On Your Own But Not Alone as a MY SALON Suite Owner
Many business owners feel like they are going it alone, especially when facing the challenges that come with starting and growing a business.
Take the next step; see how well-supported MY SALON Suite owners are in starting and growing their salon suite business.
You might be surprised to learn that 72 percent of people in their 20’s – a higher percentage than for any other age group – would like to start a business and work for themselves. (Gallup.com/poll/) Without question, there are many perks:
- Having more control over your time – on and off the job
- Working toward your own success instead of the company’s
- Being able to work autonomously – doing your work, your way
- Being able to focus on, design, and influence the client experience
- Taking the limits off your earning potential
If you’re one of the 20, 30, 40, 50, or other-age somethings that shares this desire, this could be an ideal time to make the leap. While there are many perks to owning your own business, there can be pitfalls, too.
It’s easy for a small business owner to isolate themselves; after all, they often work alone. Even as their companies grow, they often remain fairly isolated, bearing all of the pressures that come along with business ownership, tackling challenges, solving problems, weathering ups and downs, strategizing, planning and otherwise doing it all on their own.
With this feeling of isolation comes other consequences, such as the feeling of loneliness. What felt like freedom may start to feel like a prison, if you start a business only to find that you’re in a situation you didn’t anticipate, and don’t know how to change.
But what if it didn’t have to be that way?
One of the great aspects of starting a salon business with MY SALON Suite is the unparalleled support and resources that will be at your fingertips (literally, with our Member-only app!) as a MY SALON Suite owner, and we’re not just talking about worksheets and manuals.
MY SALON Suite business owners become part of a community, supported by real people who have experienced all of these challenges and who are ready to help mentor and support Suite Members with what they have learned. In addition, we bring experts to the table who can answer questions and give advice so that you can get your Salon Suite business off the ground and growing.
Even at the local level, you have the opportunity to be a completely independent business owner without having to go it alone. Working with your fellow Salon Suite members, you can brainstorm solutions to common business owner challenges, pool resources, bounce ideas off one another, share concerns and celebrations, and even work together on cooperative marketing and events. Instead of wondering “who” to partner with and where to find mentors, you can focus on growing your Salon Suite business, knowing that there are real people available to help you along the way. You can also enjoy the satisfaction that comes along with sharing your own expertise and experience, or even help mentor new Suite Owners as they launch their businesses.
Few other business models come with this type of ready-made support, and it’s one of the things we are very proud of. If you choose to start a business with MY SALON Suite, we feel honored and we truly want to help you grow your salon business and make it successful and profitable. Our program is structured so that you can free yourself from earning limitations and it’s supported with the tools that you need to increase your earning potential and grow to the next level.
