Things are looking up! I have a space that I looked at down the street from the first space I was interested in. It's currently a tattoo shop so it has all the plumbing I need exactly where it should be. Which would mean I wouldn't have to spend a lot to get it renovated. This area is going through a renaissance period and tons of artists and sculptors are moving in, and I would be the only salon on the street. The plans for the new art district can be found at www.broadavearts.com. The realtor and I are supposed to be meeting next week to talk specifics. In the meantime, there are four more spaces available on the street that would be suitable to my needs.
Oh, I should probably mention that I have not worked with my broker for the last three weeks because the last couple of spaces he sent me were not in the best areas. I have specific areas I want to be in, and he was one of the only people that actually found what I was looking for, but when they didn't work out for whatever reason he just started throwing anything my way. I have suspicions about why some didn't work out, but the only way I'll know for sure is by calling them myself.
One more thing on the to-do list while my space is waiting on me to find it, is figure out the service menu. I'm wondering if I could make more money by adding services to the salon. Maybe a spa, instead of just a nail salon. I'm not sure, but it's a thought since I'm not stuck on any one space right now.

Three weeks open, and things are pretty normal. My clients can't believe the place looks like it does, especially since the last place was pretty colorless. I'm happy and relieved now that I'm out of the
Summer has officially started for us here in Virginia. Schools are out and, as many others, I made the list for "worst end-of-the-year moms" :)Between tardies, gluing junk to homework, and reading baby books to save
