Do you believe Summer is already here!
And... This year we need to ENJOY every minute of it!
Quote: "Burn brightly, without burning out." – Author- Richard Biggs

I know Summer is supposed to be a time to relax a little more; the kids are out of Tammy Taylor - CEO, Tammy Taylor Nails Inc.  - Entrepreneur and Business Owner since 1981school, maybe taking a little family vacation.
However, I remember in my Salon when Summer would come, all of our schedules and our client’s schedules would get so chaotic it didn’t feel like the “Fun Days of Summer”.

I think Summertime is busier and more hectic because we are trying to figure out how to juggle all of our children's activities, and take care of our clients.
And…our clients are trying to figure out the same thing, and get their nails done.

But…
One of the fringe benefits of being in the Beauty and Nail Business is: it gives us a lot more flexibility to organize our work schedule around our family schedule.

However, it still takes a lot of Organization to juggle both.
So, how are we going to give ourselves more FREE TIME, just to RELAX this Summer, with our families and still take care of our clients? Through... "Organization".

The #1 thing to do first is to figure out your Summer work schedule; this will make everything less hectic for you.

We still need to get in our 40 hours at the Salon: Instead of trying to fit all of your clients into 3 or 4 days, spread your days out to 5 or 6 days, just not as many hours each day; this gives you more flexibility.

Usually our children's activities are during the day so the afternoons and evenings would be a good schedule at the Salon; and, maybe a couple of days at the Salon with an earlier morning schedule.

Many of your clients are standing appointments, who have a set schedule which you cannot change; so they will be our starting point; we will "Organize" around them first.

Get out your work schedule for the next 3 months, and write it all down on a month at a glance calendar for June July and August

Let's say 1 week looks like this:

Monday
OFF

Tuesday
  • 9:00 standing
  • 10:00 standing
  • 11:00 standing
  • 12:00 standing
  • 1:00 on is OPEN

Tuesday will be your early schedule 7:00 am to 3:00 pm = 8 hours
Leaving your entire afternoon OPEN

Wednesday

  • 4:00 standing
  • 5:00 standing
  • 6:00 standing
  • 7:00 standing

Wednesday will be your late afternoon/evening schedule 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm = 7hours
This leaves your whole morning OPEN

Thursday
Scattered openings

  • 10:00 standing
  • 11:00 OPEN
  • 12:00 standing
  • 1:00 OPEN
  • 2:00 OPEN
  • 3:00 OPEN
  • 4:00 standing
  • 6:00 standing

Thursday will be your one long day 9:00 am to 9:00 pm = 12 hours
This is your $$ DAY

Friday

  • 9:00 standing
  • 10:00 OPEN
  • 11:00 standing
  • 1:00 standing

Friday will be your early day 9:00 am to 3:00 pm = 6 hours
This leaves your afternoon OPEN

Now... Saturday or Sunday could be your one extra day to help pick up some of the hours you might have cut out during your week.

Monday would also be good except again there are probably more children's activities going on Monday verses Saturday or Sunday.

Now, that we got ourselves "Organized" we are ready for our "Summertime Nail Parties" and ENJOYING our Summer with our families!

with love,
Tammy Taylor
