[First Beauty Freelance Academy] Introduction of class content and supporting companies
*Detailed introduction to the class content of the Beauty Academy to be held in March 2024*
The Japan Beauty Freelance Association (Representative Director: Kazuki Ishihara, Location: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) aims to provide freelancers working in the beauty industry with the necessary knowledge and information in the form of an academy, so that they can work safely as a freelancer. We will start a project to develop them into a state where they can work with care.
* Background of the Academy *
As the number of freelancers working in the beauty industry is increasing, there are also increasing cases of people starting their own businesses without the necessary knowledge/information. You cannot learn specialized knowledge such as purchasing, attracting customers, accounting, etc. at school, and it is an environment where you are forced to become independent without any knowledge. While facing these various issues, there are few environments where people can
learn/re-learn after becoming freelancers. At the Academy, we aim to provide freelancers working in the beauty industry with the necessary knowledge/information on purchasing, customer attraction, accounting, etc., and to develop them into a state where they can work as freelancers with peace of mind.

In addition, by providing a place for real interaction in the form of an academy, we can create horizontal connections between freelancers and share knowledge and information with customers. By doing so, we will eliminate the “feeling of loneliness” that freelancers have and create an environment where they can share their customers.
