Jan Arnold, cofounder and style director of CND, is currently on a mission to support fellow beauty entrepreneurs and elevate the state of the beauty industry through speaking engagements nationwide. Most recently, Arnold captivated audiences at AMI’s CEO Success Network Retreat in San Diego in August and the NIC 2016 Conference in Tampa, FL, earlier this month. In a further effort to support up-and-coming beauty talent, Arnold has donated proceeds to the Beauty Changes Lives (BCL) Foundation, which provides scholarships for the next generation of beauty and wellness professionals. “CND is always looking for ways to elevate the Nail Professionals who help clients look and feel their best,” says Arnold. “By providing quality education and guidance to emerging talent, we are proud to help the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation support and celebrate next-gen talent.”
Having worked to take CND from family business to global brand status for the last 30 years, Arnold was also chosen to speak at a retreat hosted by Allison Maslan International (AMI), which is a coaching agency devoted to helping entrepreneurs grow highly successful companies that change the world. At the retreat, Arnold explained how to stay ahead of the competition using innovation, leadership, collaboration, and drive. Arnold also joined members of the National Interstate Council of State Boards of Cosmetology this month for its annual conference to discuss the latest issues facing the cosmetology industry as a whole. During this conference, Arnold shared her passion for education and dedication to the professionals. With plans to continue her efforts in the months ahead, Arnold is committed to raising additional funds for BCL, as well as inspiring entrepreneurs around the world.
