I was telling this story today and my client mentioned I should share it on the blog. Here goes!
Before I opened Morphic, I had a job in a salon I was awfully unhappy at. I had a tyrannical boss who had put me through multiple character assassinating meetings that would leave me literally staggering to my next client. As this hurtful cycle continued, I knew I wasn't where I needed to be. There was so much negativity and discouragement, all brought on by terrible management. It was not an easy place to thrive in my work or even enjoy it.
After careful planning and preparation, I was able to become an entrepreneur by opening my own salon at Sola Studios. I remember the morning of Januray 26, 2011, getting ready for work on my first day. It was uniquely a different and joyful experience. I felt such freedom and liberation, like a heavy collar around my neck had been removed. It was exhilarating, thinking about my future, my awesome clients, and what my business would look like. How different it would be this time... it had nothing to do with anyone else! I applied my mascara that morning with so much pride and joy; it was declaring my own greatness.
I consider coming to Sola Studios to open Morphic is one of the best decisions I ever made, second to becoming a hairdresser. It's a wonderful place for me to thrive. Every day I come to work, I swipe my keyfob and walk through the door feeling comfortable, confident, and in control.
I am so grateful. Thanks so much to each of you for being on this journey with me! I'm loving every minute.
