When Selling to close friends and families.

Ma Profile pic
Jack Ma once said, ‘When Selling to close friends and family, no matter
how much you’re selling to them, they will always feel you’re earning their
money, no matter how cheap you sell to them, they still wouldn’t appreciate
it.’

There will always be people who do not care about your Costs, Time, Effort,
they rather let other people cheat them, allowing others to earn, then
supporting someone they know. Cause in their heart, they will always be
thinking, ‘How much did he earn from me?’ instead of “How much did he
SAVE/MAKE for me?”

This is a classic example of a poor person’s mentality!

Ma on logic pic

How did the rich people become rich? One of the main reason is because they
are willing to SUPPORT their associates business, taking care of one
another’s interests thus naturally they get back more.

Your Friends will in turn support you, thus the circle of wealth continues
to grow and grow!

Simple Logic, you will start to get rich once you understand it.

Ma on sales pic

Jack Ma on Sales: ‘When doing Sales, the first people who will trust you
will be Strangers, Friends will be shielding against you, fair-weather
friends will distance from you. Family will look down upon you.’

The day you finally succeed, paying the bill for every get-together dinner,
entertainment, you will realised: Everyone else is present except the
Strangers.

Do you get the meaning of this?

Ma on sales pic
We need to treat our dear Strangers better! And even more so to Friends who
know what you are doing and yet still SUPPORT you!

Let us treat STRANGERS who buys from us better from today. They are your
BEST customers!

Dominican Presidents of Haitian origin.

I am not the kind of person who’d take a story an redistribute it, but when I find some thing this good, I just do it.
So here goes:
“When the facts change, then my opinions will change.”

The antagonism which opposes the Dominican Republic to Haiti has never been able to break the bonds of ancestry who were enrolled in the annals of the history of these two peninsulas . They are initially underestimated by Dominican historians often take an oath of allegiance to the anti- Haitianism , an old separatist doctrine renewed and nourished by the vindictive government of Pedro Santana , Ulysses Heureaux , Raphael Trujillo, Joaquin Balaguer and even the polluted leftist Leonel Fernandez. These historians of the East rather want a name in the demonization of the Haitian presence in neighboring territory , describing the Haitian daily as subhuman . In this row of pens biased , we find the Frank Moya Pons, Roberto Cassa Bernardo Pichardo and Bernardo Vega , to name one iota.

In contrast, some Haitian historians , inflated egos and perhaps for reasons of size or ignorance , have avoided writing this beautiful piece of history. These Haitian writers recount only border skirmishes as Campaign Eastern heinous massacre of October 1937 and disputes over fences adjoining the two republics. Indeed , only the dark side of the history of the island is known. These are destructive ideals that survived the years. While nothing in the world can overcome this historical truth : four presidents are Dominicans of Haitian origin.

Pedro SantanaProfile pic

Born in Hinche, June 29, 1801 , a Haitian family of Spanish descent. The revolution of the Haitian Revolution of 1804 forced his parents into exile in the Dominican Republic and settled in the Cibao in 1805. There, they continue to engage in farming they were already in Haiti because they had lost several cattle herds during the revolutionary Pedro Santana never forget this loss and wanting revenge. His native language , Creole , he was placed in command of Battalion – South Dominican Army he joined immediately. Later became the first constitutional President of the new republic in 1844 , Santana led with an iron fist and fought all Haitian attempt to reoccupy the east of the island.

Ulysses HeureauxProfile pic

Born in Puerto Plata October 21, 1845 , a Haitian father , Dassas ” Desse ” Heureaux who had also fled
The Haitian revolution of 1804

Dassas was the son of a black slave and a white planter . Josefa Lebert , the mother of Ulysses Heureaux was the island of Saint Thomas. Heureaux goddess had not taken care of little Ulysse ( Lili ) . To this end, he had a miserable childhood and rural . In 1863, when anti -American Gregorio Luperon stormed the barracks to return to Puerto Plata Dominican sovereignty stride by Uncle Sam, he was a member enrollees street and took an active part . On 1 September 1882, he became president. Lili was a créolophone feigned . There was no translator when needed strategic military agreements signed with President Florvil Hyppolite in 1891.

Raphael Leonidas TrujilloProfile pic

Trujillo was the legitimate son of Jose Trujillo Valdez Dominican and Haitian Julia Molina Chevalier. He was born on October 24, 1891 in San Cristobal.

