The Business of Being A Hairstylist | Damien Reyes

The Business of Being A Hairstylist | Damien Reyes

In the break room at his old job, Damien Reyes suddenly found himself in an early midlife crisis. Faced with the dilemma of the future spread out before him, Damien decided to make a change. 

He began his journey at a somewhat unlikely place for a retired truck driver in his late twenties: beauty school. And a few years later, Short Hair Company was born. 

This week on Small Business War Stories, Damien seats us in his hybrid stylist-barber's chair (you'll understand once you listen)...

Three reasons to tune in this week:

  • Learn how a calling to do something new and exciting can be balanced with outstanding responsibilities. 
  • Learn about the incredible outcomes that can come your way, as a businessperson, if you ask for what you want (which Damien did!)  
  • Learn how Damien decided to hedge his bets and invest in himself.
