A massive congratulations to our Torquay Online Business Woman of the Month for November 2021 – Lisa Bennett.
Lisa runs LMB Beauty UK – (contact them here on Facebook), and in her own words…
“I specialise in wedding and special occasion make up, I’m also qualified in spray tans, Lash extension and nails and will be offering these services soon.”
I recently asked Lisa a few questions about her business – here’s what she had to say…
How did you get into starting the business?
I qualified as a wedding make up artist 15 years ago and have done make up on and off since, 3 years ago I also qualified in nails, Lash extensions and spray tans and created my brand.
What’s the most rewarding thing about running your business?
The most rewarding part of running my own business is working hours that fit around my family life, and I absolutely love seeing people happy and confident after their beauty treatments and make overs.
What is the most challenging part?
The most difficult part was building a customer base down here as I used to live in the midlands.
Any plans to expand in the near future?
I plan to open a shop in the next year offering various make up and beauty treatments.
Any advice to people looking to start a local business?
My advice to others looking to start a business would be have patience, success doesn’t happen overnight, find your skill or passion, keep going and make small steps to where you want to be.
Finally, what’s your favourite thing about Torbay?
Favourite thing about Torbay is the beautiful views and scenery.
Thanks so much to Lisa for taking the time to answer our questions and congratulations for your success so far…
