Hi, I’m Eric Fisher. I am the owner of 4 salons, a beauty school and a business education company for beauty schools and professionals. I have won a few hair awards, a few business awards, a few industry awards. I have a passion for learning. Because of my own thirst for knowledge, I am also passionate about sharing with all of you. The Eric’s Favs series is just that. Me sharing with you the things I am inspired by right now.
my favorite ways to ‘self care’ during the busy holiday season.
As we enter the busy holiday season, one of my favorite ways to take care of myself is to exercise daily. I spend at least 5 minutes stretching and a good 45 minutes working out. My goal is to be routine with my working out – which means every day. I also believe in walking as much as I can. I always take the stairs instead of the elevator and I park as far away as I can.
my favorite thing going on in photography.
I love hair but I am also very much into photography right now. (NAHA photoshoots!) Editorial work like the really old black and white photos have really captured my attention. I love looking at those “dirty” (and by this I mean gritty, un-photoshopped) black and white photos and applying what I see to what I’m doing right now. Edward Weston’s work is captivating.
A favorite thing i learned this year.
This year has been a crazy one! I think one of the most important things I learned this year is that you are never too young, nor too old to pursue your dreams. As you know, I am a HUGE reader. During the shutdown, I did a lot of reading. Two of the books that really resonated with me were “Atomic Habits” by James Clear and “Peak Performance” by Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness. What I learned from these two books is that ultimately, success is based on creating good habits.
my favorite thanksgiving food.
The food item that really “makes” Thanksgiving for me, is stuffing! I don’t even really have a particular kind that is my favorite – I love it all!
November is always a time to reflect on the year and remember what you are thankful for. I challenge you to think of 5 things you are thankful for each day. Write them down. You will be surprised by how much this can change your way of thinking. And how much you truly DO have to be thankful for.
