The PPP Lounge

We love sharing projects and initiatives coming from our members, it’s important to do things that help our community, especially these days. So we were glad when we heard about The PPP Lounge; we think you may need it.

The Picture Perfect Package was an idea thought up by two salon owners, our HCL Premium member, Naomi Brooks of The Hair Sanctuary and Anika Ahmed of Enhance by Anika. A project created to help women in service based industries grow their business. The service includes a branding photoshoot as well as mindset and business coaching. This would normally take place in a studio with a 4 hour photoshoot followed by the coaching session.

Due to current circumstances, the PPP had to adapt and is now launched as The PPP Lounge. It’s a private Facebook group where Naomi and Anika deliver all the content of the package minus the photoshoot online; to support women  in business and aspiring entrepreneurs to level up their business. The topics covered are things such as goal setting, mindset, social media, marketing and some sessions held by specialist experts. The group is a paid monthly membership for just £12.99 that can be cancelled anytime, so no stress about money!

‘We want to show other women that whilst our physical work has been put on pause, we can pivot and create ways to connect with and gain new clients online. Not only that but to use this time to re-evaluate business so far and position yourself for the biggest comeback.We aim to inject positivity into their lives, inspire and motivate them to try new things, step out of their comfort zone and think outside of the box’ they say. That’s great, ladies!
