Salon Ownership: Dreams vs Reality

The reality of running a salon: is it what you originally envisioned?

It was always a dream of yours to own a Salon, but now that you have achieved this, the reality is that things aren’t always perfect! Relate?

I know how it can feel. You’re so close to living that ideal life you always dreamt of, 

but everyday dramas just keep cropping up and getting in the way! All of a sudden, the dream feels further and further away.

In this episode, I’m chatting with someone who knows this feeling all too well. Having faced a house fire, brand new babies to juggle, team walkouts, and hiring troubles, Mia De Vries has experienced the reality of owning a Salon, and just how far from the ‘dream’ it can sometimes feel…

After owning her salon for 16 years, Mia then founded an online education business called The Secret Fox.

Listen in now as Mia shares how she led her Salon to success, got her dream life back on track… and most importantly, how you can do the same.