The Knights took exile in neighboring following the turbulence between the Liberals and National that rocked Haiti, after the assassination of President
Salnave Territory in 1869 . Moreover, the general Victorin Knight , an influential member of this family, was Minister of War and Navy Government Salnave of 6 September 1869 to 6 November 1869. Trujillo ‘s mother had explained the incidents that had known his ancestors in Haiti . In particular, the nationalization and redistribution of their ill-gotten assets deemed by the Government of Solomon Lysius in 1879 . What had caused some of the hatred of the dictator against the Haitians, especially blacks. Trujillo became president in 1930. He massacred more than 30,000 Haitians in October 1937.

Joaquin BalaguerProfile pic

Joaquin Balaguerwas born of a father Porto Rican Joaquin Balaguer Lespier and a Dominican mothers, Carmen Cecilia Ricardo , 1 September 1907, at Navarette , close to Santiago de los Caballeros. His maternal grandmother , Rosalia Heureaux was the daughter of President Ulysses Heureaux . Rosalia has lived much of his life out of sight, after the assassination of her father in 1899, in Moca . Joaquin Balaguer was president of the Dominican Republic from 1961 to 1996 under intermittent mandates. Graduate School of Policy Trujillo, he was best known before antihaitien Leonel Fernandez. He was also the advisor to the bloody massacre of 1937, as Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs .

In other verbs, Haiti despised tirelessly in Dominican territory , nevertheless held the genesis of the story of the Ibero- African nation through gonads ancestors. Even if only the bad reputation is concerned , the law prevails inbreeding . Binational archives well debased Santana Heureaux , Trujillo and Balaguer who preferred to pass only for Spanish descendants.

“Before me there wasn’t any, after me there won’t be none!”

Profile pic

“Before me there wasn’t any, after me there won’t be none!” is what Jimmy Jenkins said to me on the day the doors closed at JLuv’s Spot.

JLuv’s was THE barbershop of all barbershops. The entertainer’s barbershop. And because of the exposure we’d get just by being in JLuv’s, on West 49th Street in Midtown, I was able to take my barbering skills to a new level. When I say a new level, I’m talking in terms of stepping up my game up and trumping up my life, charging more for hair cuts, establishing a solid client base. This is around the time I expanded my client field by sub-contracting to do photo and video shoots, house and office calls, serving higher-end clients and businessmen.

Profile pic I learned everything I know through my many conversations and dealings with top Hollywood celebrities, music executives, performance artists, professional Athletes, CEOs of large corporations and start-ups alike, surgeons, physicians, and models. My client list was so diverse:

Tyson Beckford, Dewayne Johnson (aka The Rock), Ben Vereen, Glynn Thurman, Andre Deshield, Tony Aiello, Andre Harrell, Freddy Jackson, Bel Biv Devo, Pras, Kendel Gill, Eric Murdock, and Lenox Lewis (just to name a few).

 photo image_17.jpg

Anyone who was someone back then, if you were on TV or behind the scene, you got your hair cut at JLuv’s Spot, “The Ultimate Grooming Spot”. Where else would one possibly go? I’m so inspired by Jimmy’s slogan and business model that until this day, my future business plans for my own shop are heavily influenced by everything that JLuv’s Spot stood for.

Jimmy Jenkins, also known as Jimmy Luvs or “JLuvs”, had previously been the Vice President of Uptown Records alongside Andre’ Harrell. As a smart investment and labor of love, Jimmy opened JLuv’s spot in West Midtown on 8th Ave in an area that wasn’t yet developed. But Jimmy had a vision. He understood the potential value of West Midtown, as well as its attractiveness to small business owners. Jimmy also knew that many music labels were moving into the Worldwide Plaza building on W. 50th street, and that proximity to his current music industry contacts was the key to his success.

“Always do one thing right first”

Jimmy was the ultimate entrepreneur; a networker and a visionary. He’s the type of individual every aspiring entrepreneur should meet and have at least one meaningful conversation with. He has dropped many, many gems of information that have stuck with me until this very day. The opening quote, Before me there wasn’t any, after me there won’t be none“, well, that’s what Jimmy said when he broke and destroyed everything in the shop that he couldn’t take with him on the last day of business. He even broke the mirrors.

There was always a wealth of knowledge in the brevity of Jimmy’s gems.

