Free Online Education

Salon Jedi has pledged £100,000 in FREE training to the salon industry with their brand new, the Mindful Salon Source Code course. The course was set to be £297 for salons to attend, but is now completely free for salon owners across the world to help them navigate through the current climate.
The fear is real for many salon owners right now, but the Mindful Salon Source Code enables you to use this downtime to empower your mind rather than focus on fear and scarcity. It's time to focus on your mindset and reconnect with your inner self so you can come out the other side stronger than ever. The training helps you find your Unique Selling Purpose and niche, as well as teachings on how your brain and current programming is linked to creating your success. It gives you a framework of mindfulness for you and your team to work to as part of your core values.
In 2019 Caroline’s own salon had record results in many areas including only 1% sickness and their highest salon takings ever plus:
- Highest Stylist takings of over £6650 in a week
- Highest salon week takings of over £22,809
- Highest salon months takings of over £52,809
Caroline puts results down to the mindset work she has been delivering to the team.
Caroline herself is in John Assaraf’s mastermind group and flies out to San Diego 3 times a year to learn from the mindset master who is a New York Times best selling author, and you may know him from being an expert in the film and book The Secret. We asked Caroline why she was giving away her brand new training for free:
Back in 2009 I was almost closing my salon doors due to the recession, I nearly lost everything. Here I am now having closed my salon doors with hundreds of thousands of other salons across the world. It was mindset that helped me get through the recession and I believe it’s crucial for us all to use our mind wisely to get us through these uncertain times. I want to do what I can to help.
