This is a shaving business. We sell some sweet razors to get rid of unwanted body hair, but I have not even mentioned my reasons for shaving. And in honour of our 5 blade razors, I will give you my top 5 reasons why I shave.
NUMBER 1 - I LOOK BETTER
Pure vanity wins out here, and I am not ashamed of it. I think I look better with a clean shave or maybe one day of growth. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I am choosing that I look better after a shave, but even with that I don't shave as regularly as I should. Laziness wins out a lot until...
NUMBER 2 - I START TO LOOK HOMELESS
My facial hair comes in patchy so when it starts to grow I don't grow in a thick ruggedly masculine beard, nor do I have that designer stubble look. It is bang smack in the middle that I call homeless chic. And it does not work for me. It also...
NUMBER 3 - GETS DAMN ITCHY
When my facial hair grows out it starts to itch really badly on my jawline so then I look even more homeless, see above. The combination of patchy slightly red-tinged facial hair and scratching incessantly doesn't make me look like a healthy member of society, also it...
NUMBER 4 - TO LOOK YOUNGER
I look younger after I shave. I reveal my little chubby babyface. Even though I am 6 foot 6 and tower over most people, sometimes after I shave I get ID'ed at the supermarket. Never with facial hair do I ever get ID'ed. That probably goes back to the vanity category a little bit too.
NUMBER 5 - WILD CARD
This is a little left field and won't apply to a few of you. When I was younger I used to shave my legs. After shaving your legs and then getting into bed with some fresh clean sheets, that sensation was awesome. I no longer have to tape up my ankles and knees for sport so those years a long gone, but there were fun.
What are your top 5 reasons to shave?
MOMENT OF GRATITUDE
Recently, a friend recommended me to help their friend with a business idea they were trying to get off the ground. It felt nice being thought of as someone that could add some value to the conversation. Then it felt even better after getting involved and playing with the idea and creating some ideas about how it could all work.
I recommend everyone should start a business. There is a Navy Seal trainer and he said leadership is simple, but it's not easy. This applies to business. You are trying to offer some value to someone at a price that will create some value for you. Pretty straight forward but the combinations of that are nearly infinite.
It is a great challenge where you learn a lot. And little bits of growth every day add up to a lot of growth over time.
Be Awesome, Shave Well, Go do something you enjoy.
