Health, 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.

Staff and employees who are healthy are less

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-

cidents while on the job and encouraging staff

and colleagues to take care of their health reduces
