A business turnaround is gritty stuff and often by the time an expert has been called in there’s a dozen fires to put out and a business hanging by a thread.
In walks the ever-feared Tabatha Coffey from Bravo’s oldie but goodie Salon Takeover who grabs hold of a struggling salon and in one week transforms it into a thriving business.
Her advice is edgy and blunt.
She bulldozes her subjects to step up, to get their heads out of their bums, and to take full responsibility.
The situation is always worse than the business owner lets on and self denial and fantasy is often at source.
It’s mind boggling, but guess what, drinking alcohol at work, coming in late with a hangover, and screaming in front of clients and employees is a big-massive blunder.
A filthy work environment is uncool and unorganized systems brings out the beast in people.
Good enough doesn’t cut it. Literally, if you lack the knowledge of basic techniques or skills then its a hobby and not a business.
Baby steps are band-aids.
Sometimes you have to trash it to change it.
