I was writing out some ideas in my journal of a few things that have helped me - and others - from my experience with Curly Hair Artistry, as well as, Cultivate Your Curls. If you are in our Facebook community go watch the FB Live I did earlier today as it covered around 6 topics that are addressed here as well:
1) Routine & Systems - reduce fear and anxiety. When you do not know what to do, learning a system reduces that anxiety to gain knowledge.
2) Practice - when you learn (for example) The MAP Method you learn a system to PRACTICE and over time (like a 30 day challenge) you learn to make something work for you.
3) Guide through frustration - the beauty of our community is seeing a lot of success stories and recommendations - but what helps us the most is someone posting something they are frustrated with and we guide you through it. Many businesses frown upon frustrations - we in our community welcome it!
4) Its better than you think - this is...
Hairstylists are in a huge industry to choose what to do that have so many paths of opportunity to pursue. We have options of working in a team based salon, on our own as a booth renter, as an educator or pursue a path in the fashion or entertainment world working on all types of hair.
If you were to look at our industry as a whole - its global. This is HUGE. When you start to see the small areas that you can specialize in - and most are NOT seen or heard about as these niches are not found or headlining at Trade Shows. They are not discussed in Cosmetology school. You have to almost ‘accidentally’ find them and once you do you kick yourself for not finding it sooner.
But there is such a thing as Perfect Timing.
If you are reading this now - I bet you are sensing this as anticipation stirring for helping you out of boredom, stagnation and even financial debt (as these were mine back in the day).
This blog deals with the wavy &...
This is an important program that I want to share with friends in our circles as with what has happened from it over time has produced some amazing results.
I want you to be in on it as well - when you are ready.
First off - we have an assessment to take that will reveal where you are at and what you want to do with the upcoming year. CLICK HERE for this assessment and please realize that I will take on no more than 20 people at this time for coaching/mentoring but also realize that this assessment will give YOU a gauge with where you are at, where you want to go and what is needed to get what you want done and what is needed to do so.
If you are interested in being one of twenty people I personally work with coming up for 2019-2020 - check out THIS LINK. Helping others to achieve things greater than I have brings me personal joy and helping you to do the same can be a reality with this coaching program offer that I have for you. What is sweet is that it will only...
I recently wrote a Facebook post welcoming some new people to my business page (Scott Musgrave Hair) and I was fascinated at what we discussed with what everyone does to cultivate & feed their soul outside of working on their hair. Once you learn to manage your hair you can move on to more important things in life.
Some people were avoiding things in life BECAUSE of their hair - but once your confidence in working with your hair (with The MAP Method) you can stop searching & wasting money on products and resources. This leaves you with time and money for LIVING LIFE!
Here are some of the replies that I think anyone of us can use as an idea of what to do coming up this weekend or even during the week:
- Photography & walking in nature taking photos.
- Riding horses - go on a guided trail.
- Gardening - starting a seasonal garden - visit a garden center.
- Teaching someone that needs your experience - mentoring.
- ZipLine - face...
Good day everyone!
Working with people day in and day out we discover many fascinating things that people are doing in their profession. Their passion for what they do is contagious and exciting!
When you start hearing stories of how people are transformed by what they are doing - it is something we want to share with the world of how they are contributing to making a difference in their region of the globe.
First mention is Colie Taico (click name for info). She is a therapist and specializes in a couple of areas including helping women heal their relationship with food.
If you are in Cultivate Your Curls she is in the section of how to get multiple day hair (of which has helped many people to relearn how to work with day 2-3-4 hair).
Colie works with clients one on one and is taking her years of experience and is creating an online course that will reach others that can not sit with her privately. Sign up HERE to get on her list.
She is also on...
Hairstylists - good day to you!
Our industry leads the way with teaching us about two ways to make money - and it starts out with Cosmetology School and is reinforced as you attend Trade Shows:
From this you can 'sell' products and heat tools to 'help' them at home to recreate your work.
From here we learn other options as we progress in our career to fill our schedule in the salon and make a paycheck:
Some of these are options that a client wants and desires.
But NOT every time.
And these options are expanding outside of traditional trade shows, cosmetology school and in salon trainings.
Beyond the limits of this antiquated business model are new opportunities that are not...
Good day everyone - what happens in about a week or two both in Curly Hair Artistry and also Cultivate Your Curls?
Let us give you a peek....
Did you see Danielle's quick Facebook Live about expanding on something we address in the online course Cultivate Your Curls about Options & Possibilities (O&P)?
It was powerful!
We shared an article that went out on Instagram about Scott Musgrave: Founder of Curly Hair Artistry from a leading salon publication (Modern Salon) that quoted him and also got a reply back from a salon we did a Live Training at in Raleigh NC that is excelling in their region from what they learned - check out this quote:
While we were in Portland Maine a local YouTuber Pete Talbot did a chat with Scott and it went viral with a fun run of local scenery, food and light houses:
This was the mention in Modern Salon that was shared by Scott on Instagram @scottmusgravehair:
Take a peek at our CHA Live Education Team - well, its sideways AND...
As a teacher I am fascinated with how other teachers fill their students minds with the curriculum or area of interest and I realized that some teachers teach a perspective that they personally learned about - which is called a Subjective Experience but they are teaching it as an Objective Truth.
When you experience something and it works for you and you share it as a way of working for everyone else - you are a bit misguided in how to instruct others.
If you share your experience as 'truth' for others it can become confusing to many of your students as what you are teaching is not applicable to everyone but they feel as though they are out of your 'club' by not agreeing with it or it just does not work for them. I have heard that people in those circles are shamed or belittled by 'not trying hard enough' or 'not doing it right'.
Instead of the teacher saying, 'This is not applicable to you." - their students are made to feel as though they are doing something...
