    Good Luck. You will do fine.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I LOVE for my styles to talk to me as they are going my hair. I had this one lady that would not hardly say a word, I never went back to her. Those that talk, I feel like they really care about what I want.

    I know you'll enjoy it- I always felt lucky if I found someone who could give me a cut that I could make easily look good going to work. I did not have time each morning to fuss (animals to clean and feed all before getting to work around 7am) and a good hair cut was worth a lot to me.
    Good luck and may you be in so much demand that you have to stress over turning people away- a witing list is good.

    Good luck! Put some pics of the goats on your mirror and that will start your customers talking and will put you at ease. :D

    Thanks guys.

    I sat around all day doing nothing till around 3;00 and that is when I got my first and only hair cut of the day - bummers. OH well the other girl only got like 3 hair cuts herself and she was bored too. She said it wasn't normal.

    Julie - I never thought of that. I just figured that people wouldn't want to hear about my goats. Maybe I will do that. Everyone else has their boyfriends up so why can't I have what is special to me....hmmm

    You know the lady that did my hair, I use to go to her just so I could talk goats. She had none but she loved to hear about mine.
    Hey some people put their kids on the mirror, aren't those goats like your kids?

    Glad to hear it went well Stacey, it's that time of year when everyone is so busy with the Holidays that the small businesses slow down....heres to hope that the New Year brings lots of people needing trims!! BTW...I agree, put pics of the girls up, great conversations come from curious people and besides you may end up with a few "goat customers"!

    oh wow it has been that long?

    yah I was telling my dad that I try to keep it positive and think "wow soon I will be doing things as they are." it is just the ease around the shop and comfortability level with everyone that I miss at this moment. :/ but that will come I know
