DESCRIBE THE CURRENT SITUATION:
This year I quit working for someone because we couldn’t agree on how much I should be paid for being the only one in the salon doing NBR hair extensions. I was not financially prepared to take on my own business and honestly really didn’t know what I was getting myself in to. I love running my own business but since I was a child money was always an issue and my parents were constantly telling me how we don’t have money so I grew these feelings and anxiety around money. That has slowly gotten better but I’m panicked every single month that I won’t be able to pay my apartment rent and it’s really killing me to allow my boyfriend to take on the brunt of our finances even though he doesn’t mind at all. I’ve always been the financially stable one. I feel like since I started my business in May I have slowly been losing sight of myself and I have been feeling so lost and just lack luster and I am not usually that person. Im constantly feeling uncomfortable and not confident. I have been saying things without thinking and end up being incredibly embarrassed afterwards. Im constantly in uncomfortable situations in my work and home life (going to boujee weddings in the south with my boyfriend and not having a good relationship with his father and dealing with the stress of not fitting in with those people..) I used to say get comfortable being uncomfortable because that’s where your growth comes from but now I feel like I can’t take care of my clients how I should. I also hate my studio suite that I’m working in. I have no windows and it feels like I am in a closet all day. I am moving to a suite with a window in the spring when it becomes available but I need to find a way to be happy until then and it feels impossible.I also don’t want to feel like once I move things will be better because who knows. We also just found out that my boyfriends mom might have colon cancer so I feel like I’m carrying a lot of weight.
At convention I wanted to feel excited and recharged but I found myself crying a lot and just feeling tired. I compare myself to everyone and I know I shouldn’t but I feel like I’m failing. I talked to a lot of people who inspired me but I’m just feeling so overwhelmed.
As you go through and begin to change your services, your clientele, your salon, even your mentality, you are going to come across problems.
These problems will range from how to make or break partnerships, how to let go of clients, how to raise your prices, maybe even let go of someone on your staff, really anything inside your business.
Then there are the personal problems. Nothing will affect your business MORE than not handling your own emotional, mental, and home state.
A Hot Seat is designed for you to have a ONE on ONE with a Trainer. To go through the problem you are having and figure out the next steps in order to overcome it.
The Hot Seat Training will be available to attend LIVE, and watch On Demand for 30 days following the training.
While you might be nervous talking about your problems in front of the other Artists, you'll be surprised by how many people are dealing with the SAME issue.
All it takes is ONE person to be brave enough, and bold enough to speak first.
