Hire, Train and Retain With Chris Appleton

For me, the secret to success was letting go, inviting people in, and letting my team grow. ”

Chris Appleton’s successful career has been based on all the relationships he’s built — not only with his A-list clients, but also the people who work closely with him.

From his early days in the salon to styling celebrities in L.A., Appleton knew that being good at his craft was only one piece of the puzzle. He needed to build a community, so he established strong relationships with people who shared the same values and got excited about the same goals.

In the same way my mentors helped me navigate my career, I want to provide that same guidance for others. Everyone is at a different place in their careers, and I want to do everything I can to set them up for success. ”

Set your team up for success 

Appleton knows that he can’t do everything alone — having the right people by his side has opened up many new opportunities. But having a successful team means setting them up with the right technology and ensuring everyone has the tools to thrive.

As a business owner, you can start setting your team up for success by automating tedious administrative tasks with Square. Gain back valuable time with low-stock alerts on inventory, team performance reports, automated customer communications, multi-location management, and more — all so you can free up your staff’s time and focus on the areas of your business that matter most.

The relationships and teams we create just might be the most beautiful part of what we all do. Mastering team building is as important as any other skill you can develop. ”
