PURPOSELY POSITIONED WITH KEISHA “STARR” ARCHER
Starr discusses her journey as an entrepreneur and mom. She quotes, "You have to continue being hungry for more and know your WHY"
“I noticed that as women we care more about our bodies and the way we look more than anything. One day, I figured how cool would it be for me to expand my skills by becoming someone that can really help change a person’s body, to make them feel better without surgery. I researched and stepped out on faith and began my business.”
If you’re interested in becoming an Aesthetician, Starr has the following advice,
“Go for it, all we have every day in life is time 9-13 months will pass you by so might as well just DO IT!” It took me 9 months to complete the esthetician program, and I continued taking other classes to become more knowledgeable in my career.”
