Dreaming and Planning....

Dreaming and Planning is very important to building a successful career.

However...
Thinking, that when these Dreams and Plans come true, you will be happier with your career than you are right now, will probably "stop" you from enjoying your job today.Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc.  - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981

Don't wait for your Dream Job or a Boost in your Business, or a Change in the economy to be happy with what you are doing today.
Because...
What you are doing today is probably Yesterday's Dreams and Plans, which have came true.

Today is our Day to Enjoy what we are doing right now.

I have heard many people over the years say:
"When I get my business making a profit I will be happy"
Or,
"When I can get my bills paid off I will be happy"
Or,
"When I get more established in my career I will be happy"

But...
Once these Dreams and Plans did come true, they were "not" any happier than they were before.

When we can ENJOY TODAY FIRST...
Then make Plans, and Dream about the future SECOND, we will have MORE SUCCESSFUL Careers and Businesses.
Because, Enjoying where you are RIGHT NOW, overflows into everything you do.
You will be MORE PASSIONATE, have MORE ENERGY, MORE CREATIVITY and MORE PERSISTANCE, which are all the things we need a lot of, to be MORE SUCCESSFUL.

So...
The Secret to making all your Dreams and your Plans come true is to ENJOY TODAY exactly where you are right now.

Have a FUN 4th of July weekend!

With love,
Tammy Taylor

Sometimes we have to start Slow...

This can be challenging, in the fast instant world we are in.

We have instant messaging, fast food, cell phones, credit cards, etc...
We are not used to waiting.

Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc.  - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981

So, when we hear "have patience, start small, start at the bottom, and work your way up" – It could seem scary.

But…
now more than ever, in this New Economy, starting at the bottom and working your way up, is very important; and although this way takes longer, it is more solid. The hands-on experience will develop management skills, increase job talents, improve people skills, work ethics, problem solving and learning from others around you. These are all the things that are crucial to advancing your career.

"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be."
Author: George Sheehan

I prefer to start at the bottom, and work my way up. This is exactly how I learned how to run a business. I started out working in a Salon as a Nail Technician; and then became a Salon Owner, and then a Product Manufacturer.
I have done every aspect of my business, training, shipping, filling, selling, product development etc… And, by learning all aspects of a business, you will know the in's and out’s of the whole business; so when you are in a management position, or you open your own business, you will be ready to build that business and make it successful."

Quote:
"Action conquers fear."
Author: Peter Nivio Zarlenga

Whenever someone asks me if they should open their own business, I say, "Yes", always. However… you need experience first; you need at least 2 years hands-on experience, in the type of business you want to open.

  • If you want to open your own Salon, then you need to work in a Salon; and build your clientele from scratch.
  • Once you can learn how to build a clientele from scratch, and how to work in a Salon environment, observing for 2 years, what you like and what you don’t like, you will have a good grasp on how a Salon should be run.
  • When you have the experience of how to build a clientele, and the experience to train others how to build a clientele, you will have a successful Salon.

The "key" is learning how to build a full clientele from scratch; when you can do this, you have the #1 Skill it will take to open your own business.

A busy Salon (Business) is a successful Salon. And, the busier a Salon is, the happier everyone is.

With love,
Tammy Taylor

How to Renovate Your Business
When you have Champagne taste on a Beer budget...

How can I get the most amount of impact for the least amount of money?!Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc.  - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981
This is a question I get asked a lot.
I like to keep things simple and economical. Rejuvenating your Salon, is just like getting your house ready for an Open House. (PS: You can go to HGTV .com and get some really great ideas.)

I love watching the home shows, like "Design on a dime" or "Curb Appeal"; it
is amazing how much they can do on so little.

This is exactly the same thing we are going to do: We are going to Renovate
your Business for under $1,000. (Make sure to recruit all your friends and their husbands; you will want all the extra elbow grease you can round up.)

Whenever I am watching the Home "make-over" shows, there are certain things which they all do; this will be where we are going to start:

#1 - THROW IT OUT! GET RID OF IT! NO CLUTTER!
Only keep the necessities.
This is going to be the most painful; you might end up throwing out half of everything you have in your Salon. (You should probably get prepared, and rent one of those big trash bins for the weekend).

