Thanks for joining us today. Before we get into specifics, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers and tell them a bit about how you got to where you are today?
My name is Heidi Fessler and I am a 31 year old Hairdresser working at Vantage Salon in Wheat Ridge, CO. I’m originally from a very small town in Northern Iowa, but I have been in Colorado since 2013. I’ve been in the beauty industry since 2010, but my passion for it started as a very young child. I made the big jump to self employed life in 2018 and I’ve never looked back. For me, taking this leap of faith has been the most empowering and exciting journey of my life so far and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
What does a typical day look like?
One of the amazing perks of being self employed is setting your own work schedule, and for this reason I choose to work afternoons & evenings. The benefit of this is having my mornings to myself to center and prepare for the upcoming day. I spend my mornings meditating, journaling, reading, and walking my dog. I usually head into the salon around noon, where I spend my day letting my creative energy flow and connecting with my clients. I love my job and most days fly by. I usually wrap up around 7 pm and head back to my apartment to spend my evening cooking, watching tv, and more reading, meditation, and journaling. (Mental health is extremely important to me, so reading, journaling, and meditation are a must!)
