Evaluating Your Business through Data versus Emotion

Room: Interchange
Speaker: Alexandra Yanez & Robbin Julien

With more than 130+ locations, Lifetime Fitness is one of the largest full-service salon and spa operators in North America. We function as owners and consultants in order to help local leadership drive a consistent experience while growing and scaling their salon and spa business. Over time, we have identified a roadmap for growing and building a team.

In our session, we will share:

  • Post pandemic KPIs and reporting we use to objectively identify the state of each location
  • Success factors we use to coach, grow and scale
  • A roadmap for success in growing and building a team, with a few real-life examples and results
  • How we have used all of this to help (external) owners and operators value their business with facts and feelings

All Your Accounting Questions Answered

Room: Lookout
Speaker: April McDaniel, CPA, CRSP

Accounting is complicated at best, and it’s critical to have a knowledgeable source who is tracking the quickly shifting rules and regulations, not only giving you up-to-date advice, but signaling the warning signs about potential tax code changes ahead. Kopse Otte & Associates is an accounting firm that specializes in the salon and spa industry, and April McDaniel will lead a robust Q&A session to answer your burning tax-related questions.
