Why Sometimes You Need a Professional: A Lesson Learned from My Hair Disaster

UGH. After weeks and weeks of procrastinating, I finally got a box of blonde hair dye and took the plunge to go back to platinum… It was box dye - how hard could that be?! I had done it before. I followed the instructions. I was confident.

Two hours later, I had beautifully-colored orange hair. Not soft ginger, not lovely cowboy copper, nope. I went day-glo. It was the shade of a Sesame Street character. And I was appalled.

And I got to wake up the next morning and face Ernie-and-Zoe-toned locks. 😣

So I had to admit it. I could not do this on my own. I needed a professional. And that is a sad fact. I hated facing it. Hated it. But it is absolutely true.

And it’s true for all of us. We cannot do everything well, sometimes we need a professional to help in some capacity. It may not be to take over, but maybe it is just advice. And that is what we try so ardently to address for all of the small business owners out there struggling: sometimes you need a professional to help. We can be that professional (and it helps that we are kind of nice people). ;)

We want to help businesses succeed. And we can, by offering advice, reworking websites, or showing you what to look for to move to the next level. Marketing is like a secret weapon that can transform your business into a booming success. But, let's face it, it can be a tricky game to play if you're not a pro. Thankfully, there are plenty of resources out there to help you learn the ropes. But, if you really want to take your brand to the next level, you might want to consider hiring a marketing mastermind. They know how to boost your brand, connect with your audience, and skyrocket your sales. They'll identify what's working and what's not and create a tailored plan to fit your business like a glove. Trust us, investing in a marketing pro will pay off big time in the long run.

Because sometimes you just need help.

I am happy to report that my hair is no longer day glow orange, thanks to a little help from professional.
