6 Things A vision will Produce For Your Life and Business

Most women business owners open a business with one goal in mind…

TO OPEN.

Often following a traditional path or routine, much like what we’ve been previously exposed to.

Then find themselves just working, hitting some high points along the way, or taking years upon years to reach a point of comfort and fulfillment.

This is often the case because there is no defined VISION.

A vision is a clear picture or perspective of future achievement, outlook, or position.

Vision was that thing that got me over the hump and through life interruptions…that were different from what I had originally planned.

A well-known Proverb says, 

Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he?

Vision becomes part of your personal laws.

Here is my take on that Proverb.

A vision gives you things to map out and plan. A guide. Something to measure choices and decisions by.

Here are a few benefits of having a vision:
#1 Focus

Focus- The center of interest or activity!

When operating a business or any project, group, even a family, if there is a vision,  you have a focal point that helps to make sure you meet your goals needed to carry out the desired results. Without it, you may find yourself all over the place, just trying stuff, choosing prematurely, making quick rash decisions that are a waste of time and can also be costly.

#2 a Vision develops organization.

Organization-an organized body of people with a particular purpose, especially a business, society, association, etc. When you have a vision, you also have a vision for who can help you bring it to past. Be it staff, clients,  the right  Coach / Mentor and the proper relationships that need to be formed to support them.

Boy, does VISION bring organization!  There is nothing like trying to lead or support a  group of people who are scattered and uncertain about where they fit, or how to get the job done. Without organization, a team may have a tendency to do their own thing, which may not always benefit the business.

When there is no vision, connecting with people not in alignment is almost inevitable.

When the leader has a clear vision it leads to organization!

 

VIsion sparks Growth

Growth- the process of increasing in  size, be it emotionally, spiritually, or tangible

One thing most women in business know when they open is that they want to grow. The big question is

  • HOW will you do that?
  • Have you thought of the specific steps you will do to support, assure and measure the steps of growth you want for your company and your life?
  • Not every opportunity or move will bring harmony to both areas of your life and business? This is why it’s so important to get clear on what you truly desire. Don’t make your goals based on what others are doing. So many end up trying to attain goals that are not their own and regret it.
  •  Give yourself permission to rock out in your unique vision for your life and business.

Nothing like working hard, exerting all your time and energy then later finding out that you are nowhere near where you want to be and it doesn’t align with what you truly desire and your unique purpose or calling.

A clear vision grows in a way that’s measurable, offering the opportunity to tweak, shift, or change when needed to assure it stays in alignment with what you truly desire and need!

  • What is your idea for growth?
  • What are you planning to do in your business next?
  • How will it impact or align with your Vision for your life and business?

Vision offers Fulfillment

Fulfillment-satisfaction or happiness as a result of fully developing one’s abilities or character.

When I say obtaining your vision will build character, I really mean that!

The process of achieving a vision develops character and discipline that blesses your entire life. It will require you to personally develop to reach your vision.  A vision is often a lot further out from where you are now and will often cause you to stretch your potential. The result internally is fulfillment! You feel absolutely great when accomplishing purpose-driven goals.

 

A Vision gives you Purpose

Purpose- the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

  • Do you know your why?
  • Do you know why you want to be a successful entrepreneur, why your company exists, what you desire for your life?
  • What is the purpose for your business?

When you get clear on the answer to that question everything in your business and life will shift if you align with it.

Finding clarity on your vision will help to answer this question!

Without it, you rarely gain the inspiration you need to make IT happen.

As a matter of fact, you will not know what your IT is that needs to happen!

A clear vision gives your business a Bigger Purpose!

Vision creates Simplicity 

Simplicity- freedom from complexity, intricacy, or division into parts.

Because a vision causes you to know where you are headed there aren’tt as many distractions. ( at least not ones you allow)

You are connected only to those things, places, people and actions that add to achieving your vision and desired results. This simplifies life.

Trying this, and trying that can lead to frustration and sometimes giving up. Simply because the difficulty of choosing from so many options, or flying by the seat of your pants can leave you scratching your head and feeling overwhelmed. A vision simplifies the options and choices and makes taking action much simpler. A vision brings simplicity!

Most of the topics or results of having a vision I’ve shared are really what people are in pursuit of in life.

Vision is the thing that really helped me GET MY LIFE. I was able to overcome during hard situations, make better choices and keep going when most would have quit. Having a vision and strategically walking it out defines life in the most simplifying way.

Do you have a vision? (For your life and business)

If you answered no, or you aren’t clear, feel free to schedule some complimentary time on my calendar to gain clarity bit.ly/yourclarity 

In the meantime: focus on or find resources that are going to bring you clarity so you can simplify your processes and increase your profits and fulfillment!

You are deciding your future… daily!


Decisions.

We make them all the time.

Many without out consciously thinking about it!

Which is probably one of the biggest mistakes we could possibly make.

Not being aware!

Decisions do decide destiny, and as much as we may or may not be aware, our money story affects how we make everyday life decisions and the numerous decisions we make in our business.
Our money story dictates much of what happens as it relates to our destiny. Your money story is deeply aligned with the story we heard or didn’t hear as children. Sometimes our money story is affected by later events we experience in life that cause us to have STANCE  about money!  
 If we always heard lack in our homes as it relates to money, or there was a desperation around money; there is not enough, money is hard to come by, that’s only for rich people, etc. it can greatly affect how we currently view money today and the decision we make as it relates to money!
It could be the reason you do or don’t move forward on opportunities or refuse to go to certain environments or events because your money story says, “That’s not for you, or there will be no money left.”
 
