Do you ever wonder what people are saying about you? I wish I could tell you that I am one of those strong people who doesn’t care what others think, but I would be lying. Who doesn’t want someone to say good things about them once in a while?
Last week I received a phone call from a young lady who asked if I were taking any new clients. She went on to tell me that she lost her former Stylist and was looking for someone to take care of her hair. She needed color and a few other things, but I was the professional and I should make that decision. Although my schedule is tight, I accepted her and made the appointment.
She said the cutest thing on appointment day. Over the years she’s heard about me and never considered making an appointment because “they” said that “I had people hanging out the doors.” I wish I was a graphic artist because I would put that picture right here and now! LOL!
I don’t really know whether that was meant to be a compliment or not, but I choose to believe that what “they” said was a compliment. Isn’t that truly what every Hairstylist, Barber, Make-Up Artist and Beauty Professional needs and wants? We want so many clients that they are literally hanging out the doors.
When people are hanging out the doors of your business that means you have a strong and stable clientele. It means that people like and trust you, and that you must be providing quality service or they wouldn’t come back.
What people are saying is okay. It’s not what they think or say about you that is important. What is important is what you think or say about them. So Beauty Pro’s speak kindly about your fellow Stylists and people in general. Always remember that if you sow good, you will reap good.
