A Salon Professional Should...

by Carlos Valenzuela

 

Have enough cash to live six months with no income.
Save more as you advance in years.
 

Know when to push the envelope and when to walk away.
Spot and avoid what’s none of your business.
 

Know how to quit a job with minimal collateral damage.
There is always a best way.

Know how to confront a coworker
Without ruining working relationships
 

Know who can be trusted
Remain authentic & trustworthy—take all secrets to your tomb.
 

Keep learning because the better you are,
The faster you get it done.
 

Assume responsibility for creative risk
Failure is never a loss-- you win or learn.
 

Expect criticism of your work.

Never take it personally. 
 

Shoot for being the very best person
Leaving no time to criticize others.
 

Remain humble—never tout your advances

Let results speak for you
 

Give away your knowledge
This is the reason for your greatness
