Work On Your Salon Business, Not In Your Business

In the beginning, Toby and I did every single task in our company. In fact those first years are a blur. We worked 7 day weeks and 12-14 hour days. Our life was all about our passion and our desire to express our potential and share with the world a new system, a new body of knowledge. We were pushing ourselves to the limit and we were on fire. 

If you want to run a successful salon business. you have to know how to play to your strengths. You may think that you can get things done better and more efficiently than anyone else. That might even be true, but all the time you’re spending doing jobs that other people could be doing is time that you are not running your business. When you get bogged down in simple details that your team could be working on, you are not being an effective leader.

As the leader of your business, you are responsible for spotting problems and delegating solutions. You are responsible for setting goals and thinking about the future. Every minute that you spend working on tasks that can be delegated is a minute that you’re not planning, strategizing and building the best business possible.
