As a busy mom, it's been nice to go at my own pace with the training and to fit it in when it works with our schedules. I like the personal touch with Trena Laine's training platform as it feels I'm getting one on one training. This program is assisting as a great reminder for myself of how things work directly with clients in person and has brought me up to speed on current situations, including new products out there to help with some skin conditions. I mostly work with clients through video chat so it's nice to know I have those options to offer them if those skin conditions ever come up. I am feeling confident in the knowledge and skills I am training with in this program!
I found this program to be a really nice refresher and add onto my certification. I have been working as a professional MUA for almost three years now but still found the little reminders I got from the course like re adding cold sore bandaids to my kit or reinstalling the skills that I had but may have forgotten due to not seeing it often like peeling sunburns or that I can apply makeup adequately and gently on a bride who didn't give a heads up about her raw, fresh and sore acne breakout.
I understand the makeup applications so much more now. The online courses are very straight forward and easy to train with. Thank you!
The program is very easy to follow, with the value far exceeding the posted cost. Her and her team’s approach in encompassing all facets of learning, including but not limited to, the artistic approach, basic to advanced understanding of all aspects of colour theory, to starting and maintaining a business is absolutely ground breaking in approach. This is where other programs lack, that this course picks up. The mix of artistic, and real-life application of your new skills.
I felt that Trena Laine brings fun and humour. Taking this course was not at all what i expected, it was better! I like the fact that Trena could teach all from past experience and is not reading to us directly from a book. Very hands on.
I loved it all, I loved that I learned so many new techniques. I’m so thankful (now) that Trena covers in depth how to work with skin conditions. I had no idea these things existed. I also really liked the business and marketing portion as well, I learned more a lot through that. Gave me confidence!
I am proud to say I own and operate my own makeup business. I was able to leave nearly 9 years of working for Shoppers Drug Mart, in the Beauty Boutique to pursue my passion in an official compacity. I support my family on my own terms. My successes now include, full publication, international recognition, as well as national and international travel. All due to the excellent teachings, and course outline of Trena Olfert.
"Some some goals that I have for myself is to read, study and participate in class. Some of the obstacles that I might face would be my financial situation and getting discouraged from it because I think to myself why would I study if I'm not going to graduate and finish my program. I get very discouraged when it comes to studying. Trena mentioned a few points about creating a healthy financial situation and how to reach a financial advisor or cut down spending habits that maybe cause the problems. Also manifesting and writing daily affirmation about how to be in control of your money."
"In Course 6, I found really useful was talking about obstacles and how to overcome them, such as time and how to find joy and happiness in your life, these are things that I definitely struggle with because I do find myself getting burnt out easily which makes my productivity level go down and then, as a result, I get overwhelmed and mad at myself because there's so much in a day that I want to achieve but I find time slips away from me. So by prioritizing and scheduling my days/ months more and pushing myself more days today to get things done I can feel more accomplished and in control of my life. This leads to some of the small goals I've set for myself, such as creating personal boundaries so that I can focus more time and energy on myself and my career. As well as being more active, by going to the gym and doing yoga on a regular basis to help heal my body, which will help my mental state making my productivity go up."
