Welcome! 👋

Decades ago Chris Baran faced the eternal challenge 🧐 of all salon owners: When it’s busy, how do you find the time to train your staff to your high standards? 🥵 And when it’s slow and you can’t afford not to take a chair? 😱 It’s the unsolvable problem. So he got to work solving it. 🤯 Here are the results: associate training ✅ design & finishing training ✅ and educator training ✅ all designed to be learner-driven so salon owners can step back and do their real job: building a successful business 💰 that creates more jobs 💰💰💰

1. The Courses

3. Ok! Now What?

After your purchase you will receive your login credentials by email. Tap the login button at the upper right. Enter your credentials and you should be redirected to your profile page. If not, tap the My Profile button.

4. Your Profile Page

This is your home base. Scroll down to manage your subscriptions, update your payment method, or change your password. Under Registered Courses is a list of everything to which you have access. Tap the name of your course to open it up.

5. The Course Page

Each course looks a little different but they all work the same under the hood. Courses are divided into lessons; each lesson might cover multiple topics. Whether they are shown as a list or as a grid, tap a lesson to get started.

6. The Video Player

Since there is a first time for everybody, we’ll mention that tapping the right-pointing arrow ▶️ will start playing the video. Tapping the two vertical slashes ⏸ will pause the video. If you can’t hear anything, check the volume 🔈🔇 on your device.

7. Progress

DOING is the greater part of LEARNING. Seriously, just by working along with the videos your knowledge retention goes from below 👎 30% (passive watching) to above 👍 75% (active learning).

We love goals ✅. We love celebrating wins 🏆 We love watching that little progress meter fill up 🔴🔴🔴🔴⭕️ When you’re confident that you’ve taken in all in, hit the “Mark Complete” button to tap in another win  🙌

Progress meters advance when you tap “Mark Complete”. We find this is a good way of being accountable to yourself – don’t tap it until you own it 💯!

If there’s a Quiz, you’ll need to complete the Quiz before you can tap the Mark Complete button. And all the Quizzes have to be done before you can mark your Course as complete.

8. Navigation

The fastest way to get around in most courses is the sidebar. On a mobile device, sidebar stuff appears below the main content, or it will be collapsed into a little hamburger menu ☰.
