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 as working 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 newfound 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 to 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.
