ROOTED Q & A 

ADVICE FOR YOUNG PROFESSIONALS STARTING OUT.

A: DON'T GET OVER WHELMED WITH TRYING TO BE THE BEST AT ANYTHING IN SCHOOL, YOU WILL BE RETRAINED IN YOUR FIRST SALON, HOPEFULLY. INSTEAD FOCUS ON DEFINING WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT TO DO IN THIS INDUSTRY, WHO DO YOU WANT YOUR CLIENTS TO BE, WHERE DO YOU WANT TO WORK, WHERE YOU FIT IN BEST ETC. SO INSTEAD OF SPENDING MONEY ON YOUR HAIR EDUCATION WHILE IN SCHOOL, I WOULD FLY OUT TO A TOWN YOU WANT TO WORK AT FOR A WEEK AND GO SHADOW IN THE SALON YOU WANT TO WORK AT TO TRY IT OUT, I WOULD BOOK A FEW SESSIONS WITH A BEAUTY INDUSTRY LIFE COACH / CAREER COACH AND HAVE THEM LISTEN TO WHAT YOU LOVE DOING, WHO YOU ARE ETC AND SEE IF THEY CAN HELP YOU ANYLZE WHAT AREA OF THIS INDUSTRY WOULD BE BEST FOR YOU, YOU CAN TALK TO FRIENDS TOO BUT WHEN YOU PAY SOMEONE THEY WILL TYPICALLY WORK HARDER TO FINDING AN ANSWER FOR YOU AS WELL AS ARE EQUIPPED WITH DIFFERENT EXERCISES AND HOMEWORK FOR YOU TO DO TO HELP BRING CLARITY. INVEST TIME INTO BECOMING MORE SELF AWARE, YOU WILL BE TAKING HAIR WORKSHOPS FOR THE REST OF YOUR CAREER AND THERE ARE ENOUGH FREE ONLINE EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS TO CALM YOUR HAIR CLASS ITCH. CLARITY IS A POWERFUL THING TO HAVE WHEN STARTING ANYTHING.    

ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL CHALLENGES YOU FACED AS A MAN OF COLOR IN THIS INDUSTRY?

A: POSSIBLY, BUT I DON'T FOCUS ON THAT, ON TOP OF BEING A MAN OF COLOR, I ALSO HAVE A VERY ECCENTRIC STYLE SO I'M SURE THAT TURNS AWAY SOME CLIENTS. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE DOESN'T LIKE ABOUT YOU SO YOU HAVE TO DECIDE HOW MUCH YOU CARE AND HOW FLEXIBLE YOU ARE WILLING TO BE. *IF YOU EXPOSE YOURSELF TO A GLOBAL AUDIENCE THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO WIDEN THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO APPRECIATE YOUR esthetic.

WHAT DO YOU WISH SOMEONE WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU FROM DAY ONE STARTING OUT IN SCHOOL ABOUT THE BUSINESS?

A: TO STUDY SOCIAL MEDIA CLOSER BEFORE I ENTERED THE INDUSTRY. IF I WOULD HAVE APPLIED THE EFFORT AND TECHNIQUES THAT I KNOW NOW ALONG WITH KNOWING WHAT AN IMPACT SOCIAL MEDIA WOULD BE, I WOULD HAVE MORE LEVERAGE TO ACHIEVE MY GOALS FASTER WITH MORE SPONSORS.

Hello Stephanie, the answer to your question is an easy one in my case. At this point in my life my priorities are clearer to me then ever before. I live a very selfish life right now. I wake up and go to sleep thinking, working & developing out my career & my personal goals, my my my my. When I have kids, my child will rise to the top of my priority list. I plan to build up the Mitchell Cantrell brand as well as the Rooted Thoughts educational platform. I plan to focus the next 5 years on building up two solid sustainable businesses. I don't plan on selling my companies within the next 5 years so I will still be busy, but I will need to arrange a team that can help me run the business so I can be available to my kid. -A shift in priorities.
