It’s Never too Late for a Second Chance
Renée Brown took the chance to pursue a new career, and she never looked back. For many years, Renée enjoyed the stability that a state job in California provided her and her family. She supported her family as a law enforcement parole agent. She chose to enroll in beauty school to pursue something she’d always wanted. She enjoys helping others, and what better way than making people look and feel beautiful.
At Salon Success Academy in Redlands, CA, Renée enrolled in the esthetics program because of its convenient location. From the moment she walked in the door, she was embraced into the positive learning environment. The most challenging part of going back to school was being away from her family, especially her grandson who was used to seeing her every day. It was also difficult relating to the younger generation of students who were in her classes. The staff and instructors, including Miss. Julia and Miss. Lisa, made the experience much easier by encouraging her along the way.
Renée is passion driven, which is why she’s always so eager to help others. When a friend came to her with persistent eczema, she wanted to find a natural remedy. Renee always loved mixing and creating something new, even as a young girl. Renée tested her formula and took before and after photos. Now, she’s found the right concoction that brings relief to the skin condition, even in very extreme cases. With the help of her daughter, who is a chemist, she is now in search for a lab where it can be produced. She’s even being featured on a 30 minute radio segment. Renée says that “good skin is in” and that her product can help everyone achieve that.
In as little as 4 months, Renée graduated from the esthetics program on May 7, 2015. She hopes to get experience working in a salon, but eventually, she’d love to open a business of her own and teach others. Her best advice to others is to visualize what you want in life and stand by it. She said to “deliver each service with love.” You’ll never doubt yourself if it comes from the heart.
