It’s an exciting time, preparing to rent a salon suite, opening your own business; it’s a huge step towards financial freedom.  We understand, but we also have one word of advice before you take the big leap, and it is that advice we will share with you in this article. We are Salon & Spa Galleria, and we are rockin’ the Fort Worth area with twenty-two salon suite rental locations. Call us at 817-917-1416 for more information and to arrange for a tour of our facilities.

Now, let’s talk about that advice we promised you.

Preparing to rent a salon suite is a huge step.

Career decisions don’t get much bigger than leaving the relative safety and security of a beauty salon owned by someone else, where your job and income are guaranteed, and opening a business where you have no safety net and your income is not guaranteed.  There is a very good reason why there are still beauty specialists who work for other people in a hair salon, nail salon, or other salons associated with the beauty industry, and that reason is the comfort in knowing the next paycheck is guaranteed, and their bills will be paid at the end of the month.

This is no small matter, and for many this is the Number One reason why they remain employees rather than owners.

So, let us just say this: we applaud you if you are considering taking this massive step.

So much to consider when you rent a salon suite.

If you are one of the minority who is considering going it alone, the To Do List seems endless.  This ownership gig is, most likely, completely new to you, and it all seems so daunting.  What about insurance for your business? Do you need insurance for your salon suite? What about decorating your new luxury salon studio?  Where can you get help on taxes and other bookkeeping duties?  Should you have employees? What about marketing and advertising? Where can you find advice about all of these things? Who can you call?  What hours should you operate?  Do you need a business plan and a mission statement?  The list never seems to end, but you are excited to get started, and now you are feeling anxious and bit apprehensive.

Our #1 piece of advice before you begin the process.

We understand! We see this daily in our clients.  We know the pressure you are feeling, and that is why our piece of advice is so important . . . and here it is:  Take a deep breath and slow down!

Without going all Zen on you, there really is something to say to relaxing, understanding the process, and allowing the process to unfold of its own accord.  Opening your business will happen.  You have already committed to it.  It is just a matter of time, and how you spend that time will make a huge difference regarding your chances of success.

We suggest, based on our considerable experience in these matters, that before you quit your gig in the beauty salon owned by someone else, you save up enough to live for a month or two after you quit your job.  Two months would be ideal. Then, once you quit, you can spend one full month preparing to open your salon, and you will have another month of income in savings for that first month of business, sort of a financial safety net so you can relax and enjoy the process.

So, there it is:  Take a deep breath, relax, and slow down.
