Owning a Salon is a Business Venture not a Creative Venture!
Many times when we start a coaching engagement we hear a very familiar story… I decided to open my own salon because I have so many ideas about how everything should/could be done, and all of my clients loved my work and raved about how amazing I was in creating a look that was uniquely theirs and they would encourage me to branch out and start my own Salon. Then quickly after starting my salon I realized while I really am a very good stylist I don’t know how to make this business a success.
A very common story!
