Exploring Life & Business with Bree Zorko of Mane Chic

Today we’d like to introduce you to Bree Zorko. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
When I was in High School, they had trades you could apply to get into when you’re still in school and you’d go half the day, I decided to apply to the Cosmetology program. So, when I graduated at 17, I also had my Cosmetology license. I always knew from a very young age; that I wanted a life of choices and to create a life by design. I always joke and say I’m not the best employee, But I work really hard for myself. I knew I was made for something big and wanted to make an impact in others’ lives, I really enjoyed making people feel their best. I started out at a few salons, and never could find the perfect kit for me, so I took a leap of faith and started my own Beauty Business doing hair color, extensions, and spray tanning at 19. I really had no idea what I was doing, but I learned along the way, googled a lot of things, and learned with experience. I utilized social media to grow my clientele because at the time I really didn’t have any. I would take photos and post everything I did, I certainly wasn’t the best hairstylist in the game but I was determined to be my own boss and make it work. Then fast forward a few years, I decided to start a self-tanning line called Bronzed Chic, I noticed how much more confident my clients were after they have received a spray tan, I wanted them to feel like this all the time, not just for a special occasion, once again, I knew nothing about having an Ecom business, but I was determined to figure it out. Google became my best friend again! At 22, I was really ready for something more, I loved making people feel good and loved my clients but I knew that chapter was ending. My passion wasn’t there anymore and I wasn’t really having that time freedom and ” life by design” I really wanted. So, I decided to become a part of a health and wellness business, and within a few months of hard work and dedication, I was able to leave my beauty business and do that full time, where later on I became a Regional Vice President. I learned so much throughout my journey and truly became obsessed with becoming the best version of myself. In 2020 during quarantine, I started to miss aspects of the beauty industry I had a crazy idea to open a salon a few months prior and last minute decided not to sign the lease for the space. Which was a blessing because a little over a month later covid happened. But in the back of my mind was still this idea of providing luxury beauty services, and I had a name in mind, Mane Chic which would be Bronzed Chic’s sister company. I thought how amazing would it be to have your extensions or spray come to you, on-site. I invested in my first business mentor and started doing research again, I did have more experience in business but I was more of a solo entrepreneur and now I was creating a team. In 2021, I launched Mane Chic a luxury on-site beauty team and within one year we became a six-figure business. It hasn’t always been easy, and there is always more to learn along the way but I’m so grateful for this journey I’m on! 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road, there are always ups and downs. Every level has new devils and always requires a new version of you. There’s always something to learn.
