How patience and persistence create mastery

Crystal Gause-Moore's grooming career has taken her from Petco to the founding of her own shop. She's learned patience and persistence, mastering her craft in the face of struggle. Fourteen years after grooming for the first time, Crystal continues to be inspired by other creators and their successes, channeling that inspiration into the grooming experience at Buttaz Puppy Cutz.

"My advice to other groomers is to be patient. You aren't gonna learn everything overnight. Learn to take constructive criticism and perfect your skills."
