    Alison Alhamed On The Life-Changing Power Of Community

    Alison Alhamed On The Life-Changing Power Of Community

    [179] Suppose life longevity can be rooted in our level of connection to others. Would it be such a great leap to think that career longevity might have its roots in connection too? What if the story we made ourselves about successful people and success too often failed us; made us doubt our worth, skills, knowledge, experiences? What if support from like-minded people and professionals was at times all we needed to keep going?
    Featuring Alison Alhamed, Vice President of Social Media & Community at R+Co, this week's episode takes a look into the meaning of "community," and discusses how brand-engineered ones can positively impact businesses, careers and lives altogether.

    A Trip Down Memory Lane: Sarah Doyle On Two Decades Of Phorest Features

    [177] This week's conversation is more like a story, a trip down memory lane, as the title suggests. On the show, we welcome Sarah Doyle, owner of Templeogue Beauty Clinic (@templeoguebeauty) in Dublin — one of Phorest Salon Software's first clients, going back 17 years ago. We discuss her journey with Phorest, what it was like back in the days, the features she's adopted over time, and how from listening to clients, she's gained insights into what they look for in a salon; what's important to them.Links:Visit Templeogue Beauty Clinic's website: https://templeoguebeautyclinic.ie/index.htmlClick here to subscribe to the weekly Phorest FM email newsletter: http://bit.ly/2T2gUj1This episode was edited and mixed by Audio Z: Great music makes great moments.

    Derek Anthony On Growing A Seven-Figure Business Using Mobile Technology

    Derek Anthony On Growing A Seven-Figure Business Using Mobile Technology

    [176] Reaching the $1+ million in revenue mark in business doesn't mean everything is smooth sailing or running at its peak performance; growing pains are still very much part of the process. And while they can be challenging in the moment, overcoming them can create competitive advantage opportunities.
    A little over a year ago, NYC-based salon D Anthony (@d_anthonyhair) underwent a culture reset led by entrepreneur, salon owner and master stylist Derek Anthony (@derek__anthony_), for which the central theme was modernization.
    Featuring the man himself, this week's episode discusses what rethinking the D Anthony brand and its operations both required, as well as how communication and mobile technology usage — among other things — were vital pieces to the salon's next stage of business growth.

    James Davis On Leading Through Change & Becoming A Community Linchpin

    James Davis On Leading Through Change & Becoming A Community Linchpin

    [175] When the coronavirus pandemic hit earlier this year, James Davis went back to digging deep, working 16-hour days, and thinking outside the box to figure out what he could do to keep his various business operations alive and lead positively through change and uncertainty.
    Enabling his salon, Clay, to financially evolve while supporting the team with a new work platform as they returned, his 'thinking outside the box' mindset also led to a village togetherness featured in national newspapers and magazines. Inspired by the "Pay It Forward" mentality and determined to give back to the very people who had contributed to his entrepreneurial success over the years, James Davis pulled together volunteers from all fields and launched Oxshott Delivery. 
    In this episode, hear Phorest's CEO Ronan Perceval and entrepreneur James Davis discuss recent projects, what changes both lockdown and reopening have brought to his salon, and how leading positively through change positioned him and his local businesses as community linchpins.
