• Can’t find the right group? Start your own.
It can be business oriented, parent oriented or a
book club, for example. It doesn’t have to be large
— just passionate and invested. Ask your top cli-
ents if they’d be interested in meeting for breakfast
or coffee once a month to support one another. If
you get enough participation, organize the event
and invite them to each bring two friends with
similar interests. Have a short agenda and let the
group guide the topic for the next meeting.

owners or stylists.
With more beauty profession-
als working independently than ever, why not
start your own networking group? Start by finding
like-minded people who would like to meet for
breakfast or lunch once a month to discuss com-
mon challenges, discuss new industry trends and
serve as a support for one another. If you don’t
know enough people to invite, ask your distributor
salon consultant for help or ask if you can post an
invitation at your local beauty supply store.
• Build your beauty network.
relationships with your distributor salon consul-
tants, the team at your beauty supply store, the
educators for the brands you carry and even your
professional beauty industry media like
will give you an advantage over your competitors.
Let’s connect! Drop me an email and share your
stories about networking successes or challenges.
