Putting Yourself Out There to Achieve Salon Success

Being a Salon Owner can feel scary at times!

It can feel like there’s no one there to guide you when things are uncertain…. or even to celebrate you when things go right!

Salon Owners are often afflicted with this feeling of loneliness or anxiety… we feel alone in business and like there’s no one around us who understands!

That’s why I wanted to bring ultra-successful Salon Owner Kate Henderson on my Podcast today, so that we could chat about all things Salon Owner Success.

In this episode, Kate will share her success tips and why it’s important to put yourself out there in order to truly get that feeling of recognition you deserve. 

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. 

How To Create a Sustainable Salon

I’m sure Sustainability is something you’ve heard a lot about in recent years. 

Whether you’re completely in support of this movement, or you aren’t fully ‘in the know’, one thing that’s undeniable is the rise of the sustainability cause and sustainable salons in our industry.

But I know there’s one question that many Salon Owners ask themselves when they hear this:

What’s the cost?

I know it can feel scary to spend more on companies and providers whose sustainable products & values mean more expenses for you or your clients. 

So today, i’m chatting with Sustainable Salons founder Paul Frasca. We’ll talk all things sustainability, supporting local, and looking into the future of not only our industry… but the whole world.

Paul believes that it’s time for our industry to get out of the dark ages and start looking into the future… 

What To Do When Team Members Leave- 3 Step Plan

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…

Defying the Odds: Opening a Salon Via Zoom?!

Did you know: it is possible for a Salon business to excel in the current climate?!

I get it, this may sound crazy to some. Covid-19 has affected so many businesses in this industry in so many ways, most of which have been negative.
