We had a lot of challenges. Not a lot of money so we had to build our own salon from the bays to the reception desk. didn’t know any of the hairdressing suppliers and had no clients as I worked in Wellington. We didn’t know anything about business and had to learn on the way I had been open for a short time and my dad died(he was a good sounding board) I shut the salon for a day and went back to work.
We had a very young family but we made it work. My husband Wayne and I are a great team.
