We had the good fortune of connecting with Chimera Michellle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chimera, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
The End Goal In my Career is simple. I would like to have own a few medspa locations after obtaining my nursing degree and spa license. I would also like to sell skincare products and care packages that include cute things such as cryoglobes, towels, products & more.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Chi Aesthetics prides itself on combining peace/meditation practices with self care because in our opinion it goes hand in hand. Stress causes acne by releasing the hormone cortisol, which may make your skin more oily causing breakouts. This is why in skincare keeping your stress levels controlled is a huge factor and people look over it the most. So at Chi Aesthetics we focus on giving you a peace of mind, cleansed space, detoxed body, and clear skin. We include mini massages, ice globe massages, steamed towels, heated massage pads, cucumber water and more to help relax each client during their treatment. I got where i am today by being a sponge. I never stopped learning new things even when i thought I knew enough. Relearning, taking advanced courses every month, watching YouTube videos of seasoned vets in the esthetician industry and more really aided in where I am today professionally. The do’s and don’t videos from women who have been where i am Guide my the most. A challenge i faced was gaining a loyal clientele and no it was not easy. I learned that a lot of my clients were coming just for specials and discounts in the beginning. I learned from a thrive esthetician groupchat created by Lia Leigh (famous YouTuber and esthetician) To charge your price and never look back because the world will lowball you. I want the world to know that chi aesthetics is currently rebranding and we are launching our skincare line Derma By Chi (Chi Aesthetics) this summer.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m a Brunch Fanatic, so any city i go to I love brunch so I would recommend a spot for that for sure. Lost and found in Houston is a really cute spot and has some very good food! The drinks are great as well.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate this shoutout to a few people. Thank you to my mother Christine Webster, without her my business wouldn’t have gotten off the ground.
She invested time, money, and support. Thank you to Jordan smith for always supporting me, staying up late with me to figure out sales, fixing website, fixing my suite up, and everything else you have done to contribute to my business. Thank you to SugaSuga LLC, my mentor when i first started in this business. Thank you Ms Charles for teaching me all that you know and for continuing to check in on your students. Your faith pushed me so far and for that I’m super grateful. Thank you God for everything, he’s the reason i haven’t given up on myself or my brand.
