It’s a Small World

Some time ago, my brother, Dean and I were talking about business opportunities. You see, he was in the process of moving back to Sydney from Melbourne and was thinking about going into business for himself. He is a great hairdresser but had lost most of his clientele in the years he had lived in Melbourne so he was thinking that it was going to be difficult to get back into the industry in Sydney. I suggested that he start his own business — but one with a twist — a hairdressing service that cuts your hair in your office.

A short time later, OfficeHair was born.

Of course, I have been pushing him into the world of blogging. And lo and behold, we just had our first blogger-in-common moment. I was suggesting that he try to hook up with some Australian bloggers who specialise in the Australian fashion and style scene … and sure enough he met up with Sara the Bargain Queen who I had met at the bloggers hookup after Ad:Tech. Just goes to show that it is a small world after all!

Oh, and in case you were wondering, I was following a little hypertext love tonight and ended up at Kevin Dugan’s excellent blog. As I scrolled through his past posts I found this great photo and had to share.

  1. Hey Gavin,
    That’s a very smart idea for a hairstyling business and a very cool blog. There’s definitely nothing like the freedom of owning your own business.
    The blogging world is incredibly small. While the rest of the world my be separated by 6 degrees of separation, I think bloggers are probably separated by only 1 or 2 degrees. It’s just amazing the power of blogging and online communities at connecting us and taking down geographical (and other) boundaries.

  2. Gavin – Thanks for the kind words. I’m subscribed to your blog and enjoy it. I guess that means we’re members of the mutual admiration club.
    And that pic of JLo? Priceless. Wish I had taken it.

  3. Hey, thanks for the mention and if you think the blogging world is small, then the hair industry must be insestuous. I must say that the nerd in me is finding blogging slightly addictive and now I’m wondering if two sites is enough to write on and so many good ones to read.
