I am going to be moving to Austin next year. I am a newly licensed Master Esthetician in VA. I learned that I need to take the stateboard  exam in Texas. I am looking to get into a plastic surgeon office and i have a medical background (not nurse). I have taken a laser hair removal class in VA as well. I wanted to verify that I can do laser hair removal, injections, etc with training from a physician and under them. I was told by another person to look at a texas laser institute. I wasn’t sure if that would be recommend before looking for a job. Any advice would be great. Thanks!

Hello TE's!  I am moving to El Paso in August!  Any advice on what to do when I get there.  I am worried I might have to go back to school.  Texas training hours are about 120-150 hours more than ours here in California.  Hopefully, my working hours will count.  Has anyone transplanted to Texas?  Is the re-licensing for there difficult?  I am also considering converting my garage into my salon....any ideas on that???  Thanks all.

Hello all. I am moving to El Paso from Los Angeles. I'm cconsidering setting up my garage as my salon. Does anyone know anything about that city's market and does anyone have a home based business? How is it working for you?

The LivingSocial deal expired a week ago.  Sold 82, 50 redeemed....of the 50, 8 rebooked and 4 have already been in twice and 2 referrals coming in next week. This will help as we go into the slow summer.

@Ruby-the Groupon No Show policy may void the entire amount-I charge for the service requested- whatever that is - not a flat rate. The company where I rent space sells Gift Certificates and that is also their policy, so whoever the appointment is made with get the money, also subject to losing it w/out 48 hour cancellation (of course their are times when a true emergency happens then that's different).

Thanks, Ivana.  I will look into for future promotions.  I called her but had to leave a  message....advised the Groupon could be used a the coupon on the service the deal was for and that she had a $50 no show fee due because she no showed on her reservation in March 2012.  Asked her to return my call, but no call from her yet.

@Nikki....I really didn't have a lot of problem clients. Retained 10 that purchased the groupon. I look at Groupon, Living Social, Urban Delight as advertisting/marketing agencies. Currently I cannot afford to come out of pocket to pay an agency to help with my marketing and advertisting even though that was my previous career....still need help. I agree, our services are valuable and I haven't discounted any service that I lost money on....the margin may not be 45-50%, but I haven't lost.

As for the Deal coupons, I stop doing those a year or so ago.  Too many problem clients. Not exactly the kind of clients that will commit and they will not pay full price for anything. They are just deal-bargain hunters.

I feel that our services are too valuable for that deep of discounts.



Comment by Ivana Sorrell on May 16, 2013 at 10:45am

I have listed on my website... it you no show you forfeit any coupon... you had blocked that time for here and she did not show... that is not your fault and then a year later??? she is hoping you forgot she no showed

I used Uraban Delight a few times and got mostly people who are looking for coupons... and only a hand full that were looking for a new home... in the state of texas you have to honor a voucher as cash... and apply towards... but if they don't show up you can forfeit the voucher... there is also a site called which is like your own groupon... and you get all your money... not just half... it takes a little while to enter all your clients... but well worth it to run specials, promotions, and birthday greetings... good luck
