Work With Me

The Average Salon Owner Spends 121 days each year putting out fires & spinning wheels instead of growing their business and living a life of intention.


too much to do

I get it... Lets talk about it!

Owning 'Just Another Salon' is not who are or what you want out of your life.

You’ve slogged your self to death to get this far - you know you're made for great things and to make a difference for your clients, your team and for your family.


The hours you're putting in, between the business, your clients and your family leaves you nothing for yourself.


  • You're working hard!
  • You have one eye on your laptop while you're at home with the family - Overwhelmed with the to-do list.
  • You feel guilty when at work for not spending more time with your loved ones - It isn’t what you got into business for!

Despite all this going on, you want to create a business that's bold and stands for something with out losing your self in the middle of it all.

You can create your own schedule, spend time with your loved ones and have a paycheque that meets your needs, wants and desires.

let me show you how
having it all

You can have it all...

  • You can work the hours you want without having work on your day off!
  • You can earn enough to enjoy life and give your family everything they need.
  • You can have a steady stream of clients to keep your team fully booked.
  • You can enjoy being away from your business, feel completely in control without the guilt!

That's exactly what I did
& you can do it too!

Salon coaching

That's exactly how I did it & now help others to do the same

I so loved being creative with my clients & when I realised I could exercise that creativity running my business, I got addicted!

So I worked hard for my clients and my team but often, in the early day's 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…


My business coach offered to ‘break my arms’ so I could create time to grow my business. It was good advice.

When I started to work ON my business and not IN it I got focused. I started to make more money. I evolved from tired and overwhelmed to freedom of time and thought.

Owning and running a salon is hard work...

I built a business with intention & designed my life that gave me freedom, served my clients, grew my team and left plenty in the tank to be there for my family.

I could have it all - if I really wanted it.

 I had realised my dream, I was being a creative entrepreneur and no longer just working hour upon hour to make ends meet.

You’re a salon owner who wants to grow & that’s what this is all about. I work with a small group of woman to help you build and fast track the success of your salon?

Areas I support you through individual coaching & giving you full access to the Academy Resources & Trainings:

  • Branding, Social Media & Promotional Marketing strategies.
  • The building, leading, training, and managing of a Rock Star Team.
  • Transitioning from doing clients by the hour, to leverage your time and fast track growth
  • Freeing yourself up from the stress of owning a business to enjoy life outside of work!
  • Profitability & Pricing - Your finances should set you free

The goal is to help you get more clients and transform your business into a well-oiled machine, build your team,  and get you out from only being behind the chair and working ON your business instead of IN it - so you can spend time with friends, family or do yoga (if that's your thang)!

Running your own salon was your dream, but it’s a big job! So why does it feel more like a daydream than your actual reality right now?
