Key Takeaways:


"When you hire an employee and they work for you, they've done their work. They've made your salon money. They've gained clients for you. You didn't lose money hiring them. And if they do decide to leave, you have to think about all the good work that they've done to make your company grow." - Michelle Sy

"Normalize the journey is a journey and that it is a struggle and it's not all roses and that I think it helps for anybody else that is maybe not at the same level of success, but then comparing themselves to say what's wrong with me? And it's not that anything's wrong with you. It's just that there are times where it's going to feel overwhelming and there are times where it's going to feel like, I don't know if I signed up for this, or I don't know if I still want this. There's going to be moments of all the emotions, and it's normal." - April Meese

"I always tell my team to have their clients mention their names. They have to mention your name in the review. So anybody looking at the review will always see your name and when they book online, if they remember your name, they're going to choose you." - Michelle Sy
