Blades & Beauty

Skincare specialist Vicky Lane set up her own business Blades & Beauty in 2019 because she wanted to work for herself & be her own boss. She's never looked back

Before I discovered Pocket PA, I used 3 different apps for all my business needs which can become a bit tedious. My business would not be where it is today without Pocket PA.

How did you get started in Skincare and working for yourself?

I started my business in 2019 after wanting to do something for myself, and something to make me feel proud. I looked at all the options but I have always been interested in beauty and skincare.

I found a skincare course online and booked it without hesitation, I thought, If I like it, great, If I don't that's ok.

I completed the course and I just instantly knew that I wanted to do skincare treatments.

I started my Instagram page and had a small clientele and a few models. I had no idea how popular skincare treatments were until I started and I became busier and busier.

I never expected this. I have built such a good relationship with my clients and nothing makes me feel happier knowing they are happy with the treatment I provided.

I feel totally in control of my bookings and income. Sending out email reminders is so
professional and all my clients love it!
What do you feel most proud of over the last 12 months?

The biggest achievement in the last 12 months has been building a clientele and having people recommend me.

I never believed I could start my own business, have a clientele, have clients that are like friends to me, all while managing a full-time job.

Where do you see yourself a year from now?

In the next 12 months, I would love to own my own salon and train in new aesthetic treatments.

I would like to further my skills and gain another qualification in beauty.

Pocket PA has made my day to day life so much easier and I love how all my bookings, payments, expenses can all be dealt with in one app.

I am so new to tax returns and expenses, but Pocket PA makes this a breeze.

Pocket PA sends out automatic reminders to my clients to remind them of their appointment which saves me a job every night.
