BREAKING: The Success of Your Salon Begins with You

What if I told you that the key to growing a Successful Salon is as simple as looking in the mirror? 

Now, I’m not saying that your dream Salon will magically appear if you look at yourself in the mirror and say ‘Tabitha’ three times. What I am saying is that you are the one who determines if your Salon is a success or not. 

I know it’s easy to get caught up in external factors like your team underperforming or clients no longer making bookings…

But, as Salon Owners, what we forget is that this is all in our control. 

Why don’t you like the way your team performs? Why aren’t clients making bookings? 

Really think about it…

Want to know the answer? Find out in this episode where I chat with Wayne Mullins. Wayne will share his insights on what it takes to really own a Salon and its success.

So give it a listen and really capture what he has to say.

The Secret Ingredients to Running A Successful Salon

The vision of running your own Salon is exciting … to begin with.

You get to be the leader and do things your way instead of coming under someone else’s authority. Sounds like the dream, right?

But as you know, the reality of this has its challenges.

It’s all good and well having a vision but actually making it happen takes skill and steps to get there.

Being a salon owner requires a whole new level of expertise… from managing a team, to increasing profit, not to mention being a marketer, salesperson, cleaning lady, counsellor… OMG, it can be overwhelming.

Luckily, there are certain things you can do to not only claim this role with confidence, but to actually see your salon grow at the same time.

That’s why today I’m chatting with beauty salon owner, Sophie Anquetil, to seek her insights on what it takes from you to make your salon successful while juggling ‘all the things’.

Having owned her salon for 12 years and working closely with me through my Salon Mastery Coaching Program, she has learned many valuable tips along the way.

Protect Your Salon When She Says “I’m Leaving”

There are a few questions that I often get asked in my work with Salon Owners…

But without a doubt, one of the most common, and most stressed questions sounds like this:
“My team member is leaving… and they’re opening a Salon down the road! HELP!”

OMG… I get the pain, this is a seriously stressful situation.

And there are actually quite a few problems like this that crop up for Salon Owners… like, i’m sure as you read this you can picture a time when a similar stressful situation has happened to you.

I think the smartest way to deal with these types of fireballs is to future proof your business. Know your rights, legally, and make sure you’re protected where possible, by law, against any future problems.

That’s why, today, I wanted to bring onto this episode Cory Sterling. Through his business Conscious Counsel, Cory provides legal counsel for business owners in the health and wellness space.

Life Hacks to Master Your Inner CEO

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!

These are game changing… so let’s check them out. 

Hangry Hairdressers at Christmas Time?!

The Salon Christmas Cray-Cray… are you feeling it yet?!

Even when I was off the floor, I still felt the stress and the strain of the crazy season. I’m sure you can relate…there are those two or three weeks in the lead up to Christmas where:

Every man and his dog wants to come and have their hair & beauty services done!

… and fair enough to them! But I remember going to my mum’s house for Christmas Day, and I would be having a wee nap on the couch. You know, I was so exhausted by the Christmas craziness. And it was completely anti-social.

It shouldn’t be like that, right?

So I learned the hard way to finally take some care of myself. And in fact, by the time I was not on the floor, I really made sure that I was there to support the girls. And make sure that it wasn’t quite as crazy for them.

So anyway, I wanted to share with you some things to do to make sure that your silly season is not super silly…
