Outstanding and Inspiring!!!
The Hair Artist Academy Podcast is such an outstanding podcast! Mz. H2o is such a great host and it was such a pleasure to hear her speak with her mentor Keith L. Brown. There is no doubt that he has had a great impact on her life. Hearing about all of the loss that Keith has endured and still having such a positive spirit and outlook on life is truly remarkable. It taught me that nothing I encounter in life is worth me walking around with my head down or depressed. There are tons of reasons to smile and be happy, I just need to discover and embrace those things in life!
A must listen for any entrepreneur!
I am so happy I came across this podcast. Brenda is funny and so inspirational. I've already learned several business strategies that I'm going to implement in my business. It gives great insight on the world of hair but not just for hair stylists. The hair artist academy podcast is a must listen for any entrepreneur!
I just listened to Seven Marketing Tools to Help You Get More Clients and Customers and I am absolutely inspired! The story Mz.H2o tells about the boy with the box is truly inspiring. These Episodes are helping me so much to learn to follow my dreams and passions and to not let anyone tell you differently. I also learned some ways to gain more customers with my business that I will definitely be trying out. I will be listening to this podcast a lot more.
