I have never understood why people care how many tanners they see in a day other than as a staffing metric.
me too! i'd rather work less for more... its all about how much is in the register at the end of the day.

Re: Broke at record today

This is what wrong with owners , all you think about is how much MONEY I make, it not about being sucessful, it all about the $$$. well. Here my thought, being sucessful is what it all about, and that my friend will bring in the $$$, but if that all you think about , this is why you are closeing and I am opening another salon.# 3.So if it the # you want , 1500+a day, with 200 + a day tanner.Oh yes I do have the bad season just like u.
When I came into this town 4 years ago there were 9 tanning salon in a 2 mile radius,2 just across the street. What I saw was old beat up equipment and nothing for customer to chose from , I came in did a salon from the ground up and started with no customers, Myself and my great staft build the salon to were it is today, we are the # 1 salon
I look at this as a bus, when I came on , I had to go to the back of the bus. I wanted to drive the bus, so I work to see how I could , so in a short time there I was driving the bus, I had owner **** at me but I had no customer and bills had to be paid or I be out of business before I even started.and you were on the bus long before I came along. I came up with an idea from a artical in Smart Tan from a salon that was out in the Mid west , and thought about it and decided to do what she did, but only with my version.and the rest is history.I am greatful for all I have , I work hard for all, and continue to do so.Life is short and be thankful for all you have , you are doing better then the guy in a wheelchair , he will never get the chance to do what you are doing.

What. The. Heck did you just write?! Wow

Whenever you want to take a minute to rewrite this in the English language - I'd love to give it a read.

I'm being serious - I want to read it - I just couldn't follow you.

Now now, let's all get along. I too, firmly agree, that undocmented be required to learn the English language, before granting citizenship. Also patting ones' back, could constitute a success story, but not always.
