Practical advice on making the jump from employee to independent, the book includes the real-world perspectives of five other successful independent stylists and tips from a salon-suite leasing agent about choosing a location and the questions to ask before leasing space. Entrepreneur and Small Business Consultant Ron Sturgeon and Celebrity Stylist David Blackstock have coauthored The Insider’s Guide to Earning 100K as a Self-Employed Salon Pro.
The fastest growing part of the beauty business is salon-suite rental. Across the United States, growing numbers of beauty professionals are choosing to lease spaces and become independent operators rather than working for a salon as an hourly or hourly-plus-commission employee. Although thousands of books are written every year for small business owners, very few are written specifically to help salon professionals thrive on their own.
A must read for all self employed salon pros. Includes a step by step salon marketing plan to keep your appointment book full.
