After departing from the United States Marine Corps, I entered into my voyage of a beauty industry professional. I learned a lot of technical & theoretical information, but i realize now that I was never really taught the "business" side of things. Of course we scratched the surface, but i was not aware of the "dog eat dog" world that I was to encounter. In my journey, I have not found an institution that does. This is the purpose of this website. To coach others on the things that I have learned the hard way. I want to elevate the awareness of the need for personal development. I am seeking out anyone looking to improve themselves from the inside out. I do have a passion for cosmetologist barbers & independent contractors of all types, but this information will be useful for virtually anyone. I am launching this site because I wish I would have known years ago what I know now. So, I will be regularly posting information so that I will be able to address the needs of those ready to take their careers to the next level. At 4PeoplesChoice Solutions, we believe that if we create solutions for the issues of the mind body & soul, then we will make the choices that will elevate us to levels unknown!

Right To Carry

There has been a major debate on gun laws and constitutional right to bear arms.  I will not take this time to discuss how little the  image1constitution is adhered to these days, especially in a court of law.  That will be a discussion for another time.  At this time, if there are no restrictions already put upon you, then you have the right to own a firearm.  In many states you have the right to keep firearms in your vehicle for protection, even if you do not have a concealed handgun license.  Notice that it said handgun, a long gun does not even have restrictions on them.  Many that are from rural areas have probably seen some people with gun racks in their back window.  If one does have a CHL, then they can tote it anywhere that they go as long as that facility does not have signs posted that guns are not permitted in that particular establishment.  Regardless of any of these rights that we have, know that if a firearm is ever discharged, chances are that you will have to defend your actions which prompted the firing of your weapon.  This can sometimes be a stressful situation, so it is imperative that we have someone on our side in the event that this does ever occur.  Or even if you just have questions.  Peace of mind is priceless, and this protection is almost cost less.  Don’t get caught unprepared.  I f you are going to have a fire arm, then you should have a fire plan.


If It Is To Be, It’s Up To Me

One thing that has become obvious is if I want something done, we have to make sure that it is done.  No one will mind your business for you like you will.  I spoke with a lady today who almost allowed her parent to talk them out of going to cosmetology school.  One parent told her that she will be making minimum wage when she gets out of school.  I assured her that did not have to be the case.  Many do get out of school and make meager compensation upon their graduation, but many also do very well right out of school.  This is purely up to the individual.  Often times it is evident while they are still in school as to who will be successful.  If they sit around during school, avoiding work, inattentive during theory, disrespectful when guest speakers come in, and always on their mobile device doing everything but promoting themselves, then chances are these individuals will not be successful.  On the other hand; when individuals are always being productive, working on the grades even while their clients are processing, asking relevant questions about the industry, participating in extra-curricular activities, attending trade shows, requesting more classes, and constantly promoting themselves on social media, it is almost inevitable that this individual will be successful even in the entry level portion of their career.  They are not waiting on someone else to get their career jumpstarted. They are not blaming anyone else if their chair is empty, they are taking the necessary steps to make sure that the space does not remain empty.  These individuals realize that marketing retail products is an additional income source, and not just something that someone else wants them to do.  When these individuals are diligent, they usually have a position well before they leave school.  These types of traits can be rare, so employers try to corral these individuals as soon as they possibly can.  There are people that make things happen, there are people that watch things happen, and there are those that end up having to ask what happened.    This site is in place for those that want to make things happen.  We hope to work with many individuals in any facet of business that want to make things happen.  We hope to hear from you soon!

Train A Child

We are in a time that we must train our children about financial literacy. If this is a part of their upbringing, then they will not be ignorant of business practices as they either enter the workforce, or start their own businesses.  We are in an era of transition, even though this transition began over a decade ago. Many people still have an Industrial Age mindset, even though we are well into the Information Age.  I see very successful people that have gained all of their success in the Industrial Age, so they assume that their path will still work today for others. The issue that arises is that a lot of the opportunities that were available in the time of the their is are no longer as abundant as they were.  Many factories and companies are outdated & no longer real vent. Others have picked up their operations and moved to other countries where they can employ a much less expensive workforce than in the U.S.  Just because the path was used back then was successful, does not mean that it will translate into success now.  In most cases the old path will lead to an even faster failure due to antiquated practices. We must first invest in our own education, and then we must empower our children to take their financial future into their own hands. We look forward to assisting our communities, cities, and hopefully our country into a new age of abundance.


