Meet AJ Asmar, the Farm Boy Taking over the Beauty Industry

When AJ Asmar landed in the U.S. at 15, he did not know he would one day become a trendsetter in America’s hair and beauty industry. A Palestinian farm boy from a town outside Jerusalem, Asmar couldn’t speak English but had to work immediately to support himself. Asmar started his career at a family-owned beauty products supply store in Baton Rouge, Lousiana, and worked his way up to become a manager at 25. Unfortunately, he only lasted in the position for three years before they fired him for poor management style. Instead of looking for another position elsewhere, Asmar unplugged from the worker mentality and embarked on his journey as an entrepreneur. That marked the beginning of massive success and freedom Asmar could never have envisioned in his entire life.

Asmar is the founder and CEO of two innovative brands taking the hair and beauty industry by storm: Hair Queen Beauty and Meltdown. Hair Queen Beauty was the first brand Asmar established shortly after leaving his former role, and it is one of the fastest-growing ethnic hair and beauty companies. From a one-man operation established in Meridian, Mississippi, Hair Queen Beauty is currently a rising giant with 6 outlets in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Hair Queen Beauty does more than $25M in sales annually and supports over 100 families in its 6 facilities. Asmar’s new brand, Meltdown, is a lace glue application system for wigs that are sold in 500+ retail stores across the U.S.

Getting these brands where they are now was an uphill task for Asmar. In the initial stages of his business, nobody knew who he was because he didn’t have access to the leading brand name within the hair & beauty industry. As in most industries, limited brand power meant some companies would not sell to Asmar at all. Determined to make his mark, Asmar refused to back down and outworked his competition. Losing his competitors left suppliers no choice but to sell to Asmar and thus began a series of long-lasting relationships that are still thriving. Today, those accounts are some of Asmar’s best assets, and he has over $10M+ in credit with the top 5 major hair companies. These include Shake n’ Go, Outre, Sensational Hair, and Jinny Beauty just to name a few.

A go-getter who believes nothing is impossible, Asmar is currently putting the final touches on what he describes as his most ambitious project yet. His latest venture will be an attempt to open the world’s largest hair and beauty supply store with an outrageous 155,000 sq. ft. brick-and-mortar location in Nashville, TN. Asmar believes he has what it takes to make the project successful and will soon celebrate hitting another milestone.

From his considerable experience in the hair and beauty industry, Asmar knows that most people hate shopping at their local beauty supply store because of the lack of diversity. His mission is to continue to change that in more locations in the U.S. and later expand globally. In the next few years, Asmar hopes to scale his company further and build an empire that brings in $500M+ in sales annually. He also hopes to share his story on global stages with millions of people and inspire them to just unplug and start their businesses as he did.

Here’s a statement from Asmar regarding his project “We just launched The Retail University Training Technology that’s going to impact millions of retail business owners globally and here’s how.

The Retail University is a Virtual Interactive Training Technology Platform that I developed to helped me scale my business and turn my self from a business operator to a business owner. 

After over 20 years of retail experience I’ve realized that a lot of Retailers are leaving a lot of money on the table by not properly training managers and sales team. 

I’ve developed a new way train my team that is fitting for the new world we live in. 

The Retail University Training Technology  is a virtual and interactive platform that has short videos that is accessible by your phone, laptop or iPad. It’s a program that would also have daily reporting sent via text or email so that business owners can hold their staff accountable. I believe that in-order to have an effective training you need these for Keys.

  3. Repetition
  4. Practice and Role play  

The Retail University can also help the average person start a retail business, online or brick mortar and has a step-by-step strategies that I’ve used to scale my business from zero to 100 million.

Personal Trainer Kirk Anderson Is Inspiring People to Live Fit and Look Good

Obesity is a silent pandemic that has affected most of the world’s population. As people are becoming aware of the impact of obesity, several health regimes and fad diets have popped up. While these may show quick results, most of the time, they are not sustainable. Kirk Anderson, a personal trainer and fitness coach, believes that misconceptions and misinformation are the main reasons behind weight loss failure. This is where he is making a difference with customized workout plans, diet, and supplements for people in their 40s who want to look great and feel better. 

Anderson is a 49-year-old certified personal trainer and nutritionist. Unlike other personal trainers working in the fitness industry, Anderson started his journey quite late. He was a business professional and had no plans to venture into the fitness industry. It was in his late 30s when Anderson realized he was clinically obese and wanted to transform his body. Like most people, he started by searching health regimes and diet plans on Google. He ended up losing some weight at 37, but within two years regained all the lost weight. 

Obesity became a serious threat to Anderson‘s health as he developed high blood pressure and also became pre-diabetic. That’s when he realized the value of the right information and guidance in a weight loss journey to make it a success. Anderson hired some of the best professional bodybuilders to transform his body and reach his weight loss goals. Under professional supervision and guidance, Anderson witnessed positive changes in his body. This inspired him to delve deeper into health and fitness. He dedicated 4,000 hours to learning about health and nutrition to become a fitness coach, and now he is leveraging this knowledge to help others in their weight loss journeys. 

Anderson believes that if a weight loss journey is about investing in yourself, it will yield returns in the form of better health and overall appearance. Whether it is about losing 100 pounds of fat or gaining 40 pounds of muscle, professional guidance is indispensable in this journey. Just like people cannot file a legal case by appearing in the courtroom without the assistance of a lawyer, similarly, hitting the gym without a trainer every day will not bring visible results. Weight loss is not just about becoming fit—it is about adopting a lifestyle that syncs well with your needs to give you visible results. 

Having defeated obesity in his 40s, Anderson is a living example to those who want to embark on a sustainable weight loss journey. He is probably one of the best coaches to understand the mindset of someone suffering from obesity because he has walked the same path. Anderson offers online services to make his weight loss program accessible to all. All his training sessions are conducted online and tailored to his clients’ needs and goals. Besides physical activity, Anderson also focuses on the correct diet and the use of supplements to get visible results. 

Anderson wants to reach as many people as possible to help them transform their bodies. His aim as a trainer is to educate people on the right path to take on their way to transforming their health and ensure they sustain the journey in the long term.
