    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!

SuiteOwner ,

So Needed!!

I have needed a podcast like this for a long time. Especially now as a suite owner like so many, it can feel like we are less interactive with fellow stylists. This podcast serves as a morning pep talk for me often... linking me back into the wider community of my industry and I love it!!
