Who’s Going to #ISSELB?

How to survive2
Who’s going to be at Long Beach ISSE in January?

I’m going to be speaking twice on Sunday, then I’ll likely hang out at the Pulp Riot stage as well.

My first session is geared towards owners and managers, and I’m going to address the reality of the business;
how, through a lot of hard work, good systems, trial and error, and a lot courage, my wife and I became very successful.

And how after some poor decision making and mismanagement, solely our fault, we almost lost everything, suffering 2 walkouts, the most recent being 4 months ago.

I will be putting it all out there: what happened, the mistakes we made, and how are we navigating the hardest challenges we’ve ever faced in 20 years as salon owners.

This is going to be the first time I’ve spoken about our issues and this is largely the reason my blog has been quiet for the last year.

My second session will be as part of the Incredible Salon Success panel with some people I truly respect and look up to. I’m looking forward to adding my perspective to this group.

I look forward to being back in California and seeing some familiar and new faces.

I’m back, older, wiser, and will continue to bring the reality that nobody else talks about.
