I am fortunate to live in a Southern California beach town. I have surfed most of my life because of my close proximity to the ocean. Unlike how it is portrayed in the movies, California beaches get cold in the winter, requiring surfers to wear wetsuits this time of the year. I needed a new wetsuit this year and my shopping experience at the local surf shops left much to be desired because of their point-of-sale systems. They have the technology to provide outstanding customer service, so why aren’t they using it?
Another thing you need to keep clearly in mind is that many of the charges you will incur are not made as apparent on the monthly contract or merchant application. Is this an accident? Not at all! Many business people simply do not want to take the time to investigate what all the miscellaneous fees are and would rather just stick to asking, “What is my discount rate?” Merchant credit card providers realize this and therefore continue to cater to this mentality by printing the discount rate in larger print on advertisements and merchant account applications. Is this wrong? I don’t believe so. Is choosing a merchant account based on the discount rate going to get you the cheapest account? Definitely not!
Advertising a gift shop will be approached from a different angle than from that of the kiosk proprietor unless you are operating your gift shop inside a mall. Malls have distinct rules about advertising on the premises and the Mall Management office will explain those.
What is Included? A traditional booth rent salon generally offers booth renters a small work station alongside with the other renters of the salon. This includes a chair, mirror and a station. Most of the services are performed at the workstation and generally include shares spaces such as a sink and dryers. Because booth renters are business owners, they are required to provide their own supplies. This includes shears, hot tools, clips, towels, hair product, foils, business cards, etc. Some salons may offer incentives to get stylists to rent in their salon such as the use of a washer and dryer, break room , drinks and use of the free credit card machine for small business. This should be specified in the booth rental lease agreement.
Ok, we need some assumptions here. We initially need to agree that you can find 20 new people a month who want to lose weight quickly, or people who, if they knew they could lose weight quickly, they would do it. There is a difference.
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!
First of all, the “victim” here is 20 years old. Why did daddy have to write this letter for her? Second, it seems to me that it is a stupid travel habit not to have any cash at hand, in order to prevent situations like these. Also, what in God’s name would compel you to give up a device worth $100 more than the cab ride? There are procedures in this country for these type of inconveniences and problems. You aren’t going to get thrown in the slammer because the drivers credit card machine is broken, but thanks Dad for your concern.
