3 Tips for the New Salon or Spa Professional
First off, congratulations on entering the world of beauty boss-dom, babe! I’m so happy that you’ve decided to pursue this path — it’s crazy + rewarding + one of the best decisions of my life. Which is why today, I wanted to share a few tips I wish would have been shared with me back in the day.
Invest In Yourself
By investing in yourself, you’re betting on your success. I’m not saying to make money you have to spend tons of money, but you do have to water the areas of yourself that could use it. For instance, going to conferences, panels + trainings can be well worth it. And if you want something super affordable? I’ve actually curated meaty workbooks for you that range from free to $18! You can find ‘em, here, if you wish.
Anticipate Your Client’s Needs
This is one tip that has been crucial in my business’ success — it’s given me everything from celebrity clients to salon jobs around the globe. I’m currently working on a huge blog post on this, so let me know if I should dive into anything particular further in the comments!
Create a Business Plan
Creating a business plan isn’t just for bigwigs and people that make $150k+ a year, love! I’ve found that it’s essential to have a well thought out business plan from the get-go so you have a clear vision (and roadmap) in sight. If you haven’t done this yet, I’ve created a cheat sheet you can use or you can Google for inspiration!
