Do you track your numbers??
I listened to a podcast this week and was surprised by the amount of stylist that do not pay attention to their numbers.  I know numbers do not always come easy to us "Creative" peeps but it is so important to know where you are in order to Flourish! 
There are two ways to grow your biz.  You can do more clients or have the clients you have, spend more.  I recommend tracking these numbers weekly at a minimum.  Keeping score will help keep you on track.  
Ways to grow your client count are referrals, retention and pre-booking.  Ways to increase your average ticket are retail sales, add- ons and price increase.

You've received your Flourish journal in the mail, but where do you start!? First...get your favorite pens (we LOVE office supplies!). Now that you have something to write with you simply begin on page 5 and take the personal audit. This will give you an idea of where you are and where you want to be. Answering these questions may surprise you on how much you can learn about yourself!

Now for the REALLY fun part! Goal setting! You will set 90 day personal and professional goals. I love goal setting and I think writing them down helps tremendously in making them happen! Remember to be realistic. Think about what you can do in the next 90 days to reach a longer term goal like one year or five years from now! 
After your goals are set the journal will guide you day to day in following up with your plan. Daily goal setting, numbers tracking, current inspirations and so much more will go into your journal. Using the Flourish journal everyday will keep you on track to reaching long term…
