My content calendar for my blog post had me scheduled to post about something else today… other than what I’m about to share!
But, I shifted a little because I wanted to really talk to you guys about measuring and results. They matter!
I see so many times where salon professionals take classes and courses or try new things in their salon business or career and finish feeling the same way they felt when they started… as it relates to their revenue or their business moving forward.
Here are a few reasons that happens:
Hairstylist and Salon Owners take courses that don’t align them with where they are “right now” in order to move forward. In other words, they take courses prematurely without deciding how thing will align with where they ultimately want to head in the future! Because it’s not aligned implementing it and seeing results becomes difficult or draining.
They take skill-set courses for styles that they don’t even enjoy doing or their customers have no desire or any need for.
What prompted me to switch and talk about this subject was when I checked my inbox from a client who took my Brand Build, Profit- Master Session for Salon Owners who shared with me her recent results. We did a session on a Client Attraction Systems that I taught about a week ago.
She shared with me that the first day that she applied the strategy within the Client Attraction System to her salon business, she gained three new customers, then shared with me this evening that she gained two customers from another strategy she just implemented today!
It made me think of how important it is for hairstylist and Salon Owners to look for results. Now every strategy won’t happen this fast, but they do happen faster when you take courses or apply strategies that align with where you are in your growth stage of your career or your unique level. Knowing where you are increases the chances of knowing what to focus on, when, and see results sooner!
It’s important that you measure.. and it’s even more important that you do the work!
Measuring helps to see where to place the most efforts to see the greatest result(profit)
Often times you will find that 80 % of your results really come from 20% of the work you do. This concept is called the Pareto principle Coined through a principle shared by Vilfredo Pareto.
Also known as, THE LAW OF VITAL FEW.
There’s no way that my salon owner client would have gotten those results, even if I taught the most amazing strategies if she had not done the work!
Which is something I’ve noticed many salon industry professionals struggle with. Clarity will definitely change this!
Many Salon owners and hairstylists don’t know where to apply their time and energy because they don’t measure when applying strategies.
I teach my clients to
Have a vision for what they are doing
Always measure the results
And do the work!
So, I share this blog post with you to encourage you to do the same thing when you’re going to take classes and courses or apply new strategies in your business- career.
Have an open mind about receiving the information, be sure t you av a futrue business but still getting information to imporve the level you are on now!
Things manifest when you do know the right strategies, and do the work!
