This picture proves just how long I've been a freelance hair and makeup artist.
What it doesnt show is the first hotel I lived at in Miami South Beach with cockroaches we became so familiar with that we named them Burt and Ernie. It doesn't show all the hours of free work or eating quacamole for dinner because an avocado cost $.60. The picture does capture the smile on my face and joy I felt working . Decades have past but the joy I feel hasn't changed.
I highly recommend working really hard at whatever you love doing. Money and success will be the outcome but pick something you would do for free.
I still smile everytime I eat quacamole but I'm happy success has freed me from cockroaches.
