Check out my 66th podcast interview on The BE Series Podcast with Jackie Bertolette called “BE Inclusive.”
If you want to BE successful, you have to learn how to BE inclusive. Learn how to help people get what they want, and guess what — it’ll come full circle. That one small act of kindness will help YOU get what you want!
The #1 attribute you need is an “abundance mindset.” Stop trying to be in competition with others in your industry. Instead, unite with them. Join forces. That’s the mindset I’ve worked on personally over the years, especially after becoming a Paul Mitchell school owner, then a John Maxwell Leadership coach, and then a member of Intercoiffure and meeting the amazing salon owner/entrepreneur Candy Shaw. She mentored me and coached me to start a Michigan Salon Owners group. It has been a wonderful way to network, collaborate, and learn from each other in order to elevate the beauty industry together. We have a long way to go in training and educating Michigan salon owners in both simple things and complex things, but I am proud to say we have made a big dent. Little things like following laws and rules of the Department of Labor to protect our Paul Mitchell graduates really make a difference when you’re collaborating and not competing.
An “abundance mindset” is really a mindset that states there is enough to go around for everyone. I have witnessed this in other industries like coffee shops, retail centers, and the fast food industry. The list goes on and on. There are enough people on earth for everyone to win. Do the best you can with what you have, and don’t try to bring your competition down.
This week my challenge is to work on your personal “abundance mindset.” Look within your industry and see who you can collaborate with and who you can ask to mentor you. I truly believe ‘one is too small a number to achieve greatness.’ I have never seen one person create success on their own. Look around you to see who you can collaborate with this week.
