Shane Ogley is 30 and is the owner of Prestige Salon in Lancaster
What was your first job?
My first job was the same as most young boys, I was a paper boy, the fastest Scale Hall has ever seen! I had two rounds and I used to jog to keep me fit for my hobbies of boxing and football.
How do you relax after a hard day’s work?
Well, this is all changing now as my wife, Emma had a little boy on December 23, but I like to work out, then put my feet up on the sofa with a bit of Xbox. We enjoy a nice movie/TV programme together but that hasn’t happened recently, it’s been nappies and night feeds.
Proudest moment in business?
I have shops in Manchester and Kendal but opening the Prestige Salon with my business partner, Daryl, here in my home town of Lancaster, is my proudest moment. Three years on, I am proud of how popular it has become.
Most embarrassing moment at work?
When we first opened Prestige, I thought I would try trimming my eye brows as I’d noticed a lot of gents had them done in the salon. I run the business side of things and I am no good with a pair of clippers, but Daryl was busy, so I tried doing it myself. Unfortunately I took half my eyebrows off and had to then draw them back on. Daryl thought it was hilarious. I find it funny now, I suppose.
Your biggest vice?
I don’t think I have any vices, to be honest, although my wife may well say something different! Seriously, I don’t drink much or smoke. I don’t binge on crisps or chocolate. I suppose my worst trait is keeping tidy and dropping clothes where I stand, rather than folding them and tidying away.
Who is the biggest influence on your life?
A man called Anthony Robbins - this guy helped me get from being on the dole, to where I am now. However, I have never met him. He is a peak performance coach and I constantly read and listen to everything he puts out. The guy knows what he is talking about in all aspects of life, he is a genius and what he does for charity is unbelievable.
Word of business advice?
Simple advice really: Constantly evolving. Constantly improving. Constantly adding value.
