President/CEO Tim Cargle is Inspiring the Masses with his Powerful story of Adversity and Triumph
Today we’d like to introduce you to Tim Cargle.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
My name is Tim Cargle. I am President of Skin & Scalp Restoration Clinic and Skin & Scalp Academy. We offer Scalp Micro Pigmentation services also known as SMP. SMP is a alternative to hair loss restoration. We use medical grade pigment ink and a micro needle to create tiny hair follicle like dots to replicate hair follicles. I’ve cut hair since I was 9 yrs old. My mother cut my hair and totally butchered my hairline. From that point on, I set out to learn how to cut hair. Fast forward years later, I became an entrepreneur and have had several business ventures. While Looking for a new business venture, I stumbled across my wife’s cousin who was previously bald. I noticed something different about him this time. He had hair! or at least I thought. He had a low buzz cut, with a sharp crispy hairline. I thought his hair magically grew back. To my surprise, he chuckled and said this is Micro Pigmentation. After asking tons of questions, he told me about a certification training program in Maryland that I could enroll in to receive my certification. Without hesitation, I immediately started to do research and thought to myself, this is it. This will be my new business venture. I packed my family up and we went to Maryland. After much training and receiving my certification, I began the process of opening my own clinic.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
The challenges we faced when we first opened were piled as high as a mountain. First, the health department is the gate keeper. Similar to opening a restaurant, the health department has all of these requirements before I could open. Second, before we could open for business, we were paying all of these bills just waiting to officially open and start receiving payment. Once we finally were approved to open (5 months later), we thought it was smooth sailing from there. Nope. No one knew us and even worse, no one within 100 miles of us had ever heard of Micro Pigmentation let alone why they would come to us to get it. It was a disaster. We didn’t give up though. We buckled down and re-strategized our marketing approach. We figured out that we needed to educate the public on what SMP was and why they needed it from us. We also became very diligent in our word of mouth approach. It worked. I performed the procedure on a couple of friends and got really good content. Once we started to show the public real results, customers started coming in from all over the Midwest. Our education marketing plan was working. Once people understood what we offered, men and women alike wanted we what we had to offer.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Scalp micro-pigmentation (SMP) is a non-invasive treatment that effectively conceals the visible contrast between the hair and scalp skin. We accomplish this by using specialized micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. This produces a natural look that creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles. In my opinion, SMP is the best option for hair loss. I’ve seen just about every kind of hair loss and my clients have told me horror stories about the lengths they’ve gone to for regrowth. Rather it be hair transplant, pills, creams, laser caps, injection shots, nothing works. A least how it’s advertised. Micro Pigmentation is guaranteed to work because we are not trying to regrow the hair. We are concealing and blending balding and thinning spots with pigment ink. Not to be confused with regular tattoo ink. I believe customers choose us over the competition because we take our craft very serious. We understand the psychological damage that hair loss can have on a person’s self esteem. We use the finest equipment and are constantly searching for new and innovative ways to better ourselves. Our customer’s satisfaction is our #1 priority. This is mirrored in our 5 star google rating. When you read our customer reviews, they represent real people who trusted us and received stellar service.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
I can’t speak for everyone but my first step in trying to achieve success was a relationship with God. He gave me direction, wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Without him there is no success for me. Besides God, writing your vision on paper or computer is key. I use my phone’s notes app to write everything. Next is creating the end goal. This will allow a person to create smaller broken up goals that lead up to the end goal. In the Micro Pigmentation business, we learned a lot through trial and error. We made many mistakes and wasted thousands of dollars doing so. Now, through our Skin & Scalp Academy, we teach and certify regular people with zero experience to become SMP specialist themselves. We have the entire blueprint from start to opening their own clinics. They don’t need college, or a long drawn out training process. Contact www.skinandscalpacademy.com and we can get them started on the road to success.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success to me is a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ first. Next is being able to provide for my wife and kids. My family means everything to me. They push and motivate me to go out each day and work smart and hard. Some people measure success with just money. While money is very important, it’s not everything. Good health, strong mind, peace, love, joy, happiness are things money can’t buy. Success means balance in every area of your life.
What’s next for you?
Our next move is to continue offering the best Micro Pigmentation service the Midwest has to offer. Also, our goal is to train and certify 1,000 students. Hair loss is everywhere and happens to almost everyone no matter the race, height, weight, sex, gender or where you live on the planet. We need more Micro Pigmentation specialist to help take on this massive undertaking. We may also open clinics in other locations.
