As most of my customers know, I've had to schedule some funny hours lately.I am needed away from the business for 5 hours on every wednesday and friday afternoon somethingIhope to have rectified soon. I've accomodated this by working extended hours on those days. and adding mondays to my schedule. I've also taken on alot of new business in the last 2 months which is really good news! Soon summer will be upon us and there will be more scheduling changes. But of late, despite the large number of hours I work, I am filling up further in advance than I am used to. I'm working on the return of an apprentise to Electrolysis By Seana, but I dont know who that might be yet. I am however urging customers to book as early as they can. It's taking up to a week to book in at this point, and many customers who have gotten to booking just before, are finding there are no time slots available for them. This is good news for the business but problematic if you need hairs off now! We are doing our best to offer the maximum availability that we can , and will be adding another electrologist soon.
So much has changed since that last post, and this is one fairly ignored part of my site so I thought I would give an update on how things are now going. December and January were our worst months ever, but I've come to know and expect that as seasonal downturn.Things improved a bit in february and continued to get better right through to now. But I carry a large expense load for office and supplies . So there's room for improvement, but I am finally getting almost enough traffic.My 2017 total sales, put me very close to the limit to no longer be considered a "small supplier" so as of May 4 I am registered to now collect the HST tax. I'm facing a large challenge on my time to accomodate a family need, I am having to close for large parts of wed and friday. I've extended hours on most of my weekdays to provide more availability, and am currently working 6 days a week.While it's tempting to bring another apprentice on board and long term I will, I'm being a bit choosey as to who I will have in and not in any hurry.
