“It’s great as you meet lots of new women and get to have a good natter while doing their nails!”
Meet GirlCrew Dublin member, Sorcha Telli, owner of Glitzy Girls
While I have picked up some very bad habits when it comes to nail care, for others, nail polish holds a very special place in their hearts. Sorcha Telli, GirlCrew Dublin, says “I have always been interested in hair and beauty. Especially nails and nail art. I was spending a fortune getting my own nails done and decided I would do the necessary training to become a nail technician”.
This go-getter attitude is vital for someone working for themselves, but it also would provide an extra financial boost. “It would save me money by doing my own nails and become an extra source of income at the same time!…I work full time as a primary teacher and as I have time off in evenings, week-ends and summer I wanted to have another job to supplement my income.” Along with the glamour and the financial reward, the job has a social element to it that Sorcha loves – “it’s great as you meet lots of new women and get to have a good natter while doing their nails. It’s something I enjoy doing and is flexible which makes it perfect for me. I can offer a service that salons can’t. I am able to come to you so it helps for busy mums or ladies stuck working late that can’t get to a salon in business hours!”
So, if you think your hands need a little TLC be sure to get in touch with Sorcha and she’ll be glad to help you out.
1. What is the best thing about your role?
I get to chat to lots of people and make their nails look pretty! It’s amazing how much of a boost you can get from little treats like getting your hair or nails done!
2. What did you find most challenging about it?
As I am new enough to this area of Dublin meeting people and getting business has been hard work.
3. What is your proudest work related achievement to date?
Getting such good feedback though testimonials on my Facebook page have been very encouraging and being recommended to others has increased my client base.
4. What would be your one tip to others who want to get involved in this industry?
Go for it! Do the training and do what you do well. Word of mouth goes a long way so what-ever you do, do it properly. Attention to detail is important in this industry.
5. What would be your motto in life, and in work?
What’s for you won’t pass you! My Mam always says it and your mam is always right!
