SHOW NOTES: In our ENTREPRENEUR EXPOSE´™ series we explore the reality of business opportunities for "non-traditional" individuals and organizations. By "non-traditional" we are referring to everything outside the traditional concept and stereotype of a person born into a wealthy and/ or powerful family who uses their connections and resources to start a business or join an already successful family firm. For those individuals who think that business success is not possible due to their lack of connections or resources, this is the place where we interview successful people in a variety of businesses who created their own path to success. No matter where you born, your family of origin, your age, ethnicity or any other characteristic, you are a unique individual who can achieve what you desire!
In this episode we have the pleasure of interviewing businesswoman, Barbara Largent. Ms. Largent is the owner of the Baroness Salon in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (thebaronesssalon.com). The salon is located in Las Vegas, Nevada at: 4401 E. Sunset #1, Henderson, NV 89014. Ms. Largent has been in the beauty industry for over 20 years. She shares in this episode her journey from earning minimum wage (then in the $3 USD an hour range) in her first position after completing cosmetology school and gaining her license to now having her own salon and working part time (earning up to $8,000 USD per month). Her family (including her husband, children and grandchildren) is very important to her and she balances her enjoyment from her work with her happiness in her personal life.
In this honest and revealing interview, we found out the real “dirt” on owning a beauty salon in this highly competitive field. Hard work, a focus on long-term client relationships, and ongoing education in the beauty field make it possible to succeed!
