As a Salon Owner, you most likely have dreams that are not only for your Salon, but for your personal life as well. Perhaps it’s a dream house, financial freedom, being able to provide for others, or even a gym membership that you can’t quite justify with your current financial situation. It can start to…
Growing your Salon: it’s challenging. Can you relate?
Things are forever evolving in Salons; Owners have to constantly adapt systems and processes. Just like any evolution, things start to break. Perhaps what worked before, no longer will. Adapting is not always easy, but it does teach us fundamental lessons in return. Lessons, which I believe, are key to any successful Salon growth.
If you’re anything like I was, you never feel like your Salon is ‘complete’, always striving for improvement – and that’s great! Improving, however, means things can’t stay the same. There have to be constant shifts from ‘norm’ to ‘new’.
Here at Salon Owners Collective, we could not relate more to this. That’s why I’ve decided to bring in one of my very own – team leader and operations manager, Suzy.
Having been with us for over 3 years now, she’s witnessed and learned so many valuable lessons while helping grow the business to where it is today.
She’s chosen to share her two biggest lessons around team management which I know any Salon Owner will find helpful.
Have you ever wondered what people think when they walk past your Salon? Do they love the look of it or do they ignore it and move on?
As human beings we judge, even when we try not to, it’s just part of our nature.
We often read and hear so many recommendations and opinions from others, but let’s be honest, the strongest opinion we make is based on what we first see. That’s why it’s so important as a Salon to be visually appealing – both online and on the street.
How can we expect clients to walk through our doors if there’s nothing they see that draws them in?
In this episode, I’m chatting with the founder of Crowdspring, Ross Kimbarovsky. Knowing all things marketing, he provides us with strategies on how to brand a Salon in ways that attract more clients, more often.
Let’s face it, being a Salon Owner is challenging at times. It’s not something you instantly know how to master, it takes a lot of learning and adjusting along the way.
There are so many things to nail when it comes to running a Salon, from the team to the clients and sales.
So wouldn’t it be nice to have some simple yet effective advice from someone who’s tackled these aspects themself?
Well today I’m chatting with Mhairi McQueen. Mhairi is a member of my Salon Mastery Coaching Program, and has been in the industry for over 20 years and owned her own Salon for 5 of them.
Having seen amazing results in her salon, she’s filled with many tips on how to achieve them. How amazing that she’s chosen to share them with us!
Let’s tune in and see what advice she has in store for us…
I’m sure at one point or another, you’ve thought about expanding your Salon business, but have you ever thought about taking over a Salon that already exists?
This may sound scary, after all being the new face to a Salon environment and not knowing what to expect isn’t something we particularly like.
Even if you are the leader, you still feel the pressure of making a good impression…
In order for people to cooperate, they need to trust and respect their leader.
There are so many important factors to consider when purchasing a Salon, but I think one of the most important ones is your team.
In order to lead them well, you need to understand who they are.
The reality is, the Salon team is already established and you are walking in expecting them to follow your lead.
So how do you take over a team the right way? Well, today I’m chatting with Vivo founders James & Lynden who have done this. Owning over 90 successful Salons across New Zealand, they share their insights into what it takes to do so.
So let’s tune in to hear what they have to say…
