A busy mom and entrepreneur, Shannon still wants to feel beautiful!
"I wanted to sign up for this because it's been a long time since I've actually done anything for myself, and it was about time that I did something that reflected myself.
I had some fears.
It's been a long time since I've done anything in front of the camera or anything that involves getting pampered, so I wasn't sure how things would unfold but they went absolutely fantastic.
You absolutely need to do something for yourself and you need to remember that you are beautiful and you are worth it and just go out there and get it done."
- Shannon Kornylo
30 Days of Gorgeous:
A Photography Project in Calgary Featuring the Beauty of Women 35 and Older
Tell me your story, Shannon.
I am currently a Cosmetic Tattoo Artist.
I run my own space out of a salon off 17th Ave SW.
MY goal is career has always been to help others and make them feel good so that is one of the reasons I got into this career.
Having people feel good and walk out feeling better about themselves is very rewarding and I can go home at the end of the day knowing I did what I was meant to do !!
I am also a mom of a very busy 4-year old who loves activities so I run around with him a lot.
But its total fun and every day is an adventure.
So to sum it up I am a busy working mom with her own business!
Why do you want to participate in the 30 Days of Gorgeous?
I would like to participate in this because my life has changed a lot since I did a photoshoot I was competing in fitness at the time.
But now I am a mom of a 4 years old and I have my own business so it's a real 180 from where I was.
Life is about being the best mom, the best business owner, and the best cosmetic Tattoo artist I can be.
Not just about how I look...…. plus when we are running around doing so many things for others and a business we forget to take care of ourselves and we get lost in the everyday happenings of life.
What does being a woman of your age mean to you?
It means everything is going to be OK. With age comes Wisdom I am proud to be a women of this age because I realize I have been given may talents. I gave birth to a beautiful son I breastfeed him I watched him grow and still do, I just think the whole process is a gift and is amazing. We as women are given many many talents as females and I think we should embrace them...….we can do many thing that men can't do and we need to give ourselves more credit for the God given blessing we have.
What is the number one piece of advice you'd tell your younger self?
Go on more adventures...….get out there and travel, explore and don't be afraid to fail ...a learning experience will always follow and guess what it will be OK
What makes you feel beautiful?
I feel Beautiful when I have my makeup on my hair done and rocking outfit to go with it. I love to get dressed up and go out and have a fun evening...the problem is I don't really get to do it because life is well.....busy !
We Forget To Take Care of Ourselves
In her own words, Shannon reminds you that you're worth it and this is a fabulous experience!
