Key Takeaways:


"I prefer to sell my reputation because if you're able to build a foundation you can sell your reputation. Other people will build your business for you and I think that's the biggest secret that was never thought of." - Jena Cash


"What do people want? What do people like? What do I keep hearing that they like? So often that we don't ask enough questions because lots of beauty professionals are asking "What do I need to do? What do I need to say?" Instead of focusing on the client, what they want and what they are saying." - April Meese


"Stop adding things to your plate if it doesn't benefit you in the end. Offer one (service). And then guess what happens? You're known for this, you're the IT girl that offers this particular thing, and everybody knows about you." - Jena Cash


"Another benefit of being a specialist or being known for something is you're able to charge more because you're the best. You're known for that, so you can charge more for that." - Jena Cash
