Are there any business coaches in the retail industry, preferably cosmetics, barbering, or beauty?

Hi Keyani!

Thank you for your service and it's exciting to hear you're jumping into a new adventure. My specialty is marketing and communications and I would love to take a look at anything you're working on and provide some thoughts. Let me know - happy to help!


Keyani McNeil Birmingham, AL

Thank you, I will try them. I am a licensed cosmetologist

Keyani - Have you tried SCORE? It's a great organization of retired professionals that provide business advice for free.

Can you provide a few more details? Are you currently a licensed beautician and thinking about going out on your own, or ....?

First and foremost, thank you for your service and for posting this question.

While I have absolutely zero experience in cosmetics, barbering or beauty, I'm thinking you are exploring this because you're starting a small business?

If this is the case, American Corporate Partners also offers a free, yearlong, one on one mentorship program to post 9/11 Veterans. We have a lot of fantastic small business mentors who may be able to assist you with branding and starting/growing your own biz.

Please private message me if you'd like more information or you can go to:

Best of luck!

Semper Fi,
Erik - ACP Management
