F A Q 🙋♀️
1) How has it been? What’s the story?
It’s been a month since I started at Bella and it’s been amazing!! My clients are loving it! My co-workers have been so warm and welcoming. It feels like home 🙂
So it’s kind of a funny story… I was recruited by the new, new owner of Bella by accident. I was posting ads looking for a new assistant on the usual job websites like Craigslist, Linked-in, and Indeed. He saw my resume and reached out. The time seemed right so I took a leap! He is super nice and I am happy to be an employee. I learned that I am one of those people who loves structure and that self-employment wasn’t a good fit for me. I am so grateful for the experience and met so many nice people on my 3 year adventure of being an independent contractor.
2) Why are you double booking with an assistant?
So I can do hair for at least two more decades 🙂 I love my job but it can be hard on my body. My carpel tunnel flares up when I work too much so this is a great way to give my body a rest and at the same time I can mentor a new stylist.
By double booking, I am no longer on a wait list and I have way better flexibility. You can book like a normal person now 🙂
3) Wow, your Social Media has really taken off? What’s the deal?
Isn’t it so fun?!? I have learned a lot and have come so far thanks to my amazing assistant Naomi, Bella and their social media team – Hot Dog Marketing, and podcasts like Thriving Stylist.
