Your story is very inspiring. My wife and I are looking to start a nail salon. I presume the very first step is to find and secure a location. Did you have to start paying rent right away or were you able to negotiate the first few months free to allow you time to get up and running?
I am so glad my story was inspiring to you. Congratulations to you and your wife on your decision to start a nail salon. Finding the location for your salon is key. As far as the rent, we did not have to begin paying immediately. The landlord offered a special for a month free, and to get started we only needed a deposit. During our search we did find a number of vendors who were willing to work out a deal. After weighing all the options we settled on our current location.
I wish you and your wife the best on your salon.
