In this episode, I interview Mikey Moran, the CEO of Private Label Extensions in Atlanta, Georgia, a hair business that helps entrepreneurs start their own by providing them with wholesale hair extensions, branding, and websites. Mikey Moran is the best-selling author of the book Fearless Beauty: The Hair Business Blueprint.
Started the hair and beauty business in 2014 and has been running it for seven years. Mikey has expanded his original idea into 10 different brands, 5 retail locations, and a partnership with Shopify. He has grown the business by reaching over $10 million in revenue and his consistency in optimizing marketing strategy yields the biggest impact.
The number one thing Mikey has recommended for marketing and fast-growing business is making use of the right platform and technology to conform to the fast-changing world where a lot of people rely on websites or social media. He believed that social media is now the most powerful tool in marketing.
