A decade came to an end yesterday and a new one has begun! I remember when 2010 seemed so far away… but now, here it is, knocking on our doors. Hope this year and this decade brings everyone great health, wealth, and happiness!
What did you do last night? I stayed home with my family, saw a movie, and then watched New Year celebrations from around the world. For years, while in the hospitality industry, I always had to work on the holidays when everyone else I knew was off. I never had the week between Christmas and New Year off, not to mention other holidays. I missed out on many fun things with friends and family. I guess that’s what happens when you have a J.O.B. But for the past decade, since I became self employed, I am now blessed with the FREEDOM to take off whenever I want to, working when I want. Not having a JOB working for someone else is great! I guess that’s how many entrepreneurs feel. After all, you probably became an entrepreneur because you did not want someone to dictate to you when and what you should do, right? However; this past year, I received so many phone calls from entrepreneurs who own their own spa but are working harder in their business than ever before. Many owners are performing treatments instead of working ON their business. They don’t have the freedom they deserve.
Last year, we helped many entrepreneurs get out of the treatment room. We guided them to work on their business, to make it more successful, and begin living with freedom, rather than becoming a prisoner to their job. What about you? Are you working too hard? Can’t take time off? Skipped a vacation or two? Time for a change! This is a great time to make the change. It’s a new year, a new decade, and let there be a new you!
Let us help you! You can start by attending the Leap Ahead Spa Director Seminar on Feb 22-24 in Orlando. You will get your hands on a new business model and a blueprint on how to transform your business and begin living the life you deserve!
We’ve helped many spa owners transform their business! Shannon and Amy own Heavenly Hands in Mustang, Oklahoma. They both worked in the room: one massage after another, all day, every day. Working, working, working, until they attended our spa director seminar last year. They moved to a larger location and are no longer in the room. Now, they work ON their business!
Or Mary from Gainesville, Florida. She owns a 5,000 SF spa and was still in the room when I met her. She attended the seminar and now she is working ON her business instead of in it! Mary is achieving a new level of success and has more freedom than ever before!
I was speaking to a husband of an owner the other day who attended the Leap Ahead sneak preview call. He is considering attending the seminar. I was answering some of his questions when I discovered he does the financials for his wife’s spa. So I asked him how the business was going. He proceeded to tell me that everything was great. They are so busy then I asked if they have the freedom to have a quality lifestyle and take time off? So he said, “Oh no, my wife is so busy she can’t take time off!” He proceeded to tell me that she is in the room working 10 to 12 hours a day! I thought to myself, that’s crazy! He thinks they are doing great when his wife is in the room being a slave to her business! Then, he went on to tell me how she loves doing that! Who loves being in a treatment room all day when they own the business?
Remember, the reason you went into business is to have the freedom to do what you want when you want. If you are not doing that, you need help and you need to make changes. So start this new decade on the right foot. Start thinking differently! There are answers out there. The best part is you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Let us help gain your freedom and make 2010 your best year ever!
