How A 21 Year Old Retail Worker Turned Her Passion into a $80,040 Empire From Home Working Only 2 to 3 Hours Per Day


Written by Aaron Miles
Published on Apr 16, 2024

Imagine no longer stacking shelves.

No more annoying bosses

No more working weekend shifts and hours that don't suit your lifestyle! 

And ditching those rude customers!! 

Turn the hours you spend at home into a thriving business empire that not only brings in a substantial income but also allows you to have the flexibility you have always dreamed of

& Doing it with ZERO Experience

This isn’t just a dream; it’s the reality Indianna crafted from her loungeroom.

In 3 months she went from working at Chemist Warehouse earning $22.50 per hour to over $130 per hour from her second loungeroom as her own boss. 

No business knowledge and basic tools, she transformed her life and now empowers other women to do the same.


Indianna’s Story: A Journey of Grit and Glamour

At 21, faced with the challenges of being a new mum and the daunting prospect of a minimum-wage job, Indianna’s future seemed dictated by necessity rather than choice.

"I barely graduated high school," she admits.

"If you had asked anyone back then, they'd say I was bound to fail."

But Indianna wasn’t ready to settle.

Determined to show her daughter that success is crafted through passion and perseverance, she embarked on an unlikely journey—from a full-time mum to a lash extension entrepreneur.

Her turning point came during a casual chat with her lash technician, who mentioned making $480 in a day, even on a slow day.

That sparked an idea that would soon burgeon into a booming business.

Starting with clients on her bed and using a simple bedside lamp, Indianna’s ambition was clear: create a flexible job she loved without sacrificing family time.

From Zero Business Experience Earning $22.50 In Retail To Earning Over $130 p/h 3 Months Later

Many women find themselves yearning for a change,

aspiring to achieve greater financial independence,

flexibility, and autonomy over their careers.

Indianna's story mirrors these desires:

  • Low income & Struggling to make ends meet:  Like many, Indianna was trapped in a low-paying job, struggling to make ends meet, especially as a new mother.

    This is even more evident today and a common problem in most households due to the rising cost of living.
  • No Time & ZERO Flexibility: With a young daughter to care for, the rigid schedules of traditional jobs clashed with her responsibilities at home.

    Indianna didn't have time for herself and she wanted to make sure she could be available when her daughter needed her most.
  • She hated her job : The need to be her own boss was about more than just pride; it was about creating a life that aligned with her values and goals.

"I would have missed the first steps, missed her first words and these are all memories I now cherish..." 

Remaining in an unsatisfactory job can lead to chronic stress,

limited financial growth,

and a feeling of being stuck,

which impacts one's overall life satisfaction.

Indianna’s transition to becoming her own boss through Islashboutique's course not only improved her financial situation but also her family life and self-esteem.

"If I didn't take action I would have

missed the first steps,

missed her first words and these are all memories I now cherish" Indianna reflected on her memories she was able to be present for thanks to her own business from home. 

"It saddens me that day in day out other women miss out on these opportunities,

just because they are too scared or don't feel like they are good enough.

Everyone I talk to now I preach how I barely graduated and it helps them bridge the gap".

Indianna is a strong believer in having purpose and says by unconvering someone's deepest desire helps them to take action and change their lives. 

"We miss out on so much working for someone else & for what?

Just $22.50 an hour in my case and "security".

It's just not worth it. COVID proved that nothing is secure. So why not take the leap and actually discover what your full potential is" Indianna says.  


"I Have Helped Over 2548+ Women Achieve Success From Their Own Home" 

Today Indianna helps women just like herself find their passion and setup from their own homes.

Helping more than 2548+ women to date she has seen and heard every story and relates to it on a deep level taking them from ZERO knowledge to beauty boss in 30 days flat.

Indianna is so confident in her ability to train that she even guarantees results. 

So who does she actually help?

