We're in the first quarter of the year and it's time to "Spring Clean!" During this time of year, many business owners are attempting to gather all needed information for tax preparation. This is also a great time to make sure all other things are in order, personal and business.
Take time to check expiration dates on licenses and important paperwork. Check the salon's inventory and order needed supplies. This is also a great time to do spring cleaning. This doesn't have to be a major "undertaking," so, start small. Get the staff together when the salon is closed, go through and start throwing things away.
If you haven't used something in a year or more, it's time to get rid of it. Some people hold on to things with the intention of using it and never do. Go through drawers in your work area and clean them, they tend to get really junky. Also, the storage closet, be sure to give it a thorough cleaning, being it tends to get full pretty quickly.
As the manager and/or owner, it may take a complete day to clean the office. As paperwork piles up easily without immediate attention. Sometimes, you have to close the door and make it a priority to get things completed. But, in many cases, it's easy to hide things in drawers and file cabinets. Again, if something hasn't been used in a year or longer, throw it away!
Although, for the overall salon, this is a great time to change the paint, if, only in one room. It's a great time to change the accessories, such as, a garbage can. For example, if it's white, change it to stainless steel. Or, change a picture on the wall or hang another set of curtains. Sometimes, chaining from white blinds to a different color can give the business a new "vibe."
So, get busy this year, again check your licenses, expiration dates on important paperwork, if your relocating, be sure to change your information at the postal services, and take inventory of your personal and business life. As some people say, "out with the old, in with the new!!!"
Until Next Time.........
Create a Better Day!
