Lately its been hard for me to blog, especially with all thats going on in my life right now. I created this blog to highlight my steps to taking over my mom's salon and its hard to keep the focus on that. The shop is great and slowly but surely my position there is increasing. I held a wonderful meeting the other day, set some major and important rules effective Feb 1st but I still don't feel like a BOSS. I had so many plans for the salon, I wanted to expand to different cities and even reopen the beauty school my mom once had.
Being a boss you can't allow your personal life to interfere with your duties. I am learning this the hard way. Until Next Time.....

My grandma used to say don't care too much for anyone because you were born in this world alone....most of the hardest trials you have to surpass alone and most importantly, when you leave this world its the same way you arrived....alone. She also used to tell me not to like someone more than they like me and that my heart would never get crushed. I definitely didn't listen, and I should have. She was 105 when she died and if that's not wisdom....I don't know what is.

One thing I used to be afraid of was admitting I was wrong. But one of the greatest traits a boss can have is to always be honest, polite and openly admit when you are wrong. I used to be very prideful, and that has cost me many relationships and many friendships, but at the end of the day if they were worth keeping, they would still be here. I have learned a lot from my mom and I learn more every second of the day. You cant be too proud....because if you didn't need anyone in the world, God would have just left Adam alone.

It is 2011 and I am looking forward to a lot of things this year. My official graduation, me taking over the salon, and Mr. Parker and I taking things to the next level. I am so excited for this year. I am doing really well saving my money, building a clientele and revamping the salon to what it used to be. I'm loving my life right now. :)
