Derek Clemens is a national hairdressor, the nation’s leading hairderer and father of three.
He lives in South Florida, a town where he hauls a load of hair in tow to clients.
But he also does other things with his time, including coaching the youth baseball team at his own school, Coral Gables, where he says the kids are learning.
I can’t do this without my kids and their moms.
And so, if there’s anything I can do to make them feel better, it’s to help them be better parents, Clemens said in a video he shared with CNNMoney.
He also said he hopes the day will bring out the best in the kids.
They need to know that they can do it, he said.
For the kids to learn, I think, I need to teach them the lesson that you do not let anything stop you.
But I also want them to be able to say, ‘I’m not letting anything stop me from doing this job.’
I want them — they need to have that pride.
This is the best job in the world.
And if I can help them make it even better, I can’t stop, Clemen said.
