A few moths ago I changed the business model at my salon.  It is the best choice I have ever made.  Sure I make less money.  BUT I AM NOT STRESSED OUT.  


I was stressed and sad and worried all the time. 


I worried about having enough money to pay the lease at the salon.  


I worried about every dollar that I spent, was it good for the business?


I checked the numbers every day, sometimes more than once.  


I felt like I was working to give someone else a paycheck.


 And then I hired another stylist.  Oh hell.  I was working for this dream that I didn't even know that I wanted.  You see, I got caught up in some looks good, smells good, social media groups that told me I needed to be a team.  I love being a team so I listened.  Turns out this was not the right business model for me, right now. 


My Intern Turned assistant found a full time gig at a salon closer to home and my right hand man agreed to switch it up.  Without Roman, I would not have the blessing of this beautiful studio and location.  We talked for a few months about logistics and worked out a plan for Roman to become and independent contractor.  He and I are very happy.


We do not fit into a typical salon model, and I am glad for that.  I want to be my own kind of awesome.  I do not want to be a Pinterest salon.  Absolutely not.
