After a recent emergency situation that I found myself in at the grocery store, I realized that we as beauty biz practitioners are not trained on how to respond to emergency situations.

I want you to be as prepared as you can be and feel confident in handling the situation, because someone could get hurt, have a seizure, or go into a state of medical emergency in your business (or outside your business). It’s important and empowering to know what to do.

You have to be prepared to be able to save someone’s life, and I will give you tips and takeaways about how to respond in an emergency situation in this episode.

    10. Stop and access your surroundings for potential hazards that could cause harm to somebody

“Something Lauren Snow said when she was speaking at one of my live events was that one of the reasons that people get hurt within a facility (or one of the reasons that people sue) is because we don’t take time to access the hazards within our spa.” – Lori Crete
