Last semester, Paige’s Nail Kitchen (PNK) was featured in the newspaper, so how is the business holding up three months later?
Owner Paige Light now has 17 consistent clients. In an English 2010 class, there were four clients talking about her business. Paige has successfully become the go to nail technician in Ephraim.
For the one year anniversary of PNK’s Instagram page, she threw a party to appreciate her clients in a unique way. At her apartment she had countless treats available and every client that showed up would get $5 off their next service. Paige is grateful for the loyalty her clients have shown her.
This past year has taught her the importance of consistency and communication with clients. She said, “Consistency is key when it comes to building my business.” She has to be consistent with the posts she makes and communicate with clients so they can make things work.
Her greatest experiences with clients are when they both cry while nails are being done and become friends outside of their appointments.
One of her favorite parts of doing nails is being able to hear about other peoples’ lives. Her clients’ stories have helped build her character. Another of her favorite parts is when she gets to create unique designs with her clients.
Social media has helped Paige be a part of not only the nail community but the small business community. She has been able to reach out and ask for advice from other business owners. They are able to help each other grow and achieve success.
One piece of advice she would have given herself last year is, “Invest in a scheduling app or better said invest for your future.” Now she is able to see the big picture rather than just satisfy her short term goals.
