Tracey Napotnik is the founder and CEO of, a new innovative, interactive, live platform connecting beauty professionals with salon industry trainers. Tracey has spent 28 passionate years in the salon industry, 18 of those as a salon owner. She is always willing to share her professional and personal highs and lows of the business, to help inspire others to not give up, and learn different ways from those who succeeded. In her early years, Tracey worked 80 hours a week, and experienced the stress of barely making payroll at times. She remembers picking up 3 other jobs even after standing behind the chair 15 hours a day, to help cover expenses. There was a time she was without heat in her home to make sure her team was paid and to keep the business going. It was at some of her darkest days that Tracey saw the light. She knew she was not going to give up on her dreams, so she decided to get serious about learning to “run a business” by taking business courses. To grow, evolve and help others, one must never stop learning,” says Tracey. She constantly seeks the advice and lessons of brilliant leaders and motivators. Tracey studied under Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, John Maxwell, Inspiring Champions, and many well-known beauty industry leaders. Coaches, live trainings, listening, and taking action on what she learned, combined with an unmatched determination to help those around her, have brought Tracey to where she is today. The road to personal and professional success is never easy, but it is always worth it. Tracey hopes that by creating a platform with some of the best trainers that it will help inspire, lead, and encourage others seeking ongoing education to never stop growing and learning.
