I’ve got a treat for you today! In this episode, I’m talking with Holly Luby from Thunder Bay, Ontario. (Coolest town name ever.)

Holly is a Rock Your Business alumna, self-proclaimed control freak, and anxious creative. She’s been a stylist for 15 years, an educator for 8, and a business owner since February. 

Yes, she started her salon business during the pandemic, and she’s succeeding! How is that even possible?!

You’ll learn all about it in this episode!


Here’s what else you’ll get: 

  • Holly’s career path with all its twists and turns.

  • Some really fun ex-boyfriend drama stories (you’ll say “WTF?!” when you hear this one!).

  • Our shared nightmarish hair catastrophe story that almost made us quit the hair industry.

  • How Holly sidestepped her intense money fears and invested in Rock Your Business. (I definitely don’t recommend this method, but it makes for a funny story!)

  • How she worked through RYB and opened her business in a pandemic with two small kids at home.

  • The mindset shift that allows you to invest in yourself.

  • Some unexpected, beneficial shifts happening in our industry right now thanks to COVID.

  • How to deal when people don’t believe in you (again, and again).

  • The story of acquiring her salon and aaaaallll the obstacles that came with it.

  • Why obstacles can lead to the most amazing things. Don’t give up!

I am SUPER impressed with all Holly’s been able to accomplish in such a short time AND in the middle of a global crisis that’s had a massive impact on our industry. She’s such an amazing example of determination and perseverance. 

I had such a great time chatting with Holly, and I know you’ll get a lot of out this episode too! For more Holly, follow her on Instagram at @hollyhairstylist and!
