How She Got Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

Being uncomfortable is what makes successful Salon Owners…

You get used to taking risks, trying new things, having those tough conversations with your team (and clients!) and before you know it, those uncomfortable situations begin to feel… comfortable!

So comfortable that even when friends, family and clients are asking “Aren’t you freaking about opening a Salon in the middle of a pandemic”… you don’t even flinch.
