The Business of Beauty & Aesthetics

Issue 6     READ HERE

Welcome to the latest edition of our Beaute by ABIC Journal, where we delve into the business of beauty and aesthetics. 

In this issue, we draw inspiration from successful Australian professionals who have not only mastered their craft, but have also created thriving businesses and enterprises from their passion. The Australian beauty landscape is awash with stories of visionaries, many of whom are valued ABIC members. These entrepreneurs embody the spirit of determination and a deep love for making people feel beautiful. 

This month's journal also explores the challenges of navigating an ever-evolving industry and the importance of adaptability. With new trends and technological advancements, staying ahead of the curve is vital. Successful entrepreneurs and business owners in the beauty sector are quick to embrace new techniques and technologies that enhance the services they offer.

While the journey of running a business can be challenging, it also offers abundant rewards. The true beauty of this industry lies in the positive impact it has on people's lives. Beyond financial gains, the joy of seeing clients' smiles and renewed confidence is truly fulfilling. In this issue, we draw inspiration from the words of successful Australian beauty and aesthetic professionals, reminding us that success in this industry requires dedication, adaptability, and commitment to excellence. 

On behalf of the ABIC Council, we hope you enjoy our latest Beaute by ABIC Journal.

An Industry United

Issue 5     READ HERE

It is both an exciting and challenging time in our industry at present. With a plethora of changes to our industry hitting us faster than Tesla could, I think we can all safely say that it has been a struggle to keep pace, both personally and professionally. 

We are hearing from so many of our members that are finding these changes challenging, perhaps more so than even throughout Covid, with so many obstacles that are out of our control. The current financial climate compounded by, in some cases, untimely and cost-limiting changes in workplace relations laws, coupled with new industry-specific regulations are making it more difficult than ever to be a business owner and even a sole trader. 

It's times such as these that we need to reach out for the most important support tool that we have at our disposal, connection, and accept that helping hand, that consoling presence, and at times, that voice of reason. 

We are so proud that the ABIC community is made up of strong, yet compassionate individuals that can seamlessly come together in times of need to share their experiences, knowledge, expertise and solutions to problems that we may never think of on our own. This issue is about the motivation and inspiration that we find when we come together and unite, not just as an industry, but as humans. 

On behalf of the ABIC Council, we hope you enjoy our latest Beaute by ABIC Journal.

From Uncertainty to Strength

Issue 1     READ HERE

These past two years of hardship and struggle have indeed tested us, but as I look to my industry colleagues and community what stands out the most, is their resilience in the face of uncertainty.

As we have emerged from one setback into another, rather than regression, I can see strength growing within the professionals of our field, innovation sprouting within our businesses, and unity flourishing within our community. 

It is for this reason that the only possible theme that is apt for our very first issue of the Beaute by ABIC Journal is "From Uncertainty to Strength".

In this issue, we hear stories from incredible industry peers that are overcoming adversity, proving to us all that we have the fortitude within us to persist and prevail.

We learn techniques from Mala McAlpin (ABIC Editor & Dermal Therapist) to strengthen our minds, conquer our inner fears and overcome our external challenges. 

We gain fascinating insight from Gay Wardle (Dermal Educator) and Yadira Galarza Cauchi (Beauty Journalist) about heat and inflammation, and the importance of understanding these vital processes for thorough skin analysis and consultation with your clients or patients.

And we discover strategies to increase our cashflow from Matt Williams (ABIC & PBS Director) and find out how to reduce our biggest expense from Kelly Cunningham (Leasing Expert).

We all need a reminder now and then of the infinite power that we hold inside of us, and we also at times need a helping hand to tap into our creative energy, that when unleashed, can truly bring about the most positive of changes.

I hope that reading this issue will remind you of that inner strength, inspire you, and reinforce your resolve to grow, prosper and continue to move from uncertainty to strength.
