You probably know that starting a new retail service business can be hard. But how would it be if you were starting it with your mom?
Or if you’re a mom who’s retired from a successful career in the buttoned up world finance, would you be willing to dive into a new creatively-driven business with your daughter?
Well, in this interview, we meet two women who are taking on that challenge.
Shelley Anderson and Sarah Thompson are the mother-daughter team behind Blush Salon, a full-service salon located next to Bonefish right here in Bonita Springs.
At the end of 2019, Blush celebrated its first year in business, and in this interview, we have an honest talk about their lessons learned in that year, their struggles and surprises, and their vision for a one-stop salon—a model that’s not as common in the beauty industry these days.
Whether or not you’ve ever been to a salon, I think you’ll find the conversation interesting and useful as you think about your own career and business.
Oh, and a special note:
Not long after this interview, Shelley announced that she’ll be running for Bonita Springs City Council in the March 17, 2020 special election, filling the District 2 seat that was open after Greg DeWitt resigned to become the fire chief. (By the way, look for my interview with Greg on the podcast, too)
So we don’t talk about the election or City Council on this interview, just in case you were wondering.
