Q: Tell us something about the seventh book of yours...
A: The previous six books were different. This book is the first one on the business of hairstyling. Titled ‘Attitude is Everything’, this book is meant for every professional who has the zeal and enthusiasm for growth, and wants to turn their dreams into reality! From my perspective, there is a compelling need to address the subject because, at the end of the day, it is all about the game of attitude. This superpower ensures success, and teaches the value of pushing limits, breaking boundaries, collaboration, success and hard work. This book is my journey and key study of an entrepreneur mind and I am happy to share it with all.
