Today we’d like to introduce you to Rina Sorrenti.
Rina, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started working when I was 11. Always knew at a young age I wanted to never depend on anyone for money. I decided to not go to college and just work. I then went to beauty school and found my way to Newbury street. That is where my clientele grew. I knew I wanted to be my own boss so 2 yrs. later that happened. I’ve now been doing this for 16 years and 13 years a business as an owner.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I would say my struggles were more based on fear and taking risks. After 7 great years on Newbury street I decided to move my business to Newton, once that lease was up after 6 years I moved to Wellesley. With every move is a risk of losing clients but I’ve gained so many more that is was worth it.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Rina’s Studio – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Rina’s Studio is a brow shaping, body waxing business. I take it very seriously and am proud of that. Every client that walks in, I make sure they are comfortable and happy when they leave. I get to work 2.5 hrs. early to make sure my wax is perfectly heated. I also take pride in never running late. I don’t take clients that are really late, it’s not fair to my other clients so I kindly ask to reschedule. My clients have been with me for over 10 years and I’m happy to call them my friends. I love my job.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
For now, I will stay put and eventually would love to learn more. Maybe microblading or laser hair removal. No big changes.
