Blueprint of a First Year

Ohh Emm Gee, We’ll be on TV!

by NAILS Magazine | April 30, 2012

After a rather unpleasant series of events including freezing cold and rainy weather on Pink Friday {All that Pink Champagne with no one to drink it} and nowhere near as many guests as I forecasted for the month {I built it, so where are they?}, I received a phone call from the producer of a local morning show here in Chicago.

We were asked to participate in the show's upcoming Wedding Segment featuring trends and styles for nails this wedding season. We start filming the two-and-a-half to three minute segment here at Posh’aah Nail Spa this Thursday.

BUT WAIT, there’s more! We were also invited to perform pedicures for the two hosts of the morning show during the LIVE taping on May 9. I’m so excited that I don’t know what to do with myself. We’re planning to post a photo-journal of the filming on our blog, plus post up to the minute Twitter feeds.

We are also courting another local TV show producer in the hopes that she will also choose to feature Posh’aah Nail Spa as a hot local place to visit in the city. She has been to Posh’aah twice and I forwarded some information and pictures to her for consideration. Hopefully, she comes back with a “we absolutely love Posh’aah and must feature this location!”

Our Google Offer will also run starting May 1. My hope is that many people will think a Shellac No-Chip Manicure for only $16.50 is just too great a deal to pass up. I chose to work with Google Offers because it’s a newer program and I was able to set a number limit to how many offers were available. I’ve heard so many horror stories of nail professionals and salons being unable to meet the demand after posting mani-pedi deals. With this in mind, I opted for a Shellac No-Chip mani offer since it takes a lot less time to complete than a mani-pedi combo.

Well, Posh’aah is fast-approaching her two-month birthday, and I feel like I’ve aged 12 years. This journey is no joke, but no matter how many difficulties I face {FYI: there have been MANY} when I turn my key in the storefront door, I can’t help but smile when I see her. I love my Posh’aah. She was definitely worth the wait.
