If you use you brain once in a while you wont need people to start and help you with your business.. Advice is good but why pay someone probably a good amount of money for nothing. Self education is what it is about. What moves did you do to your salon what ideas did you have to better your salon. How many long days did you put in you salon???? Get self satisfaction because YOU DID IT!!!!!! Not someone else telling. Why do so many people get in the business and literally dont have a clue but think instant $$$$$$$$ Good luck

Yes we have an 800 number and yes we run a number of salons.

Yes, I would agree with you that some questions should and are answered for free. But, depending on the level of service and the amount of information that you are looking for, should and does determine what fee is charged.

While you may take your car to the garage and have them put air in your tires for free, would you expect them to work on it for free?

Everything has value, something's more than others. While talking to a consultant about your business, or ideas, may not have any value to you. There are some people out there that it holds tons of value.

While there are many things that seem very easy and simple to come up with in the tanning business. Every wrong decision also has a value. To many wrong ones and the bank comes knocking. Some people have deep enough pockets that making the wrong choices won't hurt them to bad. Others are smart enough to know that it is better to spend a little now, than a lot later.

We sit down with you and discuss the level of service that you need. If you simply have questions on construction or business plans, then the pricing would be much lower than someone that wanted everything would.

We have had people that wanted us to help them with the bank, build their store and show them how to run it. Something on this scale is obviously going to be more money.

What is this worth? Well, how much money could you potentially lose in this phase of your business? Compared to some of the horror stories that are out there, are fees are minimal.
