Eden's Lucy Carty: 'You should never take no for an answer'
EDEN Skin and Laser Clinic was founded by qualified nurse Lucy Carty almost a year ago and specialises in non-surgical medical grade treatments for both men and women.
Based in Roscommon town, the clinic opened its doors last November.
According to Lucy, a qualified nurse for over 20 years, while you should never take no for an answer the key to success in business is honesty and transparency.
“They the cornerstones of my business and empowering my client to help them decide what it is they want to achieve when they visit,” she said. “And our most popular treatment is laser hair removal for excess or unwanted hair anywhere on the body.”
Here are her top tops for survival in business:
1 Listen: Listen..to those who are or have been in business. They have much knowledge to share about the mistakes they've made or what's working for them.
2. Don’t take no for an answer: If you believe 100pc in what you can do and achieve then yes it can be done,there is always a way. I've had more "No's" and looks of disbelief but I knew in my heart I could do this.
3 Surround yourself with like minded people, small business groups etc - an eternal source of encouragement , information sharing and network.
4 Eat, Love, Pray: we can easily get distracted and consumed by our business. Take the time out to do these things,call friends,date night with partner/kids, be kind to your body,your business will strive when you resume with a fresh relaxed state of mind.
