So if you are a creative person at heart and looking to start your own creative business, this is definitely the podcasts for you to listen to.
In true boss teacher style, you have to – I mean really have to hear the funniest thing that has ever happened to her in the classroom. Hint, it has something to do with breaking wind. DWL!!!
She shares how she got the inspiration to start styling hair from as early as 10 years old, how the income from offering hairstyling as a door-to-door services helped to put her through high school and college, why she decided to leave the classroom and turn her side hustle into her full-time business, some of the key business lesson she learned during that process, how she got her first clients, the strategies she uses today that keeps her clients coming back to her, and her best advice for you who really wants to start your own creative business.
