Have you recently qualified as a nail technician and are you now interested in working from home? Creating your own business can be very rewarding. But only if you know exactly what you are doing.
The great thing about working from home is the fact that you have to spend more time with family and less time traveling. It gives you the same amount of freedom as a mobile technician would; only you do not have to travel at all if you leave home. But while it may be a good decision, you need to know how to go about setting up a home business correctly.
Here's how to set up a nail salon for the home
The first thing you need to think about is where exactly you should set up the salon. Which room would be better? Do you want it to be separate from the rest of the house or will you just deal with working in the kitchen? You must take into account the size of the equipment and the working conditions you will encounter. Do you really work in your kitchen?
Once you have decided where to have the salon, make sure that the health and safety regulations are met. You can do this by looking at the HABIA website. You need to plan the layout carefully and you also need to seek approval from local authorities so you can run a business from your premises.
Another potential problem you may find is that there can often be a smell that comes with the equipment you buy. This smell can spread throughout the house and it can affect family life. Even the fact that strangers come in and go out all the time can also interfere with family life. So you have to try to keep the two as separate as possible.
One disadvantage of working from home that you may not have considered is that you do not have any colleagues to chat with. When you work in a salon you will regularly chat with your colleagues and they will help to brighten the day. You will still have customers to talk to, but it is not always the same. So you might think it is a bit insulating sometimes.
Overall, working from home can be good and it gives you the flexibility you need if you are a working parent. But you have to make sure you plan everything carefully so that you have the best chance of success.
