Key Takeaways:

"You have to be able to talk to yourself through the bad times. And you gotta know that it's okay. To feel a certain way. It doesn't mean that you're losing because you're in tears that day or you're having a struggle. Your struggle is gonna make who you are later because you push through those struggles. Nothing worth having comes easy. The more you work for it, the more you'll see success." - Tamia Haynes

"You might be able to learn a couple of things, but you should please stick with brows, then move the lips. You have to give yourself grace and give yourself time because that way, you won't be mediocre. You'll be good, very, very good at one thing and then get very, very good at another. And just let your work speak for itself." - Tamia Haynes

"Once you find where you fit in and you don't stop looking at what other people are doing, you could be inspired. But at the same time, you got to know that you have your own style and you're always doing things and that is okay. It's not one way or the highway and you will attract what you are in the industry."- Tamia Haynes
