Working Healthy

Does This Make Me Look Fat?

We want to inspire you to think about yourself, your health, and feeling good. We want you to go on a diet and start exercising . . . with us.

NAILS Magazine’s mission is and always has been to bring advanced education to nail professionals. When the NAILS team re-crafted our mission statement two years ago I shared it with you on this page (there’s all the basic stuff about providing information and education, being experts in our field, yada yada yada . . .). But beyond anticipating and meeting your educational and informational needs, we felt strongly that it was our role to inspire you. One of the ways we do this is by presenting the stories and images from nail professionals who do outstanding things. We also try to inspire you by writing in a way that shows respect and enthusiasm for the nail profession. We think (and hope) we inspire you to do your best work when you see our covers and the handiwork of one of your peers (we know you scrutinize the nails on the cover). But this month, I think we’ve taken a big step, right into your personal life, in our effort to inspire you to do something great for yourself.

We want to inspire you to think about yourself, your health, and feeling good. We want you to go on a diet and start exercising . . . with us.

There’s a big article on page 72 giving you all the ins and outs of our program. But I also wanted to take some room on this page to tell you why on earth we thought a diet and exercise program made sense as editorial material for a professional magazine for nail technicians. The answer is, it makes sense as material for anyone. But our business is the nail industry, helping inspire the professionals in this industry to be the best they can be.

We’re not promoting a new diet, we won’t be asking you to buy a diet book or exercise video, and we’re not promising you’ll lose weight while you sleep. We’re offering a helping hand and we’re asking for yours as well. Read about our program on page 72 and join us. Sign the pledge, send us your stories, and keep us posted on your progress. As I sit here with my stomach grumbling I know that as much as it’s our mission to inspire you, you inspire us more than you know.
