Today’s Guest

Richard McCabe the Lifestyle Salon Coach has created an easy to follow 9-step framework to take salon owners from the war-zone (where everyday is a battle) to the lifestyle zone, ‘living life on your terms’

With only 5% of salon owners making good money from their salons and a whopping 50% of salons will close their doors before their 5th birthday, it’s obvious that most salon owners are winging it or following a broken and out-dated model. Something needs to change.

Richard shares his cutting edge strategies with salon owners from around the world, via a virtual classroom delivering on point strategies that actually transforms salons into money making machines. As UK and Australia’s number one Lifestyle Salon Coach he is the expert in transforming salons by delivering his unique 9- step system designed to get a 30% increase in salon takings in 12 months to thousands of salon owners around the world.
