Hidden Gems: Meet Sandra Bothia of The Top Lashes & Beauty

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sandra Bothia. 

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?
I am Sandra, owner of The Top Lashes & Beauty. It all started with a dream, an idea and a want. I dreamt I would own a business again and proudly be my own boss. 

I would think about the beauty industry a lot but it was about 20 months ago when lashes found me. 

I was living in Colombia where I was born and raised, when I got the opportunity to come to United States and work as a manager receptionist for a beauty salon in Naples, Florida. 

I am so thankful I crossed paths with this Salon and Alejandra, the owner, because without her, whom mentored me in lash extensions, and give me the opportunity to switch my job from receptionist to lash artist I wouldn’t have began this journey. 

I met in Naples, Florida whom is my husband now, he is from Dayton, Ohio, so I moved 10 months ago to Ohio. I started looking for esthetician jobs opportunities around my area but it was nothing close my area, the only jobs available were located more than 45 miles away from where I live. It was when I decided to set up a lash room in my own house but I am located so far from the main cities that it was not a successful idea. I didn’t stop my passion and it comes the opportunity to open my own little space at house of caurel. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My biggest challenge has been making sure I feel self-confident and mentally strong to develop my vision & idea and sell it.

Build my clientele has not been an easy path for me in a new country, new city, new language, new culture where it is none family or friends located in USA that can bring me that support, whether it’s financial, operational or emotional.

However, if you have a passion for this amazing industry, that is Beauty. You will have the ability to earn a living from something you love.

I am committed to learning as I go, trusting myself in this journey and hopefully being able to scale this into something that eventually will be a space for others to learn and grow as well.
