Partnering with Others

  • Partnering with others may be difficult. It doesn’t matter who you’re going into a partnership with, but the mindset is that you are both your partner’s employee and boss.
  • Respect the partner’s goals and wishes, don’t remain in charge all the time. Cooperate with one another, and make sure each partner is putting effort for the other.
  • A partnership can get you through difficult times with the addition of a larger buy-in group, and gives you someone to lean on.
  • Make sure your partners have a set of complementary skills you don’t have. If they are the type of person you can catch up with an outside of business hours on social level.
Building Your Team
  • Your team must want to work for you. 90% of success is about turning up; if people keep turning up, they keep their jobs.
  • Staff aren’t a part of your business; they are your business. Going the extra mile for your team makes all the difference. If you treat everybody like you have an interest in them, it makes a big difference.
  • Everyone tires out of doing the same thing over and over again. Keep your team challenged, looking for new ways of doing things differently.
  • When developing a team, allow your staff the opportunity to cultivate the store into their own collective style. Know when not to be there, and let them make their own decisions.
  • Everyone needs to feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. If your staff can answer what they do with pride (without the simple “I’m just a hairdresser”), they’re much more likely to stick around.
Pushing Yourself as a Boss/Employer/Leader
  • “The day you quit learning is the day you hang up your scissors”
  • Your business has to be the perfect environment for what you want to create. Run a business you want to work in, but also, run a business you want to be a customer in.
  • Create a space & culture you live and love.
Working with Parkinson’s
  • Working with a disability no matter the load makes business harder. Building a cooperative team therefore becomes increasingly important in maintaining efficiency.
  • Parkinson’s comes in different types and stages, not everyone has the same diagnosed symptoms. Make sure you accommodate for the differences, and respect their effort.
  • When interacting with people with Parkinson's, make sure you give them a chance to talk if they have trouble.
