Meet Larissa M.

After 20 years of salon business, I worked in online marketing & technology development, Business Development Manager at Timely Salon Software and co-founded app's for the Industry.

I discovered that I love helping Salon Owners with marketing strategies, the latest technology and working smarter, not harder in salon businesses.

As Business & Marketing Strategist & Mentor, I want to bring the expertise I've learned and other experts rocking it in business, to you and other salon owners like you. The Salon Owners Collective is a place to share what we know and grow our industry.

While working with Salon Owners I saw that many struggled in business and were not making enough money that could give them a lifestyle they could enjoy...

I used to be that person once and felt a need to help.

I realised through what I had learned I had the knowledge and experience to help other business owners like you get your time back.

I wanted to help Salon Owners like you thrive in your salon again because you feel inspired, earn the money that allow you to live a fulfilled life. You have time again and can be present with your loved ones with a business that serves YOU… and no longer be a slave to your own business as I once was.

Have you ever felt like this

I so loved being creative with my clients and when I realised I could exercise that creativity running my business, i got addicted to ‘doing’ business

So I worked hard for my clients and hard for my team… but often, in the early days I was the busiest stylist and while the others sat in the back room… and I brought in the most money while taking the least home…

 

I was afraid to let my clients down. I was afraid to not be seen to work hard as a leader for my team. I was afraid to make more money than those that worked for me.  I didn’t know what I should be doing to grow my business and how to help my team grow…

At times I often felt so overwhelmed that I’d want to sell and ‘just get out’.. but even the thought of that was just too much to put myself through.

 

I took on a business coach who offered to ‘break my arms’ so I could get off the floor and spend the time growing my business. As horrified as I was, it was good advice. But i didn't know what on earth to spend this ‘new-time’ on? What would I do?

 

As I started to work ON my business and not in it, the time freed me up to get creative, I started to make more money and I evolved from tired and overworked and got my passion for my business back.

 Owning and running a salon is hard...

The new found time and creativity allowed me to find new opportunities for the business and over time, each subsequent day I took off the salon's floor I not only made more revenue but also made more profit. I started to find new ideas to grow the business and I had the time in invest in and train, encourage and build the team to earn more and do better than I did. I had the time to create training programs, customer care programs and time to properly set budgets and focus on creating a sustainable business that would care for clients, staff and myself equally.

 

The year after I had my first baby (2006) I came back to clients only ½ day each week. And by  2010, (The year I had my second baby, and never came back to clients again)  the business increased its revenue close to $2 Million and made its largest profit ever.

It was living proof that the more I worked ON my business the better it performed.  I loved creating and developing a business and helping others succeed. I had realised my dream, I was being a creative entrepreneur and no longer just working hour upon hour to make ends meet.

Now I help Salon Owners & Industry Leaders design and build a business of Freedom & Profit through Salon Software, Courses, Community and Mastermind Coaching.
