Jeff Laub, creator of Blind Barber: How hustle took one man from beauty school dropout to empire builder

Jeff Laub dreamt up the barber shop-bar combo, Blind Barber. If you haven’t been to one of the many locations, it’s the coolest concept. Walk in the front door, and you’re in a slick, fully operational barber shop with its own product line. Head on through the door in the back of the shop, and you’ll be welcomed into a bar that serves a mean negroni. But Jeff’s career didn’t start out a smashing success. Hear how he went from being a beauty school dropout to creator of the singularly successful Blind Barber on this week's episode. Then shop Jeff and Alex's favorite products. Every episode of "Finding Inspo with Alex Barinka" is shoppable through e-commerce company Verishop. Jeff and host Alex Barinka have curated their favorite products in the Finding Inspo store at New Verishop customers can take 20% off their first purchase with the code INSPOJL (exclusions may apply; code expires 30 days after episode publication and cannot be combined with other promotions).
