This time of year, everyone seems a little more frazzled than usual. There is so much that needs to be done and so little time to do it.
No matter what holiday you do or do not celebrate, there are still things going on around you — extra social commitments, additional charity work, and inevitably more hours at the salon. One thing that should not be overlooked is client appreciation. Take the time, in spite of your crazy schedule, to let them know how much it means to you that they have come to you throughout the year.
This does not always have to be a gift you’ve purchased. It can be in the form of a coupon, maybe for an artistic upgrade or extended massage. It could be poetry, a heartfelt personal note, or any number of things. The key is for the appreciation to come from your heart. During a service, just take a few moments to highlight some good times you have had at the nail table together throughout the year and thank them for taking the time to be with you.
Appreciation doesn’t cost you anything except time, and in this day and age, time is the most priceless gift you can give. On that note, thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by to read my blogs. I write in an effort to pay it forward for the help I received over the years from fellow industry professionals. I hope you find the blogs informative, educational, and fun. They are written with you in mind!
Big hugs and respect with all my love.
