Salon Success: Is It Time To Leave?

“Eventually they will all leave”, so says Antony Whitaker ‘The Two Minute Salon Manager’ from Even you as the owner will one day close the business or sell the business, so don’t think that your team will stay forever, just like you, when the time is right some of your team have other paths to follow. If you are an employee there may come a day when it’s time to move on. Perhaps it’s time to open your own salon, or perhaps for whatever the reason the salon is now no longer a fit for you. Either way, when it’s time to leave do it the right way, do it with honour and do it with pride, treat the owner the way that you would like to be treated if you were them.
