Henna is FUN: hobby becomes income

Sunday, February 07, 2010



So, I've finally decided to get over my fear of charging friends and family for my henna skills. I designed and ordered business cards and a vinyl sign. And I've already gotten my 1st paying customer. This weekend I've done two henna sessions, and have a 3rd scheduled for next week. When my business cards arrive, I'll hand out a dozen or so out to these recent client w/ an incentive promise of free henna/re-touch for every paying client they refer to me.

After all, my clients are walking billboards, right?

Now I'm putting together a business plan and gathering supplies and necessities. My next goal is to get my design pix printed so that I can create "festival--fast designs" poster boards...

Huge thanks to SP henna friends, Elaine and Monica, for their priceless advice for getting started. Hope someday to receive henna form their capable hands & hearts. luv ya!!!

BTW, you can see my designs on facebook, search for: HandZenFeetHenna

    Thanks for all the good wishes! I'm excited to finally be doing something that I can schedule around my life, and something that makes me happy, too. I love seeing the henna reveal in the after-pix.

Now I gotta get the lead out and find some festivals. There's ALWAYS something going on in Hawaii, LOL!

Heaping Henna Blessings and huge MAHALO to my Spark Ohana!

luv, Tess
