Katie Thiede, CEO of Bright Pink

It’s been 25 years since Radio AMB (American Made Beauty) host Patty Schmucker was diagnosed with breast cancer. In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Patty welcomed two special guests to her October 2018 program: Katie Thiede, CEO of Bright Pink, and Winn Claybaugh. Together they discussed Bright Pink’s role in the fight against breast and ovarian cancer and how awareness is our first line of defense.

Katie has been a tireless champion for women’s health and has devoted her entire career to such organizations. Winn is an advocate of women’s health who believes that cancer needs to be high on everyone’s awareness list and that giving to organizations like Bright Pink will help assure a healthy and prosperous future for all women. Paul Mitchell and Paul Mitchell Schools have been proud sponsors of Bright Pink in their annual cancer awareness months fundraising campaigns, donating well over $300,000 to date.

Listen in as Patty, Katie, and Winn talk about dealing with a tough diagnosis and the best preventative measures women can take on a daily basis.

Finding It Hard to Be Civil? Refill Your Reservoir!

Finding It Hard to Be Civil? Refill Your Reservoir!

There's a lot of talk in the news these days about the absence of civil discourse. People are being so mean -- in person, online, and in the media. What will it take to turn things around? The answer is easier than you might think: be nice, be nice, be nice! Start by thinking before you speak, and ask yourself these questions: Is it nice? Is it necessary? Is it true?  Would you want it to be said about you?

Sofia Donates $5,300 to Fred Jordan Mission

Sofias check - WC photo choice.jpeg

As Sofia’s parents, we plan to leave her a multifaceted legacy—a business that can sustain her, the gift of a loving extended family, and so much more. Perhaps most important, we want to give her a spirit of giving and teach her to use her voice and her kind heart to make a difference in the lives of others. We want Sofia to succeed in business and in life ... and that includes teaching her how to be a successful philanthropist.

To give our 6-year-old daughter an early start in the world of giving back, we created "Sofia's Kind Heart," an online donation campaign to benefit the charity of her choice.

First, we introduced Sofia to a number of ways to help other people. When she expressed an interest in helping homeless children, we arranged a meeting through Willie Jordan, director of the Fred Jordan Mission, which serves thousands of homeless individuals and families in the Skid Row area of Los Angeles.

Then we established an online donation site and spread the word. Sofia's Kind Heart raised over $5,300, which Sofia proudly presented to Debbie Smith of the Fred Jordan Mission onstage at the Paul Mitchell Schools FUNraising Gala in Beverly Hills on May 21, 2018.

“My name is Sofia and I'm 6 years old. I am using my voice to raise money for the Fred Jordan Mission because I like helping people.”

June 2018 MASTERS Audio Club Features Emmy-Nominated Hairstylists Dean Banowetz and Meagan Herrera-Schaaf

Dean Banowetz, the Hollywood Hair Guy, is the locks wizard behind celebrity staples like Leeza Gibbons, Simon Cowell, Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Tony Robbins, and Shark Tank's Lori Greiner. After owning and operating a full-service salon in Bettendorf, Iowa, Dean moved to Los Angeles and landed a gig on the nationally syndicated series Extra. Then he took a job on American Idol, where he styled hair for Ryan Seacrest and all of the contestants. Since then, he’s worked on many Hollywood projects, including So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With The Stars, American Idol (7 seasons), America's Got Talent, the Daytime Emmy Awards, and the 2014 Grammy Awards, to name just a few.

Dean has received four Emmy nominations for Dancing with the Stars (twice), Grease Live, and So You Think You Can Dance, as well as three Hollywood Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist Guild nominations, including wins for Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance.

Shortly before graduating from Paul Mitchell The School Great Lakes, Meagan Herrera-Shaaf won a retail sales contest at her school. The prize was a trip to Los Angeles to work with Dean Banowetz on American Idol. After just six days, Dean—realizing that her passion and determination were above and beyond most 19 year olds—offered her a job as an assistant on the show. After three seasons at American Idol, Meagan moved to the Daytime Emmy–winning show Clean House and joined the Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist Union, Local 706, which allowed her to work on major motion pictures and television programs.

Since then Meagan’s career has flourished: her TV and movie credits include Jack Reacher, The Hunger Games, America’s Got Talent, The X Factor, Hangover 2, NBC’s The Voice, and many more. She has one Emmy nomination (The Voice, 2017) and four Guild nominations (winning the 2016 award for Pitch Perfect 2).

Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Dean and Meagan give an exclusive, in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at what it’s really like to do hair in the entertainment business, including award shows, top-rated TV shows, major motion pictures, and more. Everyone can benefit from their advice on attention to detail, the discipline of anticipation, clearing the clutter, and having an attitude of kindness.

Personalizing "Suffering"

Although my dear friend Paul Lambert wrote the following blog prior to the horrific Las Vegas shootings of October 2017, his message deeply applies to that heartbreak, too. The main lesson I've gained from this is that even though many of us weren't in Las Vegas, it doesn't mean we're not suffering. All of us are in pain, and all life experiences come with lessons. Let's learn ours.

Personalizing "Suffering"
by Paul Lambert

Lambert, Paul.jpeg

The events in Puerto Rico exhibit suffering and misfortune in a way that impacts us all. Suffering, whether personal or seen from afar, has consequences – it causes us to pause, to lose our edge, and it impairs our confidence and momentum. Because of these consequences, suffering can make us feel literally stuck and paralyzed until things get better.

"When suffering knocks at your door and you say 'there's no seat for you,' it tells you not to worry because it brought its own stool."

People in Puerto Rico have our attention right now, but without a doubt, someone near you is probably suffering, too. It may be a family member, a relative, a good friend, or a coworker. It may be that they are feeling unconnected or unheard, experiencing an emptiness inside, suffering extreme financial pressure, or suffering from a physical condition they aren't openly sharing.

Many Americans have been marginalized while they suffer. Let's start our week this week by committing to being more aware of those suffering (especially those we know). Let's be more active in comforting them, befriending them, and doing our part in addressing the source of their suffering.

You may be suffering – yourself – today, too. Right where you are. Right now. Take a moment and examine your situation. Have you ever thought there may be an upside to suffering? I believe there is. Discovering things through suffering may be an important part for what's next in your life. While suffering, we are open to discoveries that otherwise wouldn't be, that may have a direct effect on our future.

Suffering comes wrapped in many different packages – but in the midst of struggling, feeling defeated, or dealing with unbearable stress and pain – remember God is working.

Concentration camp survivor and author Corrie ten Boom has some wonderful thoughts on these subjects:

"Don't bother to give God instructions, just report for duty."

"Make sure that prayer is your steering wheel, not your spare tire,"

"Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God."

I'M GOING TO RE-READ THIS BLOG OFTEN to strengthen my faith and be reminded that God is present and at work during my times of suffering. How about you? Always remember you are not alone, you are loved and forgiven, and you are meant to move on and get beyond situations that seem intolerable.

Wishing you a courageous week ... Your friend,

– Paul Lambert
