Duane Stoolmaker, barber of the greats
I studied finance at Michigan State University and took a job on Wall Street with Wells Fargo Securities Investment Banking. I worked two years of 80 hour weeks out in the “big city” and decided perhaps it wasn’t for me. Each time I would visit campus, I had a hard time returning to NYC. I missed the area, the people, and MSU. It was summer 2013, when I finally came home.
Upon returning to the area, I established a financial advisory/insurance business. I needed a new barber, dry cleaner, etc. It was nearly a whole year before I took my father’s suggestion and headed to Arkie’s to get a haircut. Why had I been so stubborn? After one cut from Duane Stoolmaker, I realized that I had found my barber. Needless to say, I am not planning on finding a different barbershop any time soon.
