Thank you for taking a moment to check out my first post on my Skintuition blog!
I wanted to send out a message of gratitude for being a client of Skintuition! Your support means so much to me! I am truly grateful.
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Lauren, and I am the owner of Skintuition. I have been an esthetician for almost 18 years now. I have owned my own business for more than half of those years. August 1st, 2018 actually marks my 10thyear as a business owner!
When the business started, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to. Without sharing all the stressful details with you, I learned very quickly that owning a business is HARD! Like, REALLY HARD! I already had all the esthetician stuff down pat- that was the easy part. The hard part was figuring out everything else. I learned all the ‘business stuff’ as I went, and I am still learning something new every day. I am so proud to say that the business has grown every year since.
If you have been a client of mine, you may have noticed that it has become more and more difficult to get an appointment with me, and I apologize for that! I have had to slowly start phasing out of client hours so that I can work on managing and running this growing business. It was becoming much too difficult for me to manage 11 employees, marketing, scheduling, bill paying, inventory, ordering, accounting, client relations, maintenance, reports, & the many other things that come with owning a business. To do all of this AND still be able to provide excellent customer service to my clients was becoming very challenging for me. I was at a point where something had to change because I just could not keep up with it all.
I have recently come to the point that I realized that I need to pull away from working on clients almost entirely. This has been such a tough decision for me because I love my clients, and I love seeing them every month! But, it is a necessary transition for me to make so that I can keep focusing on growing Skintuition and managing it the best way that I can. Starting in August, I will only be seeing clients on Thursday mornings.
I appreciate all of your support with this transition, and I encourage you to set up an appointment with any of the 7 estheticians who work at Skintuition. They truly are the most passionate group, and at the top of their game in the esthetics field! And, stay tuned because we will be adding some more services that they are training on now in the next coming months, as well as making some changes to our current spa menu.
Keep checking in on this blog! I am excited to have a platform to share spa news, skincare tips, information about the treatments we offer, product information, staff updates, service menu updates, and anything else that may come up in my mind that I want to share!
Lots of love!
