S3 Ep18: why I used to hate my salon

blog podcast Jan 10, 2022

SHOWNOTES

In my 15 plus years running my salon I have been through so much. There have been highs and lows. It's not always been perfect, far from it. Did you know that I used to hate my salon? Literally would want to cry when I was there. In this episode I want to share that story. Sometimes what people see on the outside isn't always what is going on, it's important to acknowledge that. So here's a little story time for you guys, the "I used to hate my salon story". But like all of the best stories this one does have a happy ending.

 

Many of you are in this exact spot right now and this is why it’s important for me to share my journey, for you to understand how I have reached this place in my life, I want you to hear from me how each and every time I'm now in my salon I'm super grateful, and don't actually want to leave.

S3 Ep17: girl power

blog podcast Jan 03, 2022

SHOWNOTES

New year episode so I wanted to talk to you about mindset and also about the importance of routine.

 

As we come through our little holiday season, whether you took time off or didn't really have much down time, our lives are usually a little different and a little chaotic at this time of year, and our normal routine can fall away slightly (or completely), which can leave us in a bit of a head spin or feeling a little off. In this episode I speak about things that you can do right now to get yourself back on track and try to help with the brain mist setting in.

 

Also, in today's episode I am bringing GIRL POWER back into our conversations, I want us to start being curious about how we see others in our industry and even in our salon. Do we look at them with the green eyed monster slipping in or do we look at them say "dang girl/guy you are smashing it", I hope it the latter, but if it isn't what can you do today to embrace this sense of community and sense of...

S3 Ep15: biz planning 101

blog podcast Dec 20, 2021

SHOWNOTES

Planning is one of my favorite topics to speak about here on the podcast, but also its one of my fav subjects I teach within my Mastermind and also in my brand new Salon Quarterly (which kicks off in January).

 

We are all super busy in our professional and personal lives, but as a result of proper business planning we can all have a safety net around us, allowing us to plan for the normal days and those not so normal days, and after being part of our amazing industry over the last nearly two years, I think you will agree that planning for those “not so normal” days is a must to give us longevity in our businesses. 

 

In this episode, I speak about the importance of business planning, but more importantly, I think, what can be achieved if you spend the time and understand what your business needs in terms of planning. This is not pie in the sky stuff people, this is real, don't miss it!

Yikes! We are a matter of weeks away from the end of 2021. Planning is key for a successful 2022, so here are my very simply and straight forward questions that I want you to ask yourself about your beauty biz.

S3 Ep 10: story time- don't let them dim your light

blog podcast Nov 15, 2021

SHOWNOTES

I love retail. I've been talking about it nonstop here on the podcast for some time. I've been thinking about retail and thinking about profitability and we're at the right time of the year to be thinking about it. BUT there are people out there that will say that selling retail in your salon will not make you profitable! From my experience, this isn't the case. This episode is all about making your own decisions for your business, mapping out plans to achieve your dreams. In particular the importance of looking at all the options that are out there to make your business a huge success. Remember, always be totally open minded when it comes to your biz, don't be closed off to options and avenues of opportunity that are out there. Don't allow anyone to dim your light, always SHINE BRIGHT

 

In this episode Lexi's cover:

  1. Setting your own goals for your business

  2. Don't allow others failures to cloud your judgement
