” There is only one thing that makes a dream
Impossible to achieve”:
The fear of failure.
Paulo Coelho ( the alchemist)

Things happen in life, at the beginning, during childhood, which very often can have a massive positive impact on our entire existence in this world.
The best things though, is that knowing what it is we want to do from an early age.
One of the most important aspects of our lives is our work, and for Valerie she dedicates most of her time to it. She lives, sleeps and breathes hairdressings, from every small detail making sure everything is perfect. We, her “team ikon” as she calls us thinks she has slight ocd or to Val cdo.
Val knew from an early age what it was she wanted to do, the rest of us were not so lucky.

When Val was at school, according to her family she had not much intrest in studies but she loves people, she loves helping, and she loves life. So it’s no wonder now a few years later she has two beautiful boys Finn and Jack, her husband Declan, and a thriving business and many many awards, and she is still going.

So here she is in the Joico news magazine that is distributed all over the world.What a great honour!!!! Well done Val there is no stopping you.

Thank you to all the clients for your loyality, and to her wonderful staff for their continued hard work and dedication.‪#‎Goteamikon‬.?And to her family for their love and support.
