Starting at the age of 19, Katie Godfrey had no plans on how to build her business. While she was brought up in Luton, Bedfordshire with her incredible family, she was bullied at school. As a result, Katie decided to quit school at the age of 13 and went on to become a model. However, she did not give up on learning. While she continued to work as a model, she also spent her free time learning new things and researching on opening up a business. Thus, at the age of 18 she opened up her first business, a model agency but then just a year later, she went on to launch her main business, KG Salon. And even though at this point Katie was sinking under bank loans and debt, she recovered it all as her beauty salon picked up the pace and started growing her customers.
Katie’s work was different from other salons in the district as she was always loyal and sincerely wanted to help her customers out. Through her determination, she soon became one of the first trainers in the UK who went to New York to learn the Russian Volume Lashes technique and came back to teach it. Thus, as the demands to learn from Katie increased she launched her international beauty training academy along with her quality product range under the title of “KG Professional”. Here she sought to help others gain the skills to flourish in the beauty industry so that together, they can raise standards across salons. Today, KG Professional has branches in Bedfordshire, Southampton, Gloucestershire, Derbyshire, Milton Keynes, Sussex, and Essex while having their eyelash range being sold globally.
As Katie’s incredible success is inspiring for many who hope to grow their business, she also mentors those rising in the hair and beauty industry through another branch of the KG brand, KG Business Mentor, where she looks over 35 salons to help its owners create strong teams and achieve freedom. She also hosts regular podcasts under the name “The Life Of KG” where along with sharing her own stories and challenges, she invites other experts in the industry so that she can expand her reach.
Katie’s achievements are inspiring considering where she started from and how without any kind of qualifications she has built a successful business. Thus, she is a perfect example of the idea that with dedication and hard work, anything is achievable.
