And I love it!
I was made redundant from my office job about two years ago and struggled to find another job. I learned to cut and style hair years ago at college but only ever did it for fun for family and friends.
So one day when I was REALLY fed up with trying to get work, I thought to myself…
“Why not create my own job… doing something I really enjoy too?!”
I had literally nothing to lose, so I decided to give it a go. However, my first question was:
“How do I get started?”
Like most people I did a little research on the Internet, and I found this book (if you click on it, it will take you to where you can get it):
I skipped chapter one, which is about assessing your motivation. I already knew what I wanted to do; I just didn’t know how to do it.
So onto chapter two, Getting Started…
Tax, business plans… boring! But… necessary, and not as bad as I thought!
My favourite chapters were three and four, which deal with building up my little business and how best to get and keep customers. I still have a little flick through those chapters now and then just to remind myself.
I also found the advice about pricing incredibly useful.
I am now so happy to be working for myself. I love the freedom and independence. Not having to answer to a “boss”… ahhh. Sweet!
If you know how to cut hair and are thinking of starting your own little mobile hairdressing business, this is a great manual to help you along your way.
All the best,
