We’ve talked a lot about leadership and why it’s so critical. As the captain of your salon or spa’s ship, you alone are responsible for leading your team to greatness.

But, what steps or actions are you taking to get there? Do you have set systems and procedures to follow each and every day?

Watch this month’s video…

As business owners we’re often juggling lots of plates at once. You’re running a business, creating an awesome experience for clients, managing your team and any drama, paying the bills, dealing with vendors, running errands, taking care of the books, etc. It’s not hard to see how things can get away from you.

If you feel like you struggle with completing the tasks on your to-do list, we recommend creating a daily task sheet. I’ve found that it helps me make sure that nothing gets overlooked and it’s a check and balance for myself as a leader.

A task sheet is a checklist that you will use to keep track of the things you must complete in your day. There are many different approaches you can take… You may prefer going old school and use an actual sheet of paper and pen. You may use a task template from Excel. Or maybe you use a digital task sheet on your phone and/or computer. Regardless of your personal preference, the key is to implement a task sheet into your daily routine.

If you’re having trouble getting started, we’ve included a sample task sheet that you can use to create your own Daily Procedures.


The example includes a Monday and Saturday list for you to get ideas from. Definitely use these as a guide and create your own. Be sure to include something to celebrate your wins!
