I was playing video games with my oldest daughter this weekend and at one point she wanted to try a soccer game she had never experienced. It is an old Nintendo 64 game station we have up at our cabin, so the game play is pretty simple, but the graphics are pretty "real" looking for an old game. As we were playing, I noticed something interesting, she was having trouble because she was failing to try.

We have a new operations director at our studio and she will be instrumental in helping us get ready for 2012. I love being prepared and find most salon owners and stylists are too busy to prepare, which means they do what they have always done and get the same results. I am telling you, in 2012, we are not going to do the same, we are going to do BETTER! The one thing that will insure success is a good plan - remember, you plan for success, failure just happens.

I started a new Facebook page, because I learned long ago the best way to create success is to start with something successful. Otherwise, when success happens simply because of luck, it is rarely maintained or duplicated (just look at most Lottery winners that end up poor again.) True success can be shared and even duplicated, just look at Starbucks or even martial arts to see some of the many levels of success we can transfer to others and other places.
With this in mind, the Facebook page “10 Things I’ve Learned” has started and I would like to share it with you.

As many of you probably know, I have been with my wife for a long time - 20 years together, 15 years married this month, and that is a great thing.
