Those who are making money and those who aren't.


Without a steady stream of customers, you don’t have a business. But, what most Nail Tech’s don’t realize is that the hardest part of starting a new Nail Business is finding customers and keeping your diary full.

Because the market place is flooded with so many Nail Tech’s, it is no longer enough just to be a good Nail Tech to succeed, you also have to know how to market your Nail Business. If your Nail Business is in any kind of trouble it is probably because you are struggling to find new customers or keep old ones coming back.

These days, Nail Tech’s who aren’t making the money they should are everywhere. They are in every town, city and province of South Africa. Is it their location or is it the economy? From our vast experience of working with Nail Tech’s we have noticed that in businesses that aren’t doing well, the Nail Tech is usually working hard on the wrong things and they are making predictable mistakes.

But, the Nail Tech’s who are succeeding are always business minded “go-getters” who focus marketing their nail business and promoting their services.

As a Nail Technician, you make money by exchanging your time (in the form of a nail service) for your customers money. This means you can immediately tell the health of your business by looking at how many clients you have booked for today, this week, this month and the next 3 months. No clients = no nail business. In fact, without Nail Clients you cannot be a Nail Technician.

Every year, Nail and Beauty Businesses start and fail in South Africa at an unbelievable rate. According to Statistics South Africa, 2064 businesses were liquidated between January 2018 to December 2018. This means that an average of 168 businesses closed every month over that period. In other words, 42 businesses liquidated every week. In short, one business failed every 4 hours!

According to StatisticsSA, the main reason why most of these businesses closed down was because of a lack of cashflow. No cashflow means there were no sales and there were no sales because there were no customers buying. Most Nail Tech’s we surveyed in the industry are not nearly as busy as they need to be, just take a look at these industry stats from Nail Tech’s we surveyed last year.

51% of Nail Techs service less than 10 clients a week
Only 25% of Nail Techs service between 11 and 20 clients a week
Only 15% of Nail Techs service more than 20 clients a week

who should come


From more than 16 years experience of training, coaching and working with Nail Technicians and Beauty Businesses from all over South Africa, this workshop was specifically and intentionally created to help three different types of Nail Technicians in the South African Industry. We call them Start-Ups, Fired-Up’s and Burn-Out’s. Read below for more information on what this workshops can do for you, regardless of what type of Nail Tech you are….


These Nail Tech’s have a dream, they’re passionate and excited but haven’t opened a business yet. Right now, they are doing something else – maybe they are employed in a Beauty Salon, or they work in a Corporate Office and want to follow their passion and open a business on the side that will replace their salary.

This marketing workshop will teach “Start-Ups” how to start-up correctly. You will learn how to build your business on paper, keep costs low, get customers and find ways to generate cash flow even before your doors open.


These Nail Tech’s have pulled the trigger and have started a nail business, but, they are not yet able to live off the income from their business. Their Nail Bar is up and running but these Nail Tech’s need industry specific coaching on how to stay focused, get their diary full, become more organised and make their business more profitable.

This workshop will help them implement high impact – low cost marketing that sells more and more products and services.  This workshop will help your Nail Business break through to the next level.


Burn-Out’s are Nail Tech’s who have been in business for some time, but they are tired and they have lost their passion.. They find themselves committed to a business that’s not giving them as much as they are giving it. They feel like the business owns them instead of the other way around.

This workshop will give these Nail Tech’s a literal shot in the arm and rejuvenate a failing enterprise. Ninety-five percent of all problems in business can be solved with good marketing. This workshop will help you fall in love with your business again and breathe new life (i.e. cashflow) into your Nail Bar.
