The episode also explores the challenges hairdressers face when transitioning to salon owners without adequate leadership or business training.

    The Myth of success

    The Myth of success

    Hosts David and Cyd delve into a critical discussion about the widespread misconception that everyone can achieve wealth and success through the conventional measures, such as owning a business and making substantial financial gains. David shares a pivotal encounter from an astrology class that questioned the very foundation of the notion that everyone is destined for monetary success and opens up the conversation about the pressures of societal expectations.

    The hosts discuss the differing results among individuals despite having similar resources, highlighting that success might require intrinsic qualities that not all possess. They argue that while coaching and educational programs can provide guidance, they cannot instill the fundamental drivers of success such as resilience, passion, and an innate desire that some may lack.

    Through their dynamic conversation, David and Cyd challenge listeners to reflect on what success really means and whether the paths we follow truly align with our inner capabilities and desires. They underscore that while education and external guidance are invaluable, the core components of success must already reside within an individual.

A little disappointed

Overall it was ok. Nothing ground breaking, mostly pushing to buy their class. My issue comes up when they start in on having to do pedicures in their early days. I get it. Not your thing but I was insulted for anyone that does them for a living. I almost turned it off at that point but they moved on before I reached my phone.

Love love love

I absolutely love this podcast. I am new to the industry and still figuring a lot of things out and learning, and this podcast is so affirming and the change I’ve noticed that this industry needs, granted I’ve only been in it for a year. I have so much to learn and Destroy The Hairdresser is the breath of fresh air

This podcast is life…. love it

I listen to soooo many podcasts this one was a golden pick . I was listening on a trip with my kids in the car and I was laughing so hard they were laughing at me . It’s all relevant as a hairstylist and salon owner for 25 years I can’t tell you how much I related . The delivery was great, nice job guys this is a winning combo of hosts , well done. The penniless podcast was so good can’t wait for the rest of them .
