We had the good fortune of connecting with Kerry Minter and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kerry, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I don’t look at it as risk , I look at it as goals that has to get done ! No matter how big it’s got to get done . One of the things that happens internally is if the goal is not done I feel like I let myself down and the desire to accomplish the goal never goes away . It stays there until I complete it then I feel the weight on my shoulders lift! So not risks but goals .
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Yes ! What sets me apart is my approach. I love to put smiles on people’s faces and see them get healed and I always look for that light in their eyes . I am an artist and that ripples through every creative outlet I do . Barbering is art. Styling is art, writing is an art. Singing is art and a lot of times I am singing while cutting hair lol ! Let the songs get good to me , but what’s funny is that not only do my clients enjoy it, they join in and start singing as well . I think in any outlet I am performing at that moment I create a place of freedom for those around me and freedom without judgment brings a certain level of peace .
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Wine is always a good option. We can just start there lol! If there’s any live music you can bet we will be there. If there’s any place to get a good two step in we will be there ! If there’ are any rooftop lounges open we will be there! If there are a collection of beautiful people in a certain area we will be there lol!!!!! Honestly no strong itinerary, we will just find something to do as we go. My best friends are jokesters just like me so we can go anywhere and have a good time . Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shout out my Mom. Moms are your first cheerleader and you tell them everything. My mother knows all of my goals and she encourages me and I mean really almost overly encourages me if that’s even a thing lol ! She prays over me and celebrates with me every time I accomplish them! Also my friends! They all are go getters ! I’m surrounded by entrepreneurs and we all support each other and we all celebrate one another.
