Just wondered if anyone else is experiencing a lull in phone calls and bookings? Just starting back at work and was quite busy with bookings and work, but have not had one this week.:sad:

Looking back this time last year was quite quiet.

Wondered if anyone else is finding it quiet - perhaps due to holidays and kids finishing at school?

Last week was REALLY quiet, quite depressing really ! I actually had to ring one of my regulars and offer her a discount to get her in as I was sooooooo bored !!!

This week is much better am booked up tomorrow and friday so hopefully it will continue.

I think the weather has a lot to do with things, I am always busier when its nice and hot.

True have to agree since the weather has been bad the phones has stopped ringing and emails stopped coming through. Cheer up weather we need some cash!!

last week was dead for me, this week is a better.

However, it is all relative isn't it, as even though I think I am busy as I work alone, for a salon with two or three therapists it would be dead!

This week is mentally busy. Next week is looking a bit quieter which is quite nice as the kids are off for the first week of their summer hols so we might get to go out a couple of days :D

Buisness wise Quiet yes.. but only because the kids are on holidays and i planned it that way, NO WAY can i focus on the job at hand with kids around! and i always say to my clients if you bring kids to your appointment then you will only get 50% of my attention as the other 50% is making sure your child is safe in my environment! LOVE KIDS but not in my studio please!

This week I've been fully booked. I even worked an extra hour today & yesterday. There are a lot of weddings going on near me though so I guess it all depends on what's happening in your local area. I've had 3 people in today all going to the same wedding tomorrow plus the bride & one of her friends in yesterday, kept me pretty busy.
