I just wanted to say a big thank you and show my gratitude and how appreciative I am of your mentoring, help and guidance in teaching me Semi-permanent make-up and to tell other people why they should train with you. People who know me can`t believe that I have packed in my old job as a security systems engineer to do this, especially when they see my work, and one thing people ask is, “where are you learning that?” and I take pride in telling them Andrew Stassi of Smudge-free. Then I get asked, what`s Andrew like and the training? Well I can only say fantastic. Well why; because he is exceptional in his field (you only need to see his work and spend five minutes with him to see this).
Speaking with experience from people I know who have trained with other semi-permanent teachers where they teach everything in 3 days consecutively and have more than two people and strangers in a class; Andrew breaks his training down into separate days and he teaches one to one, so you get his whole attention. You don`t feel uncomfortable (which was great for a bloke like me having ago for the first time and not feeling intimidated) and you`re more likely to take more in being spoon fed information rather than bombarded because there is a lot to take in. Another reason he is so good is he cares. He cares about the industry, the clients, the work and his students and is always there to help even if he hasn`t heard from you he will always give a courtesy call to check everything is ok.
I can honestly say if I hadn`t had the aftercare guidance and help then I might have given up and I certainly wouldn`t be at the level I am at the moment. Don`t get me wrong, it`s hard work and you have to put the effort in but you will give yourself a better chance in excelling in this industry with Andrew`s mentoring and training.
Andrew I can`t thank you enough, you have helped give me a new career which I thoroughly enjoy. I believe in your work and training so much I would gladly speak to anyone if they are unsure and would strongly urge anyone who is thinking of this as a career do your research then choose Andrew Stassi of Smudge-free.
