S1E5 - Story Time! From Our Guest's POV: Brittany was the "Crazy Client!"

Brittany + Betsy live by this line while in service with a guest: "It's not the Brittany or Betsy show". What does this actually mean?  In this week's episode, Brittany shares her experience as a guest when she visited a new nail salon that was pretty unbelievable! (Seriously - this one takes the cake!) Other guests in the nail salon likely assumed she was being "difficult", or "crazy", and while Brittany was able to see both sides, we ultimately experienced some fantastic reminders and ah-hah moments that can begin to feel foreign to us the longer we work behind the chair. We felt compelled to share some of her takeaways from the client's POV.  Let's all learn from her experience, and identify how we can ensure we are being transparent, open, honest and leading with integrity during all of the peaks and valleys of our guest's experience!

S1E3 - Prebook Like Your Life Depends On It!

Your demand building begins with the power of pre-booking! Many industry experts have become vocal in their opinion that pre-booking "caps you" and your sales. Pre-booking is not a trap - it is a one way ticket to continued growth and freedom. Let's learn to crawl before we walk; pre-booking creates the foundations for us to customize our client base and ultimately decide what kind of income we want, who we want to service and how we want to spend our time behind the chair. And, when we are board or want to make more income, we create a new strategy with our guests when re-booking them! In this weeks episode, learn how to pre-book, why pre-booking is essential to building a fan base, and why pre-booking is beneficial for not only you, but your guest as well. Pre-booking can build trust with your guest by clearly defining the relationship + more! What is your current pre-booking rate? Are you tracking your pre-booking results?
