In just six weeks, everything can change—for you and your clients. They may not have the same concerns or even be the same people they were during their last visit. And chances are, you’ve undergone a change, too. Are you ready to adapt to whatever life brings?

Speed dating to find a life-long love was paradoxical enough, but now the youngest generation thinks e-mail isn’t fast enough. What gets lost in the velocity is the true connection, which is why slow cooking is reigniting a love relationship with healthy meals, slow breathing calms us and the Slow Movement encourages us to downshift.

When his entire team, with the exception of two people, walked out of the RED Salon in Birmingham, Michigan, Scott Fortner did not crumble, fade into the woodwork or bail. Instead, he found the strength and courage to recapture his confidence, build a new team, see his business thrive and invest in the future.

For the past week I’ve been with my family in Atlanta: two nieces and their husbands along with their children aged five, four and one.
Having never birthed a child, I have zero “mothering” genes, and since I live in an adult business world, I rarely have the opportunity to be in the pure presence of a child. It was bound to be an awakening experience—especially since it lasted for nine days! That’s how long we were together, splitting time between their two homes and navigating their different lifestyles, schedules and parenting rules.

Every fall, back-to-elementary-school meant having to stand and deliver: “What I did on my summer vacation.” Well, that’s what I decided to do in this week’s blog!

If it’s Tuesday it must be over ... Beauty Week in Las Vegas at Cosmoprof/PBA/NCA, that is. Well
it is Tuesday, and I’m on a plane back home, along with legends Sam
Brocato and David Raccuglia, as well as a team of professional salon
distributors. Their presence reminds me that colleagues are one family,
relatives are another, and there is commonality in what you do for
both. Like being prepared for what they give and take, making time for
them, learning from them and appreciating them. Nothing brought this
home like Beauty Week, which underscored that much of connecting with
any family is about shared experiences.
