One of the most difficult things in any practice is how to keep the bills paid while you are waiting for your money to come in. This is especially true of practices that are relying on health insurance or employee assistance program payments. Some will say that you should just take self-pay clients to resolve this issue, but this is difficult to do particularly when you are first starting out. Also, just because clients are “self-pay” doesn’t necessarily mean that they are good about paying you! Here are some things that you can do to improve your cash flow.
Speaker dock. Soothing audio is often an integral part of creating ambiance for a massage therapy session. However, it is not practical for you to haul a stereo system around with you everywhere you go. A pint-sized speaker dock that enables you to plug in your smart phone, tablet, or portable music player is the perfect solution.
Modern Hardware – You should pay attention to the aesthetics of the point-of-sale hardware just as you would to any other store fixture. You will interact with customers more at the cash wrap than any other area in the store; so make sure to make it a pleasant experience.
It’s important to ensure you can lease a limo credit card processing for a limited time and the machine shall be delivered when you order it. If the company is unable to ship the machine on time, it means you’re risking your own profit. And ensure you know precisely how long you’ll need the machine. You do not need to sign an extended-time period contract for a machine that you just need for less than three month.
Schedule. Booth renters should be allowed to set their own hours as long as they are within the specified salon hours of operation. Keep in mind that tenant/landlord laws differ from state to state.
First, ask yourself: when you go to a Trade Show, Expo or Business Fair, what attracts you to the various booths? When you see a slovenly-dressed attendant sitting down or worse yet – talking on her cell phone, does that just draw you to the display? Of course not!
Frankly, anytime you’re traveling outside the United States (except Canada), I recommend an arranged ride. Canada’s relatively safe. Canadians are much like Americans, except we Americans are fatter and carry guns.
