Salon Owners Podcast
I’ve been there.
You’re juggling too many balls, wearing too many hats and the pot is starting to boil over…
You get to the point where there’s so much going on in life that when even the smallest thing goes wrong – you lose it!
I think every Salon Owner can relate to this. We are businesswomen… creative entrepreneurs, but we’re also mothers, daughters, wives, partners, hairdressers, marketers, cleaning ladies, taxi drivers, councillors… OMG the list just doesn’t end!
And when the stress of wearing all those different hats starts to creep into our everyday lives, it can become hard to shake that off at the end of the day!
I want to help you take that stress away. Make life just that little bit easier, in any way you can.
So I’ve rallied the troops – my friends, colleagues and other Salon Owners who I work with- to share with you their tips to living a stress free life. Their Life Hacks!

When team members leave you, it can feel like you’ve been betrayed…
Like… “How dare they?!”… right? I totally understand that feeling of rejection when one of your team leaves, especially when they move to another Salon down the road!
We all want our staff members to be as invested in our Salon Business as we are… and we can easily forget that sometimes this just isn’t the reality.
Should we expect our team to be as invested in us?
I have a few opinions on this… plus an action plan that i’ve put together all around what to do when a team member leaves.
We must stand up and take action – get what’s ours, make ends meet, grow our business and get on with life…Continue Reading

And she said to me, “I’m living the Salon Madhouse life again.” And you know what, I remember those days really, really…Read the full article
