7 Mistakes Salon Owners Make That Chop Away at Profits, and Great Techniques to Solving Them:

Your Salon or Clinic should always be developing and growing year by year. Month by month or even day by day. BUT if you’re hoping that things will develop and improve ‘when the economy gets better’. Then I’ve got some crucial news for you. You are not running a business… Your business is running you! You are letting the Economy run your business and you are just along for the ride. Why do you let the economy dictate how your business will behave, whether it will prosper or falter, whether it will survive and thrive or eventually fade away and fail?

Is your business running you?

I come across a lot of salon and clinic owners who are in the situation of their business running them! How I explain what they are doing is to liken it to a dog … does the Tail wag the Dog? … Or does the Dog wag its tail? Hmmm, interesting, isn’t it, So are you wagging or being wagged? Are you in control or does it control you?

Most salon and spa owners I get introduced to are stuck in the daily insanity of running around IN their businesses like headless chickens… and then getting home late every night just to face some more bookwork and a restless night’s sleep because they are not 100% sure if the salon will be able to pay its bills this month or whether the team are thinking of leaving and setting up in opposition… Not the dream they subscribed to before taking the plunge into business ownership.

Did you know that a tree is doing either of two things? It’s either growing or dying, there is no in-between… So is your business like a tree? Is it either growing or dying? Are you letting the tail wag you or are you in control and wagging the tail?

Time to Take Control:

The beauty of business is that it’s easy enough to become the grower, the wagger and not the waggee – and you taking control of your business again.
“What most owners seem to struggle with is actually slowing down enough to figure out where they would like their business to go and then taking the time to figure out exactly what they need to do to get there.”

So have you stopped for a few minutes and thought about a strategy for improvement? Do you have a plan for growth? Are you struggling to come up with ideas to improve the situation?
