Becoming a mentor ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was one of the hardest life projects I’ve ever taken on
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hired and payed a mentor quite a bit of money for the last three years to help me become better at my business and to help the next generation of stylists ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Guess what? After three years and a lot of confusion ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I realize I have what it takes to look inside myself and turn my business into what I want
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The culture that I want
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To trust myself and my decisions on how to raise up the next generation of stylists
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I actually payed someone to tell me “whatever you give your assistant is more than what they had”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was awful advice and it makes me sad to think it might be happening to other salons
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time, love, and structure is what we all need and crave ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have new structures and growth outline at the salon
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Monday we are investing in a online training template for on demand education, training, and communication for our members of staff
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This feels so right and it’s about time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t settle for a mentor, follow your gut when it tells you something is wrong, find one that inspires you and makes your heart fly everyday.
