Make This 1 Change to Be a Better Boss

It’s almost 2022, and we can all admit: times have changed.  Anyone who’s been in this industry for more than a couple of years will have seen the change happening.  The shift is actually pretty clear… and it’s all about our employees. With more and more Gen Y and Z coming into Salon and Spa…

The Ultimate Secret to Growing a Team That Won’t Leave

There’s a team crisis! And I hear so many Salon Owners saying how things have changed in recent years, especially when it comes to this issue.

Now don’t get me wrong, things are forever changing in our industry…

But did you know: even when I owned my Salon years ago, people were saying the same thing. 

The newsflash is: there has ALWAYS been a team crisis!  So it’s time we stepped up and tackled it, once and for all.

Adjust Your Money Mindset to Grow Your Salon

When you were growing up, did you ever hear the phrases:

“Money is the root of all evil” 

“Money won’t buy you happiness”

Well, did you know- that despite the good intent behind these phrases- these could have actually caused you more harm (in the long run) than you realise?

As a Salon Owner, who I’ll assume wishes to be as successful as possible,

one of the biggest things you’ll want to learn about is your Money mindset. 

Whether your goal is to earn a million dollars a year,  a hundred thousand dollars a year, or 50 thousand dollars… your pre-existing, intrinsically programmed money mindset could actually be stopping you from reaching your goal. 

A negative or limiting mindset around money may not even be something you realise you have. 

For a lot of us, it started when we were children… think of the phrase ‘filthy rich’ for example. It’s something that has been brewing over the years- and you may not even know it. 

That’s why today, I’ve invited Mindset Coach Rhi Thistlethwaite to join me on the Podcast.

Rhi is going to share how you can adjust your money mindset, and why doing so will be so fundamental to your Salon’s success.

Stress-Free Guide to Managing Clients after Lockdown Re-Opening

I have a question for you:

If you have recently reopened, after being closed because of covid…

Are you feeling just a tad overwhelmed?

This is something I’ve been noticing a LOT lately with salon owners i’ve been chatting to…

I get it. Post-covid, reopening cray-cray is REAL. Working long hours, trying to communicate effectively with both your team and clients…

Now,  don’t get me wrong, we should of course feel super lucky that we can re-open in the first place. And we do.

But that doesn’t mean it’s any less overwhelming!

I’m sure by now you have 100s of clients queuing for the earliest available appointment as you return to the salon.

Trying to chop and change the appointment book, squeeze everyone in, prioritise, 

reschedule, reorganise… it’s enough to drive any salon owner to the edge of insanity!

But did you know: there are three ways you can reintegrate your clients to keep your own sanity (and that of your team)… and not lose or disappoint any clients along the way.

In this episode, I’ll talk you through the three ways to choose from, to manage your appointment book and the peak you are having right now… plus to avoid the troughs that may creep up after the crazy-busy period is over.
