Now for a behind the curtain of my business episode. There's a lot happening. I've got a birthday sale you won't want to miss, and I'm spilling the beans on my Q4 playbook. Plus, I'm giving you a sneak peek into the ups and downs of bringing new stylists on board.
Let's get real for a moment. Managing a salon isn't always a walk in the park. From team communication to navigating staffing changes and even dabbling in a side hustle, I'm sharing it all. Whether you're in the beauty biz or just curious, I promise there are some golden nuggets in here for everyone.
To wrap things up, I'm diving deep into the essentials of a Q4 playbook. Setting clear goals, simplifying communication, and trying new things are all on the agenda. If you're looking to end the year strong and set yourself up for success, this episode is packed with tips and strategies straight from my playbook. So, are you ready to level up your beauty business with me?
Ever felt like you're on a rollercoaster in your beauty business? Well, I've been there, and let me tell you, it's been a wild ride! From the highs of connecting with you all in my DMs and my programs to the challenges of navigating the unpredictable world of salon ownership, every moment has been an adventure. And guess what? I've been having an absolute blast! Whether you've just stumbled upon this podcast or have been with me from the start, I want you to know that I cherish our journey together.
Diving into the heart of this episode, I want to give you a pep talk that you probably didn't even know you needed. Remember that big goal you set for your business at the start of the year? Whether it was boosting your salon retail, mastering a new beauty technique, or even opening a new salon, it's time to reflect. Have you reached it? Or maybe you've been sidetracked by other unexpected opportunities. Either way, it's essential to stabilize at each level of your...
You won't believe the whirlwind my salon's been through this past year! If someone had told me 18-24 months ago about the rollercoaster of emotions, challenges, and triumphs I'd face, especially after my little one arrived, I might've thought they were joking. But here we are, and I've got some stories to share. Leading with intention became my mantra, especially when I wasn't always around to see things firsthand.
Being both a salon owner and a hairdresser is a dream come true for me. But, like any dream, it's had its nightmares. Money worries, team shake-ups, and moments of doubt. Yet, I've learned that life's all about being flexible and adaptable.
We've seen team members move on and others hang up their scissors for good. But through it all, having a clear vision for my business has been my guiding light. My biggest takeaway? Make decisions with conviction, set the bar high, and trust in your team without micromanaging.
Thanks for tuning in....

In today's episode, I took a deep dive into what I'm going to be up to this month (September) in the salon.
September sets the foundation for Q4. It's not about completely changing the business for a few months but about seizing the easier conversion opportunities. At Ooh La La we're working on our salon's gift guide, and I'm excited to connect with our clients in some fun ways.
This year has been mind-blowing! We've onboarded numerous new clients, leading to a cascade of growth. It's been incredibly rewarding to not only connect with these new clients but also to deepen our relationship with our existing ones. The influx of referrals and the seamless integration into our online processes has been surreal. It's been an absolute joy sharing our strategies in the visibility masterclass, and I genuinely believe these strategies can work beyond just the beauty industry.
But with growth comes change. There have been unexpected shifts in our salon's team...
Do you ever glance at that empty shelf in your salon and ponder over the possibilities? The 10 Minute Beauty Business Podcast is delving into one of the most debated topics in the beauty biz: retail in salons. Ready to uncover some truth?
In today's beauty landscape, retail sales are so much more than just an additional revenue stream. They could be the bridge between merely maintaining your salon's reputation and elevating it to uncharted heights.
Let's be honest; we've all heard varying tales of success and pitfalls regarding integrating retail into the salon business. But what's the real deal?
There are myths aplenty that have shrouded the potential goldmine that is retail. Think of it this way: every product on your shelf is an endorsement, a testament to what your brand stands for, and most importantly, a solution you're offering your client. It's not just about selling, but about upholding and accentuating your salon's ethos.
This week is something a little different, and something that I really love to add for you. This week we have a moving meditation. This meditation is the perfect way to reset, to get some positive affirmations going.
So please have this episode ready whether you are driving the car, going to the gym, walking the dogs, whatever, this is a moving meditation, so it can keep you company whilst you are doing your day to day.
