STUDIO AVENUE B
Avenue B Salon's Fresh Start!
Hello all! I have done it again... In case you are wondering what in the world am I talking about! I have moved my salon to a new location. Due to unfortunate economic turns my previous location was taken back from my landlord where I leased. The building was rumored in early 2013 that my space was going to be leased to a new business. There was a lot of confusion and lack of communication during that time. I was also focused on my family and planning my wedding. Finally, I was in contact with my landlord and he told me it was a possibility that he would move another business in my space and 3 other units. Basically, removing current tenants from their business'. I couldn't think of anything other than "SHADY"! Therefore, I decided I better protect myself and cover my asset! As unfair as I know this situation is, I didn't back down.
Meanwhile, knowing the end of my stay could be anytime, I decided to look around the Campbell area hoping I could stay close. Rent was changing, and I was not able to stay in the area in my price range on short notice. I love Campbell and didn't want to say goodbye. However, I had the option to keep my business and go small. I thought of something different, to work independently for the first time ever! I found a single unite/office space in the Rose Garden of San Jose not far from my Campbell business. It was hard to think of the idea to break up my styling team and work solo, but it was a good option for my family and I.
I have been working in my new location for almost two months now. Thanks to my family in helping with the move and minor construction I am proud to say how much I enjoy the intimate setting. I am in charge of myself and my clientele. Noticeable differences in the way business is running currently and how it was previously, mean so much. Thank you all my love and support in my life and career. This experience is just another path in my life's journey. I will ever so adore and cherish these moments in my life.
