Waking Up From Work

Communicating & Creating A Culture w/ Stay True Barbershop

February 25, 2019

This week, the guys had the pleasure of being on site at Stay True Barbershop in Nashua. During this episode, the guys were able to have a conversation about the ins and outs of barbering from an interesting perspective. They were joined by shop owner; Corey Holt, shop manager; Kaleb Dunn, and fresh-faced (and bearded) barber; Aaron Lee. The difference in perspective and personality from each of our guests represented what Stay True is all about; Who you are and what that brings to the table...Also, movie quotes... lots and lots of movie quotes. A trade, a service, and a work of art? The barbering world has many lessons to teach about marketing, clientele management, and the power of social interaction. There is more to barbering than just a mere haircut. Check out more in this weeks episode.
