A little info for you 🧐 I've been #behindthechair 15 years now. I LOVE it. I love having my hands in #hair, talking to my #clients and helping them navigate life with some serious ups and downs. As a #stylist, manager, key holder, independent owner...working in both small business single owner and corporate or franchised #salons.
I've been an educator for Sexy Hair going on 7ish years now; this job fills all the empty holes in my soul ... I mean there weren't many empty holes but there were a few! LOL
This opportunity made me realize how much I love to HELP people, really help them grow their businesses by offering advice and a supportive and sympathetic ear.
I was on the way to teach a class in a salon in Chicagoland, its a Sunday afternoon and I’m listening to an audible book while driving.
Jen Sincero's book, YOU are a BADASS at making money was next up on my book list and I began it on that drive. When I tell you this book was such an eye opener I'm being completely serious. I was so into the information and inspiration hit me like a freight train...a moment of mental clarity.
I need to stop trying to change myself, my life plan, and my career industry choice. Do what you KNOW, do what you LOVE, find a way to make it work for you.
Some of the best feedback I get after I teach a class is that they love that I'll stay after and talk business; share with them tips and tricks that have worked well in salons I've worked in. I've also been given the opportunity to see what works for chain salons in terms of retailing and training their staff. As a member of management I was always looked upon to train employees.
These things, even just typing them, are what make me sing on the inside.
No crazy gimmick, no get rich quick strategy. Just me with my shears and a TON of industry knowledge ready to help #salonowners have a bomb ass staff whom are all successful.
