Work With a Coach

The Average Salon Owner Spends 121 days each year putting out fires & spinning wheels instead of growing their business and living a life of Freedom & Profit. (It shouldn't be one or the other)


too much to do

We get it... Lets talk about it!

Owning 'Just Another Salon' is not who are or what you want out of your life. You’ve slogged your self to death to get this far - you know you're made for great things and to make a difference for your clients, your team and for your family.   The hours you're putting in, between the business, your clients and your family leaves you nothing for yourself.  

  • You're working hard!
  • You have one eye on your laptop while you're at home with the family - Overwhelmed with the to-do list.
  • You feel guilty when at work for not spending more time with your loved ones - It isn’t what you got into business for!

Despite all this going on, you want to create a business that's bold and stands for something with out losing your self in the middle of it all.

You can create your own schedule, spend time with your loved ones and have a paycheque that meets your needs, wants and desires.

let me show you how
having it all

You can have it all...

  • You can work the hours you want without having work on your day off!
  • You can earn enough to enjoy life and give your family everything they need.
  • You can have a steady stream of clients to keep your team fully booked.
  • You can enjoy being away from your business, feel completely in control without the guilt!

That's exactly what we did & you can do it too!

Salon coaching

That's exactly how I did it & now help others to do the same

I so loved being creative with my clients & when I realised I could exercise that creativity running my business, I got addicted! So I worked hard for my clients and my team but often, in the early day's I was the busiest stylist and while the others sat in the back room… and I brought in the most money while taking the least home…  

  • I was afraid to let my clients down.
  • I was afraid to not be seen to work hard as a leader for my team.
  • I was afraid to make more money than those that worked for me.
  • I didn’t know what I should be doing to grow my business and how to help my team grow…

My business coach offered to ‘break my arms’ so I could create time to grow my business. It was good advice. When I started to work ON my business and not IN it I got focused. I started to make more money. I evolved from tired and overwhelmed to freedom of time and thought.

Owning and running a salon is hard work...

I built a business with intention & designed my life that gave me freedom, served my clients, grew my team and left plenty in the tank to be there for my family.

I could have it all - if I really wanted it.

 I had realised my dream, I was being a creative entrepreneur and no longer just working hour upon hour to make ends meet.

Freedom & Profit Programs:

Step #1: Start Your Journey

You’re a salon owner who feels exhausted with all things that are on your to-do list. You’re juggling clients, paying the bills late into the night not to mention the bombardments of your team the minute you walk in the door.  You're working hard! You have one eye on your laptop while you're at home with the family - Overwhelmed with the to-do list. And you feel guilty when at work for not spending more time with your loved ones - It isn’t what you got into business for!

The Freedom & Profit Program is right for you if want to free yourself from spinning plates, create some space in your life and gain back your sanity.

The goal is to help you get freedom, a little time out from only being behind the chair and working ON your business instead of IN it - attract more clients and transform your business into a well-oiled machine, build your team,so you can spend time with friends, family or do yoga (if that's your thang)!

Step #2: Grow Your Business

You’re a salon owner who wants to grow & take their business to the Next Level. You’ve successfully moved your self out from being ‘behind the chair’ for all-of-the-hours and have some time to invest in building and fast-tracking the success of your salon.

You’re either Overwhelmed with the to-do list and just don’t know where to start first OR you just don’t know what to put ON your to-do list to really kick-start your business growth.

The Freedom & Profit Next Level Mastermind is right for you if need clarity on your strategy to create a kick arse plan and implement it with ease in a no-stress way. Making sure you don’t delve into Overwhelm and keep some time and sanity for yourself and the other people and things in your life.

The goal is to reach your sales & profit success goals while maintaining a sense of freedom in your business to live life and enjoy your success.

Step #3: Become An Industry Leader

You have worked hard for the success you have and you feel you have something more to give. You are ready to leverage everything you have learned and share it with the world.

You’re less tied into the operational side of your business now or ready to sell-up and move into something new. Maybe you’ve already done that and this time you want and are ready to create a ‘leveraged’ life. One with more balance, more freedom and more profit… While giving back to the industry you love so much!
