As we enter the summer months, take advantage of this season and make some changes. The changes can occur in business, lifestyle, on the job, etc. Over the last few months, I've noticed salon closings, people in the cosmetology industry are accepting jobs in other professions, and in some instances, salons are doing better than ever. People tell me things are slow and they are losing clients and they don't know what to do.
My answer is to DIVORCE the way you are thinking. And, DIVORCE the old way you are doing business. Fear and ignorance allows people to stay in situations that are not working on their behalf. Many cosmetologists were doing great at some point in their careers and they got comfortable. When there was a "shift" in the economy, they were NOT prepared, because they did not take continuing education classes to learn something new.
Most are searching for the "GET RICH QUICK" scheme, that does not exist. Nothing happens overnight. Most people who have achieved greatness in their professions have paid their dues. They have worked long hours, accepted work shifts they didn't want, they have taken classes, recruited clients in the heat, rain, and cold climates, attempting to build a business. They have accepted work for FREE or at a reduce rate in exchange for experience. They missed a lot of "family time" due to work. Yet, after all those "seeds" were planted over the years, along came the harvest.
After a period of time, sometimes years, at some point, everything starts to get better and income begin to increase. The increase comes when you DIVORCE bad habits, negative thinking, laziness, lack of motivation, hustle mentality, lack of professionalism, jealousy, bad management, criticism that is not constructive, uncleanliness, lying, making excuses, not being a team player, lack of leadership, "I know everything" mentality, a bad attitude, and a lack of FAITH.
Once you have DIVORCED the traits that have you burdened down like a heavy weight is on your back, you will see changes in your life and in your business. It's hard to work on yourself and accept the negative traits. We all have work to do. Accept the reality and make the changes. Life will get easier and you will be happier!
Create a Better Day!!
