Be a Daymaker

In the words of anthropologist Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Can it really be that simple? Do humans have the power to change the world, one person at a time? We do know that we can shape and alter our own destiny through setting personal goals and making sure that we realize them. Take continuing education, for example.

If you are looking to enhance your future in this growing industry, are serious about furthering your education and are looking for a stellar exhibit hall to boot, then America’s Expo for Skin Care & Spa® is the event for you. Now in its fourth year, this annual event will be held May 20–22 at Navy Pier in Chicago. This year, the interactive exhibit hall floor, along with Manufacturer Classrooms, will be available on Saturday and Sunday, May 20–21. The product-neutral Post-show Educational Workshops will be held on Monday, May 22.



Be sure to arrive at Navy Pier early on Sunday, May 21, because you won’t want to miss the show’s keynote presentation, beginning at 9 am and featuring David Wagner—a world-renowned hairstylist, artist, entrepreneur, educator, author and “Daymaker.” Innovator of the “pay-it-forward” movement of Daymaking, his philosophy for living a life that changes the world, one person at a time, through simple acts of kindness has captured the hearts of many. Wagner is the founder/owner of JUUT Salonspas, the original AVEDA concept salons, with eight JUUT locations in the Midwest and one in the San Francisco Bay Area. The facilities continually are voted “Best Salon” within their communities. He also is the best-selling author of Life as a Daymaker: How to Change the World by Simply Making Someone’s Day (Jodere Group, 2003).
