And the day begins...

As I try to get the studio ready I have made SO many trips to Lowe's and Home Depot that I know them well enough to practically work there now. There's always some supply one or the other contractor needs. I've become quite a fan of these places actually, except for the customer service at Home Depot. Finding an employee to help you at Home Depot is a lot like attempting to find a winning lottery ticket. So I've started to divert most of my business to Lowe's instead. If I had time, I would totally look for the corporate office address of Home Depot and write them a letter to let them know exactly why they have lost my business.

I have also been so busy with the studio set up that I have fallen behind on other aspects of the business. I have transferred all of the tuitions for the next six weeks from the PayPal account that takes them (does my credit card processing) to my bank account. But I just realized that next session I have not two employees to pay but four! Because two trainees start on the payroll this month, even though they are still in training. So I need to break out excel and figure out exactly how much each girl will make in the next 6 weeks and then transfer all that money now into the payroll checking account. I also have to figure out how much sales tax I collected on all the classes and transfer that into the savings account I use to hold money I intend to pay taxes with. Hopefully this post will remind me to do that the next time I check LJ.


Finding a HD employee that can help you and knows how to make keys is even harder. I've never been to a HD with enough employees.
I've had poor customer service at both places, but less at Lowe's.


No need to look up the address--You can reach the CEO of Home Depot at Frank_Blake@homedepot.com I encourage you to send him a note as he is constantly looking for feedback like this. Make sure you tell him which store it was.
Wow, thanks!
