Busy is a great thing for me…it keeps me out of trouble!!! #idlehands I love a full plate, I love the challenge of juggling lots of things and due to my crushing ADHD I need something new going on all the time or I will get bored and inevitably find myself in trouble.  #destruction Each one of these positions feeds a different part of me.  I find so much joy in mentoring bc being a cheerleader for others and helping them find their own success is incredible.  I love EVERY single person that I work with and I want nothing more than to help them reach the top!

I love managing bc I get to spend even more time learning from my own mentor, Joelle which is my dream everyday!!!  She is so wise and so amazing  and super sexy with her glasses on top of her head and I’m thankful everyday that they didn’t fire the over confident asshole that they hired 11 years ago!!! I have learned soooo much from this woman!!!  I have learned that you can have the career of your dreams by having a giving, teaching heart and a fierce business sense all while having the most fun possible.  I have learned about finances, just being honwst with people, being a true leader, forgiveness, allowing people to grow, loving someone enough to have  the tough conversations. #myinterventionist We’ve learned together that the conversation is the relationship…and I’ve loved every conversation with you Joji. Xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo. Joelle sat me down in February and said what I think everyone else had been thinking.  She told me that it would be a shame for me to work this hard and save so much for my future, to not be around to enjoy it.  It hit me like a ton of bricks.  But she knows me so well that she followed it up with humor.  She said it would be a shame to spend your retirement on…a jazzy scooter.  She was so genuine and her words were so heart felt that I knew I had to make a change in my life and get healthy.  She managed to do what no one else could which was confront me about my weight and partying ways.  I had such a hostile vibe protecting my lifestyle that I don’t think anyone but her could have gotten through to me and I’m grateful everyday. Literally ten minutes after this life altering conversation, Jenny came up to me and said that she was miserable and feeling terrible.  This was the final sign to me that a change was eminent.  Thus…Two Meatballs Get Fit  was born.  #grateful

Joelle and my other mentor Jack  whom I learned everything I know about cultivating a lasting relationship with your clients among a thousand other things like what a real gentleman lives his life like, literally everything I know about color came from this man, he has taught me how to grill, appreciate fine wine, scotch and food I never would have tried #sweetbreads, everything I know about golf, how to live everyday bursting with passion and enthusiasm and how to be an incredible educator, he taught me how to fill up a room and captivate an audience;  have let me grow up at Samuel Cole Salon and  have given me the greatest career opportunities and life advice that any girl could ask for.  #gushing #lovemyjoberrrrrrrrrrrryday #thankingmyluckystars #sammiecoleforlife #mybossesarethelivingbest #partofthefam

I love being a hair dresser soooooo much.  Seeing my clients everyday and being so entrenched in their lives and helping people look and feel their best is a dream come true.  I love these people…between my clients, my coworkers and my bosses, they have all become my family and it feels so amazing to be surrounded by people that you truly love. #luckiestgirlintheworld And beyond all of that I loooooooove cutting, styling and most of all COLORING hair.  Which brings me to my last job…being an educator!  This week marked another exciting Color Boot Camp for our current immersion class.

I’ve learned through this process that my strong 2 LOVES making a power point!!!  I mean look at those slides!!!

This 2 day, 18 hour grueling course in all things color is where my passion really shines.  Carolyn and I created this class and it is our child….we are proud parents!

Carolyn is a color genius…she is a chemist and she knows the inner workings of literally everything.  She also teaches one hell of a consultation class and an amazing 5 section foil!

This class has evolved so much since the days of working on Newton or at The Annex!!!  This year we had 5 associates in class. I live for seeing light bulbs go off and watching the AH-ha moment happen.

They learn the art of the consultation, the color wheel, formulation and hands on application!!! This go round we added a new segment of Hair Painting and had a guest educator contribute!!!  Natalie you were AH-mazing!!!

Also, another thing I love about my job is that I work with my living bestie…my other half…my mini meatball Jenny who also happens to be on the education team, a Bumble and bumble Network Educator and part of Color Boot Camp!!!! Jenny is so passionate and talented and her ombre class is always a highlight (get it!?!?!?!)

My strengths lie in communicating effectively with your clients and  color formulation!
