ELIMINATED YOUR SLOW SEASON YET?

I have a growing list of Lumierre owners and their comments about their experience with Lumiere and the company who sold it to them. I'm especially interested in success stories. Please tell us how you've eliminated your slow season in the tanning business. This thing is incredible.
