Learn How Innovative Barber Jacob Joseph Is Dominating The Haircut Industry!

Published

on


Jacob Joseph is a Magna Cum Laude Alumni with a degree in Accounting who followed his dreams of becoming a barber. In pursuit of his dreams, Jacob attended an apprenticeship program with “Barber Club” and that was when things changed for the better. 

Today, he is a licensed barber and he has achieved unprecedented success with his Instagram platform. Jacob is one of the only few barbers in the industry who has a follower base of over 100,000 on Instagram. 

In this article, we will discuss the passion behind Jacob’s dreams; the success he attained, and some of the steps he took to ensure that he overcame challenges thrown at him. 


Overcoming Challenges 

Like many business owners, Jacob also had a fair share of challenges. Challenges are not uncommon with business owners and businesses, without them, these individuals and they’re businesses won’t grow.  

Pursuing his dream of becoming a barber proved to be a roadblock to him. In order to overcome these challenges, Jacob surrounded himself with people who were successful. These people, their actions, and habits motivated Jacob to become the man he is today.

“My mentors taught me that the best way to deal with challenges as an entrepreneur is by taking them head-on as they come.” – Jacob Shares


Outstanding skills 

Jacob Joseph believes that his determination helped his success. “I always put my faith and trust in God. He has always blessed me in my life and I continue to give gratitude and thanks to Him”. He said.  

Jacob also added that persistence and discipline are important to achieve your goal.


Drawing Inspiration & Upholding Healthy Practices

Jacob reveals that he has two main drivers which push me to succeed. 

The first would be his parents who were immigrants from the middle east and started a whole new life in this country.  As teenagers, they were able to build up a successful hair salon from scratch to provide for their family. 

Their hard work and tenacity are what pushes him to become as successful as he possibly can in order to give his family and himself the financial freedom that they want. 

Another inspiration that pushes him to be at the top of his game is the mindset of not settling. He has made it a statue not to be another barber in the game. Jacob wants to set a standard in my industry. Someone that other barbers can look up to, someone his colleagues can depend on. “I don’t like to be average. I know I have more to offer.” -Jacob says.

God has blessed us and given all of us special skills and talents to show the world! I want to make sure that I can give back to Him!”

Jacob further told us that in order to uphold healthy practices you have to hold yourself accountable for every action you take.  Burnouts are inevitable for human beings. The best way to deal with burnouts is to take as much rest as possible in order to recharge. 


Significant Achievements 

Prior to graduating from college, Jacob developed a passion for cutting hair and aspired to achieve his goal. Today, Jacob is a licensed barber and in less than a year he has grown his Instagram account from less than a thousand followers to more than 100k followers where he publicly displays his skills and has helped him build a solid digital footprint. 

This growth has opened doors to many sponsorships with different companies including Gammaplusna. 


Words of Advice 

Here are some words of advice from Jacob himself for people striving to attain success in any field;

“Words of advice I can give is that you are your biggest advocate or enemy. 

Your mindset will dictate your future. Make your thoughts work in your favor. 

Keeping a positive outlook in the face of adversity is difficult, but the results of that positive mindset will take you where you want to go in life. 

Don’t dwell on the setbacks, plan for the triumphs. I am no better than you or the next person. 

I only compete with myself and make sure that I grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. 

Once you stop worrying and caring about others is when you will be able to do whatever you love, which will lead you to live the life of your dreams!”

You Should Have A Plan A, B, C, And Even D- Business Growth Tips From Tranquil Store Founder, Alec Delayno Martin

Published

on

Alec Delayno Martin

If you have been on the look-out for handy and practical tips that can help you run your business better, Alec Delayno Martin has a word or two for you. 

Delayno has started and successfully scaled multiple businesses across the fashion, entertainment, real estate, and finance industries. 

In June 2020, he created Tranquil Store, a US-based CBD company with a range of premium and quality products, from CBD Gummies to Vegan Granola bars.

Here is a quick run-down of his top tips for growing and running a business.

Have A Winning team

To successfully grow your business, you must have an unwavering commitment to excellence. Invest in developing services and products that are in high demand, and complement that with recruiting a winning team. The set-up of your team can make or break your business.  

Alec Delayno Martin speaks of his team at Tranquil Store below;

“My team works around the clock to come up with new products to release to the world. We also put dedicated time and effort into coming up with solutions for anyone in need. 

Our success depends on making consumers happy. Once consumers are giving us positive feedback, we see that we are climbing up the ladder.”

Don’t be afraid to be different

Many leaders come into a new industry, armed with innovative solutions for deep and pressing problems. However, they allow fear of being seen as too different or radical to stop them from chasing their bold ideas. 

When Alec Delayno Martin decided to launch Tranquil Store, he noticed that many CBD companies did not have diversity in their product lines. There was a limited variety of products available in the market.

Hence, he decided to make Tranquil Store a one-stop-shop where everybody could find a product that would suit their lifestyle.

Tranquil Store offers a wide variety of products including, CBD Gummies, Vegan Granola bars, premium quality flower, several different Tincture flavors, soft gels, and Lollipops.

“Tranquil Store was started to help ourselves, friends, and now the world. Our products are available around the globe for everyone like us. We have something for everybody ”, the founder says.

Plan to Succeed

Entrepreneurship, in this age, has become synonymous with a public show of wealth and figures. Many people who desire this lifestyle descend into a panicked rush to launch a business as soon as possible. Then, they discover the sweaty and hard part of running a business that is rarely talked about or displayed; the failures and endless trials.

“Come up with a plan,” Delayno advises. “ You should have a plan A, B, C, and even D. Don’t rush into getting off the ground but don’t delay either. Try to execute your goals as much as possible. Do not be afraid to reach out for a helping hand.”
