Change of Season

Dear Clients and Friends,
 
I am sitting outside in Santa Cruz, it is the evening, at the tail end of one of those glorious 100 degree beach summer days.  It’s a Saturday night, I can hear the waves crashing on the shore and the screams of delight and fear coming from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
 
In the true spirit of an entrepreneur I am thinking about my businesses, the who, what, why, how, where and when of Swans Studios, my behind-the-chair business and my consulting practice.  It’s A Lot.  It’s always been A Lot, it is my A Lot and mostly I love it.
 
I love what I do.  I do it because I am passionate about the salon industry and because it is how I make my living.  I do it by choosing to be the best I can be everyday and believe me some days that’s a stretch. I work in my studio and sometimes on the phone. I work when it is best for me and best for my clients. 
 
It is September and it is the time of year to take stock and make plans for the Fall and last quarter of the year.  Soon we will have cooler weather, if we sit outside we will need a warm jumper and maybe a hat.  Sometimes when I review my businesses I can agonize over the who, what, why, where and when of my A Lot, but I know that like the roller coaster, business can be up and down.  So, when I am afraid it can all go wrong and believe me I have those thoughts more than I like to admit, I tell myself jump on board and trust the ups and downs they will lead to the next chapter.
 
What is the next chapter for you?  At your next hair appointment let’s talk about your Fall look.
