We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole Gilmore and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nicole, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
My life has changed now since I have took a leap of faith, a few years ago to focus on my passion to lash customers full time. I’m barely home when I am I definitely try to enjoy that time with my love ones and also I am very blessed to wake up and do a job that I greatly enjoy. My day at work is a full day seeing my lovely old and new clients each day.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My work is doing eyelash extensions full time. The thing I like about it the service it’s in high demand and it’s a very competitive industry right now. The lash game is changing and you have to continue your education to stand out. There are so many great lash artist I come across that inspired me. With that being said I use that to make myself go harder each day and remind myself I came to far to quite I came to win! Do what you love, yes it can be hard but keep pushing, great things are ahead. I have a ebook out right now to help you build your lash business with great tips etc. you can find it on my website www.lashkiss-eyelashes.com I hope you enjoy.

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 really love to have a good time since I am from Dallas I love to go to Harris House of Heroes great food, Hookah kicking back with my friends great energy and you definitely will get a vibe of Dallas!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I can definitely say I am a big fan to quite a few successful black women in the industry one being Ming Lee she wrote a ebook that really inspired me to do things in your life that makes you happy life is what you make it and if that 9-5 isn’t making you happy take a leap of faith and do what does!
