This episode is FIRE. 

Today, I’m talking to Lindsay Skinn, a Rock Your Business alumnae and kickass stylist who takes implementation to a whole new level.

I’ve had several guests from small towns on the podcast lately, and the theme continues with Lindsay! She lives on a dirt road and her house doesn’t have WiFi (she called into this episode from her salon!) and she’s proof that you can totally be a successful stylist in a town where it’s normal to see a horse and buggy ambling down the road.

One of the most amazing things about Linsday is that she actually grew her business during quarantine. The coronavirus pandemic has hit our industry hard, but Lindsay took that opportunity to switch things up and build a solid foundation for growth! 


Here’s what you’ll get in this episode:

  • Lindsay’s story and how she pulled off such a massive career change from early childhood educator to hairstylist.

  • Why it’s CRUCIAL to find the right salon to work with you and help you grow.

  • How she made online courses work with no home WiFi, and what made her decide to invest. (Also, she joined in February back when we were all wide-eyed and hopeful about 2020. lol.)

  • The steps she took to grow her business during quarantine so she was ready to rake in the $$$ when she got back. (Plus how she made $2,000 from just TWO consultations!)

  • Major plot twist: How a stylist who’s allergic to hair color still found success. There’s always a way!

  • My secrets to growing a clientele from scratch (AKA how I was booked months in advance within 12 weeks.)

  • Tips for pricing services in a small town (and anywhere, really, but especially in a small town).

  • Feeling like you belong in the industry (plus a bonus Backstreet Boys by Dawn song break).

I loved this conversation so much. I could have talked to Lindsay for hours! She’s a master of possibility and totally embodies the phrase “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” She completely redefines what’s possible as a small town stylist who’s allergic to hair color!

For more Lindsay, make sure to follow her on Instagram or check her out on Facebook!

Sometimes, uncertain times offer amazing opportunities. Never give up! There’s always a way to grow.
