What would you do if you were rejected from your dream opportunity? What would you do if you didn’t have a backup plan? In this episode I sat down with Faith Hudson, founder and CEO of A Lash Life Beauty Brand, and discussed how she was able to start an academy and scale a business to earn over $50,000 in revenue monthly, after she experienced a huge failure.
Faith Hudson is also the founder and Executive Director of Qiángdà STRONG Academy. The Academy provides a competitive academic experience for students residing in South West Atlanta.
The Academy equips students in grades Pre-K-5 with the tools necessary to compete in a global society. Qiángdà Academy students achieve Success Through Mandarin Language Immersion, Cohort Looping, and STEAM Enrichment.
As an entrepreneur, Faith Hudson created and opened A Lash Life Brand Beauty Spa in 2018 in Buckhead, Atlanta. A Lash Life provides new and innovative beauty services to women in the greater Atlanta area. In less than 2 years of operation, A Lash Life has expanded to two Atlanta locations and an additional location in Washington DC.
