    66. Spending time with Nina Kovner

    66. Spending time with Nina Kovner

    Welcome Nina Kovner to the Podcast!
    The Short Story… Mostly for Show Brochures and Trade Magazines
    From the shampoo room to the boardroom, Nina L. Kovner took the world of pro beauty by storm with her thoughtful attention to detail and never-ending tenacity.  After 26 years of conquering obstacles in an ever-changing business landscape and helping to build one of the most recognized professional haircare brands in the world, they respectfully walked away from a career at the top to help small business owners and artists discover and live their purpose with passion and empower their businesses. Now, as Chief Awesomeness Empowerer at Passion Squared, they wake up every morning saying to themselves… “How I am going to help people create awesome today?”
    The Real Story… In My Own Words
    From the shampoo room to the boardroom. A Cinderella story so to speak. At least it was someone’s Cinderella story.
    I discovered beauty school in 1987, and found my passion and what I thought was my purpose. I became the best shampoo girl ever, at least in my mind I was, at The Falls Salon in Falls Church, Virginia, and worked there as a stylist for a few years. To this day that was one of my fave jobs in the beauty biz.
    In the late 80′s, I got my dream job as a Paul Mitchell educator and Brand Manager at Davidson Beauty Supply, my first introduction to the business of beauty. What an amazing education I received.
    At the age of 24, I was named Regional Sales Director for the Southwest United States for Paul Mitchell. I had arrived!
    The Career College Association inducted me into their Hall of Fame, the first beauty school graduate to ever be inducted. Yes, they let me speak to Congress at the age of 25. Awesome.
    In early 2000, I was named VP of Marketing for Paul Mitchell, and had the honor of working with and for the best people in the biz, including my mentors and heroes John Paul DeJoria and Luke Jacobellis.
    In 2006, I was accepted into the UCLA Anderson School Executive Management Program, only one of two hairdressers ever to be accepted. I learned so much in those 9 months, and even became President of my class. I was honored and humbled to sit side by side with rocket scientists, engineers and really super smart people.
    In 2009, I graciously walked away from an awesome career of 26 years.
    Discovering my WHY You may be thinking; are you crazy?  You walked away from the best company and career in the world? Yes I did.
    The truth is I was dying inside. I loved my company and the people I worked with, but there was a big hole in my heart. My outsides did not match my insides. And I learned the hard way, it catches up with you, eventually. At least that is my truth.
    I realized my true passion was to empower those I love through sharing my journey and experiences, the real world shit that mattered to me. I needed to speak my truth.
    Like many in our world, nothing has ever come easy to me. I am dyslexic, ADD, and lovingly battle anxiety on a daily basis. But none of that has stopped me from living, dreaming and pursuing my passion and purpose.
    Today, I know deep in my soul I am here to help people discover and live their purpose with passion and use that to empower others and their businesses. Just like I have.

    63. Salon Owner and Leadership Tips - Odette Scacco

    63. Salon Owner and Leadership Tips - Odette Scacco

    Welcome to the podcast Odette Scacco. I met Odette many years ago when she selflessly mentored me through opening my salon and was there for me from afar through many ups and downs. Its great to have salon owner friends and people to turn to and Odette was that person for me especially through owning my employee based business. In this episode she offers many tips about salon ownership and leadership that have helped her build her successful long time salon in Connecticut!
    About Odette:
    "As a stylist of 25+years and Business Owner of 20, I can honestly say that I love what I do today as much as when my career began. Owning my own salon has allowed me the opportunity to not only build a team of professional, talented and creative stylists, but also to keep our clients our top priority. In building a great team, I believe in leading by example. I stay current in all aspects of hair design and coloring, and I am a Goldwell Certified Master Colorist. It's been a busy few years, since I opened the doors of Salon Odette, but I have enjoyed every minute of it! I invite you to come and experience why we have been a top salon in our area for many years. Hope to see you soon!" - via https://www.salonodette.com/odette

    62. Radically Curly and Kind with Danielle Green

    62. Radically Curly and Kind with Danielle Green

    this weeks episode is centered around Danielle Green, owner of Radically Curly in Las Vegas, activist and so much more. I enjoyed building a closer relationship to Danielle during this episode and know you’ll enjoy!
    About Radically Curly from Danielle Green VIA Radically Curly’s website:
    Radically Curly was initially created to help heal generations of wounds caused by shame and abuse of natural hair. I understood that naturally curly hair wasn’t taught in beauty school and that fueled the fire under my feet to make a change in the beauty industry. It wasn’t easy. I saw the problem decades ago and knew that people that looked like me and had hair like mine were not getting the same treatment in the chair as someone who had straight hair. I made it my mission to change that narrative. I wanted people with curly hair to feel welcomed and empowered from the moment they arrive until they leave. Radically Curly became the first salon in Las Vegas to specialize in curly hair. People travel from around the world for our services and we are forever grateful. Our purpose is being fulfilled each day. You can trust with your curly hair no matter what type or texture. See you soon.
