Welcome to Darron's Beauty Shop, the site that's dedicated to educating black cosmetologists, barbers, and beauty & health enthusiasts about how to create wealth from your business and make you look, and feel like a million bucks!
Since there is a powerful unseen force in the atmosphere that tends to cause black people to not educate themselves on
1. creating & running a fun, profitable business and
2. wealth accumulation from that business, I will attempt to be a guiding light.
Why should anyone listen to me? Well In my 30 plus years as a beauty & health professional, I've made some good money, suffered financial loss to the point of bankruptcy, and made it back on my feet again.
It's like my man Dr. Dre says In his song "I been there, done that!"
So on that note, Darron's Beauty Shop will be a your online resource for not only learning the basic principles of running & creating wealth from your business,
but also having "beauty shop talk" about the things I am passionate about like financial literacy, natural health remedies,
our best beauty & heath tips and tutorials that help build your immune system while making you look and feel like a million bucks, so we can go and make a million!
In The Beauty Shop Business School Of Hard knocks, I've Made Plenty Of Mistakes, Now I Can Teach You How To Avoid Them!
*WEALTH BUILDING TIPS FOR THE BLACK BEAUTY SHOP*
1. Create A Business Plan
Creating a business plan is not as hard as you think. Please do not skip this step. Why ? Just think about it. If you were going to take a long trip across the country, you would need to plan it right?
The same thought process should be taken into consideration when staring, running, and planning your business.
2. Have A Passion For Your Business!
Choose a career in the business that you know and love (or that you are willing to find out more about). If you do that, running your beauty shop or any business becomes an easy pleasure instead of work.
3. Learn To Live Below Your Means.
Just because you can afford a Mercedes or Lexus doesn't mean you should buy it. I had to learn that the hard way.
Now I drive this Hyundai Sonata that looks like a Lexus and I invest the difference between a Hyundai payment and Mercedes payment in a decent performing retirement plan mutual fund!
4. Get An Accountant.
Don't be afraid to pay your taxes. Find a account that has experience working with beauty professionals.
Also make sure they know the tax codes of the IRS, State Revenue, and Social Security, trust me, it will save you time, money, and plenty of headaches down the road and you will get money back on your tax returns instead of always paying.
5. Incorporate Your Business.
After you find your accountant, tell them to get your business incorporated. This will protect your assets, home, bank accounts, retirement accounts and other personal property in case you get sued, they can't get your assets and you'll also save a ton taxes!
6. Keep Physically Fit & Consume Organic Foods!
Now what does that have to do with creating wealth you ask? If you don't have your health you won't be able to work and get the wealth.
To be a successful cosmetology entrepreneur, you must work harder and longer than most people who work a 9 to 5.
Work in the beauty shop can be very physically demanding lots of standing on your feet bending your back and doing repetitive motions with fingers and arms. You must preserve and maintain your health physically.
So that means exercise and what we put in our bodies is just as important as what we put on it maintain our beauty and health.
So be sure to check out the health and fitness section where you will find lots of tips on anti aging (yes, scientific evidence proves you can really reverse the signs of aging!), how to replace wretched, unhealthy foods with delicious,
healthy recipes, weight loss help, exercises, motivation, and more!
7. Learn How To Trade & Invest In The Stock Market
Why learn to invest in the stock market? Well at some point during your awesome career, you are going to experience aging and burn out.
You're going to be ready to hang up the ole curling irons and blow dryer for good.
So in order to make sure you can stop working but continue to live your current lifestyle, you will need to learn to invest and trade in stock the market. I can show you how!
8. Do Daily/Weekly Bookkeeping.
Know where your money is going at all times. Back in the day I used to do this with the ole pencil and note pad. Today it's much easier to use some sort of personal bookkeeping software like Quicken. Nothing like being able to produce a profit and loss statement at the push of a button.
9. Get A Website To Promote And Advertise Your Service Or Product & Build Your Brand.
Why? Because if want to be successful, your business must grow. You grow your business by marketing, advertising, and by expanding your products and services.
You should be scheduling at least 2 hours a week for marketing. These things help keep your business running and growing steadily. Your website is how you do it by clicking the image above!
10. Treat People With Kindness And Always Over Deliver!
A professional in the barber and beauty industry must always take heed to the fact that people see you as a expert in your in your field. So be sure to give all clients the number one thing you have to offer, and that is superior service with a smile. Always over deliver, try to give the client more than what they expect.
