Nails are Back Webinar
by American Association of Cosmetology Schools

Enhance your program with new skills that will take your students to a new level of client care, one more fitting current clientele. Train your technicians to work safely with three groups of clients who formerly were told to or desired to avoid nail salons: the fragile elderly who were directed not to go to nail salons; the fearful consumer whom the media scared away from nail technicians; and the chronically ill client who required special care due to chronic conditions, such as diabetes. You will be taught how to refer to and receive referrals from physicians and podiatrists who hold a new respect for your technicians. Taught how to take these skills to a welcoming public and an interested medical community, the technicians will expand their clientele and their job market while dramatically increasing respect for themselves, the school that trained them, and the nail industry.

Student for Life email

Education is the lifeblood of success. With the beauty industry constantly evolving, it’s crucial for your students to stay current on techniques, styles, and trends. Advanced education is the key. We should teach our students to seek education while in school and after graduation. It leads to greater passion, knowledge, and a more successful and fulfilling career.

In this industry, there is rarely something as intrinsically motivating as learning and mastering a new technique, style or trend.

Join Eric Fisher as he shares best practices for creating a culture of education in your school. Help your students be lifelong learners. Save your seat today!

Need to Spring Clean Your Marketing? These 10 Tips will help.
by Donald Miller

Spring has sprung in Nashville. It’s glorious, and I have the allergies to prove it. At StoryBrand, we’re working more out on the porch and taking breaks with the frisbee. We’re also doing a bit of spring cleaning around the office — emptying out closets, dusting off our desks, and purging stuff we don’t need anymore. The same goes for your marketing. Every once in awhile, you’ve got to clean up the parts of your program that don’t regularly get your attention. In the everyday hustle, this stuff can easily get neglected. Read more here.

5 Reasons You Should Smile More as a Leader
by Michael Hyatt
Several years ago, when I was the CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, I was presiding over our monthly business review meeting. One by one, each of our divisional managers would appear before the executive team and review their operating results for the previous month.
At the first break, one of my business consultants who was attending pulled me aside. “Are you angry at someone?” “No,” I said, somewhat surprised. “You sure?” she pressed. “Absolutely,” I insisted. “Then you might want to let your face know, because it looks like you are are ticked off! It’s intimidating and shutting people down.” Read more here.
