A New Beginning, a Time for Change
In today’s tough and changing business climate, salon owners have no voice and time addressing the lack of quality education and resources affecting their salons. ((90% of our education is focused on the needs of special interest groups.)
It’s time to demand educational reform.If we are to raise prices and raise our standard of living, we must raise the standard of educational excellence.
It’s no secret that the beauty industry needs educational reform. Sadly many salons will fail because far too many salon owners are in denial and will not seek out education especially in the business aspect of salon ownership. It’s easier to stay in their comfort zone because change require more work and new ideas.
In spite of these challenges, I see a coming boom for open minded salon owners who are well informed and determined to make their dreams a reality. Tough times always separate winners from losers but tough times always present fantastic opportunities for the well informed. As more and more salons struggle or fail, salon owners who develop powerful business management skills and develop high end salon/spas will be in high demand and continue to grow.
Today’s consumers are crying out for upscale hairdressers and salon owners who are truly committed to meeting and exceeding their client’s expectations. Committed professionals who are determined to make their business successful, and adapt to the needs of the consumer, will be in high demand. I see tremendous windows of opportunity for those who are committed and know how to create a demand for their services and their business.
Although many of our colleagues are struggling, I urge you to keep a positive attitude, develop strong business management skills, persevere and develop a competitive spirit. As leaders of your team, we as salon owners must individually become better business men and women and do what’s necessary to take our business to a higher level.