Most parents or guardians meant absolutely no harm in the fear or money story they were creating around money. They shared what they knew and how they saw life. However, it can and often does create a scarcity mindset around money and opportunities. Even a previous loss of a business or opportunity in your adult life can create a fear around money.
 
If you are making decisions from a place of lack and desperation then you always yield results that equate to that. 
 
I remember going through a hard time in my finances.
New business, new marriage, new baby and a few years later, new financial woes I had not anticipated.
When I think back on those times, I made so many decisions from a place of lack, desperation, and frustration.
  • I wasn’t focused ( properly) on my money, only about chasing it.
  • I was grinding hard… at least I thought, and the more I put action into things the worst it seemed to get.
Turns out
  • I was working hard on the wrong things and making very lack minded decisions!
  • There was a fear of investing in things that would actually allow my business to grow.  I had stopped doing the principal things that create momentum in the abundance flow!
  •  I was too focused on my circumstances and not possibility ( seeing beyond what my natural eyes could see!)
 
Then I made a REAL decision.
I was no longer accepting my situation. I went back to what was transpiring when things were going well, how was I feeling, what was I thinking and doing when things were much better. 
One, I was definitely more focused and measuring my process and progress.
I wasn’t worried about money! I was in a space of belief and creation.
 

 I realized, during my time of lack I  had not properly taken into account my new life and how that would play into my business. Many things had been added to my life without me adjusting and making room!

I needed new systems!
  • I had gotten stuck in the routine of chasing clients and money.
  • Making scarcity decisions in my life and business, not decisions that would actually bring in more.
  • Only really focusing only how I could hold onto the seemingly dwindling finances coming in!
THAT SPACE, that type of decision making… only recreates the same thing.
 
I blamed it on the economy, it was around the time of a supposed recession, that was the buzz and the fear being created all around me, on tv, on the news and just about everyone I spoke to.#whoyoulistentomatters
 
I had a sit down with myself, quickly, not as quick as I should have, but quick enough to turn things around.
 
 
I thought to myself. “What’s the real problem here?”
It was my thinking!
I said, “Hey, there are other salons that are still doing well in the same city, in the same area.
I was making decisions from a place of lack and desperation.. not from a space of abundance, where clients are unlimited, resources are unlimited and everything I need is available to me.
 
I re-checked my salon vision and wrote it down.
That led to another HUGE opportunity, (I’ll share at another time)
Write your VISION DOWN!
 
I began opening my mind to the possibility.
This means my mind was open to new strategies, actually investing in my business for the next level( and not sitting in fear) 
 
 
I  had to realign with the abundance around me.
 
Take a moment, think about how you’ve been making decisions lately?
Have they been from a place of lack and desperation( not enough)
or abundance?
If so, you’ve been making decisions from a space of lack and desperation thinking.
  
This type of thinking always stifles your growth!
 
 What was the last opportunity you were faced with that you turned down because of the cost?
 Learn to look at opportunities from a space of value, not cost.  Instead, think of how much impact and growth it will allow you.
 
I remember the early years of my marriage, my husband would spend sometimes two days cutting the grass. We had a huge yard!  It took two days because he would start on it after work then spend almost all day Saturday or Sunday finishing.
He enjoyed working in the yard, but I felt it would be more “valuable” to hire someone so we could spend that time growing our family and doing things we loved.
  •  Maybe for you, it’s not cutting the grass but maybe hiring help cleaning the home!  There are people who love cleaning house and maybe your time would be spent doing something more valuable to you or your business.
  • Maybe you need help in the salon; an assistant or front desk and you see it only as an expense. But those two positions can free up your time and help push your business forward.
  •  Maybe it was a course you knew would send your business SOARING, but you looked at the cost and not the value.

These are the type of decisions business owners are faced with making all the time.

Knowing how much impact and growth the opportunity will allow you is the VALUE of the opportunity!

Don’t think from a space of
“That won’t work for me. I’ll never be able to afford that”
Or
“That type of setting is not for me, it’s for those type of people”…
Whatever that means 🙂
 You were born for the EXCEPTIONAL things in life!
You were created with abundance and possibility in mind!
 Begin thinking from a space of expecting things to work out as you stretch and move to new levels! Change your Money Story!
Your Decisions Decide your Destiny and your Money Story affects it all!

5 Things that affect your ability to LEVEL UP!

If you’re reading this, the words LEVEL UP are probably not new to you at all.

It is a catch phrase that is common throughout many social media platforms.
Music artists are even developing their songs around the words LEVEL UP!
Leveling up is normally centered around going to the next level.
But how does it happen?
This can be different for different people.

  • Some are birthed in an environment where people are intentionally operating at the highest version of themselves. Always intent on being their best self and it’s just normal.
  • Some just happen to be in the right environment where they saw something or someone they admired that sparked their desire to do things differently.
  • Some embrace their next level because they simply got tired of the results they were getting in their lives and decided they were going to do something different! 
  • Others began the process of next level by their spiritual awareness. Where they truly began to understand their birthright of abundance.

