Jaime Schrabeck, Ph.D. performs all the consulting on behalf of Precision Nails. Below, she answers some frequently asked questions about her customized services.
What’s your approach to consulting?
I believe that doing what you love should bring joy and prosperity, not problems and hardship. Most problems in the beauty business (tax audits, consumer harm complaints, bad investments, salon failures, etc.) could be avoided with proper guidance. Ultimately, it’s wiser to position yourself for more rewards than challenges.
What’s your role?
Should we decide to work together, I will serve as a trusted adviser who’ll carefully consider your ideas, evaluate their merits (and faults) and make recommendations in your best interests. Furthermore, it’s my responsibility to challenge your assumptions, provide valuable information and conserve your resources as if they were my own.
What kinds of projects do you work on?
The professional beauty industry presents many opportunities, and the projects I undertake include working with:
- potential salon/spa owners, especially those with no industry experience
- existing salon owners who need to reorganize their salons to become viable
- manufacturers who want new products tested
- talented professionals who want to become successful educators
- event organizers who want to increase participation
- students who want expert training before entering the workforce
What do you charge?
Each project is unique; pricing depends on the scope of your project and invoiced on an incremental basis. Work begins once an invoice is paid. You maintain control of your project, budget and timeline, and will continue to engage my services only as needed.
When are you available?
Please contact me through email so we can determine whether your project needs and my availability are compatible.
Will you travel to help me?
To conserve your resources, I prefer to work remotely whenever possible. However, when necessary, travel can be arranged to facilitate your project.
Am I obligated to take your advice?
Having paid for my work, you’re entitled to accept or ignore my advice as you choose; it’s your project, and your choices and execution will determine whether it succeeds or fails.
