As we approach the end of the week, I wanted to take a moment to connect with you, especially if this week has been a bit of a rollercoaster for your beauty business. If you’ve faced challenges like struggling to fill appointments, dealing with cancellations, no-shows, or juggling team troubles, know that you are not alone.

A Glimpse Behind the Scenes

Amy and I had an exciting week as we traveled to scout a breathtaking location for an upcoming event I’m planning in the New Year (stay tuned for more details – I’m bursting with excitement!). During our journey, we found ourselves reflecting on the fact that this time of year isn’t always the “happiest” for everyone. We’re not Grinches, but as we get older, we become more aware of life’s pressures.

Innocence of the Season

It’s a magical and exciting time for children, and I often find myself yearning for the innocence they hold – far less worry and stress. Can you relate to that feeling?

A Walk Down Memory Lane

You might have caught my recent post where I shared a memory from 15 years ago. It was my first Christmas at the salon, and I was on the brink of throwing in the towel. That week, I took in my first-ever £1,000 for a week’s takings – it felt like a fortune, and it gave me hope and the push I needed to persevere.

From Struggle to Success

Fast forward 15 years, and now I have the privilege of teaching others how to build multiple six-figure beauty businesses. Sometimes, as I sit in my salon, I think, ‘WOW.’ We were on the verge of going under, uncertain if we’d make it another month, let alone a year. And now, we’re a recognized, successful brand that has paved the way for my other ventures.

The Resilience Message

My point is, never give up. Nothing worth keeping comes easy, and Rome certainly wasn’t built in a day. It takes time, dedication, sweat, and tears. A supportive team and loyal clients play a crucial role in your journey.

A Support System

I want you to know that I’m here to support you and lift you up if you ever feel like you’re falling. We’re in this together.

Wishing You Well-Deserved Rest

As you wrap up your working week, I hope you enjoy a well-deserved rest this Christmas. Surround yourself with friends and family, take a moment to reflect, and be proud of everything you’ve achieved.

Speak soon.

P.S. About the event I hinted at – I’m not supposed to spill the beans just yet, but if you’re looking for something to look forward to, message me with “EVENT” and you’ll be among the first to get more details!