Whatever the case may be, I’m willing to bet all 5 of the things I mention below had a great impact on the ease of obtaining their portion of NEXT LEVEL.

 

Firstly, each month I pick a topic for the month and this months topic is

“Operating at The Highest Version of Yourself”

…and much of leveling up is just that.

 

 

So I thought I’d take a moment to talk about some of the things that affect your ability to level up.

  1. Vision

Now I talk about this often but today maybe it will shed new light. One of the major things that affect your ability to measure up is having a vision. One of the collective trends I’ve noticed as working with hair stylist and salon owners is that many are unclear on specifics of where it is they really want the fullness of their salon career or salon business to head( their vision). There are also salon professionals who don’t have one.
That was me years ago early in my career. I actually just wanted to do a lot of hair and make a lot of money with no clear path of where I actually wanted that to lead me. This was a consistent flow of only doing clients but not necessarily getting to a new level. It wasn’t until I got clear on where I wanted the skill set that I had acquired and the business that I was building to actually take me. Like long-term, 5 years later even 20 years later.

I got a clear vision!
If you’re just doing hair and only wanting to get more clients and do more hair that will be the consistent theme of your time in the industry even when you desire more! Having a vision is going to be one of the major factors of you leveling up. It will guide what you do daily, push you to stretch and grow, and ultimately help you create a salon career and lifestyle you love!

2-Your Perception of Yourself
“How On Earth does how I see myself affect my ability to level up?”
Now, you know I have an example for you.  🙂 One that I really want you to take a moment to process and see if you’ve been doing in your own situation!
If you don’t have the proper perception of yourself you will build a salon career that you don’t love, where you feel cheated, slighted, and unworthy of your next level.
Imagine you’re facing a little lack or uncertainty in your life. During these times you recognize you run more sales in your business, everything is always “going to be on sale”. It’s kind of like you subconsciously say. “If I make it cheap… I can get more butts in seats.”
Which is rarely true.

You ultimately end up feeling

Overworked
Tired
Underpaid
and struggle to get some of those same customers to pay you when there is no longer a sale! (It kinda becomes your BRAND in the marketplace) unless that’s the goal!
You even begin feeling the client can’t afford the true value of your services.
What’s actually happening is you are transferring what YOU FEEL YOU CAN AFFORD!

You’re transferring that onto the customers that you serve.

You’re letting it roll throughout how you build your business.

Subconsciously you’re saying,

“My client can’t afford a $200 service because you can’t see yourself paying that in your current situation. 
The important thing to understand here is not to build your business based on what you can afford in the season! It’s important to have an abundance mindset where you are basing your service prices on the value of the service and not what you feel you can afford at this time. This is a huge reason I teach heavily on your mindset, your spirituality, and your personal development. They are all so important because we build how we feel.
So your perception of yourself and what’s going on in your life is going to be how you build your business. Build your business based on the value you provide to your customers.

You also have to understand just how valuable you and your services are.

Not knowing this will keep you from leveling up.
When you shift how you see yourself, the higher version of yourself will out-speak that lower version of you and see the need to level up… in every area of your salon business and life!
THE HIGHEST VERSION OF YOU IS NEVER CONFUSED!
IT CHOOSES GREATER!

It will always tell you to go and get what you deserve!

  • Take the Higher Road!
  • Spend time affirming yourself!
  • Spend time confirming your vision!

And if you don’t have one, make that priority to get one!

3-Spending the majority of time doing things that are good.. but not great.


Distractions don’t necessarily distract you because they’re easily recognized as bad. Normally distractions are able to do their job because they are seemingly good.
Oftentimes, many salon professionals spend a lot of time investing in things that are good but not things that are great for their personal career. Not things that align fully with where it is they desire to go and who it is they desire to become. Spending time on things that aren’t horrible at all but they aren’t great for your long-term goals can gravely affect you getting to the next level
Good is the enemy of great.
I.E.
You have things on your list of things to do that would fully align you with getting to your next level for your career. But your phone rings.
Three to four times throughout the day. It’s all of your good girlfriends. It’s people you care about having a conversation with. Not about anything overly serious. Just chit-chatting.
But at the given time, because you have specific things that you need to be done by certain times, it’s not the greatest option for you to choose at that moment. But, you do it anyway and spend 2-4 hours in conversation pushing your alignment list to the back burner… yet again.

Or

Maybe you belong to a committee or organization that you’ve been a part of for years. But you’ve grown and evolved and the organization no longer serves you.
It’s a great organization, but it simply doesn’t align anymore with where you are heading!
But… you stay connected, spending hours, and weekends each month with obligations to the committee or club.
Let it go.

Give someone else the space to fulfill.

Pass the torch and consider things that align more fully with where you are heading!
You are not a bad person for growing on to greater! Your desire and the highest version of you would choose to align and implement things necessary for your next level and schedule time for those good conversations later.

Don’t let good be the enemy of great!

 4 Your environment


Your environment has to be conducive to where you want to go! We are creatures of habit and some of the environments we finagle in are simply based on what we’ve always done and where we’ve always gone.
You no longer Vibe with the environment.
You no longer feel comfortable with the conversations in the environment, but still, continue to go.

Choosing can seem hard.

It’s what you’ve always done, with the people you’ve always done it with. Changing it can be uncomfortable! You are afraid of people feeling as though you think you are better than them, what they are going to think. Your destiny will require you to dislodge from environments that no longer serve who you are or who you desire to become.

