What others say...

"WOW!!! ✨ I can't believe how much I've learnt!!! ✨I read through my notes on the plane to refresh my memory & get ready tackle some of the challenges I need to work through for my salon.... A very heartfelt thank you to Kristy McKenzie for bringing together so many gorgeous people and hosting such an AMAZING event!!!"

Mia Devries, The Fox & The Hair

"Wow! The room was buzzing, the love was shared and the ideas were flowing. So many ideas to take back to our businesses and make a difference to,the lives we touch every day. Although things can be tough at times as a business owner, I am so grateful for the opportunity I have created for myself. Have gratitude. I have so much to do there and am excited by the abundance and possibilities it will create. Thank you for sharing your stories in a safe zone."

Kirsten Harris, Blow Dry Bar

"My main concern with my business was that it was taking over my life. I really did not have a work life balance. My goal was always to have a business, not be on the floor servicing clients. When I saw the last summit advertised, I jumped straight in and booked my ticket. I can't tell you how much the summit event changed my life. I now don't feel so alone in this business. I've got connections and I have met so many wonderful people! I'm excited about figuring out what my new role as a business owner is going to be"

Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones Hair Company

"My mind is racing with ideas, contemplating what I need to get sorted and the decisions I am going to make. The honesty and openness I was completely in awe of. I was so nervous about coming had deemed myself as not really worthy to attend. I can't wait to start making steps ahead...This is probably the most positive & confident I have felt in at least 12 months from simply being surrounded by such fantastic people. "
