For this episode, we have brought back onto the show Ricky Walters, founder of the head turning SALON64 in Soho.
Ricky is never afraid of breaking from tradition and coming up with original ideas. Something he is continually doing at SALON64. He is passionate about finding ways to combine the benefits of full-time employment and freelance work, and he believes that mentoring and growing is an essential part of making it work.
For years, the only option was to become an employed assistant, hoping to grow into an employed hairdresser while building a client base. But now, some hairdressers are taking an innovative approach and pursuing freelance work instead. By doing something different, they can work on their own terms and explore new creative avenues, while building their reputation.
But Ricky is to reveal in our conversation on why freelancers are discovering they’re not quite as ‘free’ as they had first thought. Also he shares on when meeting and speaking with the freelance community he learned one of the main struggles and something they felt missing as a freelancer is a lack of a mentor. They were crying out for a mentorship style of working to motivate, inspire and drive results.
Thats why SALON64 has created a brand new role by taking all the benefits of being employed, and the benefits of being freelance and blending them into the next age and the future of hairdressing. A future of providing mentoring and growing individuals.
So, if you’re looking for a new way of working that offers the best of both worlds, why not consider this brand new way of working? And remember, mentoring and growing is an essential part of making it work. Enjoy!
