When I first started dreaming of EVERYMAN it was simple.
A single concept that elevates Barbering, Menswear, Coffee, & Alcohol all under the mission of mentorship.
That mission hasn't changed but our business continues to morph into the dynamic, multifaceted concept it was meant to be. At EVERYMAN we don't look at ourselves as resident experts in any of the areas we operate. Instead, we view ourselves as explorers and curators constantly searching, learning, and growing.
Over the past decade I've been doing just that.
Searching, Learning, & Growing.
I've built relationships in the coffee, bar, menswear, and barbering community all over Oklahoma and beyond. Those relationships coupled with hard work are beginning to bear fruit. I've humbled myself to what I don't know and I've been uncompromising in my relentless search for knowledge and creating a lasting team to champion the categories in which we operate. I'm indebted to our team for their buy-in which is showcased daily. They are to credit for our success. I'm also thankful for the many clients that trust us with their business even as we continue to learn. Indeed, humility most frequently leads me to the all too real conclusion that, even after a decade, we've just scratched the surface.
I'm committed to a lifetime of learning and service in all of the areas we operate here at EVERYMAN. I want to bring value to our clients, our community, and our team. It is in that spirit that I'm excited to announce I will be starting Barber School this December. This decision did not come without much thought, prayer, and the support of those closest to me.
I'm looking forward to this new journey.
I'm slightly nervous.
I'll be behind the chair instead of in it.
But the time is right. I'm ready.
Thanks for reading this.
It means the world to me.
Love you all.