#2 - CLEAN
CLEAN EVERYTHING from top to bottom, and set out aromatherapy oils or candles, so your Salon smells like a spa.
Clients will feel more relaxed and happier, when your Salon is clean and smells wonderful.

#3 - RE-ARRANGE EVERYTHING, so your Salon will look more spacious, and you will have more room for a sitting area, and a refreshment area.

#4 - PAINT the entire inside of the Salon, and the "front door".
When clients walk up to the front of your Salon, it needs to feel like you are saying, "WELCOME". And, remember the front door, and your entrance area, is your "first" impression.

#5 - FIX EVERYTHING
that is broken, chipped or torn.
After beautifying and cleaning your Salon, you will want to make sure there are no broken hinges on your display cabinet, or any stained chair cushions in the sitting area, etc...

You are going to be so AMAZED at the IMPACT you can make on your Business in just a couple of weekends for UNDER $1,000, you won't want to stop; it is like a domino effect; you will want to keep doing more and more.

And... The Positive Affect all this will make on your clients, and your co-workers is Priceless.

with love,
Tammy Taylor

Last weekend, the World Wide Tammy Taylor Nail Team and myself, did the Orlando Premiere Show, and I would love to share with you, some of the exciting things that happened.

At the Tammy Taylor Nail Party Class, and at the Tammy Taylor Demonstration Booths, we gave Away $1,000's of dollars in Tammy Taylor Products, Prizes and Cash!!!!!!!!!!
And… One of our Lucky Class Attendees, "Michelle Radich", WON a YEAR SUPPLY, of Tammy Taylor Nail Products!!!!

At the Tammy Taylor Nail Class on Sunday, I taught about "Reinventing Your Business", to a room full of very enthusiastic, Professional Salon Owners, Nail Technicians, Instructors, Students and Cosmetologists.

The Tammy Taylor Nail Team came from all over the World:
Italy, Japan, Spain, Bonaire, Trinidad, Bahamas, Florida, California, Alabama, Indiana, Georgia, Kansas, Michigan, Maryland, Missouri, Ohio, North Carolina and Mississippi.

We had the "World of Nails" going on at our booth.
You would start at one side of our booth with demonstrations. From the USA NAIL SQUAD, and the Trinidad and Bahamas Tammy Taylor Nail Team: demonstrating our Famous Pink & White Sculptured Nails, and our Fabulous Tammy Taylor Soak-Off Gel System. Then, move onto the Tammy Taylor International Nail Team, that came in from Italy, Spain, Japan and Bonaire; to teach the "Newest" cutting edge Nail Art Techniques; using all the Tammy Taylor Prizma (Color Acrylic's) and the New Tammy Taylor Nail Colour (Polish).
Some of the exciting New Techniques were: Stiletto Nails, Edge Nails, 3DNails, Corkscrew Nails & Inlays. You name it, these girls could do it, and using only their Tammy Taylor Nail Art Brushes and Tammy Taylor Nail Products.

Our clients never had to leave our booth it was a continuous day of Nail Education.

The World Wide Tammy Taylor Nail Team is an AMAZING group of Nail Technicians and Professionals who have extreme PASSION for NAILS. This was one of the proudest moments in my life, being surrounded by this Team of Passionate, Dedicated, Loyal and Professional people, truly the "Best of the Best".

These AMAZING Nail Technicians worked at their Salons all week; finishing their last clients just before rushing to the airport to catch their flight to Orlando; then training with me all day Saturday; working all day Sunday and again all day Monday, at our Tammy Taylor Nail Booth, doing demonstrations and educating customers about nails.

Then back on the plane, to get to their Salon in time to start their 12 hour day of nail clients!!!

WOW!!! Now, that is PASSION for Nails!!!!!

Our 2010 Motto
"Keep the Nail Party Going!"

Have a Great Nail Day
With love,
Tammy Taylor
