The VAIN Academy advantage is the support and encouragement that we provide for our peers. We stand by our mission statement of community over competition. A lack of self-confidence breeds doubt, insecurity and animosity. In the aesthetic world, this further divides us. The nucleus of VAIN Academy is uniting like minded individuals who encourage growth not only within themselves but for their peers as well. There is always something you can learn, and always something you can teach.
At VAIN academy we instill confidence and increase aptitude which translates to how we provide care for our patients. We want to groom the best to be the best to provide the best care and results. Confidence, proficiency and assurance is what separates the good injectors from the best injectors. All injectors have potential to be at the top given the right people and tools to help you succeed.
VAIN Academy’s principles promote higher education, self-assurance and independence at the highest skill level. We provide the best training and support team long after you have completed your training. We are here for you to succeed and provide the resources necessary to do so.
COMMUNITY OVER COMPETITION
We’ve heard this saying before, but what does it really mean? This phrase is the backbone of VAIN Academy. It means valuing people and relationships more than gaining all the customers or business you can. It means being kind to others in our industry or outside of it. Have an industry secret that will better someone’s business? Share it! Comment on each other’s social media posts, spread positivity throughout the community and help each other build a better business.
“It’s a marathon, not a sprint.” The race is actually only a small part of the entire process. It is the training before that you put in and the plan after that you follow that really counts. Oftentimes we make a plan and then roadblocks happen, or our mind/body becomes weary and we get burnt out. We tend to think “if I could just get 10 more patients a week I will be happy, if I could make ‘x’ amount a year I’ll be happy, if only I had ‘x’ many followers on Instagram I’ll be happy. At VAIN Academy we teach how to have a road map and set goals. It is the consistent small steps that add up over time to the bigger picture and at VA; we know that firsthand.
BE BOLD, BE YOU
No one that is YOU and that is YOUR power. In an industry that is fast-paced, competitive, and redundant, it is important to remain true to yourself. Be your authentic self and there is no competition. It may seem that you are not doing enough, busy enough or popular enough but in order to remain true to yourself it is important to keep in mind that you can have everything just not all at once. At VAIN Academy we will teach you the tools necessary to keep your head in the game for the long haul.
IT’S ONLY CRAZY UNTIL IT HAPPENS
If you’ve ever written down your goals you may have thought to yourself “wow this one is so crazy but whatever I’m going to write it down.” Then in a year you look back and you think “Wow, I did that!” Or if you have ever told someone your dreams and they listed off the ‘what if’s’ but then when you accomplish said dream, they ask you ‘how did you do it?’ At VAIN Academy there is no such thing as a crazy idea or a goal too outlandish. We empower students to believe all the reasons why their plans can happen, not all the reasons why they can’t.
“We are not in the coffee business serving people, we are in the people business serving coffee.” This quote may sound familiar as it is attributed to Howard Schultz, Founder and CEO of Starbucks. Replace the word coffee with aesthetics and the same is true. People prefer to do business with those they trust. In our industry gaining the trust of the patient is the epitome to success. At VAIN Academy we distill in our students what every business should recognize; the patient experience and value on relationships.
Hustle. Grind. Execute. Have the hustle to pursue your dreams and let nothing stop you. Grind day in and day out. Do all the necessary repetitive steps to move yourself forward. Do what no one else wants to do. Have the courage to execute. Realize things will never be perfect and you just have to go for it.
ALWAYS A STUDENT
‘You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward.’ If you aren’t learning then you are staying stagnant. We pride ourselves on remaining current within our industry to provide the highest level of care. There is something that each of us can learn from someone regardless of years of experience, level of degree, or stature. At VAIN Academy, we value higher level education. A true leader is forever a student; always learning and improving.
