We had the good fortune of connecting with Dominique Villarreal and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dominique, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I think risk taking is very important when it comes to making a big decision like starting your own business. Risk has played a big role in my life when it cane to opening Dominique Esthetics because I had no idea how it would turn out from starting off with no clients, products, machines and no real following or content, once I finally took that risk everything started to grow, and looking back I’m glad I decided to take the risk because I’ve accomplished a lot as I’m continuing to grow.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Like most other business Dominique aesthetics was built off of an idea that I had for years, I thought to myself that I’ve waited so long and I need to just go for it, so I finally grabbed a pen and notebook and started from there. I remember writing down everything I needed from most costly to least and from there I would purchase atleast 2-3 items with the paycheck I would receive from my day job until I finally had everything I needed. It wasn’t easy because I was so anxious to get started but I knew I had to be patient and consistent and all would fall into place. I am most proud of my ability to not give up when things felt overwhelming or when some months where sometimes slower then others first starting out, from this experience I’ve learned to be consistent, positive and strong. I look forward to growing my business and continuing to do what makes me happy.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If I had a friend visiting the area the first place I would take them would be sedona, sedona is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in my opinion. There is so much to do and see and I always come back feeling recharged. I would also take them to all the downtown locations in my area which is the east valley, downtown Gilbert, Phoenix and Scottsdale. Every city’s downtown has its own unique and beautiful scenery and overall feel.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to give all my credit and recognition to my clients and followers. Without them I would not be able to do what I love and what I’m so passionate about. They have helped me grow and expand as a business and even helped me get out of my shell and out of my comfort zone. I’ve made many great relationships with my clients and have also been able to become more skilled in what I do.
