One, two, three— there is a power in three. This year, I am so excited to be traveling throughout the United States sharing ideas that use the power of three to build business, connect to our communities and go viral. From three quick powerful social media ideas to three powerful business models that work for salons and three unique ways to address guests.

So, it's been a month and a half since we moved into our new Home/Creative Space/Salon and it has been amazing. So far, we have fixed one toilet by not using it, one shower by not using it, we have woken with no heat twice- and that's just the beginning of what is truly a dream.

With great hope, we set out to find a new home where I could have a creative center to shoot pictures and videos, a studio to care for guest’s hair and a guest suite so stylists could come to train with us - a tall order, but we were looking for a dream.

As hairdressers, like chefs, photographers, artists, models, clothing designers, actors and many other professions, the perception of fame can be the difference between good and great.

This past weekend, I had the honor of sharing ideas at the ARROJO EXPO, and while there shot a picture at night outside my window, posted to Facebook and had this reply, “Amazing...but even more amazing your room is paid for and so is your time.... You are considered successful ... Remember when you paid to go everywhere?!”

When I was doing the Goldwell/KMS/Arrojo On Tour in NYC, one of my favorite people, Maggie Mulhern, asked me what my favorite movie was as a professional hairstylist. I had two answers at the time – “Vidal Sassoon: The Movie” and “Unzipped” (the Isaac Mizrahi movie) both for different reasons.
