Your Story Is Why We're Here

ou’ve been our inspiration at Steven James to keep sharing stories of hope, opportunity, and even humor in these recent days! The weather is starting to turn more Spring-like, and there are encouraging signs that we can cautiously start venturing out and engaging in ways we’re used to doing again in the near future.

As we slowly emerge from ‘Stay at Home’, we’re thinking about all the simple things we want to do like freely shop at a store, get away for the weekend, and go see our hair stylist or barber to trim back the human Chia Pet experiment atop our heads. For our team, daily video conferences have become audio only…everyone’s camera is suddenly “not working correctly”.

Shear Ego Online Learning

And, yes, school is still closed and the kids are home. Every. Single. Day.

But what happens when you’re both a hair salon and a school? That’s a challenge presented to our client family at Shear Ego. Not just a renowned salon & spa, but also an educational center training our future stylists, manicurists & estheticians. Facing a double threat to their livelihood, and let’s face it, our appearance, Shear Ego has boldly taken the step of moving their hands-on, people-centered education model totally virtual. Their students are still learning, preparing for licensing, and readying for our next visit to their salon.

Of all the members of our client-family, they are among the most dramatically impacted. When they again open their physical doors, we will be the first in line. We’ve been privileged to partner with the incredible team at Shear Ego in communicating their story as they adapt and show great resiliency.

Your story is our story.

Sunday Sauce Is On... Come On Over

I’ve never been one to stay put for too long. My mom, dad, sister and I moved around quite a bit. Twenty residences, seven states, two countries. My father met his southern belle at the Officer’s club while he was stationed at the Charleston, SC naval base. Beauty and the Bull got married, had two children. You’ve heard this story before.

A Thousand Words

The saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” is well known and certainly has withstood the test of time. There are a few notable origin stories about the saying. Leonardo da Vinci allegedly stated that “a poet would be overcome by sleep and hunger before being able to describe with words what a painter is able to depict in an instant.”

Shared Stories Bring Us Together

One of my favorite things about a story, and art in general, is its ability to unify people. Here’s what I mean. When we experience a story, we come to it from different places – sometimes vastly different places. We have different backgrounds, different experiences, different perspectives, and perhaps even different values.
