Meet the Absa Small Business Friday featured Small Business of the week – Beaumont Stylists CC T/A Essence Hair and Beauty.
Jean Beaumont is the owner of Essence hair and beauty salon. She has a team of five individuals who help her to take care of their customer’s hair and beauty needs. Jean started her business after working for an international hair and cosmetic company. She used her knowledge as a technician to earn a living and to build her business by sharing her knowledge with her team.
She loves to work with people in a creative way and experiences great job satisfaction by making people feel good about themselves. Furthermore, she enjoys training and educating her team.
Her biggest lesson in business has been to lead from behind. Team members that have grown with the business are more likely to stay loyal.
During tough economic times, Jean Beaumont is thankful to have stable financial institutions, like Absa, to help support her and other small businesses through them.
By supporting small businesses, individuals help to bring down the unemployment rate and small business owners have the capacity to give employees on-the-job training to build a brighter future for everyone.
