“A mentor is someone who shares their knowledge and experience to help inspire others to reach their goals”
Your chances of success in life and in business can be amplified by having the right mentor. There are many key advantages to having a mentor, but the biggest and most obvious advantages are accountability, expert industry knowledge, success and experience.
As salon owners, we are all generally amazing at our trade, but many of us have had to learn “on the job” how to be great leaders and scale our businesses. Or if you are a new graduate, you have graduated with your qualification, but now feel a little lost in what direction to take, and you are unsure about your long term goals and plans. It doesn’t matter what industry you are in, research shows that having a mentor is proven to increase your success and in turn, profitability.
I remember when i first started my business as a salon owner, I was given three big paper manuals, a bit of brief training and sent on my way. Expecting to make all the $$$ and have all the spare time to do the things that i love. Oh how i was wrong!
I have invested heavily in myself, my mindset and had numerous coaches and mentors over the years, dependent on the stage my business was at. I have also formally trained and became qualified in Business Operations and Management.
Some of my top 10 reasons why you need to find a mentor for your personal or business goals are as follows;
- Increased knowledge
- Constructive criticism
- Personal growth
- Words of encouragement
- Firm boundaries
- Unbiased opinions
- Trusted ally
- New perspective
- Networking connections
If you want to grow, If you want to grow, progress, and learn, you need to recruit a great mentor. I have had industry experience, mentored over 20 of my own staff (some of whom went on to run and own their own successful salons) , have had the wins, losses and everything in-between, and have so much knowledge and resources to share.
