Over the course of two decades barbering, I have watched the “not so good/skilled” barber earn up to four times their barber schooling investment within the first calendar year by simply working in their field. Now, to that point, I've also watched those same barbers remain stagnant. Most of the time, their lack of growth was directly connected to a lack of desire to continue learning about things inside or outside of their career choice that would help them grow (whether it be with finances, clientele, etc.)
The earlier you invest in seeking experienced knowledge, the sooner you will begin to develop better daily habits of success. A student who has taken the time to seek education outside their everyday schooling, studies, using DVDs, continuing education courses and more will be far more advanced in their career than someone waiting to be taught a lesson. The greatest mentors in the world are the ones who can receive wisdom and apply it! The most commonly ignored type of mentorship is self-mentoring. Reading, studying, watching & learning from individuals who have already experienced the goal you’re trying to achieve will help put you in a position to reach the success you desire at a more rapid and steady pace than the trial and error road.
It’s tough to see things from the outside in when we’re so used to being on the inside looking out but the good news is, with the advancement of technology and the unlimited amount of resources to further your education, we have the future of our careers in the palm of our hands Things like online courses, videos tutorials, and even corporate lectures are available to us at anytime. These are things we can do on our own, but I would also encourage to become connected and/or affiliated to a body of like-minded individuals, colleagues, etc. that will be able to hold you accountable to elevate the bar of your success. You career should be something you love & you should want to continue to educate yourself. A career will never be a job if it's something you love to do. Put yourself in a position today to help better your tomorrow.
