Wow 70 pts in 3 days?!?!?! That's unheard of!! Talk about having a back to back schedule!
Sounds exhausting, but well worth it!! I would love to have clientele lined up like that! :bowingpur I'm impressed! Did you have an event?
I work straight commission, so I take a percentage off of the gross as well and work as a 1099. I think I need to find a good CPA to head me in the right direction with tax deductions. I'm keeping everything on file for write offs, but I've been told two different things about keeping track of mileage.
Contracting has been more lucrative for me compared to working open to close hours at an hourly, or booked and non-booked rates. It's great going into work only when I have clients scheduled and leaving when I'm done! I lucked out with this place and I'm not bound by any type of contract.
I make more selling laser packages b/c I get a larger cut, but I love injecting. There is an artistry in applying injectables and I get greater satisfaction performing those types of treatments vs. lasers. Don't get me wrong I do like lasering, but there is so much more to injecting.
I would totally agree with your comment about RN's having an artistic eye and some docs not wanting to give up control. I've also found truth in the comment about aesthetics being just as much about sales as it is about taking care of clients. A lot of times you've either got it or you don't. Injecting can be learned, but you have a greater successful outcome and it's a lot easier when you have a natural ability/artistic eye. I have worked with people that force the learning process, become too technical, and don't know what they're looking at--I would not let them inject me!
I'm glad that things are getting crazy for you!! Busy is good especially right now! Hope you're enjoying Vegas!!
