In 2006 (immediately after getting my cosmetology license) I opened my own salon suite business.  I did this before the salon suite chains like Sola Salons and Phenix salons suites became popular…I’ll tell you more about this later. I had no clientele, no experience, and very little money. Fast forward and I design beauty websites, conduct advanced cosmetology training and business workshops, rent salon suites, and provide plan of advice to beauty professionals.

If someone would have told me when I started my career that I would take my experience working over 30 years as an administrator the federal government, 20+ years knowledge as an entrepreneur and business owner, research, successes and failures and even “what the &$!#%” moments” experience a be a resource to help other beauty professionals – I would have said there is now way.  How can I do this while…

1.  Being a wife and mother of 2 young children.  

2.  Work a full-time job.

3.  Develop my skills by becoming a certified non-surgical hair replacement specialist and

4.  Run a service based business at the same time.

When I graduated from cosmetology school I knew that there were 3 things I needed to succeed.


Place – Resource – Network



1. Place – to do business

2. Resources – to get my business up and running

3. Network – of support to enhance my skills so that I could be the best stylist and business owner possible.
