First Guest

Today was an awesome, beyond awesome day! Even though it was a lil rainy this morning, it did not put a damper on my day. We had a guest speaker this morning, Taryn Aiken, a color specialist from the Advanced Academy. She talked about her life mainly and her background, how she was a recovering alcoholic and addict and how Paul Mitchell School and her career saved her life. She had the whole room laughing and crying and she was an inspiration to all. Her stories touched the hearts of not just me, but everyone in the room. It just goes to show, that no matter what we go through in life, we can pick ourselves up and again and move on. We have the support in each other. I could go on forever about her story and my story, but I just wanted to share a small piece of the experience of this morning. Some of us encouraged her to start a youtube channel, so maybe she will.

Another exciting thing about today was that I had the first guest in  my chair today! I really wasnt nervous especially after my inspirational morning, so I greeted my guest and followed the steps I was taught. I had a guy come in for a male haircut. I shampooed and conditioned and began my cut with the help of my learning leader and before I knew it, I was done! I am so glad I didnt have a bad experience for my first cut! I didnt get any pictures (my camera was dead). I even got my first tip of $5. Not sure if I want to frame cheesy huh?

well, just wanted to share parts of my day! Thanks for stopping by!

Do what you love and the money will follow.