“Always do one thing right first” is what he would tell us. I heavily suspected that this was mainly directed towards the barbers who were primarily interested in working at JLuv’s Spot in the hopes of furthering their yet to be discovered rap talents. Barber by day, rapper “in the studio working on my album” by night. Jimmy loathed those kinds. His advice was for them to focus on their skill, and NOT their rapping skills.

One thing I can say about Jluv’s Spot Barbershop is that you don’t know how to cut black hair, do a fade, or give a flat top until you’ve worked there, so you had to have real skills in order to be considered good enough to be in JLuv’s employment. And if you weren’t exactly blessed in that department, yet had the ambition and the hunger, then that was the place for you. And we had legendary Barbers such as Fritz the Kat, Buddha Amar Kevin (Jimmy nicknamed him T-Rex because of the shape of his head), Ronald Roach, Mirlet August, Roudy Jeanaut, and Juanita Shamp. And then there were those who weren’t so legendary. I saw barbers came to work there and quit 1/2 a day later for a bevy of reasons. You def had to come prepared for the pressure and the pace.

I can’t say that I got along great with Jimmy “JLuv” Jenkins, but the was such a wise individual and savy businessman that I had no choice but to gladly watch him daily and absorb his wise ways. Because I knew that one day I wanted to be just like him.

HAIROGLYPHX… What’s in a name?

 photo image_13.jpg

HAIROGLYPHX is the word I used to describe creative carvings in a head of hair styled or felt. Below is a picture of Brad Pitt wearing one my creations
Felt hat design by Me. photo image_14.jpg

 

The word Hairoglyphic came from a price list we had while working at The Buzz photo imagejpg1-127.jpg Barbershop (West Village, NYC) back in 1992. It was the word we used in the shop to describe hair designs. But I changed that word to my own word by adding an X at the end back in 2004 when I produced my second barber chart, which had sold 3000 copies. photo imagejpg1-20.jpg

Today you might see a lot of barbershops and salons using the name as if it was their own, but one thing I can tell you, they all got it from me after the release of all those barber charts I sold around the U.S. So how about that for setting the trend?

The Rock in roll…

Following the SNL shoot
During the haircut at SNL, this photographer came in and ask me to pay him no mind as he snapped a few pictures of me while cutting The Rock’s Hairimage
After minute of posing left and right, back and forth for the photographer. He asked me to signed an agreement, shook everybody’s hands and walked out.
A few weeks later I stood at this barber shop where I was working at the time on West 47th Street.

This client walked in while reading a magazine, and asked me, just like this. “Yo! René do you know this guy?”
I was like, “Oh snap, I did this just a month ago.”
It was it, it was me cutting the Rock hair Picture in the WWE Raw Magazine (The Rock in Roll) 2001 edition. And this the cover.
You know you got your 15 minutes of fame when you walked inside the number 1 train and somebody yelled “Yo! That’s the guy, that’s The Rock’s barber” an another screamed “yeah, you are on page 38 of my WWE magazine.

And than people started coming to me because they saw or heard about me, I even saw client got up from their barbers chair just to come seat on my chair, I never really like that because first it always put me in a very awkward situation with their barbers, and I always treat people like that as Groupies, because all they want to come and talk to you about is that person. They’d came with questions such as how did you come up with those sideburns for him, did he like the cut, does he tip
You well, yo! Can you make my kidlook like the Rock? He is only 2 years old.
Yeah, bogus questions like those, which I never enjoyed answering

I figured it’s good to have role model and be a fan, but the worst thing you want to be is a male Groupie. No good.
But I gotta say though even though I have cut and styled many of other celebrity when I was cutting hair in Barbershops, I gotta say this Picture of the me and The Rock, has made my career, I don’t ever have to say anything to get a job, no demos no nothing, especially to Groupie barbershop owners, who get star struck every time they I’d bring a celebrity to their shops.

It’s always funny when I’d funny when I would meet other barbers who just thought I look more like a politician than a barber, all I have to do is pull out my phone and show them the picture, they would just shut up and zip it. Then ask me if I want to work where they work, or some come up with a million questions about how to become a celebrity barber.
So once again, thank you The Rock, Thank you Saturday Night live, thank thank you WWE Raw Magazine, thank you WWE, and thaaaaannnnnkkkk yoooouuu Technology
