Happy New Year! With love, Tammy Taylor
5 of the Top New Year’s Resolutions That Make the Lists Every Year….
  • Enjoy More Quality Time with Family & Friends
  • Stick to a Budget
  • Debt Reduction
  • Get Organized
  • Lose Weight and Get in Better Physical Shape

Would you like a 10x bigger advantage keeping your New Year’s Resolutions in 2010?

Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc.  - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981 USA Today reported on a study a couple of years ago.
First, researchers selected people who made New Year's resolutions. Then they divided these people into 2 categories:

    • Those who made New Year's resolutions and wrote them down, and…
    • Those who made New Year's resolutions but Did Not write them down.

Twelve months later, the researchers followed up on the people who participated in this study.

Of the group of people who made resolutions but DID NOT WRITE THEM DOWN,

    • Only 4% actually followed through on their resolutions.

HOWEVER, among the group of people who made resolutions (goals) and DID WRITE THEM DOWN…
THIS IS an INCREASE of OVER 1100%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know this may sound too easy, but let’s put it to the test; write down your Resolutions (Goals) today, and make a copy; or email them to me, and in 2011 we will see how many of our Resolutions we were able to keep.

Remember, set realistic resolutions (goals) and make baby steps; if you get off track, don't quit, just start again where you left off.

My New Year’s Resolution is going to be:
Keep everything in perspective and when things start going too fast, I will not forget what is really important;
My Faith, My Family, and My Friends

“Happy New Year 2010”
with love,

1 Corinthians 10:13
But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it.

Clients Fade Away......

Do Not Let Your Holiday Clients Just... Fade Away......

“Now is the time to keep track of every single client who comes into your business.

...While people are out and about, getting Salon services and shopping, you need to build your data base; Turn your Holiday clients into year-round clients.
It is necessary to build your Data-Base, so you can keep your name in front of your clients all year long.
... Do not be embarrassed to keep in touch with clients, even after the Holidays; You want to send out email specials every month, and birthday e-cards to every client, even if they have not been back to your business for awhile.
... The key in business is: Even if clients might not need your services or products right now, when they do, they will remember you, and not go to anyone else.

Tammy Taylor

Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc. - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981TaylorUse the “Internet” to keep in touch with your clients; it is very inexpensive and efficient. You can use your Blackberry or your computer to do this; E-mails, Facebook, Twitter…….

Remember, Keep it Simple:

All you need is a little bit of your time; creativity; and your clients e-mail addresses.

Once a Month:

Send out a simple 1/2 page email, containing:

  • A Greeting = 1 sentence
  • Information that is interesting about your products or services, that can help your clients = 2-3 sentences
  • A Special Offer = 1 sentence
  • Always add a Referral Incentive = 1 sentence
  • All of your contact information; including your physical address, with zip code and phone # with area code.

No matter what your product is, you are ultimately in the education business. Your customers need to be constantly educated about the many advantages of doing business with you, trained to use your products more effectively, and taught how to make never-ending improvement in their lives.
Author: Robert G Allen

Do Not Be Embarrassed!
I know it is hard to write something and then let everyone read it.

But, the main thing is; do not WORRY about PERFECTION, just be yourself.

In your email focus only on "Helping" your clients; Talking to your clients, just like you talk to your friends.

Start “Building” Your Data Base and "Writing" your January 1st E-mail Today, so you can get Your Holiday Clients Coming Back in January and February and in March.........

With love,
Tammy Taylor

It is very common to think; how we act determines our Success, but I believe
"It is how we REACT that determines our Success."Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc. - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981Taylor

A good business person needs the valuable experiences, of going through tough economic times to become better, and...
During these times is when we need to keep our minds open to new ideas and be willing to learn.

With every Challenge, Comes a Chance to Learn how to become more Successful, and how we REACT to Challenges will determine Our Success:

With Every Challenge -
There comes a Chance to Cultivate our Creativity

With Every Bad Day -

There comes a Chance to Learn How to Stay More Positive

With Every Tough Situation -
There comes a Chance for Building our Wisdom

With Every Disappointment -
There comes a Chance to Develop our Compassion and Understanding

With Every Bad Decision -
There comes a Valuable Learning Experience

"Tough Times Give Us the Opportunity To "Be Better" Than We Could Ever Imagine"; when times are good, it is easy to just go with the flow, and, when there is no pressure there is no motivation.

Here is a list of 5 U.S. Companies that have been in business over 50 YEARS and they all started small, by individuals like you and me, who had a dream. I guarantee each one of these companies have been through a lot of tough times over the last 50 years, but what they have learned from surviving in the tough times, has kept their businesses growing and thriving.

Revlon Cosmetics 1932
Estee Lauder Cosmetics 1946
Nordstrom Department Stores 1901
Hershey Candy Company 1894
Johnsons and Johnsons Personal Care 1886

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

BEST, Recession Proof Businesses...

"The Beauty Business has been proven to be, one of the BEST, Recession Proof Businesses"

National data on the Salon industry, shows there are some 46,000 Nail Salons within the USA's beauty business – a $16 billion industry.Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc. - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981

You will see the Beauty Industry in the TOP 10 Recession Proof Industries in almost every single report you read.
And, it is listed in the Top 25 Careers to pursue, in a recession.


When I started in the Nail Business 28 years ago it was during a rough economy, and I have been through at least 3 economic down cycles: so I have a lot of experience to pull from.
And, through my 28 years of experiences, I have observed many similarities in the habit patterns of our clients during these economic times:

  • When the economy is not so good, a lot of women go back to work so they can have extra money to do things they like to do, like get their nails done.

  • Women are more careful about what they spend their money on, but they still like to feel pretty, and Nails are a good investment; they get undivided attention for an hour with their favorite Therapist (their Nail Tech) and their hands and feet look beautiful for 2 whole weeks.

I get e-mails and calls every single day, from women looking for Tammy Taylor Nail Technicians that do Pink & White Sculptured fingernails and toenails, Prizma Nails, Spa Manicures and Pedicures: These requests have not slowed down at all; now we are even getting more requests than ever.

We are so lucky to have such a Great Career; a Career that is FUN, REWARDING and DEPENDABLE.
It would be hard to find a better business to be in right now.

And, what is really wonderful; we make our own pay check, and that is definitely job security.

The beauty business is not easy, but it is ALWAYS DEPENDABLE, and we will get out of it what we are willing to put into it.

If we are working 5 to 6 days a week, we are putting MORE ENERGY into our business, and we will reap BIGGER PROFITS.

If we are only working 2-3 days a week, we ARE "NOT" putting ENERGY into our business, and this will probably mean VERY LITTLE PROFIT.

But, if we can just put more energy into our business right now, while the economy is slow, it can be a blessing; because we will learn how to be better, than we have ever been; and when the economy turns around (WHICH IT WILL!), we will be swamped with more business then we know what to do with.

And, the main thing to remember: "Women Love their Nails, they Love their Nail Techs, and they will always find a way to get their nails done."

With love,

Tammy Taylor

The blessing of the LORD makes [one] rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
