    The Secrets of The Salon Owner Exit Strategy

    The Secrets of The Salon Owner Exit Strategy

    When I started my first brick & mortar business I was only 19 years old.
    I had no real clue what business was but I had a Crystal clear vision of what I wanted and how I wanted to show up in the world.
    I knew for sure I could not conform to employee mentality or be stifled in my creativity.
    As I grew and expanded my businesses to more than 10 businesses over the 36 year Entrepreneurial journey I have learned a ton of stuff and had to unlearn a lot too!
    When I can to the online world in 2008 I thought I needed to follow what all the “gurus” were teaching, not because I did not know business, but because I thought I had to learn a new “way”.
    Well, thousands of dollars ( I mean a lot of thousands) and hours wasted I found myself doing shit that was out of alignment with my personality and energy, I felt so pissed off and drained!
    One day I just stopped everything…
    I sat with my Intuition and felt into my truth….
    It spoke loud and clear to me, so I immediately went back to what I knew to be true in the offline business world and birthed my own methodology which is how I have grown my own successful online consulting practice and helped 100’s of small business owners launch and grow their dream businesses without overwhelm!
    On June 27, 2022 I will be pulling the curtain back on the first steps I took to get Clarity & Confidence to launch my Consulting Practice, I will be sharing the exact steps so you can do the same, and add a new stream of income to your bottom line, without tech, overwhelm or bs!

    The Secrets To Knowing Your Numbers and Running a Successful Salon with Nikki Lee

    The Secrets To Knowing Your Numbers and Running a Successful Salon with Nikki Lee

    The Beauty Biz Educator- Founder/Statements Inc▪️Business Educator/Coach ▪️Founder/Merit & Moxie ▪️Salon Owner ▪️ Speaker

    My name is Nik Trowbridge, and I entered into the Beauty industry at 18 years old after growing up as a tomboy(ironically). After searching for the right salon to make a home for myself (finding that more challenging then I originally anticipated), I “accidentally” opened my first salon 18 years ago.

    Throughout this process, a lot of learning happened. Fortunately, I had brilliant mentors and a high pain tolerance, which served me well in running a salon company.

    So that little salon named Statements the Salon located in Woodbridge, VA has grown to approximately 50 employees grossing around $2.8 million per year. This happened with business systems and an environment that encourages team growth.

    I also have an amazing school named Statements the Academy. We have a time-tested curriculum that transitions students to become fully booked stylists in lightning speed. I’ve been lucky enough to be an educator with a lot of amazing companies like TIGI, Goldwell, AcademyPro, Paul Mitchell Academy guest artist, just to name a few.

    Because of this journey, I began a salon consulting company in order to share my experiences as a stylist and salon owner. The knowledge that I gained has defined me and initiated a burning aspiration of educating in a way that’s convenient, broad, and affordable for everyone. In a light bulb moment, the concept of The Statements Project was born.

    I hope to add to my future bio: Helped members of the Beauty industry to accelerate their careers and grow incredible salon environments!

    how to reinvent yourself in business

    how to reinvent yourself in business

    As a small business owner and entrepreneur, I’ve learned the importance of stress relief, self help, and reducing stress and anxiety through spirituality. The message that I want to share with you today is this:

    Go do something nice for yourself! When you're feeling clouded, when you're feeling heavy, when you're feeling unmotivated, when you're feeling like you're not sure what direction to go, pull back, retract and recalibrate yourself. Go do something nice for yourself. My quick mindset tip of the day is go do something nice for yourself right now, or make time this afternoon, this evening, or tomorrow morning. Carve out a half hour of time to do something that your soul really needs, and disconnect from all the stuff you're doing constantly to be successful.

    Modern life can be very exhausting especially for entrepreneurs and business owners. The frantic, always-on, always-connected aspects can leave you feeling stressed and anxious. In this ever changing world, you may find it difficult to keep up, and as a result you may feel burnt out and unable to go on. You may be looking for ways to calm and relax yourself but nothing seems to work effectively. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that natural problems can be solved with simple natural solutions. In this video, I will share my number one tool to relieve stress and anxiety, which works every time. And the more you feel aligned with this spiritual technique the better it may work for you. This spiritual technique will relax your mind and relive all the stress which can lead to a clearer life purpose, better growth in business and enhanced stress management skills.

    If you enjoyed today’s video about being a salon owner and entrepreneur, and how I’ve learned the importance of stress relief, self help, and reducing stress and anxiety through spirituality, please remember to like, share, subscribe and comment if you have any questions, suggestions or feedback. We hope to see you here again soon!

    How To Use Intuition to Create Success

    How To Use Intuition to Create Success

    As an entrepreneur who has made many of my decisions based on my gut instinct, I disagree that all decisions should be based on data alone.

    For example, at one point in time, I was faced with a major decision that could have either ruined the success of my business and career, or skyrocketed it. I stared at the numbers, the facts, the projections, but the choice ultimately came down to following my intuition.

    That day, I gave up a majority share of one of my companies for free.
    Following your intuition may sound like a fluffy way to make serious business moves, but it's far from that. In order to actually use your intuition productively, you must do some serious work upfront. Here are three ways you can prepare to use the strongest decision-making tool in business.

    . Create clear goals.
    In order to leverage your intuition, you must first know who you are and what you want in life. If you view your instincts as a filter for a yes or no decision, it can be a powerful guiding tool. But when you have no idea what you actually want, there is no radio signal for you to tune into in the first place.
