right with my spirit. I keep my personal life out of it and detached myself from it all at least once every 2 weeks.
5. What does Professional Homegirl mean to you?
Professional Homegirl to me means women uplifting women and sharing the knowledge and secrets of how and what keeps them (professional and successful women) going, it means helping the girls and woman who probably have no idea or need help on the journey towards success. Connecting and breaking the cycle, holding hands and climbing the ladder together, being a leader and using that to help others be leaders themselves.
6. What advice would you give to young women that want to pursue their dreams?
I would tell her to listen to that inner voice, pay attention to that gut feeling, listen to advice but make the final decision, create a vision board and dream big, stay grounded, find your truth and stick with it, Be you, take risk, stay true to who you are, be honest, show gratitude, stay positive, every negative has a lesson to be learned, find your balance, DO NOT GIVE UP.
