Why did you get into barbering?

To be honest, I was a mechanic from when I was 15 and by 18 I was kind of lost as to what I wanted to do. It was actually my aunt and sister, who are hairdressers, that suggested hairdressing. I was a bit too rough around the edges so barbering was suggested, and 20 years later I kind of figured I'll stick with it
