THE
SELF EMPLOYED STYLIST
BLUEPRINT

Say hello to your complete A-Z guide to setting up your biz as an independent stylist!

Get the administrative part of your suite or chair rental business squared away so you can spend less time figuring out logistics and more time enjoying the freedom of your self employed life!

Are you telling yourself...

“I'm tired of just winging it when it comes to my biz” →

Great! You're in the right place. This blueprint will literally hold your hand through each step of getting all the business-y parts of your business in order.

“I’m not ready to be self employed!” →

There's a chance you might just be scared, which is okay because we can be scared and work towards our goals at the same time!

“What if I don’t make enough money behind the chair as an independent stylist?!” →

Have you really crunched the numbers yet?! There's a good chance you could be making MORE money right now PLUS your opportunity for growth will be in your own hands!

“What if my clients don’t follow me?” →

I have yet to see this happen with any of my students. The more likely thing is that your clients will be so excited to support you in this next step of your career!

Trust me, because I've been there!

Working 5 days a week on a schedule I had no control over, bringing home barely enough money to cover my rent, wondering how the heck anyone ever pays off their student loans, and wishing my day to day in the salon felt just a liiiittle more exciting and creative than it was feelin'.

And then in 2016, I finally took the leap!

And since then, I've not only established all the ins and outs of owning a business an independent stylist but I've been able to make 6-figures each year while only working 3 days a week in the salon.

I've been able to pay off all of my debt and build a savings account and a retirement fund that provides me with a feeling of security.

I don't miss anyone's birthdays anymore, I'm able to trek the 500 miles home to see my family during the holidays, I take trips whenever makes the most sense for me and best of all, I actually have time to take care of me (which in turns makes me a happier, more creative stylist)!

FAQ'S

How long will I have access to the course? Does it expire?

You get lifetime access to your course! It never expires, which means that when I add new content or make any adjustments, you get instant access to any upgrades as well!

Can I go at my own pace?

Life is buuuusy, I get it! That's why I decided to create this course for you online! You can take all the time you need, rewatch, pause, slow down or speed it up. The pace is yours to choose!

I'm already a Self Employed Stylist but haven't quite wrapped my head around the business side of things. Will this course benefit me?

Short answer: YES! So many of us stylists take the leap to self employment without so much as batting a lash at the actual business side of things, usually because it's too overwhelming to even begin to think about. I get it, hair school didn't prepare us these things! This course is 100% focused on helping you put the proper systems in place to run a legit biz as a stylist whether you are just starting out or you're already in the thick of it.

I don't know if I want to get my own studio or rent a chair, will this course help me with either option?

Yep! This course is for studio owners and chair renters alike. I cover aspects of both business models throughout the course!

What if I have questions as I'm moving through the course?

I'm here for ya! I'll be popping in to the course community group every week to help with any questions you might have, and you might even be able to connect with other Self Employed Stylists in your area!

You've been ready, you just need a hand. . . I got you!
