Should I or shouldn’t I ?Posted: October 22, 2008
Well, I had a pseudo-job offer today.
I went to another salon in town today, after something I’d heard I could buy there today. It was a salon I’d been curious about, it’s actually a salon and day spa, and is really classy. I found out when I was inside, visiting with the owner, that it had also been voted the best in town 2008 by an annual local poll. I used to work with the owner, at another salon, several years ago. Anyway, she was just showing me around, and it came up that she had an opening, and maybe we could work something out.
They need someone to do nails…including regular manicures and pedicures. That’s the thing, I only do artifical nails…and have never flexed my pedi muscles. Never really wanted to, really. But I can. And they seem to be a really busy salon, with regular call-ins.
I have to ask myself if I’m ready to do this, if I want to change and do a full-header reinvention of my cosmetology career.
I don’t know. It’s tempting. It’s a beautiful salon, higher-end, yet I didn’t feel out of place or uncomfortable. I think it’s a place my clients would feel comfortable.
But…ugh. The idea of another big change.
The lease is higher, but the potential of making more money is definitely there. I’d have to get over my aversion to taking on people I don’t know. I know, weird, and it’s only come on the past few years, which is One reason my hair career is not as it should be at the moment. I think my exposure to a host of different people at the supermarket job has helped somewhat. I don’t know if it’s my anxiety issues, or my issues with my self-confidence lately, or the loss of trust I’ve experienced the past few years in my relationships with people I thought I could trust.
I have to face it, I’m just weird sometimes, and I don’t know why. 🙂
Man, I’m a headcase. 🙂
But I’ll be thinking on it.
