Today we talk to Janine Mattera, one of the owners of Mane Maven, an award-winning extension salon and beauty bar in Rumson, NJ. The stylists there have cultivated an ambiance that offers a true experience when it comes to Women’s Hair Cuts, Barbering, Extensions and Blowout Packages. Janine tells us about what it was like starting a business, having to treat your partnership like a marriage, correcting one another when something doesn’t get done. As of the recording of this episode she is currently single and she explains that running a business takes up a lot of time and therefore has less time to allocate to dating, so she has to focus more on the quality guys.

Life quote and tombstone phrase 23:45
“Just people who love what they do, they have fun while doing it. That is all me, I truly love what I do. I’m so passionate about it, but I actually have fun doing it. People ask me what my hobby is and I tell them doing hair. And they’re like, ‘No, that’s what you do for work.’ I’m like, ‘That’s also my hobby.’” 17:41
