Working a part time job alongside mobile beauty

#1
Hello I need advice!!

I am looking to go mobile but would like a part time job to do as well to make sure I have a secure income (if that makes sense) do you think working Monday to Friday, 1-5 for example would be good so I can do Beauty every morning or even after work?

Does anyone else do a part time job alongside Beauty? If so what hours do you do and does it work for you?

Thanks so much !!

It’s a very good idea, as long as you can find the part time job that won’t want to chop & change your hours all the time. Your beauty clients will need you to be reliable to build up your client base... but yeah, go for it! I used to do it until my beauty demand got too high & I opened my own salon. I worked Tuesday 9-3, Wednesday 9-6 & Thursday 9-6 in retail & I worked Monday, Tuesday evenings, Fridays & most Saturdays in beauty (mobile). It worked for me for 8 years! Hours are long but if you find a part time job you enjoy too & that don’t want loads of overtime from you, you’ll be off to a good start.

That’s good to hear that it worked for you! Ideally I would like to do part time in a salon but they would want me to work the hours I need for mobile!! Might look in to some admin jobs.
Thanks for the reply xx

I used to do a 5 day cleaning job, 6am-1/2pm, nap then work from home 4pm-9pm.

Before that i did mon-sun 8am-11pm(yes you read that right), and did tans 11pm-12pm.

I reduced slowly so eventually cleaning 2 days 2pm-8pm weekends so I did beauty all week and in the mornings.

Was scary at first but the clients come when you have the extra time.

Do whatever makes you happy, it’s what I believe makes everything work out best.

Those hours are perfect I’m looking for something similar but it’s so hard to find perfect hours. What do you do if you don’t mind me asking?x
