Flourish Beauty Biz 90 Day Journal

Image
We wrote this journal because we know that the Beauty Biz can be CRAZY busy and that the day can easily get away from you.  This is why it is so important to plan for your goals and give thanks for your blessings!

We love starting our Day with Gratitude... This helps to change your perspective and outlook on so many things.  By focusing on what you grateful for you will find yourself; happier, healthier, more optimistic and like-able ;-) 

Journaling forces us to write down our goals, which makes us more likely to achieve them.  Helps to give clarity.  Helps you focus and stay accountable.  It is a safe place to release your fears and struggles.  

We hope Flourish Beauty Biz Journal will give you a place to do all of the above, PLUS focus on key growth indicators in the salon world, while incorporating health and creating a beautiful life.  People that are happy and healthy naturally perform at a higher level and FLOURISH!

- Work on a TV/movie set
- Have your work published in a magazine or online
- Travel to do hair, nai…

No matter how you break it down or whatever business you are in, there are 2 ways to grow your business. Increase the amount of guests you see and/orincrease the amount of money they spend in your biz.
Today lets talk about making the most of the time you have with each guest.
It all starts with a killer consultation.During this time it is your job to uncover the needs of the guest.This opens the doors for you to do your job and consult, educate and recommend products and other services to ensure your guests NEEDS are met.
Think about it, we all want to look our best, including our guests.Not only when they leave the salon, but the next day and the next and the day after that.If you do not educate your guests on the products and services they need to recreate their style at home - You not only are not doing your job, you are missing opportunities.
Remember, Your guests are paying you for your time, service and professional advice. Although, we have the best career ever- we are still prof…
