So, this post is about two weeks late. It should have been done over two weeks ago, but that didn't happen. I've become absolutely horrible at multitasking, and because of that it has now become the topic of this delayed post.
This has to the hardest part of owning a business. There's always something that needs to be done. Buying products, scheduling appointments, working on clients, cleaning, keeping up with social media accounts, answering the phone, paying bills, keeping your appointment book full, and all that other stuff that comes with it. I don't see how some of you all with employees do it because that's a whole other deal in itself.
I used to pride myself on being able to do several things in a short amount of time or even simultaneously. Oh the days of that are long gone. I can't even remember who my first client of the day is by the end if the day without looking at my book. That's a shame. I thank my lucky stars that I am able to stay as busy as I do but have recently welcomed last minute appointment changes. They're always right on time, just when I need a moment to get my marbles together!
Kudos to all in this industry that have families and other business ventures and are still able to service all of your clients and not look frazzled doing it! I want to be like you when I grow up.
