Summit Salon Business Center introduces business practices that tap into the heart of the service providers by increasing their personal income, and therefore the bottom-line of the salon company utilizing our proprietary Summit Level System.

Additional programs available: Associate Program—learn how to “grow your own” service providers with a concise career path. Summit Phase 2—A leadership program dedicated to Summit graduates. The Summit: Tampa, FL: Feb: 10-13; March 24-27; Apr. 21-24; May 19-22; Oct. 6-9; Oct. 20-23; and Nov. 3-6. New York, NY: June 9-12. Chicago: July 14-17. Toronto, Ontario: Aug. 11-14.

WORDS OF WISDOM: There are critical success factors for every salon company. The pillars of Summit Salon Business Center are sound financial business practices, performance based compensation, leadership/culture and marketing/branding. Each pillar represents a salon’s ability to run a sustainable company that has a foundation and longevity in our industry.

BETTER BOTTOM LINE IN 2013: Begin with the end in mind. First, establish the profit goal and build your budget, training and promotion plans based on the goal. Salon owners tend to chase the latest idea, rather than map out potential profit before the year begins.
