Hello You, doing my due diligence on marketing here <3    Accountability. Consistency. Planning. Execution. Do the things, Julie! Send the emails. Be the Voice. Put your head down and focus! Your company needs you! Argh! LOL The struggle is real! #SideQuests #PassionProjects #Discipline #TimeManagement What does your self talk sound like? I'm really paying attention to that internal game these days. The stories we tell ourselves and messages we send inside and out are so powerful. I don't let my clients say "I'm a hot mess" anymore. Stop that. Sometimes that critical little voice is motivating when inspiration fades, and sometimes she's just a nag. We all know what
Hello You, you doing that Pumpkin Spice thing yet?   LOL #Basic (My teens keep me trendy, I swear. I'm cool! Not cringy! Cool!)   It's time for a lil Spa Scoop newsletter check-in action! I've been spending more time behind the front desk, rockin the ole Admin vibe & collaborating with my team on all the things. One of my favorite parts of hanging at Reception is to receive feedback from people that you actually read these! (Ms. Laura R, Sandy P, & Jennifer V - love you, thank you for inspiring me and supporting our small business, as always) Community matters. Communication counts. So here we go!   We're
Hello You, how things in your world? We are settling into our new routine this month, with school, activities, and self-care. Hope your summer is winding down nicely as well. I made a commitment to myself and my kids last year that I wouldn't get manic busy again, and it's hard to maintain a boundary in the schedule when you've got 10 irons in the fire! How many of you are looking at the calendar going, "How did I get so busy again?" Blank space in the schedule is required. #2021 #Allow Please do me a favor, right now, and go block
Hello You, how you be?  Julie here, just checking in for the summer! The kids are off to camp for the week, the garden is plumping up, and the heat has arrived. Yay. We're looking forward to a smooth and relaxed next couple of months while we support our community in enjoying their life and their beautiful bodies as much as possible. I'm filled with gratitude for the fabulous team we've curated here, and the new upgrades and additions that have happened. We remodeled our reception area to have better front desk flow, added a barn door to reduce noise pollution, and made a
Happy February! Let's show each other, and ourselves, some love this month, shall we? It's an important time for self-care and reflection. Winter in Chicago allows us to focus inward, slow down, and process. We can take our time thinking things through, healing, and caring for our loved ones. I encourage you to include yourself on that list of loved ones. <3 No other deep thoughts today beyond I love you. I'm doing the best I can, hope you are too, and support you in living your best life. Now, on to the February happenings!! 🙂 FACIALS ARE BACK! : Book any facial $100 or more and
How are you doing this fine Friday? Thank you to everyone who's been keeping in touch and doing the things! I love connecting and sharing the stories. Keep 'em coming! I did some deep processing and reflecting earlier this month, spent some time strategizing with Dr. Steve & Manager Erica, and am enjoying moving forward. I wrote a deep blog post about being a lighthouse I shared here if you want to read some ponderings. Getting back into writing creatively and inspirationally this year as we continue to re-grow our business. Gotta feed both sides of the soul, ya know? I had planned on doing a detailed
How are you doing today? Like, for real for real. Respond to me if you want to share, I'll write back, I promise. With the amount of remote work I'm doing, I've got time to actually have a conversation and connect over email. Have you been checking in with yourself though, lately? With your head, your heart, your gut? Have you been able to pause and reflect, asses your surroundings? What does your body need? What do YOU need? Is there anything we can do to help each other? Our company is deeply entrenched in this community, and I want you to
I hope this email finds you well and good. I'm hunkered down with my 2 kids for the next week or so, cancelled travel plans for December, and am focused on being the best mom, business owner, and massage therapist I can be. That means keeping it simple and small, for now. This holiday season will be very different from our 20 people or more family dinners, but a worthy sacrifice. I want to be able to tell my clients I haven't been taking unnecessary risks and they can feel safe in my hands. I'd like to acknowledge everyone who's working
This is the hardest email I've ever had to write. It is with heavy heart but clear conscience the team and I have decided to close the Carpentersville Salon, permanently, on November 14th, 2020. This would have been our 8th Holiday season at C'Ville, but it's time to face reality. My business has changed. The industry is evolving. So are we. Our C'Ville location was a fantastic entrepreneurial starting point, with great memories and so many lessons, but it's no longer viable. Our lease is up and it doesn't make sense to renew at this time.  The thought of signing another 2
Hello Lovelies! Hi & Howdy, October is upon us, and so far so good in the ole Fox River Spa world. We had a lovely September Pop-Up Market & Parking lot party - thank you so much to everyone who came! I have to give a HUGE shout out of thanks to our C'Ville Manager, Natalie, for being such a superstar organizer and communicator. Managing a Salon is no easy task - managing during a pandemic and then your boss having an idea to host a pop up market? #SuperStar LOVE YOU GIRL!! Thanks again for helping a vision come to life!
