5 things a salon owner and hairstylist can be thankful for if you are searching for some inspiration today:
Let’s not beat around the bush here … it’s all about the clients and we have a very unique opportunity to be a positive influence in their perception of themselves and therefore how they present themselves to others. We enable them an avenue of self expression in an external way that may represent a very sacred innermost reality.
2. Industry Support:
You have built a foundation of support around you, so recognize and appreciate your ability to attract like minded people. This may be your staff, your business partner, sustainability partners such a Green Circle Salons, your Distributor and sales reps, and a haircare brand. In my opinion, a brand like Davines transcends the typical business relationship and opens up a very unique dynamic of inspiration, accountability, and support. They are always looking for ways to grow together in a sustainable way and I am really thankful for this unique relationship.
As a business owner you have embarked on the heroes journey that will include successes, failures, and everything perceived as in between. The investment you have on the line gives you the opportunity to have huge gains both materially, emotionally, and spirituality. Business is not fair nor easy but then again nothing worth having in this world is. I invite you to perceive this opportunity for what I believe it to be: Your sacred journey that you have invested your all in to potentially lose everything so that you may gain everything that is truly valuable … those refined qualities that define You. They are personal and unique but may Include; Loyalty, patience, persistence, love, understanding, boundaries, personal power, divinity, and vulnerability.
You are the leader because you can see further then anyone else can and that insight is what the people that follow you have confidence in. Your call to action is to keep climbing up to the mountain lookout of life to experience foresight that will lead to in-sight. You must do this often even though your legs are tired from all the days hard work.
5. The Craft:
You are part of a very special guild of craftspeople that have a unique skill set to create living and moving art that helps define culture. Even more profound is that you are healers that support the physical, metal, and emotional lives of your clients. You are changing lives multiple times everyday. It’s is such a sacred gift to be a hairstylist and I am thankful for that opportunity !!!
