I had a decision to make. I was hurting, and I had two courses of treatment I could take. The first was going to my doctor and getting a prescription for narcotic pain pills. The second was to take a leap of faith and see a chiropractor in San Jose to see if he could help me with my chronic back pain issues. My pain was slowly getting worse. On a good day, it was very tolerable. However, on a bad day, it was really hard to even get out of bed.
I was tired of letting my back pain have so much power over my life, and I knew that I had to do something before I could not take it any longer. I thought about both options carefully. I knew that if I took narcotics, I would only take them on the really bad days. I knew that I would be able to function much better than what I could on those days where even sitting up in bed was a struggle. On the negative side though, I knew that it was just going to cover up the problem.
I was having a really great time when it happened, about six weeks ago I met this girl and at first it did not really seem as though it was going any place, but over time she really warmed up to me and I saw the opening and took it. At any rate I soon discovered that her family had some money, although that does not seem all that relevant to me. We did get to use their horse ranch, but I hurt my back and had to go see a chiropractor in Peoria AZ. At any rate I was having a beautiful day, it was nice and cool, which it often is up in the altitudes here. I think that I messed up when I saddled up one of the horses. They told me it was an easy horse to ride, but that turned out to be different than the truth because you have to know what you are doing.
Opening a new salon is not the easiest thing in the world to do. I know it might seem like easy work, but the competition that is out there can eat a new salon business up overnight. There are just so many people who want to offer this kind of service, and that is why I make sure I do everything I can to stay relevant. My newest way to do this is a door to door flyer distribution that I do maybe twice a year. I run certain promotions, and I have found that this is the best way to get the word out.
I was going to do a mail marketing campaign, and I had even contacted the company that I wanted to use for it. However, when they quoted me the price for what it would cost, I knew that would eat up a lot of the profits. Since that seemed to be the exact opposite of what makes sense, I just looked for different ways where I would be able to get the word out without spending a lot of money doing so. That is how I came upon the door to door flyer distribution. Continue reading
