Rachel is one of the kindest and most hard working people that I know! I am so grateful that she took the time out of her busy schedule to answer these questions and I hope you enjoy getting to know her a bit better! -Autumn
What is your business and how long have you been in operation?
Bombshell Blow Dry Bar almost 4 years
The Salon Professional Academy 1 year
When did you know you wanted to run your own business?
Since age 10 probably! My parents are entrepreneurs and have owned a business since i was a kid. I grew up in small business and i have a passion for it! I went to school for marketing and now i have a Salon and Salon Academy! It’s crazy where God leads you. It doesn’t always turn out the way you thought it would but that’s ok because for me it turned out 1000 times better!
What is one piece of advice you would like to share with fellow entrepreneurs?
Always do what is right even if it’s doesn’t benefit you. Treat your employees like you would treat your family and always think about what is in it for them before thinking what is in it for you!
What are some of your favorite things to do?
I love working! I know that sounds ridiculous but I can’t wait to go to work in the morning. I love spending time with my salon guests, students and employees! I work with some of the most creative, loving, intelligent women (one man, my husband) on the face of the earth! They love what they do and that makes my job easy! I am here for them and I do everything I do to make them wildly successful! The school is my opportunity to give back what i have learned and to help amazing young adults make life long careers out of what we teach them. It’s so rewarding knowing that our school will impact hundreds maybe thousands of lives!
I also enjoy getting my hair done...of course i have to utilize my salon services:)
And spending time with my family is very important too! It’s hard not to think about work when you are at home but it’s important to create sacred times with your family too!
