GREAT ADVICE

 

Cozy Friedman

Founder & CEO, Cozy’s Cuts for Kids

 

At Cozy’s, kids are king. The children’s salon goes beyond lollipops with an in-house toy store, party space and line of hair products. We learned more about the woman behind the business, Cozy Friedman.

 

WHEN STARTING A COMPANY YOU MUST...

Do your homework. Research, research, research!

 

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND COZY’S CUTS FOR KIDS…

Was my friend's nephew, who was asked to leave an adult salon when he began to cry during his haircut.

 

I LOVE WHAT I DO BECAUSE…

It's such a creative and happy business. There's never a shortage of new ideas to pursue — and what's better than a happy child?

 

NEVER BE AFRAID OF…

Rejection. There's no such thing as no; you just haven't gotten to yes yet.

 

THE BEST BUSINESS ADVICE I'VE EVER RECEIVED IS…

Surround yourself with people smarter than you and learn to delegate.

 

ONE THING I WISH I’D KNOWN WHEN STARTING MY BUSINESS…

I'm actually glad I didn’t know more — it may have stopped me. There's nothing like on-the-job training.
