Don't Let What You Want Be Only A Dream
Posted on October 29 2015
For 10 years I had 2 career dreams in mind. One was to be on a cutting DVD and the other was to travel to all the hair shows educating hair stylists and salon owners. I did everything I thought was right to aline myself with that dream. I started working for a large manufacturer, I moved from the midwest to the east coast where there was more opportunity, I spent week after week driving hundreds of miles in my car and teaching over 75 classes a year, I volunteered my time and did whatever I could do to get myself closer to that dream. I could feel it getting closer everyday but year after year that opportunity just didn't come. There were quite a few times I was ask what my dream was and then never given that chance. The reason I'm writing this isn't because I'm upset about not getting those chances it's because after 10 years and thousands of hours of teaching and listening to Christina tell me that if I'm not happy then I need to change it, I realized the answer to making my dream come true wasn't the obvious one. You can't wait for people or companies to give you what you want you have to go get it. In 2013 I decided to quit waiting for the phone to ring with an opportunity and go get it myself. That's when the very first video was filmed and the beginning of FreeSalonEducation.com began. Over the last 2 years the FSE team including @_stini @thadbolandized @hairestyle @dreaday2289 @iamjustinscott, and I have created over 400 Education videos and grown a community that has over 150,000 subscribers and the most passionate stylists in the industry fueling the fire. I love that everyday I get to wake up and create whatever I want for you guys. The point of this story is that you should not rely on other people to get you where you want to go in anything. Whether it's your salon, a manufacturer, or anything else. Do IT for you Whatever IT is. Don't let what you want be just a dream.
