Time Investment Pitfalls

I'm currently in a Barbershop where I've worked for over ten years. My services have always exceeded expectation in fear of failure. Recently it was said to me by the Owner of the Barbershop that ( He feels some type of way towards me in that all the clients ie. customers wait for me and he's the one who owns the shop!) while he chose not to let the grass grow under his feet, I inadvertently became the face of the shop, meaning, I assumed responsibility in his absence. I feel stuck and I'm not… Continue

We work in a awesome industry!

     Hey everybody! its 2014 and we just had our first installment of Bronner Brothers Int'l hair show Atlanta edition. I share this post on the heels of returning from this event for the second time as a spectator.

Other Levels

Realize that this industry isn't just about cutting hair, it's about being a pillar of the community it's about being a businessperson. I've been to plenty of barber workshops and noticed that just about all of the barbers at these workshops have products. From t-shirts to shaving gels, I get so hyped up from just seeing it I put together my own t-shirts, hair oil and website. I recommend that every barber look into different things with taking your business to another level. Stand out from… Continue

IS BARBERING JUST SOMETHING YOU DO?

Good afternoon family. Today I had a discussion with a fellow barber about the difference between a customer vs. a client. How can we as barbers turn more customers that come into our shops into regular clients? This led to the topic of the level of professionalism in our industry.

I mean, you worked to get that license, didnt you?…
