Work ON the business not IN the business

Salon owners: Stepping out of the salon and working on your business objectives.

 

One of the main subjects I am questioned about the most is working on the business side of things rather than working in the actual salon, and the business side can be rather daunting at times. I really enjoy doing treatments as they are my passion and the main reason I started my business, I love talking with my clients, working alongside my team and most of all I love lashing and making clients feel beautiful.

But, my business would never grow to what it has if I still had my own column. So for my company to expand and my team to perform as successfully as they do it was necessary for me to step away from working in the salon full time.

With all of the background work there is to do such as accounting, salaries, staff appraisals, planning team meetings, advertising & marketing, social media, writing magazine articles, working on my other businesses, judging competitions, staff training, mentoring talks for students and writing policies. Plus an array of other tasks It would be virtually impossible for me to still lash too!

It’s all about a work and life balance and I didn’t have any when I had a column! All of the above tasks were done outside of my salon hours, which meant I was only actually giving it only 20% of my effort and to say I was exhausted after a salon day is an understatement. But nowadays I give the business side my all, 100% of my dedication. I still work around sixty hours plus a week, but I choose to do this.

This gives me time to go to the salon and see the salon from a customer perspective rather than a therapist, which keeps the customer service in the salon very strong.
I conduct regular training sessions with my wonderful team to ensure they are the best they can be. This also gives me the added advantage to help out the therapists on busy days when needed, so I am always flexible to step into my beautician shoes again which I love.

I stepped away from my column nearly three years ago now but I do still work on occasional Saturday’s purely because I want to as I love the salon atmosphere. However, last Saturday was my first week stopping my column again due to other on-going business commitments. Instead I worked on the reception which enabled me to still work in the salon but concentrate on the business side of things. I did get itchy feet though and I just wanted to pick up my tweezers and lash! but I have to keep focused and concentrate on the bigger picture, that being the business side.

If you want to know more about how you can move your column over to your team, start tripling your income and how to start working more efficiently on your business rather than struggling to do treatments and your business objectives then get in touch today for more details on my mentoring services.

What a month for KG

What a crazy month it’s been, first of all we completed our first exhibition at the NEC BeautyUK show. Such a busy exciting weekend, it was so lovely to see so many of our customers and introducing ourselves to so many new customers/distributors and students.

 We offered training at a local salon in Warwick which very quickly became fully booked. Katie and Jess taught Classic Individual Lashes and Russian Volume, which went down a storm with the local lash Tech to Warwick. We loved training everyone and can’t wait to see their exciting future in Eyelash extensions! 
This month our training courses have been super busy, because of this we have introduced an exciting offer ! With every course booked not only do you receive your FREE training kit you also receive access to our online course worth over £340. With all of this knowledge in class and at home there is no reason why you shouldn’t succeed!

 Courses take place at our flagship studio in Bedfordshire and now in Gloucestershire with our fantastic trainer Hayley Mountjoy at The Beauty Spot in Tetbury.

If you have any questions on training, please get in touch.

Katie will also be slowly stepping away from lash treatments over the next couple of months. We feel we have amazing therapists in salon that do a grand job! Katie needs to work more closely on the business side of things with KG Salon, Blow “N” Go and KG Training Academy – As you can imagine this takes up a lot of time, and at the moment doing way to many jobs to keep up.
“I want to make sure my clients are 100% happy with there new therapist and if there is anything they would like to bring to my attention or give feedback I would really appreciate this. I hope my clients trust me enough to be ok with this step forward. Charlotte, my lash therapist has been in top training with me since Summer and is more than amazing at doing lashes. Laura will also be doing lashes and has been for 3 years now.” 
The exciting part to this step of change is there will be new treatments coming out, events and upcoming news over this following year which is very exciting.
Here’s to a great year ahead.
