We live in a the world where you can be anything. This is an introduction to my story and how I developed the skills and life experience that I possess. I have been down dark paths and beaten roads to find the truer essence of life. I haven't fully learned everything, because lets be honest, nobody does, but I am on a path to know as much as I can. Take a listen and see how you resonate with my story and many others.
Call It What It Is
This is the first episode to describe and give detail into what I want to be discussing. It's a little about me, a little about what I've learned, and a little bit about the world that I have surrounded myself in. The topics discussed will be free thinking and with an open discussion. I would love to hear feedback and other opinions on what should be discussed.
Who is 'The Fairy God Barber'?
We all have our own stories and lives that we have lived, many of them can be correlated to one another's. This is a simple context into me and where I have landed. My story isn't worse or better than anyone else, its just unique to me. It is not a definition of who I am, yet a simple synopsis of the events that led up to this current prospect of life. I am deeply passionate about being open and vulnerable, and display that through this episode. Please come in with no expectations and no judgement. Love you beautiful inspirers!
Connection and Value
We all have ways that we connect to other souls and lifestyles. Sometimes we find it difficult to talk to other individuals, but in this industry we must learn ways to overcome that. In episode 3 I discuss ideas on how I can relate and connect to new clients and maintain them as returning clients. I also give insight on how to stay connected with those returning clients. What is their value and what is our worth. We must always be mindful of their time and value as much as we value our own worth. Take a step into the atmosphere that I have created with the special people who sit in my chair.
Listening and Discovering
In episode 4, I talk to Malarie Reddoor, who is such an amazing being and soul. We use to work together 4 years ago, and she was a big inspiration for me to get back into doing hair. She is also a barber here in Salt Lake City, which means that we are already creating a community of like minded individuals. I love her story and what she represent, and I think you will love this journey we take through her lessons and experiences.

Motivation talks with Bri
In this episode, Bri Bri and I dive into a realm of learning from the past and being able to look towards the future. Seeing how the things she held valuable at one time were actually not what she truly wanted. She gives her story and some insight on the industry and how she balances her own spirituality.
I get the lucky opportunity to talk to my best friend, Jordan (@chocolategaga) Wilkinson on Juneteenth! He's black, he's gay, and he's a little weird, thats why I love. We discuss his life, his growing up, and how he tried to fit in. We also talk about the Supreme Court, Stonewall, and of course, Black Lives Matter. Grab a glass of wine, grab a snack, and listen to 2 best friends discuss some real, uncomfortable stuff!
