I have 3 goals:
- To turn your salon around to earn a profit
- To help you become the best leader you can be
- To keep it real with some humor
I’ve been called a boat rocker, or a “truth sayer”, if people are being nice. Basically I’m a straight shooter, who can help you create the components of your business that will attract your perfect people, and unique functional systems that keep things running smoothly and consistently. I’m an expert at building leaders, and I believe with all my soul that there’s a leader in everyone. Leadership is not a talent, it’s a learned behavior. I’m just your guide, you are the hero.
I built a successful salon in the capitol of chair rental, Los Angeles, growing 37% during the worst economy in 30 years. That was after I lost my home because the government reclassified my booth renters as employees. To save my salon I got serious, implementing systems and strategies that were not what everyone else was doing, but they worked to put butts back in our chairs, grow revenue to 1.5 million, a top 200 salon, and retail sales 38% of gross revenue.
Most people would look at the awards hanging on my walls, my business, my beautiful family, and think I had it going on. A few years ago I left, just walk away from everything I worked 30 years to build. Why? Burnout, no emotional return on a physical investment. I became a certified coach because I don’t want that for you.
MY WHY. When I owned my salon, I got a Ph.D. in “PROBLEM MANAGEMENT”. Owning a salon is not as easy as some would like people to think. I had to learn to be the; CEO, CFO, CMO, COO, and CTO. While doing all those C jobs, work as a hairdresser. Time management became the name of my game, and I understand working all day and having no energy for family and friends.
My 31 years of salon business and technical training is carefully crafted in my educational workshops and private consulting that will; inspire you to create a business that will be rewarding, earn profit, and help prioritize your life. The best part is there is an answer to every budget. My promise is, you will receive my support every step of the way. For those who’ve worked with me know that I am highly committed to your success.
Like I said, I’ve been waiting for you.
