Today we’re talking how to start a Home Salon business with Cally Borg. I’ve wanted to cover this topic for sometime as the popularity of running a professional Home Salon business is going from strength to strength. Could it be for you, too?

As a successful Home Salon business owner, Cally is on a mission to positively smash the current stigma that is often attached to running a Home Salon business.

In this episode she will be sharing her journey of how she has created a successful ‘six figure’ lifestyle business working three days a week, around her family commitments, no evenings or weekends. AND, she also has half terms and the summer holidays off!

I wanted to get Cally to come on the show today to learn how she has done just this and more. Things like: what made her become a Home Salon business owner, the space realistically needed, the running costs, having staff, fitting in a business in and around her home-life. But most of all, how has she created the business model that works successfully around her lifestyle goals.

As an advocate for professionally run Home Salons, Cally gives us some honest, practical and candid insights – both pros and cons – on running a successful Home Salon business that is all shaped around having a fulfilling family life. I love that and know you’ll love it, too!

Howtocutter’s, let’s go to it!
