A little emailed popped into my inbox last week to let me know that The Jo Robertson Hair Agency had made the finals of British Hairdressing Awards.
Back in January I made a vision board, where I collected images and words that I wanted to achieve in 2019. I have this placed in my office and I see it everyday, it reminds me to stay focused and work on what is important to me. I never dreamt any of it would come true but so much has!
One of my goals was to finalise for a hairdressing award, this was a pretty big goal and at the time I had not even started my business (I always aim high!).
You know the story of the Hair Agency but what is not told is all the hours of work that I have put in over the last 6 months. As a business the agency is starting to be recognised within the industry and collecting some really amazing names on the site.
So I submitted my entry and hoped for the best..... and then came the email. I wish I could say I was really calm and somewhere elegant but no I was on a hot sweaty bus in Croatia. I gasped and then screamed, I think my husband thought I had been stung by a bee!
Reaching the final of The British Hairdressing Business Awards means so much to me and just shows you that if you put your mind to something, anything is achievable.
What I a trying to say is.....
Less that 6 months ago I left a job and started my own business. I had the support of my friends and family who believed in me. Hard work and self belief does pay off. I can’t wait for the future, there is no need to be scared anymore. Chase your dreams and do what makes you feel happy, life does go on and it’s amazing!
Thank you to all that stood by me and to all the amazing hair educators on the site 😘
Fingers crossed for September.
