In a heartfelt and enlightening conversation on the Stylist Soul Tribe Conversations podcast, host Lisa Huff sat down with Britt Seva, a renowned hairstylist coach and the force behind Thrivers. The duo delved deep into the challenges and triumphs of personal and professional growth, mentorship, and balancing work and life. Here are some of the key takeaways from their conversation.
The Evolution of Personal and Professional Growth
Britt reflects on how she has evolved over the years, not just professionally but also personally. "I was on this jet train and I was just taking it to whatever the destination was going to be," she recalls. It was only between 2020 and 2022 that she began to pause and ask herself what she truly wanted.
Losing Yourself in the Hustle
Britt confesses that while the journey felt like a thrill, she had lost herself in the process. She says, "I truly lost myself. And so one of the things I've talked about publicly is the passing of my best friend. She was the only family that I had because I'm not close to my parents."
This led Britt to reevaluate her priorities and focus on what truly mattered to her, beyond her professional accomplishments.
The Power of Mentorship
Lisa shares her personal journey of finding Britt as a mentor. "I did not have one single client to my name before I found Britt," Lisa admits. The mentorship provided the foundation for Lisa's success, which has now evolved into her own online membership for hairstylists, Stylist Soul Tribe.
The Future of Thrivers and Online Education
Britt gives us a glimpse into the future of Thrivers and the realm of online education for hairstylists. "I'm staying nimble and trying to figure out where's this all going to go," she says, emphasizing the need for adaptability in the fast-evolving digital education landscape.
The conversation offers invaluable insights into the realities of balancing professional ambitions with personal needs and relationships. It also underscores the transformative power of mentorship in the hairstyling industry.
