Rep Power: 0 halfbaked is on a distinguished road
I have a small empty cottage behind my home that I am considering turning into a salon instead of renting it out. I live within walking distance of a University & there are no other tanning salons in this small college town, so I don't believe I would have a problem obtaining business. I know there was a beauty shop in my home at one time, so I feel pretty confident there won't be a problem with the city allowing me to do so, although, I plan to check this out first. I am thinking of beginning with one bed & renting another room out to a massage therapist. I have never owned a business & don't know where to start, so I can use all the help I can get. Can someone give me an idea how much it would cost to start up? Is insurance very high? Please I can use any & all suggestions, I don't have a clue about any of this. Thanks

With just one bed you will spend all of your time there and make no money. I would guess that if you cannot put in at least 4 beds you probably will grow to hate it very quickly because you will not be making money and will be spending all of your time there.

I agree with Teresa, also if your located that close to a university, those kids come in groups of 2-4 when they tan. Need to accomodate them all!
