A few years ago, I approached our Director of Marketing
about the possibility of creating a Facebook Group for educators. I wanted to be able to reach out to educators
and share ideas while asking them their thoughts on a variety of subjects. We tossed the idea around for a while
discussing what the goal of a group page would be, along with what kind of
content we wanted to share.
We finally launched the Milady Instructors Facebook Group
page last October. The page was created
with you the educator in mind. Our goal was to provide advice, guidance, and
motivation. We want to share tips,
activities, and ideas that you can put into action and hopefully make your job
a bit easier.
I am so happy to say that today, 6 months since launching
the group, we added our 500th follower.
I would like to say thanks! to each one of you who have
joined the group and have interacted with us.
Thank you for your likes, comments and sharing your ideas. Please keep sharing!
Without you, we don’t exist. You, the educator, is the heart of the school and of the beauty and wellness industry. If you have any ideas or suggestions on topics or ideas you would like us to post on, please comment on our Facebook Page!
