For Your Reading PleasureAlan Austin Smith is a popular business, marketing and customer service expert who has helped hairdressers achieve success through his two previous books, The Fantastic Hairdresser and The Fantastic Boss.  Smith’s latest book, The Fantastic Salon, is aimed at salon owners and stresses his five business principles: revolutionary strategies, focus on profit, committed team,
delighted clients and unique marketing.

Smith has found that the secret to business success lies in embracing “the other stuff.”
