    The Salon Lifestyle Effect: “No Saturdays, No Late Nights Say What?!”

    The Salon Lifestyle Effect: “No Saturdays, No Late Nights Say What?!”

    The Hair and Beauty Industry has had an undeniably huge shake up!

    Salons that were once thriving and growing are having to adjust considerably to suit the new industry climate… the ‘lifestyle effect’ is at large and nobody wants to work late nights or Saturdays.



    Your team is more demanding than ever and you’re worried that if you don’t meet their demands, they’ll leave. But then if you do give in, you’ll end up back on the floor 50+ hours a week… and you’ll be left feeling resentful!

    Sure, they can have the lifestyle they want, but does yours have to suffer?! It’s a total double-edged sword!



    This is why I want to introduce to you, my two friends, James Carlisle and Lynden James, owners of Vivo Hair and Skin Clinic.

    If there is anyone who is making it work against all odds…and for the most part completely unscathed, it’s these two.



    With over 90 salons nationwide, they have their finger on the pulse and are implementing the big-rock strategies Salon Owners need to tackle this new ‘norm’ in our industry.

    Even post-pandemic and pre-recession James and Lynden are reaching success, on a mission to reach 100 Salon’s by the end of the year.



    Let’s hear what the boys from Vivo have to say about the industry and team in particular…


    Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

    Discover the latest industry trends

    Learn expert advice around training apprentices and how to get them to stay with your Salon

    How to implement the “Lifestyle Effect” within your Salon without sacrificing your business growth.

    Saying Goodbye to ‘Hustle Culture’ (And Why You Should, Too)

    Saying Goodbye to ‘Hustle Culture’ (And Why You Should, Too)

    It’s time to ditch the old way of working in the Salon…

    And no, I’m not talking about perms and chunky highlights…



    I’m talking about ditching the grind of working LOOOONG tedious hours in the Salon.

    I’m talking about saying goodbye to the 'hustle mindset’ that can creep up when running a business…



    If you are constantly feeling unfulfilled even when you reach success, or like you constantly have to work harder and do more to be successful, then listen up…

    This is something I see all the time with Salon Owners (and have experienced myself!). As creative entrepreneurs, we are high achievers, always wanting something more in our business and our lives.



    But unfortunately, this will get you a one way ticket to burnout. If you’re constantly looking for ‘what’s next’ without taking time out to stop, breathe, and turn around to see what you’ve accomplished, then you’re never going to feel satisfied or fulfilled.

    So it’s time to say bye-bye to hustle culture and HELLO to working smarter (not harder). I want you to move on from always feeling overwhelmed, overworked and stressed, feeling like what you do is never enough. Because I’ll let you in on something…it is!



    That’s why I wanted to bring someone in who has firsthand helped women all over the world overcome burnout, Brooke Taylor.

    In this episode, hear Brooke’s strategies for how to build a healthy relationship with your career, how to overcome CEO-addictions and what it takes to avoid shiny objects when reaching success.



    Keep listening to hear Brooke’s incredible success story and her incredible advice now…


    Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

    Learn how to heal the “success wound” you probably didn’t even know you had.

    Discover how to put an end to a toxic cycle with your career

    Learn how to feel fulfilled within your role, and the strategies you can implement to say goodbye to the hustle culture.

    How to Break Through Self-Doubt as Salon CEO

    How to Break Through Self-Doubt as Salon CEO

    Have you ever had a defining moment in your Salon career where you knew you wanted to achieve more?


    This may look like opening a Salon in a second location? Or taking on an educator or trainer role with a product company…



    Whatever it may be, taking the next step in your journey isn’t always as easy as it sounds, right?

    When presented with a new opportunity, you may feel hesitant about change, alone, and totally out of your depth to take the next step (hello, imposter syndrome!).



    The fear starts to take over, and you start to question yourself, “Am I good enough for this?” “Can I even achieve this?”(I still have this exact conversation with myself all. the. time!).

    Fear is something that can be self-sabotaging for CEOs, and you'd be surprised how often our beliefs limit our potential. In this episode, I want to shift your mindset around fear and entrepreneurship, to show you that it is totally normal to not have your sh*t together at all times, and to give you some strategies to harness this type of fear for good.



    This is why I want to introduce you to the inspiring, Lindsey Schwartz.

    Lindsey is the founder of Powerhouse Women Co - a community built all-around helping kickass business women succeed and go through entrepreneurship together (which is totally up my alley!).



    Lindsey is an inspiration to all female business owners and I know you will love what she has to share about the most common limiting beliefs when it comes to pursuing our big ideas, and how to overcome them.

    Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

    Discover the strategies to overcome self-doubt as the CEO of your business.

    Learn how to say yes to the right things in your Salon career so that you don’t end up overwhelmed and overcommitted.

    Find out if you are “really busy” or just avoiding the next big thing in your career?

    Banish Bad Behaviour & Team Drama in 3 Simple Steps

    Banish Bad Behaviour & Team Drama in 3 Simple Steps

    Have you ever had a BAD APPLE on your Salon team? That one person in your Salon or Spa's team who just can't seem to get it right...

    And it starts to affect the rest of the team.



    This person’s behaviour starts eating away at you, and you find yourself thinking about it all the time. Like in the middle of the night. It’s CONSTANTLY worrying you.

    Chances are - if you have someone in mind right now... they're the bad apple.



    I know how tricky it is when this situation arises. Drama stirs within the team, and any attempt to fix the situation often just makes things worse…

    It starts to feel like it’s out of your control. Can you effectively manage this person’s performance without seeming mean or confrontational? Can you give them another chance without the rest of your team resenting you?



    The answer is YES, you can.

    And I know this to be true… because I have done it! When I had my Salon, I grew my team up to 30 women. It’s only natural for people’s performance to waiver now and again, and for a bad apple to pop its head up.

Lilsmartie ,

Salon Owners Collective

Dear Larissa, it’s rare that I leave a review but I had to take the time to thank you. So much to say and not enough space! I’ll simplify, I’ve been overdosing on many of your podcasts and I’m thoroughly enjoying and learning from them. I previously owned a small salon and got overwhelmed and overworked and sold it. Four years later I’m realizing I want to do it again! I’m scared and excited. I’m trying to learn from my mistakes and be brave. Thank you for all that you do, you are making a difference. I appreciate all your wisdom and your gas as well! Wishing you much success!
