I have never really been ready for a new year in a way that made my soul yearn for more.
Closing 2021 means Groomed Salons is turning 5 in February, and heading into year 6 means I had to take the time to sit down and reflect on the first 5 years of being a business owner. What a ride.
“The last 5 years as a business owner have been the hardest, and most rewarding years of my life.”
Talk about challenging. Rewarding.
Would you change anything?
I can't imagine anyone every saying that things run perfect all the time. There's days where I want to pull my hair out. That my feet are aching before they even hit the floor in the morning. When I can't remember the last time I cooked dinner for my husband, or when I called my family. Actually, that's every day. But would I change anything? Not a chance. I have grown so much over the last 5 years, in ways that I never saw myself. I am bold, I take risks. I'm not afraid of failing, and I feel empowered by empowering others. For the first time, I am a morning person, someone who is not only always on time, but ridiculously early (I see you late for lifers in the back!). While there isn't anything I would change, I welcome 2022 with open arms to create new, healthy habits that will allow me to continue growing and being the best version of myself. I want to choose to be all in for my family, my clients, myself.
I welcome you to follow the journey this year- it's gonna be another wild ride!
