Welcome to a How To Cut It ‘Classic Rerun’ with Niall Colgan. Delving deep into our extensive podcast libraries, our Classic Rerun’s bring you some of our most popular episodes since we launched back in 2017.

Originally published in September 2019, this episode with Niall is our second highest download of all time. And for good reason! Niall’s story he shared then was what I described as a ‘podcast blockbuster’.So be prepared. You’re about to hear is one of the most powerful, emotional and hard hitting stories that we have ever brought you over the last five and half years!

An incredible comeback story, you’ll hear how Niall seemed to have it all. Enjoying great success, before the cracks began to show, I guarantee that you’ll all be hanging on every last word Niall shared with us back in 2019.

In 2009 Niall opened Niall Colgan Hairdressing, and in his very own words said,  “I was flying by the seat of my pants, and with no clue on how to be a leader”! With this pressure he ended up having a total breakdown in October 2013, followed by a suicide attempt when it appeared that he had lost both his business and young family.

Hitting rock bottom was the turning point for Niall to rebuild his life. At the time of recording in 2019 he was 6 years into sobriety and with his partner Melie by his side and two young sons, Niall has gone from strength to strength.

Niall is truly inspirational. Listen in to hear his words on recovery from the depths of being rock bottom, and how he’s rebuilt both his life and thriving salon business out of a hard working ethic and huge passion for hair.
