We had the good fortune of connecting with Neiman Sherrard and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Neiman, how do you think about risk?
I honestly think you have to take risk in life to be successful. One of my favorite quotes is “You miss 100% of shot you don’t take” , and I believe it’s like that with risk as well. I didn’t know being a barber was going to be career for me a year and a half ago. I took a risk by picking up a pair of clippers and it worked out in my favor. To everyone out there contemplating on doing something, just go for it, you never in where it could take you.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a barber but I consider myself an entrepreneur. I don’t just keep myself inside a box. I’m most proud of how far I’ve come in such little time but I’m far from where I want to be. I honestly got to where I am today by just simply being myself. I started cutting hair seriously about a year ago now and stayed in constant competition with myself. It wasn’t a easy but it wasn’t hard. Consistency is main key if you decide to start something. I’m a firm believer of “you get out what you in”.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First spot I’m taking them to is Harris House of Heroes to get some of them wings lol. Then I’ll take them to a couple spots I promote for, Area111, Opera, etc. I’m from Dallas so I definitely have to take them to Rudy’s, and it’s a must we Sunday Funday.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First I owe God the biggest shoutout, without him nothing is possible. I also just want to say thank you to every single one of my clients and people who just supported me in anyway, I really appreciate it.
