This time of year is all about being grateful and appreciating everything that you have in your life. As the year comes to an abrupt close, you reflect back on the decisions you’ve made, some good, some not so good, and prepare to move forward into the next year.
A year ago, I was wrestling with a decision on whether or not to take the leap and open up my own salon. At the time, I was struggling with a lot of things and didn’t think I had the confidence or will to branch out on my own. I soon realized though that it was either now or never, so I leaped. It’s scary moving into the unknown, as all of you know, and thankfully, I had a great support system around me that assured me that everything was going to be fine; and also had no problem nudging me back on track when I wandered off into oblivion.
One part of that support system is my loving husband and my wonderful, faithful friends. Every step of the way they had my back, urging me on, helping me to stay focused, or maybe to help me decompress after a long days work. I am thankful for them in so many ways.
The other part of that support system is my clients! I would never have had the courage to grow and be out on my own if not for their support as well. They are who keeps me and my business alive. People say that a person’s hairdresser is also their therapist, and I’m saying that it definitely goes both ways. I have been given some of the best advice from my clients. I am grateful for them.
I can’t say enough times how happy I am having made this decision to begin Hair to the Throne Salon, thank you to everyone who helped make this possible! I also want to wish everyone a safe, happy, holiday season! Much love, Shannon.
