Beauty Spa Owner, Kristin Ramos Teaches women how to Build their own Business
Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristin Ramos.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
My name is Kristin Ramos, I am a Licensed esthetician, phlebotomist and owner of Eden Beauty Bar salon and spa in The Bronx. As a licensed esthetician, I am well versed in many treatments and modalities; and use my license to its full capacity. My niche, or focus I would say, is Body contouring and post operative care. My passion is teaching women entrepreneurship and how to get their foot in the door in this industry. I teach women the skill set they need to start their very own business. From being a part of my client’s body and skin transformations, to teaching the ins-and outs of the business I absolutely love what I do!
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Being a licensed esthetician was not my game plan! I have degrees in forensic psychology and planned to have a private practice counseling. How does the saying go? You plan and God laughs? I lost my mother when I was 25 years old and my entire life completely changed. I didn’t have the capacity to go back to Grad school just yet, but I also couldn’t sit home without a plan. Momma didn’t raise a quitter! Having just lost the core of my life, my best friend and role model, I needed to find something that fulfilled me and would make her proud. I also needed something that would allow me to be independent. Corporate life was always a struggle for me, I was always the youngest, too ambitious, and too head strong to just “do my job”. I didn’t know the first thing about starting a business and so, I made a lot of mistakes, spent a lot of unnecessary, money and failed more than I won. Working through my depression and grief was also a huge obstacle! No one tells you that if you don’t show up for YOU, nobody else will.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Eden Beauty bar is a one stop shop. We offer a full-service salon, where we specialize in natural and curly hair, facials, teeth whitening, body contouring, post operative care and so much more! I personally specialize in body contouring and post operative care They call me the Body snatcher for a reason! I also teach body contouring, teeth whitening and hyaluronic pen courses for those interested in learning the trade and starting their own business. My passion is to make a change in my client’s life, to encourage, support and make them feel comfortable in their own skin. I love the look on my clients faces when they see how their body or skin has changed after a session with me. Teaching is my calling; I absolutely love pouring into my students and guiding them through their start up. What sets me apart is my dedication and love for what I do. I want us ALL to win!
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Success is relative, it means different things to different people. My advice is to think about what that means to you, and don’t stop trying to achieve it! But also, give yourself grace. No matter what your definition of success is, know that there’s work that needs to be done. Don’t be so hard on yourself that you forget to enjoy the journey.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success to me means that I am aligned with my life purpose. That I am intentional, powerful and impactful to those around me. Success means Abundance. Abundance in time, in freedom, in financial security, in helping clients, in inspiring my students.
What’s next for you?
I plan to launch an academy where I offer in person, as well as online courses (I currently only offer in person courses). I want to reach more women and offer every resource they need to start their own beauty business. I am currently launching a line of waist trainers, fajas and body contouring products! I am very excited!
