New Year; New Goals

I don't make "resolutions"... I believe setting goals & making plans are a better way to work toward achieving success. So, this year, I sat down and made a few plans for this year.

1. Take the remaining two CND certification classes: Master Architect & Master Sculptor.
2. Download the SQUAREUP app so I can finally take credit cards.
3. Take more photos of my work (preferably, *all* of my work).
4. Get my retail up to par, and sell, sell, sell!
5. Attend at least one networking event.
6. Repair the few holes in my walls left from the previous techs, and give my room a fresh coat of blue paint.
7. Get my room fully reorganized (which *will* happen as soon as my husband builds me that corner polish rack I've asked for).
8. Buy a new pedi chair OR a massage/heat pad for the current one.
9. Add at least five more regular clients.
10. By the end of the year, I will need upgraded brochures & business cards -- 2013 brings price increases, and I'll be a "CND Certified Grand Master"!

I'm sure I'll add more as I think of them, but this list of ten is a good start!

I'm also curious: What are YOUR goals within your business this year?


  1. Great goals! Its exciting to hear you will be raising your prices, I hope every nail tech has that on their list :)

  2. I'm a firm believer in giving myself a raise every two years. My costs go up (product, rent, gas, etc) and my education level increases... I deserve it! :)

  3. Great goals! I have a few as well..
    1) Complete the CND Sculptor & Painter class (I already took the architect class when it was known as L&P so I need to check if its necessary to re take)
    2) Prices have already increased so I would like to add some extra goodies to my spa services (hot towels..coming next week)
    3) Find a CND education mentor.. I would love to teach Shellac to other nail professionals
    4) Shake the hands of Jan Arnold & Vicki Peters!
