Successful salon owners knows that when it comes to business, it’s best not to go it alone. In the 2019 SALON TODAY 200, 55 percent of owners reported they have worked with a professional business coach or consultant in the past three years.

To help owners and managers learn about the different focuses and capabilities of a variety of salon advisors, SALON TODAY hosted a Coaches and Consultants Showcase at the Data-Driven Salon Summit held in May in Atlanta. Each coach prepared a short Ted-Talk style presentation and we recorded each one to create this virtual guide.

Professional athletes have coaches, business professionals have coaches and successful hairdressers and salon owners have coaches. But, Zan Ray and Tom Collins believe even coaches need coaches. They strive to be their best by continually educating themselves with teachings from internationally recognized sources. Together, Ray and Collins have 100 years of collective hairdressing business, project and financial experience. Take this opportunity to meet them and see how they can help your salon business.
