08 Dec My Garnish Framily
Have you ever considered just how much time you spend with your coworkers? Most of us probably spend more time with the people we work with than the people we live with. This means that having a team that you enjoy can make all the difference in the world in regards to your daily life and happiness.
I consider myself lucky to have a team that I laugh with every single day. Once a year, we have a day where we leave the salon together and go to some event (typically a concert) and just enjoy one another’s company. The impact of the fact that we can all have fun together outside of work has never escaped me, but recently I had an opportunity to appreciate my team in a whole new light.
You may or may not know that Garnish has a behind the scenes numbers queen aka CFO named Sahar. Sahar keeps our lives together in the studio by doing so many things for us, and at the beginning of November she blessed us by inviting the entire team AND our families to her house for an early Thanksgiving. She and her mom cooked us the most delicious traditional Afghan food, and we spent the evening just enjoying hanging out together.
It really struck me during that evening just how special it is that we can all get together, children and significant others included, and have just a really great time. Creating a positive team environment was always a priority to me as I built my own business, and I’ve been very intentional about choosing to surround myself with people who share my mindset.
Having a team that enjoys spending time together is really just the surface of how special our Garnish Framily really is. Over the past three years, each person that has joined the team has seamlessly become a part of the environment of Garnish, and has each brought their own unique self to the unified goal and purpose that we all share—helping women find the beauty in themselves and growing self-confidence and self-love through the art of hair.
We work hard together, we take care of one another, and because we have a healthy team atmosphere, we can serve the women who come into our studio with positive energy and good vibes all around. I knew I wanted Garnish to stand out from other salons not just because of the level of service, but the feels you would get when you walk in the door. Having a strong team and purposeful positive energy is something that can’t be faked, and I am so proud that through my team, I have been able to achieve the goal of offering that environment to our guests.
Our hope is always that when you walk in the door of Garnish you immediately know that you are surrounded by a team that will work together to meet your needs, and that you are welcome as a part of the Garnish Framily.
And because being thankful doesn’t start and end at Thanksgiving, I want to take a moment to share my appreciation for my team for coming together and being the kind of “coworkers” who can share a Thanksgiving meal together with love and laughter, then wake up the next day and come into the studio ready to share the same positive energy and good vibes with all of you.
