Taking care of yourself and your tattoo business

Posted on: November 13th, 2013 by Hayley James No Comments

A happy "you" results in a happy customer in your tattoo business. The happy person serving the customer NEEDS to take care of himself first before he can take care of his customers. In reality, you are there to serve and not to be served. You are the one who need to fill a certain expectation and not the other way around.

Therefore steps must be taken to make sure that you are being serviced too.  It is important that you continually address your emotional, physical and mental needs because you are serving your customers.

How to take care of yourself so that you can take care of your customers?

You have probably developed the habit of fulfilling everyone else’s needs before your own. You have probably been convinced to think that if you don’t take care of other people’s needs, you are going to lose your business and your customers.

We are not saying here that you do not take care of your customers. The line of reasoning is you do not put yourself in the backseat and ignore your needs because you are too preoccupied taking care of your customers. Take care of your needs before you take care of someone else.

Here are some practical things you often ignore which can tremendously help you recharge and regain your focus to serve your customers better: 

  • Don’t be everything to everybody. Learn to delegate. Learn to say "no."
  • Don't forget to give attention to your health and physical condition.
  • Continuously grow mentally. Engage your mind. Read a book. Learn a new skill. Spend time on a hobby.
  • Take care of your spiritual needs.
  • Spend time alone.  Create a "me" schedule apart from your daily routine.
  • Have fun.
  • Build relationships
  • Don't forget you are important, too.
