There are a lot of books out there detailing how we go about starting a small business but truthfully none prepare you for the love affair you are embarking upon. Like any passionate love affair you will want to pull your hair out at times, you will definitely want to break up and walk away and you will never want to leave the embrace. A small business can be a chokehold and a vehicle of freedom, all on the same day! Talk about a roller coaster ride.
Owning a hair salon was the main purpose of my life for so long I sometimes forgot to breathe while waiting for enough money to pay the rent, taxes and payroll. Looking back I can now see that although I didn’t feel like I could breathe the reality was I could, was and still am. I am much better at it now. I breathe all the time, mindfully and with intention. This has helped more than I can ever say. Thank you yoga.
We are looking ahead to our 23 year in business and we have come to a great place, with great people. It has been an amazing journey with awards, accolades and much industry respect but it still boils down to one thing and one thing only, the people we serve. Without the incredible people we have had the honour of styling over our 2 decades in business our victory would be hollow. The lives we have interacted with and affected have left us stronger and happier and better professionals. For this we give you our endless gratitude.
