What Goes Around Comes Around!
I have never struggled for clients and have been lucky enough not to have to advertise, as all my new business comes from recommendations from existing happy clients. The last few months have become tough. Some long standing clients have moved out of the area or their financial circumstances have changed.
My husband and I always use ‘The Secret’ ideas in our lives, but I hadn’t listened to the CDs before. My husband (Stuart) got the CDs out for me to put in my car to listen to on my way to work last week. I listened intently that Thursday morning and loved what I heard! I felt like I was starting my day on a totally different frequency to the day before.
By the time I reached my salon, I had a text message from an old friend’s sister who is now a therapist, interested in renting the therapy room I have available.
By the following Monday afternoon I had received a call out of the blue from a nail technician friend who I had not spoken to for 12 months. When I had been on maternity leave in 2011, I had referred all my clients to her as I knew she had the same high standards as me and was a lovely girl to boot! She had been offered a new exciting career opportunity and was ringing to see if she could recommend all her regular clients as she was completely giving up the nail business.
I had tears in my eyes as I rang my husband to tell him the good news!
My mantra I had been repeating over and over in my head since Thursday morning was: ‘I would like more clients and someone to rent the room, I would like more clients and someone to rent the room’!