"We help people in all walks of life:  

• Those who want to start a full time business and replace their existing income

• People who want to setup a side hustle for a little bit of extra play money
• Ladies who have dropped out of school and struggling to find jobs - we give them opportunites they  could have never imagined

• OR a little closer to home mum's who don't want to return to work after giving birth 

There isn't really anyone we can't help as long as they have a strong reason we can help them uncover their potential and take them from Zero knowledge to beauty boss" 

The solution to these common issues lies in taking control of your career trajectory.

Islashboutique’s Eyelash Extension Course enables just that, by offering:

• A Low-Risk Financial Investment: With flexible payment options starting at $22 per week, starting your own business is more accessible than ever.

• A Comprehensive Business in a Box: This course comes with all the necessary tools and resources, ensuring you can start immediately after certification without any additional investment.

How Has Islashboutique Managed To Go From Home Salon To "Australia's Favourite Beauty Educator" In Such A Short Time

"It's simple we care about our students and give them everything they need to skip all the hurdles I faced when I started" Indianna says that by offering the students everything upfront it increases their chances of success.

In her early days she learned first hand that there are 3 common issues you will face when setting up a business. 

"Most early business fail in the lashing industry because of 3 things:

1. Not having the right lashing knowledge

2. Not having the correct equipment 

3. Not having the knowledge to setup a business correctly and understanding how to get clients (This is what actually makes money)" Indianna has crafted her offer by including everything the students need and it fast tracks them to achieve their desired outcome.

Analysis of the student surveys show that vast majority of the students achieve their desired outcomes listed below 

  • Increase of income whilst working from home
  • Creating a better work life balance through choosing their own hours
  • More holidays and a better social life 
  • Reduced stress and overworking

So, How Much Does A Lash Tech Actually Earn? 

When considering a career in eyelash extensions, potential earnings are a crucial factor for many.

To provide a clear perspective on what one can expect to earn, let's examine the financial prospects based on industry standards and real-life examples,

Typically, a lash technician might charge around $80 per full set.

If a technician were to book 8 clients per day at this rate, the daily income would amount to $640.

Expanding this figure over a standard five-day work week translates to a weekly income of $3,200.

Annually, assuming two weeks of vacation, a lash technician could see earnings around $166,400.

However, these numbers represent a base scenario.

At upscale salons or in high-demand urban areas, lash technicians often charge much higher rates.

For example, at Indianna's own Islashboutique salon, the charge for a set of lashes can reach up to $160.

At this higher rate, with the same number of daily clients, the daily earnings double to $1,280, leading to potential annual earnings of approximately $332,800, factoring in the same vacation period.

This substantial income difference underscores the importance of quality training and skill enhancement, as provided by Islashboutique.

Through comprehensive courses that emphasise both technical skills and business acumen, lash technicians can elevate their service, allowing them to command higher prices and increase their market value.

So it's very easy to see how Indianna was able to achieve that lucrative income of $80,040 per year working only 2 to 3 hours a day. 

Furthermore, the ability to customise pricing and work schedules allows lash technicians to optimise their earnings and align their professional activities with personal lifestyle preferences, thereby achieving both financial and personal fulfillment.



Take Charge of Your Time: Embrace the Freedom of Being Your Own Boss

One of the most transformative benefits of being your own boss, as demonstrated through Islashboutique's training program, is the unparalleled flexibility it offers.

This autonomy allows you to craft a schedule that aligns perfectly with your life priorities, whether that's being present for your children’s milestones,

attending important social events,

or simply taking a well-deserved holiday whenever you need it.

For instance, Indianna, founder of Islashboutique, shaped her business around her role as a mother,

ensuring she was there to witness every precious moment with her daughter without sacrificing her career aspirations.

This level of control over your time not only enhances work-life balance but also significantly boosts overall life satisfaction.

The freedom to decide when, where, and how much you work is not just a perk; it's a game-changer, enabling you to live your life on your terms while still achieving professional success and financial independence.
