Tired of feeling like you’re working so hard on your Salon business… with little to no reward?

Jenna and I discuss how to find happiness in your business that doesn’t require you to work more hours in the salon or hire new team members. How to find happiness that actually starts from within YOU.

…instead, your Salon’s culture is forever changing and evolving. So the focus needs to be on keeping it positive, 95% of the time, each and every day. To do this, you need systems in your business that are ‘human’ proof so that your team is set up for success, regardless of the individuals within it.
