This year, when you will enjoy your Thanksgiving meal with your loved ones, educate and surprise them with not so common thanksgiving facts. Thomas Salzano, a New Jersey-based guitarist, hairstylist, photographer, traveler, and a blogger shares some cool facts:
Thomas Salzano, a New Jersey-based expert hairstylist, traveler, photographer, and blogger lives by the words of Zen scholar Lao Tzu. Lao Tzu said, “Mastering others is a strength, mastering yourself is true power.” In the present world, these words hold truer than ever before. With a salon so popular and the variety of customers that he tends to, Salzano would easily find himself at his wit’s end every other day.
Self-awareness, Salzano says, is what keeps him calm under all circumstances. He credits all his success and ability to steer through tough times to self-awareness.
Self-awareness, Thomas says, is the ability to see oneself objectively. The ability to know one’s own strengths and weaknesses, and instead of letting them guide you, you become a master of your own emotions. You start responding instead of reacting, and things start falling into place a just bit more easily.
But then, one asks: How to unlock the doors to self-awareness? Salzano has the answers:Perceive Yourself Objectively:
It’s tough, and that makes it even more so important, remarks Salzano. See what you are good at, where you need to improve. Think of your accomplishments that really matter.
Jot Your Day Down:
Writing your day in a journal gives you a chance to introspect. It’s something that we all should do, but few are able to continue the streak.
Meditation brings you in the moment, the present and that’s where the key to serenity lies. Past breeds regret and anger, future brings anxiety, and the moment right now, it brings peace.
Even if you do high-intensity workout for 15 minutes, your body releases happiness hormones that again, make you more aware of yourself.
Thomas Salzano has been doing the above mentioned for many tears, and his calm demeanor is a sure sign of this. Incorporate these habits in your life, and be the person you want to be.
From the outdoor adventures to the winter sports instructions and training, these types of businesses are only profitable for few months of a year. Furthermore, generating a year’s revenue in a limited time is a challenging job. Thomas N Salzano, a New Jersey-based hairstylist, photographer, guitarist, and a blogger shares some tips on how to give an off-season boost to your seasonal business.
Here’s what he has to say:
Save money during off-season
In this case, there are two scenarios;
Do something that entices your customers to visit you during the times of the year when they would normally choose to pass otherwise. Let’s take an example:
A man named Vicky started a beach hut business alongside the famous Frinton-on-sea. It was a kind of part-time business, usually ran from May to September.
For rest of the year, huts were empty.
After some time, Vicky came up with the idea of using huts as a location venue for family get-togethers and weddings.
Also, many couples started using the beautiful location for their pre-wedding photo-shoot.
In these ways, Vicky turned his seasonal business into a year-round one.
Try to cater customers who are living in some other places
There are some businesses that depend on weather or other geographical conditions.
A company named Big Feet Pajama sells an awesome line of pajama onesies. During summer and spring months, the business experiences a lower number of sales in the US. Obviously, it a weather-affected business.
In order to make up for the dip or to make it a year-round business, the company targets countries such as Australia and New Zealand where the winter season is in full swing at that time.
ConclusionIt’s difficult but it’s not impossible; every problem has a solution. You should be committed to your business irrespective of its type.

Some startups make it and some don’t. If your startup has fallen into the second category, you can still fix things up. Thomas Salzano, a New Jersey-based hairstylist, traveler, photographer, and blogger shares some tips that you can apply to your business to save it from getting shut down. Here’s what he has to say:
Remember your Vision
Successful entrepreneurs know where they are going and have a clear plan of how to get there.
So, resist the temptation to take unnecessary risks and start with your vision again. Analyze your strengths and weakness, define the roadmap and just do it.
Be cautious with expensesAt this point of time, don’t waste money on the things that are not important. Be stingy with your budget and make some tough decisions.
Define short-term goalsRemember you are not in a position to set long-term goals. Don’t even think about it; just define short-term goals that will give an instant push to your startup. Make a complete strategy or game-plan to achieve them.
Solve one problem at a timeDon’t try to do multi-tasking by solving all problems at once. Prioritize issues at hand, make a plan and solve them one-by-one.
Manage your timeAs a founder, it is of prime importance for you to dedicate time for refining your company strategy and goals. And when the business is not doing well, keep your schedules clear so that you have ample time to think.
Be responsive & accessibleWhether you are in B2B or B2C businesses, addressing customer queries and requests promptly is always recommended. Don’t let your customers wait; they are your assets both in good or bad time.
According to a report by Startup Genome, more than 90 percent of startups fail and 10 percent of startups that do succeed encounter several near death experiences.
Every business, just like life, comes along with many ups and downs. And remember, when all your efforts and strategies go down the drain, start afresh. Try something new. As a wise man once said, “Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid to not try.” This is Thomas N Salzano, your trusted hairstylist, blogger, traveler, and a photographer signing off for now.
When it comes to choosing between a hair mask and hair conditioner, New Jersey based hair expert Thomas Salzano says it’s just like choosing between a great meal and makeup. While a great meal nourishes from inside out, makeup will only give you a surface level shine.
Conditioner is meant for nourishing the hair against damages. The key lies in making sure the conditioner matches your hair type. However, hair masks work in a wonderful way: they penetrate the scalp to reach the follicles.
Another interesting fact, conditioners show quick results, but they don’t last. Masks have long term effects, and thus, results aren’t instant, but gradual.
Whether it is a business trip or a family vacation, traveling can be a pricey affair. Thomas Salzano, a New Jersey based traveler, hairstylist, and a blogger has made a list of top 5 expensive travel destinations in the world. This list is inspired from the data collected by Hoppa (leading provider of airport transfers worldwide).
Traveling in Oslo (Norway) is still costlier than anywhere else in the world.
Oslo is followed by Zurich (Switzerland), Stockholm (Sweden), New York (United States of America), and Paris (France).
These 5 tourist destinations are popular for remarkable art pieces, hundreds of museums, stone architecture, lakes, and luxury hotels.
Aloe Vera is full of antibacterial and antiviral properties. Thomas Salzano, a New Jersey-based hairstylist, traveler, photographer, and blogger shares his knowledge regarding the use of Aloe Vera in reducing hair fall. Here’s what he has to say:
Massaging scalp with Aloe Vera juice repairs dead skin cells. It also acts as a conditioner and makes hair smooth and shiny. Further, Aloe Vera has a chemical which is similar to Keratin (primary protein of hair) that rejuvenates the hair with nutrients. Also, it prevents breakage and gives more elasticity to hair.
