    The Independent Stylist with Lynzie Smith

    The Independent Stylist with Lynzie Smith

    As an independent artist there is so much more that goes into it than the feeling of freedom and a curated instagram. It takes hard work, dedication and it can feel super lonely sometimes.
    That's why Lynzie started The independent Beaty Pros to help connect other independent stylists and help other stylists grow.

    We're talking about what the difference between going independent vs. working in a commission salon, and how to create meaningful connections that can help grow your business.

    What are you waiting for? Press play!

What I needed to hear

I’m not a hairstylist, but I am a really busy mom and full time ER nurse. I listened to the episode on “Burnout” on my commute to work and it was exactly what I needed to hear. Overall, great advise and tips on maximizing your time and how to find joy in the things you do. Thanks!
