Tips to Become a Successful Entrepreneur

Becoming an entrepreneur is not difficult, being successful is a different story altogether. Thomas Salzano, a New Jersey based hairstylist, traveler, photographer and blogger, says launching a growth oriented business takes more than investment and hard work.


The key, he says, lies in the following:

  1. Working Smart and Not Just Hard

Only hard work hardly works anymore, says Salzano. Working for 18 hours every day and trying to do everything on your own will only lead to one outcome: an overworked you.

What starts with a full power hardcore unflinching gusto, soon turns into a routine of sleep deprived nights and days filled with exhaustion! The key lies in finding the right people to do the required job. Working smart fetches you better outcome and also keeps you on your feet.

  1. Don’t Be Afraid to Fail

No matter how much we all want to succeed, the fear of failure has killed more dreams than the failure itself. Don’t be afraid to try just because you may fail. Winston Churchill once said, “Success is moving from one failure to another without losing the enthusiasm.”

Sometimes, people don’t think it through while launching a business. From location to niche to audience to demographics, everything needs to be considered. Along with that, you also need to make sure you have the resources to keep things running.

  1. Be Relentless

Your business is your dream, so you need to protect it, nurture it and make it happen. You just can’t afford to let it slip because of any reason. Nothing should come between you and your goals.

Wake up, get ready, and work on your dream. Because if you don’t work on your dream, you’ll be working on someone else’s!

In the end, Thomas Salzano gives the most important tip for success: staying healthy. Healthy body lets you focus better and gives you an edge that most people want.

Cosmetic startups costs

The best bet to start a cosmetic business is to begin online as there are more chances to get customers there.

Costs completely depend on what type of formulation you are going to use. Important parameters that play an important role in this phase are the type of product you are going to make (body wash, fairness cream, emulsion etc.), a number of products at the starting stage, cosmetic formulation  development and production cost, packaging, marketing material and website.

Following are the key start-up costs:

  • Product development-> $3000-$4000 (for a single product)
  • Business Expenses-> around $2000
  • Marketing & Sales-> $500-$1000

Cosmetic regulations

The cosmetic industry is regulated by the Food & Regulation Administration (FDA). Go to its official website and check out all the latest information published by them regarding beauty product businesses.

Product testing

It’s your duty to make sure that the products are safe and effective. For that, there are a number of tests that you should run before launching the product:

  • Microbial testing
  • Stability testing
  • Safety testing

Cosmetic business license

FDA regulates cosmetics under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act (FD&C Act). FDA, itself, does not license cosmetics firms. But, state or local authorities may require licensing or other important documents. So, you have to contact these authorities directly.

Promotion & Marketing

From digital to traditional, there are multiple ways by which you can promote your beauty products.

You can stand in malls or streets and offer samples to passerby and collect reviews from them. It is one of the best ways of mouth-publicity.

Launch a website or promotional blog and place your ads on forums that target your audience.

Use Facebook or other social networks to promote your product. Moreover, while promoting on social media, you can differentiate your audience based on age, location and interests.

Employment Tips For New Hairstylists: Thomas Salzano

Your hairstyling course is done, you got the certification, and you acquired the license too! What’s next, a warm wish for a bright future? Thomas Salzano welcomes all the fresh hairstylists to the real world. Let’s hear it from the man himself:

“I, too, was in the same many years ago. Right where you are today, I had everything I needed to start working, and then it struck me, between capability and credibility, the latter gets precedence.

My Post.jpg

So let me tell you something you’d have heard many times: start interning with popular names, rent a chair at a famous salon and start working, giving a part of the income to the salon as a commission, or start your own salon. The third option sounds amazing, right? The salon management classes you took in your college will only give you a glimpse of what’s coming. The real world is a different story altogether.

Now let me tell you something you need to hear. Starting a salon and getting customers immediately is not easy, but it is possible. You may not get many, but you will get some, talk to them, give them a good experience, make them want to come back, and gradually, you’ll see yourself set in motion.

Have swag, lots of swag, and yet, be gentle, be humble. And no matter how down you feel, suit up and show up. You chose this path; stand by your decision.”

Thomas Salzano writes off saying, “This is a tough profession, there will be hard times. You may be stressed, depressed, but you got to be well dressed.”