img_0100 A dear friend to the association has found them sales and quite a dilemma. I want to ask a question. What is the true meaning of a victimless crime? If we truly  look at the laws as they are and were created initially, a crime is supposed to be a person against a Nother person. Due to the financial situation of the United States, everything that is handled with in the judicial branch is now a corporate or financial transaction. This is why all transactions or communication done with the public is now written in all capital letters.   If one were to look and the blacks Law dictionary, Capitis Dimininutio Maxima Will be found as the highest or most comprehensive loss of status. This occurred when a man’s condition was change from one of freedom to one of bondage when he became a slave. It’s swept away with all rights of citizenship and all family rights.   This is what has been done with all citizens of the United States. If you notice that on every legal document that one possesses that the name is written in all capital letters. Is this how we write our names? No, it is not. Because under admiralty law,  or better known as maritime law, all transactions must be done as corporation to Corporation. After  The United States they all into a state of bankruptcy, all of the citizens of the United States are now considered as human capital. This is why all of these documents are in all caps. There is no legal ramifications  toward an individual from a corporate entity. All transactions are from corporation to corporation. So, the only way that this law could be in acted is to make each individual citizen a corporation. This is why each individual has to have a birth certificate, and after departure from this life has to have a death certificate . Just as a manifest from an entity transporting goods from one country to another.  There has truly been no new law since the 1930s. Everything that has been imposed since that time has just been new statute or regulation that the country has imposed as a new form of their statutory laws. Common law is no longer common part of the American way. There are very few common law states remaining in the United States. Common law is what the Constitution was supposed to truly represent. This would not have worked well with maritime admiralty law, because the Constitution is not employees worldwide. In a global market the United States has to impose rules that will work from country to country world wide. This is why the you Uniformed Commercial Code   Was adopted by all 50 states. Uniformity in a global market was necessary for the United States to make an attempt to pay off all of their outstanding debts. Notice that no job application or any application for that matter asked if you are a citizen of America.  The question is always asked are you a citizen of the United States. The United States is a corporation that was formed by the powers that be to operate and  perform commercial transactions in an attempt to repay the dads that the United States old the world. Look at your Social Security card, look at your drivers license, look at any form of professional trans action that is done involving your name.  Your name will always appear in all capital letters. Understand that this is not a coincidence. This is not just a circumstance that happens to have fallen into place as a regular occurrence. These individuals are highly intelligent, and nothing that they do are by  accident. This is what has brought about my concerns involving the individual Avenue for mentioned. The crime that this individual was convicted of was driving while impaired. This individual had multiple convictions of the same offense.  We would like to mention some of the details before judgment is cast. This individual was a United States Marine. This individual played football for the United States Marine Corps, until he suffered a hamstring tear which prevented him from continuing to play football in a  safe capacity. Once the individual could no longer play football for the Marine Corps, he was return to regular duty even though his injury was proven by the Naval Corpman as being in a severe state to where the individual  was to be placed on light duty. The Marines superior made the statement that no one under his command would ever be considered on light duty. The marine was forced to train Aziza if he were healthy.  This brought about subsequent injuries which would later progress to the marine being recommended for a medical separation from the Marine Corps.  During the time in between the marine was only given Motrin as a source of relief from the pain incurred by the injuries which had been sustained. The individual was found to have multiple herniated disc, and a deterioration  of the niece of this individual from constant stress of training and limping in the mitts thereof. This has resulted into knee surgeries and constant back pain for this individual. Now, back to the issue at hand.  During the time of the individuals issues of dealing with pain with no more then medication that could basically be found over the counter, and the individual relegated himself to self-medicating by the use , And eventually the abuse of alcohol. This caused the individual to have multiple driving while intoxicated convictions. Even though the individual never harmed anyone, he is now seen as a felon. There was never a  situation to where there was damage to any one or anything else. The individual was usually pulled over for speeding, or in one instance just because the policeman recognized his car. This individual has served time in prison, and is currently serving a 10 year probation. This is where the true issue comes into play.  Even though there is no victim, or any form of damages, this individual is and will always be treated as a convicted felon. Right now, this person is six years into their 10 year probation.  This individual has had an interlock device placed on his car the entire six years, plus one year of pre-tryout time. Even though this individual has never failed one of the test given by this device, the courts have claimed that there have been  trace amounts of alcohol found that the machine would never show the individual who was blowing into the device. These trace amounts would only be seen by the monitoring officials. This would still allow the individuals card to crank, and function as normal even though there was some supposed trace amount of alcohol present.  This is the same machine that has proven not to be able to tell the difference from bread and alcohol. This is the same machine that has proven not to be able to determine the difference between mouthwash and true legitimate intoxicating alcohol. This is the same machine that has proven to not even be able to detect when the car is cranked, and when it is not.  With the allegations that were proposed by the Ewa Denteley unreliable machinery used for monitoring, then individual was subjected to having to wear what is called a scram bracelet.  With this bracelet it is mandated then an individual does not utilize or partake in anything that could possibly contain alcohol. If you look up the ingredients of the majority of all household, hi Jean, and every day products it will clearly make it evident that It is almost impossible to avoid all contact with alcohol. The monitoring service claims to be able to tell the difference, so we will for the moment go along with that. Eventually the individual who had never failed a urinalysis test in the prior six years, was subjected to what is called an ETG test. Ethyl Glocirinide is A compound produced by the body when it is exposed to alcohol. Noticed that I did not say when alcohol is he just did it. I did not even say when it is an alcoholic drink. ETG  detects when the body is exposed to alcohol. This can be in hailing fumes that have alcohol in it. This can be the use of hand sanitizer’s or disinfectants that have an alcoholic base. This can even be the use of every day products used with and hair styling, cosmetics,  and every day use. The test cannot differentiate from any form of alcohol. The problem there in lies that anytime that these test or utilize, the individual is seen as having violated the conditions of his probation. This means that an individual can be separated from their family,  incarcerated, and ruined for life for using every day household products. This is not right, nor is it just. We have to make a stand, because if this is happening to this one individual, who knows how many victims have been wrongfully incarcerated or  or miss treated due to these unreliable practices. We can look at the prison industrial complex mentality. All of these companies have contracts with the different counties and states that they are involved with. Which would mean that the state would have to have proposed that there would be a  certain number of individuals utilizing their services for it to be beneficial for the company to offer the entity a discounted price for the use of their services. This is why we feel these practices are in place, so that these federal county or local governments can meet their budgets.  The loss of an individual’s livelihood is just collateral damage. We cannot allow for business to continue as usual if we want any type of change to happen. It is all to everything and all around us of too many government and local officials using their power for their personal gains.  The governor of Texas, but his case was thrown out. The attorney general of Texas, his case is still riding alone while he continues business as usual. A judge in Collin County on that case was removed because of the judge discussing that case outside of the  princess. Any of the jurors would have gone to jail for such a nag, but the judge was just removed from the case. This is unsatisfactory. Policeman in Arlington Texas creating false tickets just to meet their quotas. And all around the nation we see corrupt and immoral actions being done, but we’re  supposed to just except it as business as usual. This cannot continue. We will not ever realize or recognize change as long as we allow for the same corrupt actions to continue as usual. There has to be action taken, and there has to be some form of accountability for these individuals which are in power. I pray that you will join us and educating each other so that we can in power each other so that we can eventually take back the rights that are innately given to each other. please let me know your thoughts, and let me know what I can discuss that will bring clarity into the urgency that is needed to bring about a change. Thank you and God bless.

