As a salon owner looking to take your salon business to the next level, you must become a Strategic Salon Owner. To become a Strategic Salon Owner, you will need to take along look in the mirror. The second step is that you need to get from behind the chair and you need to become a CEO.
Your results are directly related to how you execute. Everybody can come up with a great idea or plan, but it is how we execute the idea or plan that sets us apart. Behind all our behaviors is a mindset. Your mindset must be a CEO and not a hair dresser.
But what does this look like?
WHY DID YOU GO INTO BUSINESS?
Most of you became a Salon Owners NOT because we were great entrepreneurs, but because you were a great stylist with a large clientele and wanted to make more money. You were STYLIST, and stylist think and work like employees, not entrepreneurs. To grow as an entrepreneur, we must shift our mindset from that of an employee or worker to that of a CEO. This is crucial!
Many Salon owners are former stylist now masquerading as entrepreneurs.
To become a Strategic Salon Business Owner, you MUST shift your mindset. You must put those scissors down and begin to think and act more like a CEO instead of a stylist.
But how do you get from behind the chair?
THE MINDSET SHIFT OF A Salon Owner
You must first acknowledge your stylist bias, your addition of being behind the chair when times get tough and your uneasiness to delegate. You must think of the “big picture” and create the mindset of a Salon Owner. As a Salon Owner, you must begin to make it a priority to spend more time working ON your business instead of always just working IN your business.
