After 21 years of salon ownership, Mary’s dream came true in early 2011 when she found a successor and sold her salon for a profit – in a down economy!
Mary has been in the industry for more than four decades. She believes the foundation for her success was managing cash flow and expenses, mentoring staff, providing growth opportunities and giving warm, caring, professional services to guests.
Mary learned a number of lessons in her years as a salon owner, including being a team-based pay salon for more than 18 years:
“We are all in this together,” said Mary. “We are stronger as a united team.” “Being successful in business is an ever-changing game of methodical decision-making, smart risk-taking and dedicated account- ability,” she said. “At Strategies we always play to win. I’m focused and passionate about getting others to be the best they can be. I relish the opportunity to share my business savvy to create success stories from each unique situation.”
