I became a Nail Technician in March 2004 after taking voluntary redundancy from my office job of 15 years. When I first decided to leave my Telecoms and IT job I decided I would become a Beauty Therapist which was about as far removed from IT as you could possibly get! I needed a complete change of career direction having given every ounce of energy and commitment to my old job and feeling totally burned out and the end of it, I needed a new challenge to inspire me... After discovering that Beauty Therapy was the new up and coming business to be in, and that all the college courses in my area were booked up for 2 years I had to reconsider. It followed a chance comment by a friend who said I was always doing things with my nails and complaining that I couldn't find a decent Nail Technician, that planted a seed of an idea, and over the next few months I started investigating the possibility of starting my own business as a Nail Technician... I decided to do basic Manicure and Pedicure..