Your environment is so important.

Things you see, what you hear, and how you feel, all three of those components are huge as it relates to leveling up and are affected by your environment! If the picture you see is always the same

if it doesn’t stretch you

If it doesn’t make your heart desire what’s at the next level… chances are great that you need a change in environment.

I always encourage my clients to intentionally go to environments that remind them of their next level, sit at the table with people who want things similar to you, if not greater.

Your environment affects your ability to level up!
5- Your conversations
Not just the conversations you’re willing to have, but the conversations you’re willing to entertain I’ve seen some of the same people on social media, 1 year complaining( the snooze option is a great thing) about the same type of people in their lives, people that disappoint them, people that use them, people that hurt them. After a while, you wonder why they continue to entertain them!

You definitely get to choose the conversations that you allow. Ultimately what is being poured into you, what is allowed in your ear gate is what will come out.
For me, it was huge when I understood just how important what I was listening to was as it related to my next level.

If we are always having conversations or involvement with people who suck our energy dry, how do you find the energy needed for the next level?

What you continue to listen to and converse about will continue to be your reality! You need conversations that influence you to greater, affirm you, inform you, enlighten you about LEVELING UP!

You will consistently attract what you focus on the most!
There are so many things we may overlook that affect our ability to get to the next level!

I had a conversation where I go a little deeper about this in a video training.

Why Hairstylist and Salon owners struggle and how to stop!

Why hair stylist and salon owners struggle and how to stop.

When Hairstylist and Salon Owners find themselves struggling, it’s often at the beginning of their career or after they’ve been in the industry for quite some time.

 I’ve had an opportunity to work with numerous hair stylists and salon owners and many of them have the same thing going on when their career begins to feel like struggle, regardless of what stage they are in their career. 

And one of the main reasons this happens is because they’re all over the place!

Many are trying to learn so many new things at one time.

And sadly, don’t recognize they are in this stage.

What I see going on in the industry is salon professionals are trying to learn either, every new trend or style that is coming out, or they’re trying to put the cart before the horse and what’s happening is their career becomes a juggle. There is no solid foundation or consistency to build from.

  There’s no flow to what they’re doing.

  

Doing a lot of busy stuff becomes the normalcy, and without awareness, it continues to happen for quite sometimes without profitable results.

Licensed stylist are then left feeling like, “Where is my money going, where is my time going and feeling burned out in that space.

 I want to share the thing that helps to combat this type of struggle.

That thing is Mastery!

 Master Something! 

 I believe in mastering things.

Now, this wasn’t always the case. But even before consulting, in my early years when I was full time behind the chair, I did finally recognize that I wanted to specialize in healthy hair.

Once I learned to market myself that way, to the right people, my clientele soared more smoothly, and I didn’t work nearly as hard!

I had been doing a lot of weaves and really trendy styles, and there is nothing wrong with that. It was great, I got paid. But paid and burned out. I had to have sooo many supplies on hand because I tried to offer everything under my licensing!
 Sound familiar?

You probably have a cabinet, drawer or some type of container with things you rarely use!  But it’ need them because it’s something you offer on your menu!

Or, you could be a stylist that does really great work, but you kind of just mesh into the sea of confusion with all the other stylist!

If you learn to master a few things you grow at a much stronger rate.

If you were to sit down and talk to most successful people, they’ll tell you that they’re getting really really good at a few things, not 20 or thirty different things! The more their income increase they put their efforts into doing FEWER things!

Now, if you follow me on my Live Salon Biz trainings on Facebook, Periscope, or Instagram, you know that I love to look up words and find out extended meanings for them.

So I took the liberty to look up the word MASTERY.

 I was blessed because it mentioned three words I want to share with you that can be pivotal for you in your career if you grasp hold of.

  • One word was control which is what Mastery gives you. You know it’s more difficult to try and do a whole lot of things than it is to simplify your processes and do a few things really well! That offers you a measure of CONTROL

A lot of what it’s going on when you’re trying to do a lot of things is really based on mindset.

Your mind is saying, “Let me try this, let me try that,” and actually end up being all over the place.

So the word control was prominent for me as I read the definition of mastery. Mastery gives you a level of control1

What would more control feel like to you in your hairstylist career?

 What does that look like to you?

 

  • The next word was superiority.(syn. Advantage, lead)

When you begin to develop Mastery in different areas of your salon career you actually put yourself in a place a superiority.

Hard truth:

Average rarely gets noticed

If you want to get really really good at something it never occurs because you’re doing 50 different things. It happens because you are consistently doing a few things over and over and over again. It causes you to perfect it and stand out from the crowd.

Think about it! You probably can name three to four salons in very close proximity to where you service your clients today. So, with everyone holding the same professional license, what’s going to be different about you from the next person?

Have you ever struggled to find out what’s different about you from the average stylist?

The answer is what you master!

You can only do that if there are a few things that you’ve gotten really really good at!

  • The last word that stood out for me when looking up the definition for MASTERY was the word Dominate!

Now, this was really really good to me because I’m a Kingdom Entrepreneur and one of the calls that a kingdom entrepreneur has is to take Dominion! Which is very similar to the word dominate.

Dominate has such a masculine flow to it that doesn’t roll off my tongue easily, so I’ll stick with the word dominion.

I like that better. 

