Jon Potter, Owner

Going from construction engineer to salon owner may seem like an unheard of career transition, but for Jon Potter, that’s exactly what happened. After working for 31 years in the construction industry in Kansas, Potter shifted his sights, moved to Colorado with his wife and opened a full-service salon and spa.

“I thought it would be great to try something totally different,” Potter said. As a first-time business owner, he now enjoys interacting with his customers and seeing his ideas come to life through the success of his salon.

While searching for ways to finance his business purchase, Potter discovered Guidant Financial thanks to an online advertisement. Using Guidant’s signature 401(k) rollover service, Potter was able to leverage funds in his retirement account to invest in his new business without paying a tax penalty.

“[The team at Guidant] was very impressive,” Potter stated. “They led me through the entire process.” As a result, he was able to finance his business debt-free.
