How Do I Become the Next Vidal Sassoon?

Bonnie Bonadeo | April 3, 2013 | 9:54 AM

It seems that the reality TV world we live in today provides many people with their 15 minutes of fame but few with the lifelong status of being recognized as a game changer or shift master.

How Do I Become the Next Vidal Sassoon?Most of us won't do the due diligence of self-invention like Vidal Sassoon did including some difficult tasks such as learning to speak "proper English" in a manner that was inviting, enthralling and over many years respected.  It was not just his vision and hairdressing skills that made him the Icon we all admire; it was his charismatic approach and authentic style that forced people to follow him.  Sassoon said it best, "if you don't share your knowledge, you lose it."  My other favorite quotes include "When the student is ready the master (or teacher) appears." Buddhist Proverb, or finally Bruce Lee's ,  "a teacher must never impose this student to fit his favorite pattern, a good teacher functions as a pointer; exposing his students vulnerability and causing him to explore both internally and finally integrating himself with his being"

If you can answer the questions, “why you want to become and educator, platform artist or speaker” and you are willing to do the work, attend the trainings and develop your personal brand of authenticity then you have as good a chance as any to become the next iconic person, I can't promise that you will become the next leader like Vidal Sassoon, but here is the opportunity to attend the STAGES program that can bring you closer to developing that version of you,  who is inviting, respected and authentically mastering the art of authentic speaking.

Let's take his legacy to the next STAGE......