That’s what Mastery allows you to do.

Take dominion (usually associated with territory) (A position for you in the marketplace)

Is this registering to you?

Are you beginning to see what simplifying things can do to create a unique space in the marketplace for your career?

  • It gives you Dominion!
  • It creates a space for you!
  • You’ll become known for those specific things and people will come and do business with you (quicker, sooner, faster,) who need the thing that you’ve become really great at.

 Today’s consumers are looking for people who specialize in the things they find value in and wish to invest their money in!

  • Your customer service
  • Your marketing!
  • Your skill-set on a few things
  • Your Business Practices!

Master Those Things!

 

 

Most stylist make the grave mistake of trying to be everything to everybody and it just doesn’t work.

For instance, imagine someone calling your salon business and wanting you to do this amazing new trendy hair styling skill-set that you don’t know how to do.

Do you tell yourself, “Man, I got to learn this new skill set?”

If you do this every time with each new caller (SN: there may be a branding/marketing issue), or each time you see someone else doing it on social media, you’ll find that you are in this never-ending stage of learning new skill sets. Never mastering them enough to really operate at the highest version of yourself, charge your worth… and really profit.

You’re always at the beginning stages of something instead of stages of mastery.

Chasing Clients instead of Attracting them

This leaves you in a phase of chasing clients instead of attracting them… making the process of getting new customers even harder.

Mastery helps you attract clients with greater ease. You’re clear about what you are great at so your perfect people, who are looking for those services, find you much easier.

Let’s think about this a little deeper. For every new skillset, you are going to learn you now have to learn how to market it. Marketing is a BIG area to focus on mastering.

Much of it is in identifying “your perfect people” for what you offer! It’s how people become aware of your business.

Having a few things to focus on when marketing makes the whole advertising and marketing process more simple!

Once you’ve mastered who your target market is (your perfect people) your marketing messages are speaking to the same people consistently! You’re no longer trying to get everyone to be a butt in your seat! Just the right ones!

I know you’re probably saying, “I am creative!” This seems boring!

Now you don’t have to dull your creativity and only do one hairstyle forever! (Remember we are talking about Mastering a skillset!

But, if you focus on getting really really good at one or two of those during a specific time frame it will begin to bring in the revenue you need in order to invest in adding other things to your list. This will help you  Master growing your salon career or business.

You’ll have

  • control
  • consistency in your daily processes
  • even minimizing the supplies you’re having to keep on hand
  • better understanding on how you Market your business
  • and how quickly your business grows. (COIN$)

 

Hairstylist and salon owners are struggling because they’re trying to be everything to everybody!

 When money is low, “Maybe I’ll add a new service to the menu!

Stylist are attempting to do every new thing that comes up on the scene without mastering the right things.

 I see stylist on social media who do really really great hair, with 10’s of thousands of followers,  but they have to sell their services for cheap. That should not be the case!

I immediately know there are some business building principles they haven’t mastered!

 Regardless of how good you are, if you don’t have anyone to do the services on, it’s of no use.

 Learning the BUSINESS OF HAIR is the thing you need to focus your efforts on mastering!

Mastery will rebrand you,

simplify your processes,

attract your perfect people,

and give you consistency in your revenue!

 

What  do you need to MASTER?

What do you need to simplify in your daily processes?

 

Take a moment to write down 3 things you are going to focus on mastering, make sure that one of them is the Business of HAIR !

Disconnect to Reconnect

How often do you shut it all down, turn off the TV, turn off the routine, put the phones down, turn off all of the external things that stimulate you and dictate your drive… your thinking?

I took this picture a few weeks ago when I was out to eat with a friend of mine and our daughters!

 

 

You have to know my back story about phones and children.

It’s been the hardest thing for me to align and agree with in this technology-based world.

However, I  gave into the convincing my daughter did with her father and grandmother.( who in turned double-teamed me 🙂

So still to my uncomfortableness, she has phone under very limited terms and I am still not a stickler for children with phones at certain ages.

 Anyway, I digress from that because I can make the entire blog post support my thoughts on children and phones! LOL!

So, as we sat down to eat, I noticed everyone had their phone. My first thoughts were, “If everyone is on the phone, how do we connect?”

So I made a suggestion and this is where the phones ended up! On the table!

We went to eat to enjoy each other, to catch up, to converse, to really see about the individuals we were spending time with.

I ran across the picture today and thought that’d be a great blog post to share with you.

How often do we turn it all off and just sit and become aware?

So often we’re in our routine of life and no matter what it is that we desire, even if it’s right in front of us, because of our busyness, it sometimes passes us by.

Regardless of what your desires are for your salon career and life, sometimes the constant thoughts that you have, that can be fear based or small thinking,  override everything our heart’s desire… Without even noticing!

It’s not until we get to the place where we find time consistently to shut everything off and ask ourselves,

“Is this what I desire the rest of my salon career, my business, my relationships, and life to look like? Am I doing things that collectively bring me fulfillment and meet my true heartfelt goals!”

It is only then, when we take time to reflect and ask the RIGHT questions, in our quiet space, that we can think with full clarity!

Is what I’m doing working, am I happy, fulfilled, is my business growing, are my relationships healthy, am I  heading towards creating a lifestyle I truly love,etc.?

The time you take to disconnect from everyone else’s story on social media. the way everyone else is running their business, everyone else’s opinions, and truths, is when you can align fully with your own.

