Clocks back……..

I put this post up a couple of weeks ago now…. I thought I would share on her to help those that are struggling in business at the moment.

………………………………………..

 

So who forgot to put their clocks back today?

Well…. 8 years ago on Tuesday, in salon, that was me! I will never forget. I had opened KG that year and it was DEAD! The days would drag. My dad used to pop in after he finished work to give me a bit of company. This day he popped in at 5pm for an hour.

As he was getting ready to leave, so was I! I remember him saying, “Where are you going?”
“Home” i’d say.
It’s only 6pm he replied!

That feeling of being exhausted, looking at the clock, waiting to go home as I didn’t have ONE customer that day. I just wanted to cry!!! As I thought it was 7pm… but I forgot to put the clock back! That extra hour felt like a million hours. I would never ever lock up my salon early, just incase that one customer did turn up.

How much longer can I do this for? I remember crying nearly every night when it hit quiet season before the Christmas rush. I didn’t know how I was going to get through another day. The only light I could see was just to end it all and go bankrupt. But that was not my dream!!! And the fear of failing and packing it all up scared the life out of me…. that was the easy option.
But I kept going, and I got through it with a hell of a lot of hard work.
Chloe knows how dead it was and we both plodded on!

Now…. Well, that’s a different story! We don’t have enough hours in a day. Thank the lord. And grateful everyday.

So businesses out there, when it gets tough, don’t give up. Remember why you started and what your end goal is. But remember to change your clocks when you open up tomorrow morning 😉

Have a great week everyone

What a month for KG

What a crazy month it’s been, first of all we completed our first exhibition at the NEC BeautyUK show. Such a busy exciting weekend, it was so lovely to see so many of our customers and introducing ourselves to so many new customers/distributors and students.

 We offered training at a local salon in Warwick which very quickly became fully booked. Katie and Jess taught Classic Individual Lashes and Russian Volume, which went down a storm with the local lash Tech to Warwick. We loved training everyone and can’t wait to see their exciting future in Eyelash extensions! 
This month our training courses have been super busy, because of this we have introduced an exciting offer ! With every course booked not only do you receive your FREE training kit you also receive access to our online course worth over £340. With all of this knowledge in class and at home there is no reason why you shouldn’t succeed!

 Courses take place at our flagship studio in Bedfordshire and now in Gloucestershire with our fantastic trainer Hayley Mountjoy at The Beauty Spot in Tetbury.

If you have any questions on training, please get in touch.

Dreams

So I saw this notepad while shopping and had to get it for our show coming up as I thought it was very apt as being part of an exhibition and having our very own stand is a dream come true for my company!•

But the word “dream” I don’t normally use. Most People that use the word dream are normally “dreamers” dream of things but don’t do nothing about making it happen. Others like myself, if they have a “dream” they will do everything in there power to make that dream come true.

Have you got dreams and aspirations? Why don’t you get a notebook, write them down, think about them and make them happen 💗 Anything can come true if you put your heart, passion and positivity into it. No matter how big your “dreams” are.

Client Announcement

To all our dear clients,

I have sold the shares of KG Styling (Ampthill) and the new owner will take over as from February.

My reasons primarily for this decision is that I have grown the business as far as I can with the time I have. My other business commitments and opportunities are now taking me in different directions. Therefore in the best interest of KG Styling it’s time to step down and let someone else grow the company.

My Mum Karen Godfrey come on board a year ago to support the business but sadly my Nan is battling with cancer and Mum is her full time carer and therefore our priorities have changed.

The salon has gone from strength to strength and doing amazingly. I’m so proud of the fabulous team, their commitment and individual growth.

Rest assured that although the salon will be under new ownership the staff team, services, pricing and products are staying the same. So please carry on booking your appointments as normal being confident that you will be receiving the same highest standard of service.

KG and the new salon will still be working closely together and I wish the new owner all the success in the world. I look forward in watching it continue to grow.

Best wishes,

Katie Godfrey – Director of KG
