I have to say that I absolutely love your podcast. When I started in the industry, I’d have to borrow my bosses DVD’s, which were great, but usually high fashion and not applicable to average client. I love that you teach in a very down to earth, humble, and precise way. The way you explain topics make so much sense. Thank you for selflessly sharing your knowledge and striving to make our industry better❤️

Rank #11: You Could Be Making More Money

Podcast cover
Read more
To my commissioned friends. Early in my career I worried so much about my commission percentage. Especially when I ran out of money. Now after owning a salon for 9 years I look at things different. I now understand that 90% of salons close within 10 years because even well run successful salon businesses are working with at best an 11% profit. which is not even 10% of the industry. The beauty of this business is we all have the power to make the paycheck we want. To get 40-45% of what you bring in is incredible if you think about it. I want to challenge you to focus on 3 things for 3 months. #1 build better relationships with your guests for instance listen to things they are saying about their hair and then offer some exciting things for their next visit. Doing this will instantly bring up your Frequency of Visit and Your rebooking percentage. #2 Average Ticket. Grow your average ticket by staying educated. Think about how when a new product comes out and you effortlessly sell it to your customers because it’s new and cool. This works the same with services. If you keep up on the latest trends through education you will easily be offering new services to your guests which will raise your average ticket. #3 change your work experience. Take pride in the way you prepare for each guest. When you’re not with a guest get a mannequin and try something new. Keep busy. There is nothing less motivating to yourself and the people around you then complacency. My point is The average U.S. Stylist brings in 50k in services. That means they take home 25k or less take home. Focus on these 3 things and send me a DM in 3 months I want to hear the changes in your mindset and paycheck. #makeyourownluck #freesaloneducation
