for Beauty Entrepreneurs & Ambassadors
PROGRAMS FOR THE NEXT STEP OF
YOUR CAREER JOURNEY
Beauty Entrepreneurs have access to Entrepreneur Circle programs with a recurring monthly contribution.
Your monthly contribution is a donation to Worth Up Alliance, administrated by the non-profit 501(c)3 Beauty Changes Lives. All donations are tax-deductible.
Our generous sponsors have funded the “Dream Capital by Worth Up Alliance Entrepreneurial Summer 2022 Grant”. The Worth Up Alliance serves beauty entrepreneurs ready to take the next step in their career. The alliance supports successful hairdressers, barbers, make-up artists, estheticians, massage therapists and nail professionals who aspire to open a salon, spa or barbershop, formulate a product line, expand their business, make the leap from behind the chair to behind the scenes as an editorial stylist, or other notable career advance.
Entrepreneur Circle members will be selected to pitch their concepts to a panel of judges for a chance to receive up to $10,000 to start their business. In addition, the Dream Capital recipients will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with an industry elite mentor.

Expertise in Goal Setting, Inspiration, Accountability, Strategizing, and more!
Community Discussion Forum
Communicate directly with other Beauty Entrepreneurs about a variety of different topics, that you choose!
We believe having a space for you to ask questions, share your business thoughts, as well as the ability to build connections with others in the Beauty Industry gives you a huge advantage over your competition.
Finding capital was the hardest part of starting my business. As a single mother of two children I had limited resources. I started my business in cash with my savings and had no margin for error. As a result of limited funding and guidance, I worked around the clock, resulting in limited time for my children and interpersonal relationships. My work life balance would ultimately start to compromise my physical and mental health. Proper funding would have allowed me to focus on the vision, marketing and salon brand identity, in turn attracting the right talent for my business.

A resource like the Worth Up Alliance can really give young entrepreneurs a huge head start. With so many challenges, so many businesses struggle to open their doors and keep them open. Mentorship and networking with other business owners traditionally is very difficult to do. The Worth Up Alliance provides a safe place to network and learn from the industry’s best.

You have to be really tenacious and resilient to make it. There will always be people telling you that you can’t do it, that what you are doing isn’t good enough or just generally trying to bring you down with their negativity, but you can’t let them break your spirit. You have to keep going.
