BE Essential

Did you listen to my last interview on the BE Series Podcast? I had the honor of interviewing one of my favorite people in this whole world, Donna Waite! I had a big realization during the COVID19 crisis when all “nonessential" businesses had to close. We had to decide whether or not we believed the narrative! Unfortunately, I saw hairdressers and salon owners around the world begin believing they are "not essential."I heard an incredible story recently from a salon owner.

BE Positive

This week I released TWO episodes on The BE Series Podcast and one was #81 BE Positive with Terri and Steve Cowan! Terri said this powerful statement, "when your team understands the whys it makes them wise."As we start opening our businesses again, we need to remember how important it is for our teams to buy into our visions.

You see the vision for re-opening before your team does, and you probably actually like change. But you have to remember that (most likely) your team only sees the way things were. They are probably longing for the 'good ole days' and may...

BE a Hustler

My latest podcast episode on The BE Series Podcast was #80 BE a Hustler with Stephanie Kocielski, and it was so inspirational! After miraculously coming through brain surgery—not being able to see out of her right eye, comb her own hair, and look in the mirror to notice that her head was shaved with a big scar, all she could remember before being rushed to the hospital was just being on stage at a hair show event.Stephanie said, "when you're looking to become more, it's time to inventory yourself." After her crisis she wrote down what she thought she was great at, and then she...
