I believe that it is important to share the best of what I have learned with others. By doing so, I hope to provide you with an advantage over those who have to learn everything for themselves. This Best Practice Series focuses on points that I believe lead to success in the beauty industry. These are the fundamentals that I used to expand my company from 1 salon to 4. We use these methods every day to grow and prosper. – Eric Fisher
be a daymaker
Our industry gives a unique opportunity to touch people and make a difference. We see them on the best days of their lives, and we see them on their worst. You never know what someone else is dealing with behind the scenes. It is so important to be a daymaker.
One of my former students, Megan – who is now an established stylist – had this to say.
“I had a conversation last night with a guest. She’s had a rough year, and I’ve watched it unfold every 9 weeks. But last night listening to this girl tell me her struggle, and really sitting there with her in her feelings was hard. It was also magical, and the relationship we formed was pretty cool. She doesn’t open up to many people, but I have made her feel safe, seen and she no longer feels alone. I get to do that for people, and that’s incredible. The absolute best part of my job are the conversations I get to have. Some are hard, some are funny.”
