My background as an entrepreneur
My current challenges
Technology and Internet: I would like to do a live podcast using several platforms. I need help continuing monetizing off of product, tools and Merch, using Amazon and other platforms. I need advice about contracts for those that are renting space inside of the barber shop.
Actions I’ve taken so far
We just started debut our podcast using InstaGram Live and YouTube. I sell product, tools and merch off of my website. I’m using a basic contract for those that’s working at the barber shop.
My future goals
I plan to open a Salon Suites in the near future. I would like to open several Master Barber HUBs across the country. This will give the traveling barber a place to service their customers in other cities.
My motivations to work with a mentor
I know how important it is to work with mentors for growth and advice.
About my venture

The Brown Brothers, Marichal J and Rodney Brown became barbers over 30 plus years ago under the guidance of their father, Earlie D. Brown. Mr. Brown was a Master Barber for over 50 years and taught his two youngest sons everything that he knew about barbering and entrepreneurship. In 1974, Mr. Brown acquired Master Barber Shop in Oak Park, Sacramento. After his passing in 1998 the Brown Brothers took over the family business carrying on his fathers’ legacy until it closed in 2013. After an 8 year hiatus, the brothers are making a triumphant return to Oak Park, where it all started.
The HUB is located at 3400 Broadway, Suite 200 (on the corner of Broadway and 34th Street), inside of the newly built Union Park @ The Triangle, a unique creative office and retail working environment. It is within walking distance to 40 Acres Complex, The Guild Theatre, several eateries, and the popular McClatchy Park.
