For more than 21 years, leading business-minded salon/spa owners have been turning to Strategies for the systems, guidance and accountability needed to achieve consistent bottom-line profits, dynamic team-driven cultures and unrivaled customer service.

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT: Unfortunately, most consulting firms gloss over the financial literacy and leadership issues that are at the root of most salon/spa business challenges. At Strategies, we don’t shy away from the real work that needs to be done. You need to understand your numbers. You need a pay program
that you can afford and that rewards the
right behaviors (we’re the inventors of Team-Based Pay). You need systems—for everything. Most importantly, you need the skills to become the leader your business needs you to be.

HOW WE WORK: The Strategies Membership Program offers access to phone coaching services, on-site training, seminars, and webinars for one low monthly fee. These services can be purchased a la carte as well.
