Rank #2: How California's New Law Will Affect Booth Rental Salons & Host Salons
On today’s show, I am going to discuss the new law that was handed down by the California supreme court which threatens to abolish the booth rental model and how the law may also affect salons that host traveling stylists.
I think it’s important that salon owners in every state pay close attention to how this law evolves over time because if whatever the state of California is trying to achieve becomes successful according to their measurements, whatever those measurements are, other states will eventually attempt to adopt the same law.
The new law has essentially stopped hair salons from being able to hire independent contractors (booth renters), and instead, salons are now required to classify their workers as employees based on the "ABC Test."
This is a HUGE change and will change how hair salons and other beauty professionals operate and mange their businesses moving forward.

Rank #4: How COVID19 Exposed The Importance of Choosing And Understanding Your Business Legal Structure
COVID19 has brought to the fore-front the theme of the podcast that I have been hosting for years, and that is the importance of treating your business “like a business” and not like a hobby, regardless of whether you are a full-service salon or a booth renter behind the chair. I’ve always said, If the government treats you like a business, you are a business, and therefore, you should treat yourself like a business.
One of the most important decisions you make when starting your business is the legal structure you choose. When I say legal structure, I am talking about choosing between a Sole Proprietorship, S-Corp, Partnership, C-Corp and also understanding what it means to be an LLC especially a single-member LLC

Rank #7: The COVID19 CARES Act & How it Affects Beauty Industry Professionals
What is the CARES (Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security) Act? The CARES Act is the largest economic stimulus package in the history of the United States. It includes approximately two trillion dollars to help people and businesses impacted by COVID-19. Many beauty professionals are asking “What does this mean for me?”
How does the CARES Act impact the beauty industry? The act includes several provisions that impact citizens of the united states, businesses, and business owners including beauty industry professionals.
Beauty industry professionals consist of salon owners, booth renters, commission stylists (W2 employees), and independent contractors most of which are self-employed and/or independent contractors.
On this podcast, I am only going to focus on four of the provisions that my clients ask about the most

Rank #9: What Business Owners Need To Know About Self-Employment Tax
How is self-employment tax calculated? - Most W2 employees don’t realize that their employer matches the 7.65% withheld from their paychecks. As I mentioned earlier, we are all required to pay 15.3% of our gross income into Medicare and social security. W2 employees only pay half of the 15.3% while their employer pays the other half, for a grand total of 15.3%. For those of us that are self-employed, we do not have an employer to pay half of our Medicare and social security payments, therefore, we are required to pay the entire 15.3% ourselves. Find out how self-employment tax is calculated and everything else you need to know.
