Easily create an easy 3-step plan in your salon. Even if you’re off on Monday in your mind you’re still at your salon. Do this simple exercise and it’ll give you an amazing week I promise.
Mondays for me as a salon owner in the early days always felt as if I was freaking out over what the week would bring into my salon. Until that is I found out this simple ritual.
I would use Monday to do things like I would do things at home, relaxing, cutting the grass, taking my dog for a walk, and so on. This always gave me the mental space to give decent thinking to what was happening at the salon. This, in turn, would lead to me take a decision on what was going to happen that week.
So, when I was done doing what I was doing I would then create a simple and small weekly plan for my salons for the week.
Sounds easy I know but it’s just this.
- Step number one is to create the stuff that increases the salon turnover and do this first.
- Step number two, the stuff you dread doing – do it second.
- Step number three, the stuff that really needs doing do it last of all.
That’s what worked for me.
Then I would have a list of sorts so when I got into my salon on Tuesday morning I would be ready to set the world on fire at least for that week anyway.
So, use your Monday to plan your salon business for the week.
Questions to ask: How do I create the plan? What do I do, how do I do it, do I need help or advice, do I need to do anything in particular? Keep your plans detailed.
So, if that is what we do on Monday, what do we do on Tuesday? I’ll show you in the next section.
Whatever you do today don’t let the day end without making a salon plan for the week. This will help you push your salon business forward.
