Reviews from TBP16

We usually always let our content do the talking. This time, we’re going to let a few attendees from last year’s Team-Based Pay Conference take the mic…

“Team-Based Pay is a cultural system that responds to millennials. They want to be part of something bigger than themselves.”
Tracy Ftacek – Privato Salon – Oswego, IL

“My head is exploding!”
Wendy Gentile – Radiance Advanced Skin & Body Care – The Woodlands, TX

“I have wondered why we do what we do, and why I’m helping build a brand for someone else using TBP. This conference put everything into perspective and has helped me understand that my employers are working very hard to get us all to be a successful salon, and that’s what I’m excited to be a part of. I was an independent contractor before, and now I really value the TBP model. I would love to have others understand the ‘why’ as well. Thank you!”
Christina Segura – Integrity Lash – Pasadena, CA

“I had so many ah-ha! moments. All the speakers were amazing. I can’t wait to be there next year!”
