David’s Answer

Hi Delterio! My name is David and I am currently a Sales Development Representative at Twilio. My advice to you would be to pursue a career that you see yourself enjoying. Whether that be a barber or a fireman. You can always learn how to cut hair while pursuing a career as a fireman, and if that doesn't work you'll still have the ability to be a barber! Start practicing with your friends, look up barber schools, find out more information on how to become a fireman and go from there. I wish you the best!

David recommends the following next steps:

Search for barber schools near you
Start practicing and learning more about the skill
Search up more information on how to become a fireman
Weigh out your options
Do what you want to do!

I agree with David's answer. These two careers could work well together if you wanted to do both. As a barber, you can set your own hours/days of availability that fit around other activities. I would suggest that you start asking questions of people that are already in those roles. Next time you get your hair cut, ask how the barber started their career. Some go to a school, some choose to apprentice with other professionals to prepare for licensing. You may also be able to schedule time to visit a local firestation to talk with the men and women who work there ask your questions. In my experience, many are very happy to share their experiences and help inspire others to follow this passion. Just make sure to call ahead as I am sure there are new guidelines for visiting the station during the pandemic. Good luck!
