This month, the Advisory Board members share their journeys and words of wisdom for a rewarding career.
Bob Steele Salon – Hair
Despite her last name, Amanda Hair hasn’t always worked in the hair industry. In fact, before her current role with Bob Steele Salon, she was in retail management. “I decided that was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life – I wanted time to focus on my family. It just happened that I was a client at Bob Steel Salon, and they needed someone who could manage the salon location.” She jumped at the chance, quickly rising through the ranks to become co-owner and now CEO.
“Approach every situation with the end in mind. For example, every decision I make for the growth of Bob Steele Salon, I pose this question to myself: “Will I maintain the time needed to be a good wife, mother and leader to the team?’ If the answer is no, I usually pass until I can answer that very same question with a yes.”
It wasn’t just the great opportunity that attracted her, though. “I just really loved the industry.” Hair says, “I loved the people and the core values that we represent at Bob Steele Salon. The people that I work with are truly caring people – probably the nicest people that I have ever met. I’m living my passion.”
