Well . . . Back-to-School is REALLY not a good time for me in my new business. You know after one has a full year to look back on you can plan for slow – to – nonexistent business. “Yikes” is all I can say right now.
Here I sit in my beautiful room in a lovely salon twiddling my thumbs, so to speak. The hair salon is slow, the nail salon is slow and it is making me CRAZY! I have been known to be a fairly impatient individual (those that know me, stop laughing) and expect BIG things to happen rather sooner than later. I know my business is just 3 months old, but I thought I would be busy – or at least busier – by now.
My encouragers tell me not to be discouraged or disappointed. My intellect tells me it takes time to build a business. I’m a fairly intelligent person so I really do know that to be the case. I am a hard worker and want to be the best at what ever I do. It is really hard for my days to be s-l-o-w. My high energy self has a hard time just waiting. I feel like I have to do “something”.
So . . . any ideas? Any suggestions on what I can do to get me booked? I would love to hear from you on this subject.
On the benefit side of having no appointments is getting my hair done. WhooHoo. However, – this color is . . . well . . I just might should dry it before I make any statements. Right now it’s a little different.
Good news on my Mom. She is improving at a very advanced rate. She is doing so well that she just might be able to go home tomorrow even without home PT. That’s good news. I told her about our Leisure Center here and she tells me that are TWO Senior Centers – very similar – very close to her home in Texas. She said the rate for membership is $25 PER YEAR!!! Holy Smoke! What a deal. They have swimming pools with in-pool fitness classes, trips, etc. etc. etc. I will NOT let up on her till she joins up and give her daily calls on actually GOING. What a pain in the butt I can be!
But see . . . I’m a doer – not a sitter and waiter. Don’t get me wrong. I have appointments scheduled and have been told that my business is doing great for this point in existence. I am just not personally satisfied. Waaa . . . I hate hearing myself. I shall just STOP! I am blessed indeed. Tomorrow (Scarlet) is another day. After all . . . this is just a day in my life!
