In the beauty world, you just pass out cards at Target or hope you can get some referrals at church or with a group of soccer moms. Before B-School...I was passing out flyers door to door. I was trying a million different business ideas, jumping from salon to salon. I was so desperate that I worked for a salon making only minimum wage to help pay the bills. I was doing weddings although I actually hated doing it. All the financial pressure was on my husband to provide for our family.
In the first 2 weeks of B-School, I had already made back my initial investment!
I went from poverty-level income to six figures. From $14,000 to $95,000. Then $155,000 the next year. I trended towards $200,000 the year after that. I went from begging for clients to having a six-month waitlist. This has afforded me to build a bigger brand and branch out into online courses and passive income.
I opened the first curls-only salon in all of Oregon and was just featured on our local news channel. They called me Oregon's Queen of Curls!
I just taught my first class to other stylists and had people come from Indiana, West Virginia, Vermont, Texas, Nevada and Washington. They literally flew here to take my class.
I hired my first employee and now her life has drastically changed as a result. I have a full time assistant and my husband paints full-time as a career now and has an art studio inside my salon so we get to spend all day together.
My entire life has changed. Like, pinch me. Everyone congratulates me on all the success and when they ask me what made the shift... I always say B-School.
What’s changed the most is now I live in abundance vs. lack. If a car breaks down, I just take it to the shop. If a friend is in need, I can donate time and money to help. I never worry about simple things like groceries and gas. I am not fearful of being stuck or hopeless. I’m eternally grateful. B-School changed the course of my life.
