New Year, New Challenges: I'm moving salons!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone survived the holidays, and are happily ensconced in some life changes as the days start to get longer.
I am doing some changes myself! A big one: I'm moving to a great rental salon in NE Minneapolis called Salon Stella! They are a Deva Inspired salon as well, and you couldn't find a more perfect spot for me to start my journey into sole proprietorship.
I decided that the time had come for me to take a little more active role in my career. Recent decisions in my personal life have prompted me to reevaluate where I wanted to go with my styling, and part of that is learning more about the business. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to start as a renter, and learn as I go through the ups and downs of what I'm sure is going to be a busy year!
It's possible that I may want to start my own salon in the future, so getting this step in between will be key to me understanding the business from the owner's point of view.
I will gain a new perspective on the whole salon system, and have even more pride in what I do because now I'm in charge!
My last day at the East 42nd Street Salon is this Saturday, January 7th. I will start up at Salon Stella two weeks from then on the 25th.
As sad as I am to leave the salon that has been my home for 2 years, and the amazing stylists and spa professionals there, this is a change that I need to do for myself as a business person and as a stylist. I need to flex my wings and fly a little higher.
Plus, I love a good challenge! :)
I know change is scary- tell me about it!- but I promise that this change will prove good.
Thanks for tuning in, and I hope to see you in the chair!
