In this episode, we talk about the professional biases we have within the industry. I know, as a professional, I am particular about the salons I visit when I feel like being pampered. Whenever I need a break from maintaining my own nails, I visit local nail salons in hopes that I’ll find a salon that does a job as well as I do. Admit it, you too. Very seldom do we go get services at a salon as a professional and completely relax. I’ve only done that ONCE and it was in a salon that I worked in. A simple conversation with my auntie about tax evasion in the salon space triggered a new episode. Under the table, half check half cash, all check, bi-weekly, weekly, pay, and what it all means.

    S2E9: Not "Just" A Nail Tech

    29:21

    Hey Good People, Not "Just" A Nail Tech is a think piece. Earlier this week, I saw a post by Nailpro Magazine that featured Celina Ryden's story about the struggle of Nail Technology being recognized as a real job. *scoff* The nerve, right? Her story resonated with me so much because I shared a similar experience when deciding to work as a nail technician.

    S2E8: Set Your Price and Live Your Life

    38:50

    Hey good people! Happy Tuesday! I hope these last couple of weeks have been productive for you as we transition into the last quarter of 2021. I know, right? The year is almost over and we made it through another year and a half of trying to abide by CDC guidelines and then taking risks! (Wear your masks and continue to social distance, please). I also entered into my last year of business school so I am equally excited about what is to come for Nails by Rah and Confessions of a Nail Tech. Speaking of which, I did some research on my most listened to the episode and the number of subscribers and follows that I have gained since I started this podcast last year and I am truly amazed! I cannot express enough gratitude for you all because again, without listeners, I’m just another professional with a podcast, so thank you! After doing some research I found that the most listened-to episode was Episode 5 from Season 2, “Why is my Full-set So expensive?” You all must really like this one! I wanted to do an episode to recap on the way to work the price into your service without setting off your clients. We learned in that episode that you must set your price and do not bend the rules. Yes, we are here to provide nail services, but we are also here to make a profit.  Books that I mentioned in this episode were: Woman Evolve - Sarah Jakes Roberts Year of Yes - Shonda Rhimes Nice Girls Don't Get Rich - Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D Jazz - Toni Morrison  Follow me on Socials: Twitter: @NailsByRah Instagram: @NailsByRah YouTube: @NailsByRah Blog: www.confessionsofanailtechblog.wordpress.com  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/support

    S2E5: Why is My Full-Set So Expensive?

    30:42

    Hey Good People, I saw a post floating around my timeline about how nails have become so expensive over the years. I read through 10% of the comments, internally laugh and then screaming when I saw the comments. In 2021 customers want a full-set of nails for $25 and a fill in for $12. Yes, you don't know what you don't know, however, it isn't wise to bargain with your nail care provider. In an older post, I briefly explain why some of these prices remain the same in certain shops and the danger of exposing yourself to cheaper chemicals.  So, why the uproar over expensive salon prices?

    S2E4: Out with the Old, In with the New Year

    25:50

    Happy New Year! I feel it's appropriate to say until the end of January.  In this episode, we dive deep into what we want for 2021. I think 2020 put a lot of things into perspective for us and turned us into survivors. We survived a pandemic! Yes, the nail salon survived a pandemic! If the year didn't kill you then it certainly made you stronger.  Support this podcast with a small monthly donation to help sustain future episodes. https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/support --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/support

    S2E3: Own Your Hustle

    12:53

    Hey Good People, Happy Tuesday! Welcome in November! This is a new month with new opportunities and NO NONsense. You know, I’ve been seeing a lot of memes and things on my timeline about learning how to say “NO” in November to keep your sanity. I agree, there are a lot of things we have to learn to say no to, am I right? So in this “No” November, I am saying NO to candy, alcohol, and people with ill intentions (especially the folks who think nail techs should price match services, but that’s for a later episode). What are you saying NO to this season? Speaking of which things have slowed down as we near the end of 2020! It doesn't really mean much because 2021 and 2022 are looking abut the same until we get a handle on this coronavirus, however, we have reached a slow season in the salon, what do you do when this happens?

    S2E2: Life After the Salon

    29:36

    You know it’s time to leave a place of employment when you start to feel undervalued, even after making your concerns known with the person in charge. If you have listened to season 1, my first episode is dedicated to “Knowing your Worth” where I talk at length about setting your price and understanding the value that you bring to the salon. Yes, even my students who just became licensed bring value to a salon. So, you must know what when you start to feel undervalued that it is time to part ways. I’m not saying to up and quit, I’ve done that before too. What I’m saying is to have a plan for your life after leaving the salon.  Support this podcast with a small monthly donation to help sustain future episodes. https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/support Follow me on Social Media: IG @Nailsbyrah Twitter: @Nailsbyrah Youtube: @nailsbyrah Teespring for Nail-Tech shirts and Masks: https://teespring.com/stores/nailsbyrah  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nails-by-rah/support
