Running your own business can seem like an insurmountable dream, especially in the highly competitive beauty industry.
Yes, there’s so much to know and to take on but that isn’t a reason to give up on your dream of independence. Everyone needs a little help and business acumen is learned over time.
Learn while you earn — your business your way
If you want to set out on your own, but aren’t quite sure where to start, having a place where you can work and learn at the same time seems too good to be true — and that’s where Executive Beauty Suites comes in.
This unique business model offers entrepreneurs space to rent to run their own beauty business — everything from hairstyling to waxing and piercing — all under one roof and at the same time, provides education. Beauty professionals specializing in services that include hair, skin, nails, massage, waxing, permanent makeup and tattoos have access to:
- Custom private suites
- 24-hour access
- Scheduling your own hours
- Carrying any retail product you choose
- Basic furniture to minimize start-up costs
- Networking events
- Continuing education
- Direct access to beauty supply representatives
- An environment for beauty professionals to maximize their profits
As a small business owner, you can learn about how to build your client list, handle retail, set up automated booking, and how to maximize both your money and your time.
Laycee Gwyther and her husband Josh started Executive Beauty Suites three years ago as a way to help other beauty professionals achieve their goals of independence in the industry. Laycee speaks from personal experience after over 14 years in the industry, and knows how big the hurdle can seem. She and Josh focus on “making a better environment for beauty professionals and believe in community, not competition,” Laycee notes.
All work and no play
Part of the education process means learning about having an abundant life, making sure that you and yours can enjoy quality of life at home and run a business too! Learning on the job is hard to do and can be costly in time and money. Executive Beauty Suites offers a unique, on-site learning opportunity in their brand new 400-square-foot classroom and 22-room facility where they teach everything from money matters to product knowledge.
