Today we’d like to introduce you to Marilyn Petersen.
Hi Marilyn, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
In 1999, I had been working as a stylist for about twenty years. I had worked for several salons. I came away from each salon with positive as well as negative ideas until I had formed my own plans as to how a salon should be run.
I wanted it to be pretty, clean and modern. I wanted to hire the best, most professional stylists. And I wanted to include a spa to create a full-service, relaxing environment.
Our mission statement became “Comfortable Elegance” and I think we achieved our goal of making our clients feel very pampered in a beautiful space.
In 2011, we moved the salon to a larger 10,000 square foot space. It allowed us to grow and to create an even more elegant atmosphere for the clients as well as the staff.
A couple of years later, my daughter took over the management of the business with fresh ideas but still keeping the original theme intact.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The road has been a very smooth one. Covid was our first bump and I think our management as well as our staff dealt with it with a professionalism that has been typical of them from the beginning.
We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
I think that luck always plays a role in every aspect of life. I have been very lucky to have a business partner in my husband. He and I are a great compliment to each other. I have also been very lucky to have a daughter who is not only interested but loves the business as much as we do.
