Today we’d like to introduce you to Juliana Cavender.
Hi Juliana, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I’ve been a nomad a lot of my life! In my 20’s I lived in a lot of cities, worked multiple gigs and attended a few different schools. Once I got my esthetics license, I boogied down to Dallas, TX where I juggled jobs, life and my pursuit of purpose. Once I made my way back to Kansas, I began taking clients out of a small studio space and with time, referrals and hustle I landed in the space we are still in today six years later! I never imagined growing a team or a business for that matter – but the life lessons I have acquired through the process are ones I’ll never take for granted. Today we are a team of 11 at Everyday Beaut – and that’s not including our team of six at our sister store Clifton Collective!
In growing an organization and team, it became apparent I needed to do the work it takes to become an adequate leader. Through mistakes, heartache and big time learning lessons I acquired many mentors and sought out opportunities to further my leadership skills, unpack my own stuff that was holding me back and elevate myself so I can elevate others. My goals have changed immensely throughout the years! At one point it was to grow, be renowned and successful – these days, it’s to further my team, grow an organization from the inside out and provide opportunities to my crew. I now believe without a doubt nothing compares to living out your passion with people we believe in, with people who believe in our mission and the mutual support that comes from cultivating culture within the organization.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I’ve learned so many lessons throughout the last eight years of entrepreneurship. I’ve been told no countless times and made wrong decisions; I’ve been hurt by employees turned best friends and had my identity in work (i.e., been a workaholic); I’ve juggled business ownership and motherhood and felt the guilt that comes from not being able to do it all.
The amount of heartache I’ve experienced along this journey has been immense but it’s been the biggest blessing and given me the opportunity to refine and move forward. I’m a bit of a pull-up-your-boot-straps kinda gal and even then…it can be tough!
I’m thankful for the moments in hindsight because it’s built an empathy in me I lacked previously in life. I know all things come to pass and sometimes we live life a little in the grey until we figure it out.
I’m thankful to know where I’ve been and where I’m going. Both are beautiful moments in my story!
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Everyday Beaut is a salon and shop located in both Leawood and Wichita, KS! We are a team of estheticians and one nail artist who specializes in lash extensions, lash lifts, brow lamination, skin, wax and nail services.
Our environment is very comparable to that of a hair salon. Our space is open concept which leads to the opportunity for connection between stylists and clients! We are known for our relatability, our standard in services and consistency in customer service.
I’m most proud of cultivating an organization that is committed to providing a space for genuine connection that leads to a holistic experience for our guests and team. We believe in supporting the Everyday Beaut that is inside of us all to live their most authentic and fruitful lives through the culture + services we provide. We’re just grateful our guests choose us to be their services providers and friends!
What matters most to you? Why?
What matters most to me is living an authentic life; to leave a legacy of humility and fortitude; being a good wife and mother; stewarding what God has given me well and spending time with my tribe!
