One of the things that I have loved the most about this journey through skin cancer and starting Leilani Mobile Tan is the opportunity to meet so many new people. I have made connections that I would have never had the chance to do. I have developed relationships via long distance and online with people that I don’t even have a face to match them to. I have reached thousands of people through my chance to bring awareness to skin cancer by my interview on TV with ABC news, my blog on MD Anderson, and more recently my news article with our local paper the Kingwood Observer, which should go to print this week!
I have also made new friends through this…and helped young girls realize the importance of taking care of their skin now. All of these things have ignited my passion for writing and reminded me of how much I enjoy being out there meeting new people. The best thing about it all is that I really LOVE doing what I am doing. I LOVE the airbrush tanning business and I LOVE being an advocate for skin cancer awareness…I want to do MORE! And I know I will. I am already scheming on setting up a team of girls to do the Dirty Girl run in October and represent Leilani! Be watching for that!
Before I close, I wanted to mention one particularly awesome person that I have met, Lauren Briant. She came to me awhile back needing an emergency tan…I was able to fit her in, no problem. Because she said she had a regular person that did her airbrush tans I didn’t think anything of it and wasn’t sure I would hear from her again. She called me last week and proceeded to tell me how much she loved her tan…which of course I loved to hear! Lauren is so sweet and humble and during our conversation this time, she told me that she was a singer. Of course with a 9 year old daughter who loves to sing, I thought that was great and introduced her to Emma. We later went inside and looked her up on the internet as she had told me that she had an album on Itunes…well let me tell you she is AMAZING! She has a beautiful voice and I believe she will go far in this business! Again, I just love my job and everyone I am meeting and a HUGE thank you to all of the people that are supporting me!