In that space, you can actually decide to connect with what matters the most, TO YOU!

It’s a place of fresh perspective!

Decide clearly how you want it to be! (Your life and business)

This is the place where you begin taking full responsibility for your thoughts.

 After all, thoughts become things!

They dictate much of what happens and transpires in our biz and life!

It’s so easy to be in a routine, where your true goals and desires are mere words you don’t align with, simply because you don’t break the routine, because you don’t take time to disconnect to reconnect.

It’s always during my disconnect times that I get my AHA to re-shift in my business, that I get my aha’s about parenting differently or loving differently or even warnings about the need for new information or a shift in order to continue on with my desired goals!

During my disconnect times, I am able to be present, with my own thoughts, what’s REALLY transpiring in my life and biz, what I want to do, be and have, and what I desire the rest of my salon career and my business to look like.

I shut everything down! 

I shut down all of my responsibilities to answer the questions about what I truly, truly desire… and then I make a commitment ( to myself) to aligning with the directions or actions that will take me there!

 Set out an amount of time daily to this.

Be consistent with it.

You’ll find that the bigger your goals and dreams are the more time you’ll need to spend thinking” and being!

This will allow you to create an even more EXCEPTIONAL life an business without allowing distractions to take you too far off course of your hearts desires!

 Do you take time to disconnect so you can reconnect with what you truly desire?

Action Step/ Challenge:

  •  I challenge you to set a time daily to disconnect.
  •  Over the next 30 days, practice this.
  • Be aware of where you are on a journey, what’s important to you and how you need to continue aligning or possibly re-shift!
  • Take time to be in the moment with everything and everyone you embrace and see how it matches where you truly desire to head!

The things that shited my life !

I’ve had some truly defining moments in my life.
One, in particular, I remember crying profusely, like a baby when I got the revelation of all the money that had passed through my hands as a hairstylist, and I only had about 1 thousand dollars to my name and that was literally from the money I had made the week prior. I paid my bills on time, but the rest of my money was spent shopping, traveling, etc.
I got the revelation through a series of conversations. They were coming back to back.
The first conversation:
How much are you worth?( I was confused because I thought they were speaking of self-worth)- well actually at the root they were.
But, they challenged me to look at the debt I had and subtract it from the money I had saved.
I was in the red.
About 1 month later, what I’d like to call an angel, challenged me with similar questions.. but more detailed.
  • How much money do you have saved
  • How much money do you budget to just blow
  • How much money do you spend shopping
  • How much money do you spend eating out… the list goes on.
When that conversation was done, I was crying like a baby. I really thought the way I was building my life was fine. But you don’t know what you don’t know.
 
The third conversation was a client, about 2 weeks later.
My client encouraged me to open a CD and put money into it monthly. It was a $50 dollar minimum.
At first, I hesitated because my mind said, “I can make fifty dollars in 30 minutes behind the chair,”
But the reality was $50 monthly would be $50 more than what I had saved at the time.
 
So I said. “Why not?”
 
I had already started a strict budget for my second conversation and this just fell in line.
 
Over time I increased my savings to $100 monthly, $200 monthly, $300, $400.. until I was able to pay off debt, open my salon debt free and find a measure of freedom! It’s one of the reason’s I share my budgeting strategies with stylists that I work with now. I know oh too well what making the money, but not doing the right thing with it feels like!
It was a pivotal point in my life.
And it changed the way I looked at everything.
But even with that, there was another shift that needed to occur.
I will share that on next weeks blog post!
These transitional points in my life caused me to study and invest in things that would surely make what was not working… a new found truth.
 How many times have you done something that felt right at the time, only to gain some new information and realize you were not living to your highest good!
I call these transitional moments. In those times, we have 2 choices, we can take a chance to reach higher or stay where we are and settle.
 
 My transitional moments have not been comfortable for the most part, but they have been so rewarding when I embraced them.
 What are some transitional moments that happened to you in your life and business?
 How did you walk through those times?
For me, I know when I am facing a transitional time. I’ll start hearing the same thing over and over, I’ll hit a wall and can’t go forward, or things simply no longer work the way they use to! And sometimes I simply feel a burning desire to do things differently!
 
 I usually take time to truly process where I am and what my desires are for my future!  Afterthought and prayer, I usually know that transition is what I need for next! I’ve learned not to be so afraid during transition, but to embrace it. What often looks like the opposition is often opportunity!
 
I’d love to hear some transitional times in your life or business that turned out amazing for you and how you handle transition.

Owning your time.. smashing your goals!

People aren’t as guilty of wasting their own time as they are of allowing other people to.

 

I took on a fascination with planning after years of avoiding my mom’s advice of writing things down in the ever so trusty planner she bought me, without fail, every year since graduating high school.

I learned that things just flowed better for me if I had it written down.

However, even with writing it down, I had to adjust my life and schedule to find time to do the things on the list!

You know those list you write and still don’t get the items done. 

I soon learned that prioritizing my time was also a huge part of smashing my goals.

 

When I listen to entrepreneurs who struggle to accomplish goals or put things in place that allow them greatness for the future, one of the main things I find is the habit of not knowing what to exchange when using their time wisely. 

EXCHANGE?

Did you know, for every new thing you want to merge into your life or business, there is an exchange that must be made!

