Brooke Terrabrio loves how rewarding grooming can be, but recognizes that it is easy to get caught up in what other people are doing. Her recommendation to other groomers is to stop comparing yourself to others, learn at your own pace, and embrace your own style. It allows you to enjoy your creativity and to share it with the world without getting caught up in the game of expectations.
"I spent three years doing volunteer grooming for local rescues. Seeing those dogs go from overlooked, dirty dogs to adorable family members, and getting to continue to groom them throughout their lives, has been rewarding."
Elizabeth Torres sees every groom as an opportunity to make a dog's day better. She knows the act of grooming is not about the groomer, but the animal and its safety, comfort and enjoyment. Throughout her 18-year career, Elizabeth has continued to be an avid learner, taking inspiration from her creative community on her journey towards mastery.
Rachel Vedder helps three sides of the grooming community: The pets, the groomers and the customers. Her success comes from being able to navigate all these groups, providing high-quality experience for her pets, a detailed and collaborative effort for her clients, and knowledge for her fellow groomers. She takes every moment as a learning opportunity, and invests in herself for her future.
When Darius left the salon that taught him his craft, there was a sense of sadness and finality he couldn't shake. But, Darius knew that if you never take risk, you'll never know the rewards.
