Motives Cosmetics Business & Beauty Academy in Stamford, Connecticut

This past weekend’s Motives Business & Beauty Academy event in Stamford, Connecticut was such a massive learning opportunity for our UFOs! The MBBA was a comprehensive training designed to help these beauty pros elevate their game and experience even more success. Here they had the opportunity to learn from the best while also working with new sales aids and other resources that ultimately helped everyone gain a better understanding of the business and science behind the beauty industry.

I’d like to extend a special thank you to Kim Ashley, Lisa Martin, and the Motives Team for hosting this tremendous event. Loren and I were blessed to be a part of this training and had the opportunity to shoot a few fun videos with the MBBA crew. I’ve also collected some great images from Instagram that highlight this event – a special thanks to all our photo contributors from Instagram: @faceyourforever, @jewelwacker, @lisamartinlive, @jaxxmakeup, @makeuponmove, @emcarr91, @nick_braveheart, @thankagirl, @no_il_lou_sions, @pinkshampu.

Enjoy the images and videos from the first-ever Motives Business & Beauty Academy! So far we’ve received some excellent feedback from the event, which I’ve also included below. If you were there feel free to email me or leave a comment – because we love hearing about your experiences and what you learned. Thanks to everyone to helped make the MBBA such a powerful learning experience!

Keep Growing!
