Episode 37. Caz Bargery. How Rapid Transformational Therapy can help business owners
Caz qualified as a Hypnotherapist & Rapid Transformational Therapist (RTT) having been trained by the world renowned leader Marisa Peer. She has always been interested in the mind and when it does not work to our advantage wanted to know how it can be changed. After she graduated from university with a 1st Class Hons in Psychology she then worked in the Pharmaceutical world in Clinical Research. She wanted treatments to help. She did this for 18 years and was really successful, working as a Global Manager supporting the business to understand the root causes of when things went wrong and then designed solutions to address those root causes. Fair to say Caz always wants to get to the heart of the matter. Now albeit Caz was doing great in her career she knew something was not fulfilling her. She suffered Post Natal Depression after the birth of her first child and at that point looked up RTT. She tried antidepressants, CBT and counselling. Sure they helped but somehow the pain inside was not recovered - she was surviving and was fed up being in survival mode and just having coping strategies. The RTT changed everything for her. She not only rid herself of feelings such as guilt, depression, low self esteem but also decided to leave her 18 year career to train and become an RTT Therapist. She dealt with her money blocks and fears to set up her own business. Never looking back, being grateful for the lessons from her past - she turned her pain into purpose, freed herself from the past. Caz's story was one of trauma. She grew up in a home with an alcoholic father, she and her brothers lived in fear, walking on eggshells the whole time. She felt alone, scared. When she had her first child all of those feelings of being alone and scared came back to the forefront and that was a dark place for her. She had numbed the pain out yet had not realised (until RTT) that the numbing had held her back, caused her depression and her self sabotaging behaviours e.g. her bad relationship with money, her bad relationship with drink, attracting the wrong people in her life. Caz's nature is non-judgemental and her purpose is to make those that are in that survival mode (depression, anxiety, fear of something e.g. presenting, business fears) feel good enough and to have inner compassion, remove that inner critic and the wonderful realisation that nothing is perfect as no one can be perfect, we are human and we make errors. Caz's job is to smash away those limiting beliefs, those harsh critical words we say to ourselves and create a self-love and compassion that will enable you to live life to the full! To thrive in all aspects of life and have abundance in life (love, health, wealth). She has seen client after client turn it around after they have worked on their inner critic and mindset.

Episode 24. Carl Hinder. Business coach and sales genius.
Episode 24. My name is Carl Hinder and I am the ‘Business Coach’ and owner at Salon-Help. I started to formalise my salon coaching in 2015 after working with salons on a less formal basis for many years. When I had my own chain of salon’s I realised that there was no one to turn to when you needed a bit of advice, no one to bounce your ideas off, find that extra motivation when it mattered or just wanted to change direction. Even when I had great salon teams and fabulous managers it still often felt lonely, I would have given anything to have had a business coach or mentor. I developed many of my skills and much of my knowledge from my background in retailing, working at management level with three of the largest retailers and some of the best people and mentors in the UK. The move away from the corporate sector was perfect for me, and as I opened more salons’ I realised that you can apply well developed business skills to any business. It’s the same planning, people and communication skills, and above all else passion, no matter what your business is. When it comes to Salon business coaching, I know my background makes me hugely different form most coaches in my sector, I might be the right match for you if you are 100% committed to succeeding. I have never yet found a business that would fail, only salon owners not prepared to succeed. I will help you develop strategy and structure, but the rate of change is fast. I can come across as demanding, but that’s because I only want you focused on your success. I have done so many things over the years that help me, to help you. Author of the retailing book ‘Salon Products, Sell or Die (Not) Trying Retail management for 3 UK superstore brands Director of four salons Secretary and President of the Welsh NHF (National Hairdressers Federation) Operating a training company (that still exists) Working with hundreds of salon business’ Teaching Course writing Planning very large ceremonies and events, including the Welsh Hairdressing awards and the Welsh Hairdressing Championships Public speaking

Episode 19. Before Kim Jaynes founded Borboleta Beauty, she was an up-and-coming lash artist who wanted to give her clients the best extensions possible. Fed up with the lack of decent lash options, Kim dreamed of creating her own. She envisioned a lash brand that would embrace the beauty of diversity while empowering other artists to achieve their goals. In 2013, her dream became a reality when Borboleta Beauty was born. After starting the brand with nothing, Kim hustled to get her products into the hands of other artists. In the early days, she actually sold lashes out of the trunk of her car! Since then, the company has come a long way. Now one of the leading lash extension brands in the world, Borboleta is known and loved by artists all over the globe. For Kim, it’s always been about so much more than that—it’s about women supporting other women. That’s why the company is dedicated to giving lash artists the tools they need to be successful. In addition to developing cutting-edge products, Borboleta runs the lash industry’s largest education program, training thousands of artists around the world every year. For Kim, that’s the most rewarding part of all, helping other women build their careers and find their passion.