Please let me know your thoughts, and let me know what I can discuss that will bring clarity into the urgency that is needed to bring about a change. Thank you and God bless.

Just Imagine

Henry David Thoreau once said, “this world is but a canvas to our imagination.”  Think about that for a moment.  Everything that was ever created was put here in the beginning.  Every essential ingredient or element was already here.  Now we are realizing the plan that was set for at the beginning of time.  We have not created anything, we are just realizing how to utilize what we were give.  difficultiesLook around us.  The wonderful architecture of building, the awesome abilities of our devices, the advancement in automobile, our exploration of space, and so on are absolutely amazing.  All of these things were at one time far beyond the thought of possibility to most, but blueprint was implanted in those individuals willing to let their imagination become reality.  We are all wonderfully made, and we have greatness within us.  The only issue is, that most of us do not see the possibility of accomplishing the dreams that we are holding internally.  There is no one like you ever created.  This is true up to this point, and moving forward.  There will never be another you.  Even identical twins are not identical in all aspects.  That is because we were all made for a specific purpose.  We are just taught to play it safe.  Don’t take risks.  Mistakes are bad.

We have to understand that we all make mistakes.  The problem is, we aren’t willing to move on from those mistakes.  We begin to allow those mistakes to define us.  Thomas Edison was asked what was it like failing over a thousand times before succeeding with his invention of the light bulb.  Edison said that he did not fail over a thousand time, but he was successful in determining over a thousand ways that did not work.  He was also quoted saying, “many of life’s failure are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave.

“When you’ve exhausted all possibilities, remember this—you haven’t.”_0A wolfdyke_0A Robert H. Schuller

Not everyone will achieve their dreams, but a dream never dreamed will never be achieved.  We have to allow our God given imagination the opportunity to show us beyond what our physical eyes can see.  We look at a number of things in nature, and we stand in awe of them.  Well the same creator of those awe inspiring spectacles is the same one that created you.  Don’t allow the small minded people of the world to squelch the vigor that you have within yourself.  What if so many others would have succumb to naysayers.  Where would we be without the pioneers and innovators that have shaped our world.  You might be the next in line, but that can never happen if you do not allow what is inside of you to come out of you to accomplish what you are supposed to.  What purpose were you put on this earth for?  JUST IMAGINE!

