THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY SURVIVAL GUIDE
2nd EDITION

Ten years after its release, The Beauty Industry Survival Guide has been updated and expanded for a new generation of salon professionals.

The vast majority of these lessons aren’t taught in schools and don’t appear in textbooks; they’re learned through experience—often in a way that is less-than-gentle.

Individual Consulting

LET'S TALK

APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE

Many salon owners know how to deliver the services their business offers but were never taught how to manage their business. Even fewer understand the enormous challenges salons face. Unfortunately, this lack of understanding causes many salon owners to make costly mistakes, setting their business up for failure before they even open the doors. As a salon business management consultant, I specialize in helping salon owners and independent operators develop a new way of thinking, eliminating their insecurities and teaching them to embrace the entrepreneurial spirit of owning their own business.

All downloads are delivered in a .ZIP (compressed) file .

A .ZIP folder is like a digital cardboard box containing all of your virtual products. Like any other shipment you receive, you’ll have to open the box! To do that, you’ll have to “extract” the contents.

If your phone/tablet does not have this capability, there are apps you can download to extract contents from zip files, but for best results, download the files on a laptop or desktop computer, extract the files there, and then send them to your mobile devices if you like to read on the go. (If you attempt to access a zip folder on a mobile device that doesn’t know what a zip folder is, you’ll get a screen full of random jibberish, which is pretty in its own way, but definitely not useful.)

You can try, but…

I highly recommend not attempting to edit spreadsheets on displays smaller than a 15-inch tablet.
(Things get very tiny and very easy to mess up.)

If your phone/tablet does not have the ability to decompress or extract contents from zip files, there are plenty of apps that will allow you to do so. However, for best results, download the files on a laptop or desktop computer, extract the files there, and then send them to your mobile devices or upload it to your preferred virtual drive.

If you attempt to access a file inside a zip folder or a PDF on a device that doesn’t know what a zip folder or a PDF is, you’ll get a screen full of random jibberish, which is pretty in its own way, but definitely not useful. See “How do I open my download folder?” above to learn how to properly extract the files from your downloaded folder.
