How Lori Fudens Deals With Burnout And Continue Her Goal Of Training Others

A person’s appearance is an important part of their life as it helps provide them with confidence to get through life. And one way that people maintain their looks is by going to stylists who are well-equipped to get the job done efficiently.

But before a stylist can work their magic on people, they first have to learn the basics of the trade to be able to produce good results. Fortunately, those in the Florida area have a good source of knowledge to guide them in the industry.

Lori Fudens, is more than just a stylist, trainer, and salon owner. She is also an educator who facilitates classes to empower stylists who want to excel to higher potential and earn better by doing one on one education or group salon classes on color, business, social media, and money.

“I saw a need to help other stylists learn especially when they didn’t have a mentor or training system near them,” she said.

How She Copes

Being a trainer and educator, Lori isn’t exempt from experiencing burnout especially if she spends a lot of time on her feet, or teaching others on days off. Yet, she has three ways to deal with it that others can take inspiration from.

The first is to stop but not quit.

“Take a deep breath. I spend time outside and breathe and take some self-care time! We can’t serve others from an empty cup right?” she said.

Next, Lori shifts her attention to helping someone achieve a goal for them.

“Anything, it doesn’t matter what it is. But, helping others is a way to reverse whatever is happening from any burnout,” she offered.

Lastly, she keeps a clear perspective on why she started, thus urging her to traverse the path that she has taken even further.

Why She Trains Others

According to Lori, she started as a hairstylist because she loves making people look and feel great about themselves. But her innate love for teaching others inspired her to start training others to be great hairstylists.

“I saw so many new stylists that were graduating beauty school and didn’t have the tools, or knowledge needed for the skill and self-confidence to build a good hair career. So when I was teaching salons as a brand educator I saw a bigger need and a huge gap of learning in our industry,” she said.

Eventually, Lori’s goal is to be able to help more hairstylists outside her own geographical area.

For Lori, it was important for her to get out to more people and offer the knowledge and tools that she possesses.

“I believe if you have a great thing, a product or service, and you truly give to others who need it and you help people selflessly and give way more than expected, it comes back,” she said.
