Yesterday FastSigns installed the vinyl front door sign which is based on the image I recently took of Sarah (grand-daughter). They worked really fast getting it done ... I was pleasantly surprised. And sent a image showing their handy work.
Also, the Sola Salon crew finished painting and prepping my suite, and then also sent images declaring "Your suite awaits you!" Since I have not yet stepped a foot into the suite, these images have helped me visualize better. I didn't find out the suite was available until Diane and I were at the Denver airport waiting to fly home after our December trip. Michelle, the Sola Salon Regional Manager, has been absolutely amazing! She measured and took pictures to help me plan.
I won't be surprised if over a dozen packages from Amazon and Build.com arrive this weekend to be ready for us on Monday, when we'll start doing the final salon setup. Much goes into preparing the suite to welcome our customers with appropriate comfort and amenities. It is easy to forget when you work in someone else's salon where everything is provided. This experience takes me back many years to when Diane and I opened Bill Rose Hair Design in Mission Viejo, CA. it is almost like coming full cycle.
One of the most exciting aspects of this new salon adventure is that I can now show images and videos like never before. Gone will be the 23" monitor ... mounted on the wall will be a 55" 4K HDTV. My clients and photography will look amazing!
Monday and Tuesday will begin our salon experience again as we get ready to welcome our first clients on Wednesday. It is quite exciting!
