Small Taste of the Big World…. Of Salon Ownership
By: Ang Espinosa, Guest Blogger
Many cosmetologists have the dream of owning their own salon, but how do you get your feet wet first in the large world small business ownership before making the big plunge? The answer: booth rental.
Booth renting is a great idea to try on the experience of owning a business. After being in the industry for many years, I was ready to take my experience to the next level. I had built my clientele and was ready for the long hours (I was also ready to be my own boss). I wanted to make money and I knew it was all up to me; working hard came naturally. When clients would call, I would always find a way to fit them into my schedule. I had to; not only did my clients depend on me, but my bank account did too!
My booth renting experience was rewarding. I was happy to know that all the years of hard work gave me loyal clients, the ability to be my own boss, and wear all the hats of a salon owner. I truly believe that everyone should have the experience of booth rental before making a big plunge.
