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.
