    The Sugar Show Ep 12: So I Started My Sugar Business…Now What? Tips for Effectively Streamlining Your Services
    Shannon Sophia, The SugarMama®
    Overview
    Are you a seasoned sugar professional who is swamped with work as the world starts to reopen? Are clients flocking to your doorstep after months of hearing about the wonders of sugar through friends, family and social media?
    This is a great problem to have…right? Even though it’s a wonderful feeling to have a solid client base, it’s also exhausting when you can’t accommodate everyone who’s seeking out your services.
    If this problem feels familiar, you’ll definitely want to tune into this week’s episode of The Sugar Show. Here’s a sneak peek into the SugarMama’s playbook for streamlining and expanding your sugar business.


    First, take a moment to recognize your success. There was once a time when you didn’t know how you would get to this point, and now you have. Be proud of yourself and acknowledge that you are going to overcome this hurdle, too!Streamline your business. Most of the time, immediately looking to expand is a mistake. First, look to the ways that you can streamline your business operation and make your hours count!Bring on an assistant! Most people don’t need to hire another aesthetician in the early stages of their business. Instead, bring on someone who can take administrative duties off your plate, so you can really focus on your sugar ball.Expand your business…but only after you have completed all of the above steps! We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to attend to your own house before you start bringing new hires into the mix.Remember how far you’ve come and know that there is a clear path to managing your client base, so you can find joy both inside and outside of your business. If you need additional support along the way, know that the Sugar Tribe is always here to help. Cheers to you!
    Quotes
    “I want you to stop. I don’t want you to stop sugaring, but I want you to stop. I want you to close the door of your treatment room, I want you to sit on the bed or sit on the comfy chair that’s inside your room, and I want you to recognize your success.” (5:29-5:47) → AUDIOGRAM“For right now, I want you to unleash that feeling of responsibility and streamline you.... I want to ask you to really be mindful of what your day is like. Are you getting enough sleep? Are you starting your day with a morning routine and gratitude?....Take a moment and breathe and say, ‘Ok, how can I be smart in my day today?’” (11:20-12:13)“You do not have to add on every single client in your city to double your income and make your time smarter.” (16:23-16:33) “I know that you might be tired and bringing on more people sounds like the solution, but it isn’t necessarily the solution. It really is a skillset to manage other people.” (24:53-25:08)

    Quotes
    “I want you to get sugared. If you haven’t already experienced body sugaring for yourself, I want you to find a skilled, certified sugaring professional near you and get yourself sugared...so that you can experience what your clients will be experiencing.” (2:09-2:33)“Make sure that you establish a base of clients and sugar fans. Create that buzz, have a baseline of people that can sing your praises, encourage and reward your fans for spreading the good work about sugar because once they experience the difference, they’re going to be hooked. So having a loyal foundation will be the stronghold for you to consider the next steps of starting your own business.” (8:56-9:22)“Get [your clients] to understand that sugar is the best choice because (1) it’s not hot, it’s never going to burn your clients, (2) it’s all natural, it’s just lemon, sugar and water, (3) there’s going to be less ingrowns because we remove the hair out in the direction of hair growth and we’re not traumatizing the skin, (4) it’s great for sensitive skin, so those people who can’t wax can usually sugar, (5) there’s less mess, it’s sanitary, it’s antibacterial, antimicrobial. There’s so many reasons to love sugar. Really wrap your arms around that for yourself and for your clients.” (12:20-13:04)Links

    What to Know About a Trademark for Your Business

    What to Know About a Trademark for Your Business

    Have you taken the necessary steps to make sure your sugar business is protected with the appropriate trademark?  We want to help estheticians, cosmetologists, sugaring professionals and beauty babes feel confident knowing that the brand they are building is available and protected, so you can sleep at night knowing that you don’t have to be afraid of a cease and desist letter.

    In this episode of The Sugar Show, SugarMama Shannon O’Brien sits down with her legal guide, Joey Vitale, to discuss the importance of doing due diligence on your brand before you spend years building it.  You’ll learn why the trademark research is a crucial first step, and things to watch out for when you are starting your trademark journey.

    Quotes:

    “Applying for a trademark is the best way to make sure that your brand is available and not stepping on anybody else's toes. So yes, it costs money to file this application. But it's a win win either way, because either you know that it's available and you're protecting it, or you're learning that it's not available.” (15:03)


    “Trademarks help you create a powerful brand” (17:36)

    “The most valuable part of what you can pay a trademark attorney to do for you, is not the application. It's running a strong search, and then being strategic on how to fill out the application based on that search.” (25:08)

    The SugarShow: S3E8 Is It Really Possible to Permanently & Naturally Remove Hair?

    The SugarShow: S3E8 Is It Really Possible to Permanently & Naturally Remove Hair?

    I get asked this question all the time! For those who are scared of laser hair removal or don't want to pay the crazy dollars to get it done, this episode is for you.
    Sugaring professionals have been wondering not only about Epilfree as a natural way to stunt hair growth, but whether or not they can use the product in the sugar treatment room.  If we have gloves on both hands, and sugar in one of those hands, how do we apply the serum quickly?
    How exactly does this product work?
    How long until our clients can see results?
    Does it really work?
    Rene' Stufano is the owner of  E.F.Tropics, an importing and distribution company located in Jupiter, Florida. It is considered a "Happy Culture Company" because the happiness of our workmates and customers is our number one priority. Our brands include Epilfree non-laser hair removal, The Illuminating Collection, and O2SkinPro. All are unique, natural, and non-toxic, delivering amazing results. 
    So many ways to learn more about EpilFree!
