About This Episode
In this episode, you’ll hear from Nick the owner of Modern Male Barbershop. Modern Male is a barbershop seeking to bring back the lost art of barbering, and cultivate a place where fathers and sons can come and have the camaraderie that they used to, when the barbershop was a pillar in the community. It’s a place to gather, meet, talk over a root beer or a beer, have a conversation, and leave looking and feeling great.
In the episode you’ll learn:
– How Nick grew from one chair, and one barber (himself) to multiple locations, a barber training school int he works, and an apprentice program.
– Lessons he learned from his business mentor and coach
– How he thinks about creating a place where his customers and his employees are well taken care of
– The need to put in systems and processes to keep growing in a healthy way
– And a ton more…
This may be one of the most “business-focused” episodes I’ve done, so there’s a lot of gold here if you’re a small business owner. If you haven’t gone through the process of developing an employee manual and communicating your vision to your employees, thinking about large-scale employee training, and the like- you’ll enjoy learning from Nick.
