The holidays are upon us....

and the truth is I am ready for it to be over. The job that pays my bills is driving me nuts. I mean Christmas stuff up two weeks before thanksgiving how lame!!

So it is really easy to get cranky during the holidays but just remember the person in your chair may be just as cranky as you are....make there day a little brighter. Bend over backwards to give all your clients the best service you can. Make there holidays a little better even if that person is just a walk-in.

A thank you, good conversation and a handshake can go a long way!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

here is what is going on....sigh

In a fit of desperation to not only see my wife build her clientele and just see me get to cutting the way I want to I came up with a brilliant idea. The Fresno Bully Rescue is holding an event called "Blues and Bullies" so I contacted them last night and said my wife and I are interested in making a donation for there raffle at this event. They were so stoked!! The wife is donating a certificate for a cut and color and I am donating two certificates for haricuts and they men will also receive a gift pack from a product company.

You know the old saying you need to spend money to make money....sometimes you need to give stuff away to get people in the chair!!

I called my buddy Luis today and asked....If I can get some clients built up could I use his extra chair and he said "Yeah". So it's a step in the right direction. Try to learn as much from Luis as I can....learn as much on my own as I can and just push forward.

Fingers Crossed!!
