This sounds really tempting to me, but I'm on a tight budget right now. Is it worth the money?

Good information and education will always help you out.

I say yes.

I have been a member since right after I opened, anytime I ever had a question they would answer it, they always answer emails.

The more you educate yourself the better. If there are no other certified salons in your area, this would be a way to have a leg up on the competition.

I am the only certified salon in my town. My customers are being to learn there is more to tanning than someone just purchasing a tanning bed and selling visits.

Had a new customer call today and she's wanting a tan by her wedding end of December. After I gave her a brief explanation of how she could achieve her goal and talked about the lotions that could help with that she asked:

What hours are you there? I want to come in, but I want to be sure you're there so I can learn about all this.

You can also get your local paper to do a feature article on you when you get your certification. I wrote my article and took it to the paper along with a picture when I became certified.

yes join by all means. it not only gives you a more creditable salon, but you can keep training your employees all year long.

Sorry, didn't mean to do that.

Thanks for all of your replies. Really I think I was already sold after checking out their web page, I just needed someone to help me justify spending the money. I called them about an hour ago.

As for employees, I don't have any yet. I'm sure that by March I'll be wishing I did but for now I will have to wait.