Like, you have to move something around or get rid of it all together. (bummer)

And surprisingly enough, entrepreneurs don’t just struggle with what to exchange as it relates to their time, but allowing other people to waste their time is a huge part too!

 

When you are set on creating the lifestyle and business that you love you really have to begin evaluating what you do with your time. Some good opportunities are not always great for your specific destiny.

When you’re focused on having more for your family, providing, being comfortable with your finances, not just hit or miss, you must learn to protect your time.

Decide what conversations and events are time busters and which really impact your business and life in a way that’s actually rewarding!

 Be more deliberate and intentional about the events you agree to.

Is your ideal customer there, does it allow you to make future connections for your business, do you maximize your time while there?

 

Take time to evaluate some of the things that are stealing your time.

Time is the one thing that we can’t get back.

Over and over again, if not careful, the habit of passing the same things over each year to our list becomes routine!

If you really are looking for change, as you move forward and progress from 2017 to 2018 protect your time. 

Here’s  are some things to consider as it relates to time management!

  • Evaluate what you’re doing with your time and how you’re allowing other people to waste it. It’s often a huge overlooked part of the process of figuring out how to find time to implement what’s needed to move forward.

You know, the unexpected phone calls from people who, if honest, the information can wait! 

The people who make their urgency your emergency.

 At the end of the year, you simply wonder, “Where did time go?”

I call those triggers. Things that throw you off of your flow and distract you from being productive.

I  do an exercise in a few of my private coaching courses that help my clients really become aware of those triggers. 

  • Triggers can be people, places, or things we allow to enter our flow and distract us, slow us down, or move us off the path to destiny!

Even people with good intentions can be a trigger. Their timing is just not right for you.

 It’s not always easy having to tell people, “I’ll call you later”, or, “These are my work hours, a more convenient time to talk would be…” Especially if it’s family!

You have to own your time.

 

There are things we allow into our lives that are simply out of synch with destiny plans.

Find clarity and grasp a level of awareness of where you really want to head.

Get flat-footed and centered on the things that are most important in your life… that is really going to help you create the business and the lifestyle that you love.

Valuing your time is going to be one of your best moves!

Time busters are also 

  • Working on the nonproductive task in business,
  • constantly tweaking the website,
  • constantly searching for new information without implementing,
  • binging on social media

So many things we overlook that we can exchange in order to get to next level!

Learn what your time busters are!

 What can you get firm about and make an exchange that will give you time to do the necessary.

 Make a conscious effort to measure what you do with your time over the next week.

Journal it.

 Then look to see where there are things that you can eliminate or shift til later while you work on things needed in your business that will help you smash your goals for 2018!

The sacrifices you make now will offer you the freedom you desire for later!

2018 Goals

There is no doubt about it that the turn of a new calendar year brings about a desire for change for many people!

 I personally plan my entire new calendar year(2018) during the months of August-Oct of the previous year. (2017)

This helps me stay ahead of marketing, course creation and how to serve my salon industry clients and entrepreneurs.

 Of course, some things are tweaked, taken out or added along the way, but it helps me have a strong foundation in order to stay focused and purpose-driven throughout each new year.

 I recently asked those connected to me on social media and my private clients what were three things they would be focusing on for the New Year!

#1 Not Procrastinating was one high on their list! 

Which is a great habit to overcome. It is usually defeated by getting really clear on the benefits that finishing a task will cause in your life. It is also defeated by creating small daily projects to commit to and finish. After all, procrastination is simply a habit of not starting or not finishing. Practicing the habit of finishing on small things will create the habit of completing major goals!

#2 on their list Finding new circles of influence or a great concentric circle, let’s just say TRIBE was high on the list as well.

 Now, this I feel is extremely important.

 They say you are an average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. I share a little about that in this video clip. As unimportant as it may seem, having people who understand where you are heading is important. The energy for entrepreneurialship is a major key to accomplishing goals, mindset, and taking action!

 The third thing high on the list of goals for many entrepreneurials was not surprising… their money!

Seeing as though we just experienced the Christmas holiday season, I wanted to offer a tip that might help you during Holiday times for the upcoming year. You can also use it as a general way to save money that doesn’t have to be allocated to holiday spending.

Tip

Great tip as you move into the New Year.

Do you do a Christmas Club Savings?

  • You can have money automatically drafted from your checking account each week, bi-weekly or monthly starting in Jan… Or if you are disciplined you can deposit a specific amount on the schedule you set.
  • In November they give you check for the amount you deposited into the Christmas club savings throughout the year or re-deposit it into a specific account.
  • I.E.

$20 per week will yield you about $1,000 for your Christmas spending(Holiday food, gifts, travel tickets if needed) at the end of the year

  • The main thing is you don’t have to spend large lump sums at one time for your holiday expenses out of current and normally allocated funds.
  • You could, of course, use this for a general savings plan as well.

I KNOW MOST CREDIT UNIONS OFFER CHRISTMAS SAVINGS CLUBS… but you could ask your bank to set this up with a regular savings account as well.

As we progress into 2018, I’d love to hear what your major goals are for your life and business!

Trail Blazers in Business


Have you heard the term TRAILBLAZER?

Webster’s terms it as

  • Pioneer
  • One that blazes a trail to guide others.

There were several things I jumped out and did in my career, I now teach others to do the same!

