Best Advice: Douglas McCoy, House of POp

Douglas McCoy, salon owner, educator and artist has grown his reputation exponentially over the course of the last year – in large measure, we would guess, by living the advice he has to offer in today's Best Advice video series. 

Wherever you are in the life cycle of your professional journey, Douglas' advice to make "quality" a cornerstone in making choices in all aspects of career and life is sure to be relevant. Perhaps most important is his realization that with so many options available to us in every part of our careers, business and life, the ability to develop a discerning “eye” is what often separates those who succeed from the rest.
