Due to the need for discretion during the early planning stages, Vicki requested that we wait on posting her first few weeks of blog posts until now. Vicki wrote this one on April 1. Don't worry; we'll be caught up to the present day soon!--NAILS Eds.
Giving notice went extremely well for all of us, including our salon owner, Charlene. She was a bit shocked but the four of us spent a good hour discussing it, and, with a few follow up calls the next day when the dust settled, we figured it was a good thing for all of us. She asked Kim to stay an extra week, and I decided I would as well. We are not telling our salon-mates until we are ready to move our things.
This gives us two weeks to figure out the best way to tell them and assist in finding a booth renter, which helps the salon. So e-mails went out, Natalie called the school she went to to see if anyone was ready to graduate and interested in gaining experience doing the group-coupons with her.
We will officially move our nail stuff out of the old salon and into the new one Sunday, April 15.
