It’s not a coincidence that this year’s column begins in February, when every store window in town is filled with the frilly pink hearts of St. Valentine’s Day.

That’s because this article for the new skin therapist isn’t about romance—but truly following your heart.

The next four Good Hands columns—a whole year’s worth—are dedicated to closing the gap, educationally speaking, for skin care professionals. What does this have to do with following your heart? Good question. The answer is that learning also requires passion. Passion comes from the Latin word for “suffering.” It’s true! And while your career as a skin care professional shouldn’t be a shrine to pain, attaining success does require sacrifice and hard choices. Are you ready?
