We had the good fortune of connecting with Yelena Dent and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Yelena, how do you think about risk?
Without taking actions with risk we don’t grow or we don’t grow as much. Because the comfort zone doesn’t takes us outside the box and only outside the comfort zone we are risking, stepping into the unknown, taking more responsibilities that maybe risky. Risk also takes us quickly to embody our life, to get to know ourselves maybe for the first time and step into the potential of polishing and expressing our Best Self. There are virtues like fearlessness, courage and faith that must be practiced if we are on a sturdy road of self-discovery and increasing our quality of life. Take actions – take risks!

What should our readers know about your business?
I run two businesses that intertwine and helping each other. As a hairstylist with my own private salon I get to do what I love with the hair and support the person with their life story at the same time. And the good thing is being a life coach and an energy healing practitioner I know how important to leave the person in a good stand about themselves and their decisions, and their hair looks fantastic as well. Versus, I have a hair client who said that she really appreciated my versatile skills because when she was coming to her previous stylist for many years she always left with the “drama baggage” from that stylist. By the way, I am an expert in straight and curly hair. I offer different techniques in color and cuts for both. And I love to serve men as well. I’ve been a hairdresser for over 14 years. For the last 2 years I have my own salon and I’m tremendously grateful to have this private space during Covid. It’s only myself and a client in a very safe environment. Same fact is true for my other business. I have a large demand right now for coaching and healing, in which I’m bathing for the last 18 years. The world is changing and many people are realizing that pharmaceutical medicine cannot provide for they the quality of health they want and they have to take responsibility for their own prevention, shift their nutrition, love their bodies and themselves emotionally. It’s time to wake up. And I’m here for many to support them with the tools and healing that people need to bring lasting changes in their lives and families.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love TopGolf, vegan eatery MetaBurger, Manitou Springs for Radiantly Raw chocolate place and hiking in the stunning beauty around this town
