No, the most important question in becoming a successful stylist is, “Do they trust me enough to believe my promises?”

Without trust you don’t stand a chance.

If you have skill but haven’t been able to build a strong clientele or sell products, it’s likely they don’t trust you as much as you would hope. In fact, if your game is solid but business isn’t growing… look for trust issues.

Earn trust, and everything else will follow.

Inspired (as always) by the writing of Seth Godin.