  • I was the first salon in my area to have a website in 2003 .. and I built it.
  • I had a policy and procedure manual, handbook, and training manual for my salon when I first opened it in 2003, that wasn’t popular at all in my area. Even today many salons don’t have those systems.
  • My salon stayed on the first search page as the first salon for 4 years in a row because I learned SEO.

Those are a few things I trailblazed in my business in my local area. #trailblazer

But, I soon learned that there were a few things to be mindful of when you are a trailblazer and a visionary that jumps in and takes action.

1- get understanding.

Many people are before their time, doing amazing things in their business, but don’t have a full understanding of what they are doing, how great it is, and how they can truly benefit from the advantage. 

For instance, people who have 10,000, 20,000-100,000 followers on social media, but don’t convert any of them to customers in their business. They know how to influence people, but not how to maximize the opportunity. There are many things they try in their business, but because they don’t measure the effects and results of it, or understand what to do, they may not even know just how effective what they are doing is.. so they stop.

1 thing I learned about trailblazing is having a full understanding of the why and measuring results:

  • I grew and maintained an email list of nearly 1,000 people for my salon(over 500 ACTIVE which is the key component to your list)) and used email marketing strategies as early as 2003. ( for at least 8 years) It wasn’t until I stopped for a season that I realized just how valuable it was. I noticed a difference in sales and some client retention for those clients that weren’t regulars! #measure

Trying things with no strategy,  Ahhh, this is popular for many industry professionals, but not purposeful.

You know, you see someone else doing it and think, “I am going to do something similar,” and you move off your original path👀

You often find much later that you were in an excellent position to truly S.O.A.R.,

if you only knew and understood that what you were doing had major opportunity if you’d had a simple strategy for it and kept going.

2- Know your value_ Often times when it’s new you have no idea just how valuable it is. This is where you under charge, underserve, or only market sparingly. Don’t second guess your value!

I think Trail Blazing is awesome! However, having a full understanding of what you are doing helps to maximize the opportunities. When you maximize opportunities you don’t have to do so many things good, just a few things really great!

How many times have you reflected on a past effort or idea years later, after you simply didn’t do it anymore, and realize you did not take full advantage of it? How great it could be now.

(if only you had known and kept going)

Almost like you missed your window of time because you just didn’t know how valuable that opportunity really was.

I encourage you to move on that idea, even if no one else is, even if it’s not popular.

The world needs individuality at this time. TRAIL BLAZE!

Just be sure to research, study, get the necessary help, and get a full understanding so you can maximize your efforts. KNOW YOUR VALUE!

Here are a  few trailblazers who started with an idea no one else had and moved on it. They are popular in our world today!

  • Jenn Hyman of Rent The Runway
  • Brian Chesky Founded Airbnb :
  • Alex Ljung Founded SoundCloud :

Those same opportunities are available for you.

Be the first,

be unique,

be different.

Be a trailblazer.

Your individuality is what will cause you to stand out in the crowded marketplace….

Success on purpose,

Let’s Go to The Next Level!

I can mindset

I am convinced that we as humans handle our problems based on how we think, our beliefs, and what we have experienced. I recently heard a Ted Talk that made me, once again,  take a look at my parenting skills and what mindset I was exposing my daughter to. It also made me view where I may have operated with a “fixed mindset.” The Ted Talk gave the following research statistics about two mindset types, Growth Mindset and Fixed Mindset listed below.

One major thing I was aware of was with growth mindset abilities can be developed.

Here’s a great picture I  found that I used to check my thinking on a greater level.

Mindset

 

The mindset determines outcomes in a person’s life and as I often say, “How you think matters.”

Here are some comparisons highlighted in the Ted Talk I heard.

Growth Mindset: A growth mindset becomes more active when receiving information on what they could do better.

Fixed Mindset: The brain becomes most active when they receive information about how they perform. Such as a grade or score.

 

Growth Mindset: Focused on learning. They understand it is a way to grow.

Fixed Mindset: They focus more on how they are judged.

 

Growth mindset: Sees effort as what makes us learn or grow.

Fixed Growth: Sees effort as a bad thing that only people with a low capability need.

 

Growth Mindset: Understands that setbacks are an opportunity for growth.

Fixed Mindset: See setbacks as a conclusion that they are incapable so they often protect their ego, lose interest, or withdraw.

As Managers and Leaders

Growth Mindset Managers and Leaders

Are better at negotiation, welcoming feedback and mentoring employees because they believe that people are capable of growing and changing for the better.

Fixed Mindset Managers and Leaders: Don’t welcome feedback as much and don’t mentor workers as much. They simply believe that where people are is all they are capable of being!

My Thoughts:

The mind is pliable, with the ability to be brought to new levels. Challenges should be viewed as something you can

Challenges should be viewed as something you can overcome, with information, action, and understanding. Don’t count yourself out because you feel something is too hard for you.  Maybe the internet or technology rage has been a lot to think about as if relates to your Salon Success is about overcoming challenges and mastering things by continuous effort.

I share this with you because many people don’t feel capable of doing things they’ve never done when in actuality it’s normally because they have never continuously tried it.

That simple!

The continued efforts yield improvement over time.

You are capable!

Take time to overcome your fixed mindset moments throughout your life and change those thoughts to those of a person with a growth mindset.

A person that believes if you continue to try eventually you will receive positive results!

You can do this.

From My Experience to yours,
