Can you tell us more about the podcast, Beyond the Chair, and how the name came about?
Beyond the chair Is a podcast that just kind of fell into our laps. Des and I both come from a background of doing hair and hustling. We realized that we could help service providers make more money beyond just what they know. Which is behind the chair. We were supposed to just take a day and film content and it turned into a full-blown podcast. The positive feedback we received overnight was confirmation to keep going.
What was the motivation to launch Beyond the Chair?
The motivation to launch beyond the chair really comes from the passion we have to push our community. We as a culture get so content with doing the least that we forget to dream. We forget to challenge ourselves. So, although we may be cute, fun and funny. We have that desire to help our people soar. We deserve luxury!

What advice could you provide to other women that are interested in starting a podcast, but are not sure where to begin or will be taken seriously?
Listen if you want to start a podcast or a business in general, do it! What’s the worst that can happen? You gotta believe that you can never lose. You only learn or it’s s lesson. Quit thinking it’s s loss! Shift that mindset of everything happens for me instead of to me, will allow you to be more fearless.
