Class: Associated Hairdressers and Cosmetologists of Missouri
It was an honor to serve you!!
In mid May, I made a trip to Kansas City, Missouri for the weekend and I was hanging with the Associated Hairdressers and Cosmetologists of Missouri. I mean it when I said that this was such a beautiful group! I was honored to be contacted by AHCM to develop and propose a financial class to be included in the cosmetology instructur license renewal seminars. My response was a hearty "Let's do it!!" I developed a class that focused onEmpowering Students for Financial Success. Once accepted, the class was included in the curriculum for the State of Missouri cosmetology license renewal curriculum that was made available for cosmetologists by AHCM. I taught this class in the AHCM License Renewal education that was held in Kansas City, Missouri on May 17th 2015. In this session I shared about Managing a business instead of nurturing a hobby, Managing personal finances with a variable income stream and trends in consumer payments. The cosmetology instructors that were a part of the class were from all areas of the state of Missouri. Each was so welcoming and very engaged in the class! This did not feel like work at all!!
It was also a weekend of celebration for the Associated Hairdressers and Cosmetologists of Missouri as it was their 75th Anniversary as an organization. I stayed around after teaching the class and attended the 75th Diamond Anniversary banquet. The history and accomplishments of this organization runs deep and is highly commendable. The well deserving officers, members and supporters of this dynamic group were honored at the elegant banquet. I was again honored and surprised to be recognized with a Business Partner Award as a part of the festivities. Thanks to Dr. Annetta Vertreese, Director of Education and Dr. Chiquita Johnson, State President of AHCM for inviting and welcoming me to the “Show Me” state. Again, I’m believing or financial success to each student in the class and for those students that cross your paths. Until next time! Carolyn
