Good day all...
These snow/sleet/hail episodes really need to stop, especially on my days off from work. I guess I'll be wearing turtlenecks until June. They got the AC pumping high at work, too, it's like Iceland. No wonder why we are always sick. The warmest spot is the bathroom and as you all know, I have no problems staying in there for an hour. think I took a short nap while I was in there...( oh dear). It's been so slow and dead, but on the bright side, our new manager is really cute and really cool. She and I talk about all the things that can be changed to bring the salon a better quality of client. I think we have the capability to draw in lawyers, doctors, and professionals, not just military. Then again, I think the change will really have to begin with us as a team.
I have also decided to stop my own insanity. Since finding out that I can get commission if I sell products to clients, I make sure that I spend more time with them, and not try to help the retail side as much. I feel that my "superwoman" attempts have worked against me, and I just can't make a living giving my talent away. All these chicks make more money than me, but I work harder than half of them. I am also making strides to be a traveling makeup artist, offering my service to people outside of the store. This way, I can get money in full amount and not just a measly 34%. I also think I am going to invest in my own kit for "work" and not rely on the cosmetics sold there, anymore. That would be less cleanup for me. Having a station and a facial room, bouncing from one end to the other wears me out. I also put the kibosh on people asking me for help when I'm on the clock. I am not getting paid extra for this service and if I'm off the clock, dammit, I'm off the clock. I can't just keep doing the same things over and over again, expecting a different result. The managers don't appreciate me, I get it. The customers think I'm their robot monkey...bitch please. I have to get to a point where I am happy.
