We recently connected with Talia Stokes and have shared our conversation below.
Talia , thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Let’s kick things off with your mission – what is it and what’s the story behind why it’s your mission?
I experienced skin issues a few years ago and wanted to find a way for my solution. After healing my own skin I expanded my knowledge to treat different skin types and provide clients with the tools they need to combat their issues.
As always, we appreciate you sharing your insights and we’ve got a few more questions for you, but before we get to all of that can you take a minute to introduce yourself and give our readers some of your back background and context?
I am Talia & I am the owner of Chaya Beauty skincare, Chaya Beauty spa & a self taught nail technician. I got into the skincare industry in 2019 and have been steadily growing since. I provide skincare products as well as do facials and waxing. I am teaching myself to do nails to provide a one stop shop for clients. I not only do facials but I educate clients on how to care for their skin at home or even on vacations. I think what sets me apart from the rest is that I remain my authentic self. I genuinely love what I do and love to help others. I will graduate in Dec for esthetics & oncology esthetics. Some people don’t realize how important it is to provide care for people going through chemotherapy as that is a pivotal time in their lives where they deserve a higher level of care and concern.
Have you ever had to pivot?
I had to change things up with my products recently because I noticed that most people didn’t know their skin type or how to properly store products. I also eliminated some products that I felt would be best during seasonal periods and not everyday use. Things have changed while in school that has given me a better understanding about skincare so I incorporate that into my daily operations.
We often hear about learning lessons – but just as important is unlearning lessons. Have you ever had to unlearn a lesson?
A lesson I had to unlearn was not letting lack of support from friends or family slow me down or deter me from my goals. I realized this after listening and seeing other people talk about they road to entrepreneurship how they received the most support and encouragement from strangers. So I say myself down and came up with a new game plan no longer letting it get me down or stop me from achieving a new level.
