About Me

I am Franciscah Kinanu from Meru. I am aged 28 years married to Evans Mose. Together we have 2 sons , Leon 11 years at Mwangaza primary school Nairobi class 5 and Daniel 3 years at New Bridge academy at Obama Estate.
I am born again christian a member of Njiru Full Gospel Churches of Kenya.
I am trained saloonist a profession i have been since 2006. I was trained at Unity college Nairobi.
Business school gives you the education that you need if you want to succeed in building a successful salon business with all the challenges that entails.

A a successful hairdresser, have little or nothing to do with the skills required to build and manage a business.

The day i opened the business my job description changed dramatically to include responsibility for marketing, training, financial control, stock control, budgeting, recruitment, motivating and leading a team, and that's just my start.

My Business

I am currently working in a salon in Obama Estate Nairobi under commission and at times work from the house since i have my regular customers.
My business is so profitable because i work on my customers well and they appreciate.
I keep on adding more each day. I am perfect in my work and have got experience.
My success now is not dependant on doing all the work, but rather how well I can get other people to do the work, that's what I do, I grow people into a team that represents my brand! That can be exciting and rewarding, but it can also be challenging and frustrating. That is all I do.
A happier more loyal team for e means Better profit margin, To work less hours and have more holiday, To be more focused and organized and To have less stress, more growth and general success?
