We had the good fortune of connecting with Sara Studzinski and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sara, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Definitely a strong will to keep going through the good and the bad. When I make up my mind that I’m going to do something, nothing can really get in my way. Part of that may have to do with an anxious perfectionism, which is actually something I struggle to find balance with in my life, but I think the majority of it is blind optimism and telling myself it’s meant to work out. I like to think the Law of Attraction was in play when I started my path to becoming a small business owner..
What should our readers know about your business?
My business is a small one with a big purpose: to be in service to others and to help them feel good about themselves. It was not easy getting to this point in my career and even today, it’s not easy being a service provider. I just want to use this space to say that the service industry is what keeps the world running. For decades people in the service industry have been looked down upon as if our trades take less knowledge and talent than a corporate desk job, when that’s so far from the truth. We are an undervalued industry and I’m so proud of my fellow service providers in the Denver area slaying the market, raising their prices to reflect their value, and practicing the self care that is needed to perform jobs like these. As far as my business goes, I don’t see myself set apart from the rest of the Denver beauty industry. We all work together as one beating heart.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
This is funny because my FULLY VACCINATED best friend is coming to visit me next week. It’s tough with the pandemic because there is a lot more we would do in the city, but we will probably do dinner at Linger and Root Down, two of my absolute favorite restaurants, and do a few hikes and drives through the mountains.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’ll dedicate this to the three people that helped me the most through my journey this far: my husband, my mom, and my best friend, Anna. Without, not only their unwavering support, but their ability to help me see the light in the darkness, I would be lost.
