It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day, but it’s important to stop ask: what’s the end goal? Knowing where you are trying to go is step one in getting there and so we’ve asked some folks we admire to tell us their end goal and where they want to be by the end of their careers.

Janelle Orion | Marketing Therapist

My end goal is to live a life well-lived. Which means I wanted to create a career where I could work AND live and not wait until retirement to ‘live my life.’ With that in mind I started my own business 5 years ago with lifestyle design at the forefront (Thank you Tim Ferris and the 4 Hour Work Week). I don’t plan to ever retire, As I slow down, I plan to keeping working, but just the hours I want on the things I want, for the rest of my life. Read more>>

Marisa Factor | Hair & Makeup Artist

There are so many directions to go in this industry and so much competition, I find it easier and easier to compare my work to that of others and feel inadequate as I observe influencers (most of them not even licensed cosmetologists!) blow up on social media. Ever since I started beauty school, my goal was never to stop behind the chair; I always wanted my career to transcend past that into a more creative space, and I definitely feel the most in my element when I’m working freelance jobs that allow me to collaborate with other artists. I love being on sets and backstage. I would ultimately love for my two worlds, professional dance and HMUA, to collide and have had a long time dream of working in a theatre. By the end of my career I would love to be represented by an agency so that I can stay based in Colorado but have bigger opportunities that include travel. Working fashion week in New York in 2019 had me feeling like I was living my dream life for the weekend and that was really exciting and motivating. Read more>>
