The Empowering You workshop enhanced their business skills in social media, retail sales and good business practices in an energetic atmosphere. Those ins attendance left with a few new ideas that could be implemented immediately.”

About Salons by JC: In 1997, Jack Griffey and Cecil Miller began their journey to transform the beauty industry one salon suite at a time. Like most young entrepreneurs, they started out with a big idea but had to learn how to start and run a business from scratch. After much perseverance and hard work, one year later, they opened Salons by JC in Dallas, TX in 1998, welcoming beauty and wellness specialists who were ready to break free from the traditional salon model. The company has since moved its headquarters from Dallas to San Antonio, where it continues to grow through franchising. Today, Salons by JC has over 90 locations in 26 states and Canada.  For more information, visit salonsbyjc.com or salonsbyjc.com/franchise
