We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Roster and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Eric, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
Well. I would have to say just making the decision to actually initiate the first step.

A lot of the time people do have high hopes, various dreams, and many goals in mind, but the fear of failing at something or starting something and potentially not liking it anymore kind of discourage one from actually stepping out of their comfort zone and taking that leap of faith.

So with that being said I say this, the most important decision I made that contributed to my success was simply me being afraid of failure, but me being even more afraid of missed opportunities on the behalf of me not taking a leap of faith on my intuition and ambition.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am Eric Roster aka “Eric TheBrand”.

I am in the process of becoming a Licensed Clinical Aesthetician, I have about 6 more months to go before I am state board certified and cleared to work with my license in any state in the US. I am building my clientele from ground up using social media platforms and mutual entrepreneur references, while undergoing a complete social media rebranding to coincide with my new upcoming business and brand.

I am also carry the background of a highly experienced male commercial & runway model. But recently with juggling school and work on the side, I took a small time off from taking any future modeling gigs until I graduate later this summer.

I am extremely excited about graduating of course, debuting my website and soon after launching a few products from my very own cosmetic skin care line. While later on down the line merging my modeling business into a sponsorship for my cosmetic line.

I would like for the people of the world to know this about my story, my story can become anyone of your stories. All it takes is a little drive, determination and taking the first step!
