Working as a make-up artist in the 1970s, Trish McEvoy says she used to struggle to find quality cosmetic brushes. So she would buy brushes from art-supply stores and cut them into the shape she needed to apply eye liners, lipsticks and blushes (as shown).Trish now has her beauty products in more than 250 stores in the United States and Europe with annual revenue just under U.S. $100 million. She has 500+ employees.
So don't 'brush off' (pardon the pun) business ownership just yet this year. You never know when you are on to something! The trick is to keep persevering!
