Being the Boss

C. Jeanine | March 27, 2014 | 2:39 PM

So you want to own a salon? We’ve found that the majority of students who enter into cosmetology school want to be salon owners. For two years, the Persona Market team of motivational speakers traveled to hundreds of schools across the US. Through Industry In:Site workmag (workbook/magazine) and motivational program for beauty students, we discussed career options with thousands of future professionals. During each session we asked students to share their career goals, and salon ownership was always the number one answer!

Being the Boss

The spirit of entrepreneurship runs deep within the veins of many beauty industry students and professionals. I’m also familiar with that nudge, urge, feeling, dream, heartbeat, itch, drive, ambition, and need to be a business owner. It is a paradigm that many share.

Owning a business in this industry is not exclusive to salons.There are many entrepreneurial avenues that one can take. Being the boss takes careful planning, education, hard work, determination, money, and nerve. So roll up your smock sleeves and get moving!
