I am sort of on vacation myself, and continuing regular twice weekly acupuncture on my formerly broken ankle, and still working at my "regular" job 3 days a week because I wanted to draw out my vacay as long as possible -- long weekends all summer long. So, it has made it a little harder to fit in appointments. And it seems, some of my customers are finding it hard to fit in appoinments as well; I never had a no-show or cancellation til mid June, and now, I have probably 40% cancel on short notice -- mind you I was really really ill earlier this week and had to cancel a couple myself so there you go, stuff happens. But, because of that I make darn sure I am efficient with my time and not doing unnecessary travel. I try to book a bunch of appointments in a row so if one does not show it is not a huge deal. If I can't get people in when it is doable for both of us, well it just can't be done. The wedding tans I've done recently really looked fabulous and I mean freakin' fabulous! They make me a little nervous though as I DO NOT WANT TO MAKE A MISTAKE! but alas, complaints so far have been extremely low, less than 1% of clients (I was aiming for 0% but that was maybe a little unrealistic). Something interesting happened, a former client is now also doing spray tanning for clients, a very very short drive away. Annoying, yes but a little healthy competition never hurt anyone. And, I've already got a good rep, so I'm not hurting! What is also annoying is I can't get this keyboard off italics and it looks like I'm whispering everything or something -- better than getting stuck on caps which looks like you are shouting! SO far, so good here on PEI. I am so lucky to be here in this place!
