In February I posted a blog on how to open a barbershop right, right now. I shared the experiences of a friend who was opening a shop in what was (and still is) a tough economic climate. I outlined what I saw him doing that I believed to be the right things to be doing at the time. It has been six months since he opened. It was time for a visit and an update. I stopped in to see him last week.

Reaching Level 3 requires intense creativity, including portfolio building, story boarding and presentation.
