Dawn Carter

Salon Coach / Leadership Trainer

Beauty starts from within, and I'm honored that the professional beauty industry provides a platform to celebrate inner beauty by making people feel beautiful. We work in an industry where you can build your life by design, and I love being part of that journey with salon owners and service providers.

I used to struggle leading my team, but thanks to The Summit, I learned about systems and indicators to authentically and consistently provide a path for growth. Bringing shareholders into my company has been my proudest accomplishment, and I'm happy to have taught them to be influential leaders who will continue the legacy.

Connection is an essential part of our lives. It helps us to feel a sense of belonging and togetherness with others. It allows us to share our experiences, which leads to personal growth and a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us. In our fast-paced and technology-driven world, it can be easy to forget the importance of human connection. With the support of Summit's happiness project, I love coaching owners and service providers to find their work/life harmony. My true passion is helping develop connected leaders within the salons that I serve. I'm truly honored to work for a company that changes people's lives daily.

I've been a salon owner since 1997, and a Summit coach since 2011, recently joining the leadership division and enjoying our culture of consistent growth. On a personal note, I love to see new places and enjoy spending time with my best friend, my husband.
