Salon Owner’s Guide To Success: What Is Your “WHY”?


salon owner success tips - guide to success for hair salonsAre You Ready To Design YOUR Life On Your Own Terms?

This Salon Owner’s Guide to Success will help you tap into your inner strengths. There is an excellent saying…

“The bigger the WHY, the easier the HOW.”

The more you know your reason for what you want – the deep, behind the scene, in your gut REASON – the easier it will be for you to accomplish it.

Here are 4 questions to help you tap into WHY you want to succeed in the beauty industry:

1) Why did you become a beauty professional?

2) How does being a hairstylist, barber, nail tech, or esthetician empower you to do what you want to do most in your life?

3) What difference will succeeding at this make to you?

4) What difference will it make to others – your family and friends, your clients, the community, the world? Yes, the world. We all play a role in how the world turns.

Write down your answers to these questions which reveal your WHY. This is what drives you forward in your career.

Now capture this WHY in 3 words. To do that, look at what you wrote down. Circle the most important words, like serve, beauty, provide, create, enjoy… what words best describe your WHY?

Eat, sleep and breathe your WHY

Next Step in this Salon Owner’s Guide to Success: Each time you start or finish an action in your workday, remember your 3 words for WHY. When you:

  • Book an appointment
  • Greet a client
  • Provide the beauty service
  • Admire the final look with your client
  • Thank your client
  • Start and plan your day in the morning
  • Review what you accomplished at the end of the day
