HEREHealth, Wellness and Financial Success
Better Health Leads to Higher Pro ts
The Greek physician Herophilus stated, “When
health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art
cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth be-
comes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”
Although the connection between health and
finances may seem indirect, the two are unequivo-
cally correlated. Without good health, all areas of
one’s life suffer, including career and finance.
Good health and well-being are necessary for
a happy, financially secure life and promoting
healthy habits in the workplace are essential in
creating personal and business prosperity.
Encouraging healthy habits in the salon can
significantly enhance individual incomes and can
boost the salon’s bottom line.

a good stylist, makeup artist and nail tech. Healthy
pros perform better at tasks, are more attentive
and have better memory than those with poor
health. Health and wellness also increase one’s
morale, and professionals who are healthy are
typically more energetic and enthusiastic, making
them a pleasure to be around.
Both staff and clients prefer to be around some-
one with a positive attitude who is easy to commu-
nicate with and who has good energy. Financially
successful stylists are not only creative and artistic,
but are also thoughtful, courteous and fun, and
draw in new clients constantly.
Being healthy also reduces falls and other ac-

and colleagues to take care of their health reduces
