What is Disruption?
Today disruption effectively means disrupting traditional ways of doing things.

I will confess that I do hair from Home. It started as friends and family, and grew into a business. I also free-lance at various Salons around Sydney and facilitate training at other salons – helping hairdressers work better. smarter, safer and increasing income. I love that I have the freedom to help my Industry colleagues experience more commercial successes.
Its about more revenue streams and that beats the wages and conditions that many salons have on offer. I know its not popular – but its the way of the future. Evolve or die!
