You need to answer this question! It seems too simple, yet it is the most important question for every Salon Owner. “Why did you start your Salon in the first place?” Just stop for a moment & ask yourself and then please write it down!
The faintest ink is stronger than the strongest thought! [And on that note, can I please also suggest that you start a journal* if you haven’t done so yet?] We live in such a busy world – and chances are it doesn’t get any slower.
As a busy Salon Owner it’s easy to:
work too many hours in your Salon
slide into overwhelm
pick up the pieces when “sh*t” hits the fan (pardon my French)
try to appear like you have the lifestyle you always dreamed of
juggle all day & have hardly any energy left at night…
Does this sound like you? Then PLEASE answer this question: “Why did you start your Salon in the first place?”
Once you have the answer – and believe me, it’s not a 1-word-answer – it will be Your Reason Why that keeps you going through times like these!
Here are a few answers that might trigger some memories for you – use them as triggers & find your own personal answer!
Lifestyle, Independence, Financial Freedom, the House on the beach, the Overseas Holidays, Flexibility, more Family-Time, making your own Decisions, more ME-time, creating an Experience YOU would love as a client, being an Idol/Example/Mentor for others, simply helping people look amazing, Personal & Professional Growth…
Keep asking yourself: What’s in it for YOU? What do YOU get out of it? Make your Dreams come true – the clearer you are on this question, the closer it will lead you to making your Dreams Reality!
Enjoy the experience!
* If you haven’t got a journal yet, please start one! Write down all your ideas for your Salon (especially in those busy times, so you can get back to them later). But also voice your frustrations, your fears, your gratitude – use it for growth only!
