Blown Away

Saturday, November 2nd, 2019

Blown Away was established in August of 2015 and in one short year has become one of the most successful and well known salons in the community. The salon is located in the historic downtown area of Corsicana and attracts clients from all over Navarro County. Daniel Short has worked with Catrina Washburn from day one guiding her on the path to success.

Catrina reached out to the Navarro SBDC for help with accounting, type of business structure, marketing and managing a business. Daniel has made sure that Catrina had the tools she needed to establish a successful salon and grow to employ 7.5 employees in one year. The Navarro College SBDC guided the client through the process of adding partners to the salon and assisting with accounting and marketing. Catrina has utilized her location and a shabby chic decoration theme to appeal to the tastes of the local clientele. It is clear that Blown Away has taken advantage of timing when it comes to the resurgence of downtown Corsicana. Establishing strong roots early should pay dividends for Blown Away in the long run.

Daniel will continue to work with Catrina to make sure that the business stays on track with financial, accounting and marketing advice.
