Hi Audrey, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
My Name is Audrey T Rodriguez I live in Tampa Florida. I am 44 years old born in Georgetown Washington DC My Mother is from Costa Rica and father from Puerto Rico … I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up …. Seeing My Parents run their own business inspired me to One day Own my Own Business… As I child I always played with My Dolls hair cut it and styled their hair I even cut a few childhood friends’ hair… lol. I always visioned owning my own Hair Salon. Thanks to My Parents who showed me that by working hard and learning are the 2 components that I saw growing up are instilled in me … I am never Done working hard and learning that is what keeps me going … I feel that we always have room for improvement and the capacity to keep learning… I love that I am able to show my Art through the smiles and faces of all the Great People who are in my journey as A Young Passion-Driven Entrepreneur. The Best Part and Reward is Helping People and Creating Art Through the Beauty Industry. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has been hard to be a career Driven Single Mother of 2 boys 16 and 21… whoever said you can just go to hair school and that’s it… it comes with Highs and Lows… You start with Cleaning the salon then moving into an Apprentice Program for about 4 years then you keep working and learning to your Craft through Mistakes… Managing is not as easy as it sounds… 

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
Starting in this Business learn as much as you can and take lots of Notes. Be open to Receive Direction.
