When I think of my future career as a stylist, my skills and abilities to create great work doesn’t make me nervous — that aspect comes naturally to me. Plus, I know that I’m getting great training and that practice makes perfect. However, one thing that always caused hesitation is my lack of confidence when it comes to the business side of the industry — how to set my prices, how to create a plan for financial success, how to network, how to ensure clients will return to me, etc. Being a truly successful stylist is about more than just doing good hair, so the Prosper U program is such an important tool. I know when I’m ready to graduate from Metro, I’ll be more prepared than the average cosmetology graduate because of the extra training I’m receiving from Prosper U.
