Well that was fun, LOL! We had our first major snowstorm on the day of our Spa Social – Shop Local and Mother Nature put a tiny little damper on our good time. Still had about 50 people through here, and we kept ourselves entertained.

3 weeks until Christmas and we’ve hired another Stylist, Chrisdyan. She does amazing cut & color, is from Elgin, and gives great mani/pedi as well. As we continue building our business it’s so important to have these resident experts on-site and ready to serve. Rebooking rate is high among all of the team, and we’re getting traction with Google and the other search engines. This blog has been helpful.

I’ve also started scheduling continuing education classes for massage. Mondays in January and February I’ll be teaching Sports Massage, Advanced Stretching techniques, Hot Stones, and Pregnancy Massage classes. I take a 3 prong approach to learning, with each class having a lecture, demo, and hands-on portion. This helps all types of brains absorb the material.
Until next time, JulieB
