Featured Women In Business-Believe Beauty Lounge

Women In Business-Introducing Believe Beauty Lounge

1) Introduce Yourself

Lisa Koebbe Bevan, Owner of  Believe Beauty Lounge and Master Hair-cutter & Master Board Certified Hair Colorist. Licensed 32 years and Owner 9 years.

2) What inspired you to start your business?

My inspiration was that after over 20 years knowing my former employer and mentor, I as asked to leave upon refusing to sign an unreasonable non-compete agreement. Clients felt that I should have an opportunity to own my own salon and offered to lend me funds to do so. So it was more necessity and opportunity presented than inspiration...that came after this mind blowing experience.

3) What are some obstacles you faced along the way?

Obstacles that I found (and continue to find) most challenging are staffing...finding passionate, agreeable and teachable employees.

4) What are some things that helped to succeed?

As far as my present staff supports and respects me, which in turn allows me to produce at my optimum.

5) How has being an entrepreneur changed your outlook in your life?

Being an entrepreneur hasn't changed my outlook on life, per say, but I liked the ability to have the control to create the feeling in my space and take care of guests properly and professionally (and make my own schedule)

6) What advice would you share to any female entrepreneur about starting her own business?

Advice...Love what you do and treat each client like it is the first time they are a guest in your space. There are innumerable places that the public can choose, over you, to get their services, so...don't get cocky. Remember, you are not the only one. Little things mean a lot. Listen and Truly Care.
