I am Lanarah, Accessmatized's newest intern. I have been having a wonderful time with Ms. Takia this summer. I have been behind the scenes of her business seeing how she runs things from day to day.
This has truly been an enriching experience. From updating booking information to taking inventory, I have done a little bit of everything. I even have my own project! I have been given the opportunity to see how an entrepreneur gets life done.
Coming into this experience I had an assumption of what I would be doing. All I was told was that I would be working with a makeup artist. I thought everything was all lashes and the art of blending foundation.
I didn't know that when entrepreneurs say they make their own hours it wasn't 3 hour days but 13 hour shifts. I didn't know all the logistics of owning your own business and the paperwork behind it. I never thought about all the countless hours of doing things you are not fond of just to experience the thing you do love.
This summer has taught me a lot . I've been privileged enough to catch a glimpse of how Accessmatized is run. It has opened my eyes to something completely new this year . Something I knew nothing about.
