As long as the rent is reasonable it is always best to be your own boss and to work as self employed in the salon .. no mobile ... full time self employed.hi,
i need some advice, im at a dilemma.
do i work for a salon offering to pay me £5.93 per hour,(materials provided) when i have clients booked in? or go self employed and pay a set rent and go mobile aswell?
what would work out the most cost effective?
This is my dream for 2011 Helkat, glad to hear you enjoy it :green:I ran into a similar situation when I finished school. I thought it would be good to get some experience in a salon, but when I went to meet the owner she wanted someone with a year of experience (which I obviously didn't have). So I decided to go it alone and it was the best move I ever made. I have a steady clientele and have a fully licensed home based spa I am my own boss, can spend more time with my family and can pick my own hours.. is the BEST!:lol:
Hey Geeg, just curious - what's your reason for advising against mobile - is it the time taken travelling? What are your thought's on home salons?As long as the rent is reasonable it is always best to be your own boss and to work as self employed in the salon .. no mobile ... full time self employed.
My goodness, if you can do home service this is the BEST. Low overheads and make a beautiful salon expperience in your home.Hey Geeg, just curious - what's your reason for advising against mobile - is it the time taken travelling? What are your thought's on home salons?
Yes, it's the donkey work part that really bugs me, the unpacking and packing and travelling and unpacking then packing and so it goes on....My goodness, if you can do home service this is the BEST. Low overheads and make a beautiful salon expperience in your home.
Mobile .. donkey work! All that travelling and packing and unpacking .. clients who mess you about .. the danger of going you know not where or who is behind that door .. not for me .. I remember Susie Lamplugh .. do you?
Great, I recently moved to a house where I have room for something like that. Do you find it works well? Can I be cheeky and ask roughly how much you spent setting it up? Had a look at your website - it looks really nice. xI had a log cabin built at the bottom of my garden early summer, up and running since end of August. I have a cubicle area for spray tanning and the rest is my nails desk and display cabinet etc. I decided to do this rather than rent space, to keep overheads as low as possible.
To be honest some weeks are very quiet (thats when I panic and think i should rent a room in a busy salon...) but determined to keep going. After all, it its going to take time, so gradually adding more services i can offer. l
Did the Minx course early Oct and I adore them doing the crystal pedicure on myself tomorrow so can advertise it for Christmas!
I have done French tipped creations with Minx set in Acrylic which i simply love.
Plus doing semi perm Lash Fx Course in 2weeks.(feeling a little nervous but love lashes and thought it a great addition.)
Its wonderful to read your posts on here lots of great advice and encouragement
