In this episode, which is our first video interview,  we chatted with Jenna Bowden of Crown Extension Studio, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Jenna survived not 1, not 2, but 3 walkouts in 4 years and finally speaks up about the trauma salon walkouts cause and why she needed to recover from it to move on to be the person she is today!  Strong, intentional and running her business her way.  She reveals the lies, the lessons and the resources she learned after each of her walkouts, her lowest moment, and how the pandemic gave her the time to fully recover from the trauma her walkouts caused.

Now, Jenna is a true salon owner and no longer works behind the chair.  She is running her numbers and her business. She is a competitive bodybuilder, has trained a strong respectful salon team and is designing her dream salon. You too can survive!