Spiritual Growth & Financial Growth

We all have choices in life.  We have to make decisions daily that will affect our future in a positive or negative way.  I am of the belief that if we want to grow financially, we almost assuredly have to grow spiritually.   Whether we want to face it or not, the two can be closely connected.  They are both integral parts of our life.  No matter what we believe, almost everyone believes in something greater than themselves.  Our belief is very powerful.  If you believe that you can, then you can.  If you believe that you can’t, then you can’t.  Either way, you will right.  This is why the “WHY” in our life is so important.  Our belief system often guides our decisions.  The spirit and passion that we have to achieve something is what is necessary for success.  When we realize that we are blessed to be a blessing to others, then what we do has a totally different meaning.  What we receive is valued in a totally different way.  What is you why, and why is it your why?  That is the beginning of your path to success.difficulties


How many different sites do technical tutorials?  How many different places can you learn a different way to do what you already know how to do?  I am not knocking these sources of information at all, because we will at times incorporate portions of that into the educationabeing happyl process that we offer.  At 4PeoplesChoice Solutions, we want toconcentrate on what the school’s we attended left out.  We want to go beyond just the technical skills that we need to be a great beauty industry professional, but also the business skills that we need to be a beauty industry powerhouse.  How many of us went to school just to be able to make a living?  How many of us just wanted a job (Just Over Broke)?  The problem is that the trade school that we attended is just that.  Even if we learned our trade in a traditional college, the education still concentrated on teaching us to just be an employee.  They briefly hit on opportunities that are out there, but basically their focus was on how we can trade time for money.  Look at the amount of information provided on the business, as opposed to every other chapter in the textbooks.  There is nothing wrong with that concept, as long as you never get sick, hurt, need extended time off, or want to be financially free.  If you can avoid all of these things, then a job is the thing for you.  Most of us can not predict tchoose lovehe future, so we need additional assets or abilities that can create additional income.  This is where we want to come in.  We want to be great at what we do, but we also want great things happening for us in spite of us instead of only because of us!  That way we can do what we love, and love what we do.  All the while we can do it without worrying about how long we have to do it, how many people we have to do it to, and what else do i have to do to make it!  Come be a part of the movement, and invite some others along for the ride.

Customized Experience

The haircut used to be one of the most informal counseling sessions known to man.  We have to cater“The best way to predict the future is our services to our clientele.  We have to be up to date on current issues along with excellent technical skills.  We are in a people business.  Anything we can do to better connect with out clientele, the better our results will be.  A barber can hold a very important and informative position in the well being of a patron.  We as barbers have to make sure that we are well versed in products and services that will benefit our clientele.  We have to understand the techniques of sales and customer relations.  We have to understand that true success extends beyond just our ability to handle the clippers and razor.  Even though those are necessary skill sets, we have to understand that this is just the beginning of the story.  Face shape, head shape, and body have to be taken into consideration with the style give to a client.  We all know that all styles do not look good on everyone.  We have to create an idea in the mind of the patron that will be more complimentary to that individual.  We do not want to be a cookie-cutter barber.  That is a barber that just cuts a style to look the same as someone else’s.  That is not a true barber.  Their are a bunch of amateurs that can do that.  A true barber has studied, and utilizes each service as an individualized work of art.  We take the time and effort to make sure that their is symmetry and harmony throughout the style.  The highlighting of flattering features as well as the shadowing of unflattering features are all a part of the process.  What makes you stand out from the next barber?  Do you know the difference between the texture & density of an individuals hair?  Do you know or even carry the products that will work best for the different categories?  We have to take pride in our craft, which means knowing the ins & outs of it.

As barbers we also have to be cognizant of our vulnerability.  Most barbers work on a linear basis.  This means that we get paid by how much we work.  As a victim of a serious accident, I understand that anything can happen at any time.  If we don’t work, then we don’t eat.  This is why we have to learn to leverage our income.  I know that some barbers have their own shops, and the get booth rental fees weekly, but that is still linear.  The booth fees are pretty much set, and if they leave, so does the money.  We have to learn to not only work for money, but let money work for you.  This is where the counseling portion of the service can be to your advantage.  Find some form of business that will be useful to your clientele, as well as put some extra money in your bank account.  Be sure to do your research, find out about the company.  Find out about the market.  Research the timing and current trends going on around us.  An informed barber not only gets clients to return for their technical skills, but the fulfilling of additional needs can keep the customers returning as well creating new clients as well.  We are in the instant gratification & convenience generation.  The more quality that you can get at one place, the more apt we are to return to that establishment.  We have to use this to our advantage.  We can build a business along with our career simultaneously.   How does it get any better than that?  I am biased, so I will not suggest what business you should incorporate into your current operations, but you can go to my “protect yourself” or “lets talk business pages to find out my preference.  Don’t wait and hope that your future turns our prosperous, create a scenario where this can actually be a reality!
