Sometimes its good to know we’re not alone, especially with our work challenges. Thanks to Lisa Starr and Mindbody for listing the 6 most common mistakes people in our industry make.

  • Mistake #1 |  A fuzzy why: If your business is going to succeed in the long term, you need to have a clear vision for your salon or spa (it all starts with a proper salon or spa business plan) and top-notch branding


  • Mistake #2 | The math doesn’t add up: Avoid having this problem plague you by focusing on cash flow, budgeting, and identifying a path to profitability (if you’re not already there)


  • Mistake #3 | Underestimating the importance of your team: You need to follow sensible hiring protocols to find people who understand and can help you carry out your vision; having an excellent team means a superior experience for your customers (hi, retention!)




  • Mistake #6 | Neglecting the greater ecosphere: Spas and salons don’t exist in a vacuum; it’s important for salon and spa owners to consider what trends are happening in the industry and ensure they’re regularly engaging with their communities

Engage with spa professionals who can assist you in  working through these potential pitfalls.  Connect with folks who have history within the industry because they’re more likely to be invested in your success beyond the present moment.
