” Let Christmas play and make good cheer, for Christmas comes but once a year!” – Thomas Tusser
I personally want to wish all my friends and colleagues and your families a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
I do hope 2012 was a good year. I put together a little wish list in the hope of making the 2013 year, a year that will offer you a new beginning and a better quality of life for you and your family,one you richly deserve. I do hope we can make the following guidelines a reality.
Bridge the Gap Between Hairdressers and Salon Owners — that we can develop a better dialogue and understanding between staff and management. We need each other more than ever. Better communication between staff and management will help create a positive and happier work environment that will bring prosperity to all.
A Higher Standard of Living — reward all the hard work and effort hairdressers and salon owners exert in trying to earn a higher standard of living. I am committed to help hairdressers and salon owners raise their standard of living and improve the quality of their lives.
Salon Owners — it is my wish that I can help alleviate the stress , anxiety, and worry of salon ownership. I do hope 2013 will be an excellent and profitable year for you and your team.
Busy Salons -– that salons and their team are always busy every day of the week. When we can create a demand for our services, we can consider raising prices. It s my wish that 2013 will be a great year for everyone.
Unity Among Salon Owners — the only people that can demand change are salon owners. It is my hope that we can form a salon owners group and discuss and overcome the challenges of our salons and profession. There is power in numbers. We must create an equal playing field for all salon owners,and address many of the challenges salon owners face daily. Owners helping owners will be our theme.
Respect — urge the product companies to show us the respect and the loyalty we deserve. We deserve to be treated and respected as professionals.
Balance Work with Family — that I can help take the stress, worry, and frustration out of building a profitable business and help both hairdresser and salon owner form a better balance between work and family.
Reform our Educational System — we must reform our educational system to help better prepare our new generation of hairdressers meet job market and consumer demands. If we are to raise our standard of living,we must raise our standards of educational excellence.
Business Minded Salon Owners — help salon owners become astute business men and women and improve profits and renew their passion to succeed.
A Positive and Professional Salon Environment —create a team culture within the salon so it’s a fun and fulfilling to go to work everyday.
Financial Planning — that all hairdressers and salon owners learn more about money management and financial planning and begin starting their own Roth I.R.A or Simplified I.R.A. accounts.
Professionalism Image –- I wish our profession and the consumer view our hairdressers and salon owners in a positive light. Let us start focusing on the impact we have every day on the lives of our customers to not only make our customers look good but make them feel good about themselves. Let us start show casing the top salons to the consumer instead of focusing on the negatives of our profession.
Benefit Package — that salons can improve profits and afford to offer incentives ,rewards , and a benefits package for their staff as a reward for their loyalty and hard work.
I am committed to seek out solutions to the many challenges hairdressers and salon owners face every day. Your voices will be heard. I do hope that 2013 will indeed be a very Prosperous and Happy New Year. Follow me on my business fan page for ongoing information,daily tweets, blogs, and special announcements. Click here.
