Emily Mahan began her journey in the beauty industry in 1984 when she attended beauty school during her high school junior year through a vocational program. In 1985 she graduated high school and simultaneously acquired her New Jersey state cosmetology license. She immediately went to work as manager for one of her family owned salon business in Atlantic City NJ where she worked for 17 years before flying solo and opening a boutique salon she named Salon Shampu in 2000.
In 2009 she was introduced to Motives Cosmetics through the CUSTOM BLEND FOUNDATION division. She thought it was a genius concept because it would allow her to add an exclusive service to her salon menu, earn over 200% profit, and create residual income through customer reorders and service retention. Her entrepreneurial spirit left her wanting to learn more about the business behind the brand. In 2011 she attended her very first International Conference in North Carolina and had never looked back! She began to build her organization focusing on sharing the business plan with salon owners and beauty professionals. In 2013 the MOTIVES ONLINE PARTY was introduced and she was asked to share her success with the new virtual marketing tool with the field on stage along side Motives creator Loren Ridinger. The experience inspired her to use her education background to become a Motives Trainer and empowering others to do the same!!! Nothing is more gratifying then helping others achieve their goals!
