Roughly 8 weeks ago we opened our doors of the shop and unveiled our renovations & our newest concept, "The Custom Coil Bar."
It has been a whirlwind of emotions.
First there is a little fear factor of , " Will people come?" "Will people support the idea" " How will I make money by decreasing my clientele?"
All of those thoughts dripped in anxiety & the unknown were present.
Since we have been open, I can count on one hand customers who have entered our space and "have not " purchased anything.
I have been pleasantly surprised with our "original customers"who have continued to pass through the doors as well as, all the new customers who have just "discovered us."
LaMonte Cooper dropped in with his beautiful family. LaMonte has been one of our customers since we opened the doors in 2008.
No matter what phase you are in life, career, relationships, etc, new opportunities always yield some type of fear. My advice is "Follow your Soul, It knows the way."
To yield to the fear, is the easy thing to do. It's easy to stay in your comfort zone. It's easy to be complacent and blame exterior influences for the reasons that you are not thriving in the areas mentioned above.
Follow your Soul, It Knows the Way.....
Even at this stage in my life sometimes moments exist of self doubt, however, I encourage you to believe that whatever you truly desire is meant for you. The same energy that you allow yourself to wallow in self doubt, just pivot that energy of self doubt to self actualization.
As I said earlier its been a whirlwind of emotions & triumphs. The Good Hair Shop has received a couple awards and I have the opportunity to make some media appearances.
Keep pushing through & get out your feelings and make amazing things happen. You deserve it.

I have had the opportunity to make some media appearances which has led me to the conclusion that headwraps & headphones don't mix.
