If you are not earning over $300,000
annually and you don't have
employees successfully running your
store after 18 months - 24 months,
you are doing something wrong!
I can save
money doing it myself - A smart
business person knows time can be
your worst enemy. Our founder opened
his first store himself and wish he
didn't have to. Money was lost in
mistakes and in "loss of sales" from
the extra time it took to get open.
I can save money having a store
owner help me - Time is your
biggest enemy in this case too. The
reason why we founded Beauty Supply
Institute and sold our stores was
because we tried helping others open
stores while we ran our own. We
weren't doing our clients justice.
It took much longer than needed
because we couldn't focus completely
on the client. We had our baby to
run too. This is what you will find
trying to work with current store
owners. We give detailed attention
to your baby and get you opened as
soon as possible so you can begin
making sales. Our service pays for
itself many times over.
Costs $200,000 to open –
Actually, we have gotten stores
opened completed and stocked with as
little as $30,000. You must contact
us to see what your needs will be.
Asians don’t do business with
Blacks – Like many other
groups, Asians are culturally
different from Blacks. If Blacks
understand the culture of doing
business with them, you are sure to
gain access to whatever you need.
It’s hard to get hair accounts
– Requirements vary from distributor
to distributor. Hair accounts are
not that difficult to obtain.
Asians dominate the industry
– Actually, Africans and Arabs are
key players in the industry too
depending on where you are located.
This only proves that race doesn’t
determine success, it is how
competitive you can be.
Economy is too bad –
OTC Magazine stated “The ethnic
beauty supply industry grew by 12%
in 2008, during the height of our
economic recession.” This industry
is not only about cosmetics but also
about hygiene, which is necessary to
obtain jobs or remain presentable.
Without hair accounts, I will
fail – Sally’s, one of the
country’s largest beauty retailer,
generates billions selling mostly
hair care and skin care items. It
took almost 8 months for our first
location to obtain wig accounts, yet
we generated profits monthly selling
If you are within 3 miles of
another store you can't get products
- Unfortunately, many are led to
believe they cannot get any
products if they are within a 3-mile
(or whatever mile) radius. However,
this is not true. The radius clause
applies to some "hair
accounts" only. You can be sitting
right next to another store and get
all of the same chemical, equipment
and accessory products as your
competitor. Specialize in having
hair the competing store doesn't
have and you can make money! If
there are accounts you would like to
have but can't get, give us a call.
We can assist.
Our services and training equips
people how to be the best retailer
of beauty products. It doesn't focus
on what type of products so the
training is pretty universal in that
regard. The only specific nature of
our training is that it focuses on
those who own or would like to own
an actual brick and mortar business.
If you are trying to operate solely
online, our training will be perhaps
15% beneficial. If you plan to open
a physical location, our training &
consulting will be 110% beneficial.
