    Firing Clients is ok!

    Firing Clients is ok!

    Firing clients was once taboo and frowned upon but as our industry is collectively elevated and we’re consciously creating sustainable businesses and environments that support our mental health and well-being (instead of chip away at them), releasing clients that aren’t a match to work with us is becoming the norm. Today I’m talking about how to release clients that you dread working with, and how to prevent them from lashing out at you afterwards as well as handling bad reviews. You can find the Best Year Bundle and everything that I currently offer at www.thecurlgirl.com

    🌟20k a month with wigs - Daniel Koye

    🌟20k a month with wigs - Daniel Koye

    Do I have your attention? Good, because this conversation with my friend Daniel Koye is one you won't want to miss if you're looking to learn a 6 figure skill, one that you can do from anywhere (you can run this business contact free without needing to be in a salon setting) and you can also add it to your service menu to serve clients with damaged hair, age related hair loss, help them feel beautiful while battling cancer with chemotherapy, or do any kind of bold or glamorous look for a special occasion.  I asked him some specifics when it came to pricing, suppliers, etc. and you'll hear the breakdown - 20k a month, low end estimate, NET for making 10 wigs. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Daniel has a background in theater, television and film where he learned the secrets of wig making that no one wanted to share. Now, he's spilling all the tea and elevating out industry my making this education accessible for anyone who wants to learn and he has a technique he's named Wighacking - which allows stylists to edit a pre made wig and create a natural hairline that can be done in a tenth of the time (or less) than creating a wig from scratch - and without sacrificing quality or comfort for the client.  Have a listen and you might be surprised and the opportunities that most stylists are sleeping on when it comes to the business of wigs.

    Caption Quickies - Remember, YOU are the boss.

    This quick episode is just an extra shot of "remember that you are in control of your life and business" to add to your morning coffee. I'm reading some of my Instagram captions as reminders that you are worthy and don't need to let anyone take advantage of you. All of my people pleasers out there, take note - YOU CAN'T POUR FROM AN EMPTY CUP - and YOU are in control of how your run your business. 💕💕💕💕

Grateful Suite Stylist

I am SO GRATEFUL for Jennifer Kenny. I recently started turning to her for guidance. I’m a suite owner who desperately needs a helping hand and listening to Jennifer I feel renewed hope, excitement and like I really CAN do this and fulfill my dream of being an independent stylist/owner. She is such a blessing to me. Thank you Jen !

So helpful and inspiring

GIRL!! This podcast is pure gold. I am a salon owner who opened my business in the beginning of the pandemic and let’s just say…it’s been a wild ride. This podcast has helped inspire me to tighten up my systems and has helped enforce the confidence and drive to keep going despite the rocky start. Highly recommend.
