The first event is set for Sydney on February 18 at Alpha PDR, the Hellenic Club, with Brisbane on February 24 at the Calile to follow, Melbourne on February 25 at QT coming up next and key dates locally and internationally in the pipeline for 2019 and 2020.

The event style is set as an open-forum, closed-door format, where guests can share their own experience and the business intel and insights from these successful women is sure to inspire attendees. They will be joined by a local guest speaker to add a regional viewpoint to each event. Natalie Anne will bring her insights to Melbourne and Brisbane, Joey Scandizzo will support the event in Sydney and Brodie Lee will be there in Brisbane. Libby Cornish is joining the team to facilitate each session.

“Owning a business can be very daunting and at times, overwhelming,” Renya said. “‘For The Love Of’ came from Monique and I seeing a gap in the education arena for salons owners. It’s a breakthrough in the education industry, it’s heartfelt, handmade and delivered by us – but all about you. We want to help take the guess work out of challenges in the market place while guiding you to create a unique brand that engages your clientele and motivates your team.”

“I see ‘For The Love Of’ as a great way to build relationships within our wonderful industry,” Monique added. “It’s the connection between each other that helps us to grow. Renya and I will extend invitations for each event through our professional and social networks, inviting new guests to join us around the table. No one event will be the same. As education becomes so accessible, it’s time to set the pace and bring a new wave of education to the table. We believe nobody wants to settle for the ordinary.”

Monique and Renya bring incomparable education, editorial, business and salon experience to the breakfast table, with talent and insights to change your business perspective and offer vital takeaways.

“We go through a lot as salon owners and its about preparing for the highs and the lows and better understanding how to manage them” Monique said.

“There’s so much more to growing as an artist than coming to work on a fashion show. I think for me people are always trying to perfect their work. I fear perfection. Perfection is a sign you’re scared and don’t believe in yourself. We want you to believe in yourself both creatively and in business,” Renya said. ”

“Nobody else is really doing business seminars like this – we will cover everything and allow each attendee to ‘bring a problem’ for us to discuss and resolve. Staff stimulation and control is always a concern for salon owners.,” Monique continued.

Honour the New Year resolutions we assume you made and use this opportunity to make 2019 the year you catapult your business.
