Astonishing Statistics...

Now is the perfect time to make your Tammy Taylor
New Year Resolution!

I know it is 2 months past New Year's, but how many of your 2 month old resolutions did you keep?

So: Let's just forget about them and start FRESH!
Now why should you start fresh and think this time you will be able to do it?
Well, because you probably didn't know the way I am going to teach you.

I am going to teach you how to get a 10x bigger advantage of keeping those resolutions. I have been doing this for years, even before I learned about the amazing statistics behind it.

  • This time, I know you will be able to keep your resolutions.
A lot of people set Resolutions that are wishes not goals, so we are going to start referring to our Resolutions as goals.

The difference between a goal and a wish is a wish is a goal without any energy behind it.

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%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I read this I was floored: How could something so simple make such a HUGE difference? So, I had to share this with you. So you can do it too.

Now, get out your pen & paper right now, and write this down:
  • I am going to write down all of my Resolutions (goals), and put them somewhere I can read them every day.
  • If you want a little extra motivation you can always give a copy to a friend, who encourages you and never puts you down; and tell them these are my Resolutions (goals); I wanted to share them with you, so in 12 months we will go over them and see how I did.
Here are a few ideas for your NEW RESOLUTIONS (GOALS). We are going to start out with 2 EASY RESOLUTIONS (GOALS); then 2 more that are a little harder; then 2 more that are hard.

Here are some ideas you can think about in case you do not have any RESOLUTIONS (GOALS) in mind; this will get your creativity going.


  • Easy
    # 1: I will clean my manicure table and disinfect every night before I leave the Salon. (This will make it nicer for you in the morning, when you start your first client.)

  • Easy
    # 2:
    I will buff my own nails and put a fresh coat of polish on every night, before I leave the Salon (so I can be my own best advertisement).
  • Medium
    # 1:
    I will be 15 minutes early to work before my first client (this will help you be happier and more relaxed when you start your day).

  • Medium
    # 2:
    I will offer each one of my client’s coffee, tea or water; before I start their service (you will be amazed how the little things make such a huge difference in client loyalty).
HARD RESOLUTIONS (GOALS) LAST (this way you build your confidence first with the easier ones then move yourself up)
  • Hard
    # 1:
    I will pass out 10 business cards or flyers every week, and run a little promotion (this will get you about 5-10 new clients a month).

  • Hard
    # 2:
    I will not turn away clients, even if I am a little inconvenienced (remember, if you do not do them, the Nail Tech down the street will).

Now that you have just finished writing down your NEW RESOLUTIONS (GOALS), you have increased your odds of achieving them by ten times, 1000%.

Have a Great Nail Day, With love,
Tammy Taylor

You can e-mail me your NEW RESOLUTIONS (GOALS) and I will save them for you, and in 12 months you can e-mail me and let me know about your great achievements, and we can celebrate together.
