Ok. I am mildly exaggerating
But it kind of feels that way when you’re in debt and your financial situation hits a deathcon level. Right?
This month the mortgage company tells me if they’ve approved my loan modification. Drumroll please.
This could be a huge game changer. It will definitely be a fork in the road either way. And I have no choice. I have to just keep trying. I have to just keep trying to make this happen.
I have a list of about 300 people on an email chain. I was thinking of offering a discount rate for July. Corny as it sounds I was going to label it the “let’s free ourselves from the crap we don’t need inside of us” sale. I boldly talk about digestion and poop in my emails and newsletters and some people really take offense to that, or just all marketing/informative material, or just me, or who knows.
I was going to offer a blow-out sale rate. People don’t realize I have a bottom line number for when my time and effort and supplies and licensing and other business expenses make it not worth taking people. I mean I could make $20 an hour doing eBay if I hustled a lot more. But then I’d have to dedicate time to that business almost exclusively. I can’t do things half ass and I can’t do it all perfectly. So I know my allotment of hours for each business.
I am being very logical and concise. I just didn’t anticipate the resistance local people would have to colon hydrotherapy here. If I was in Portland I am positive I would be booked solid. But I’m kind of stuck in this weird vortex of situations. Anything else I want to do to improve my business would require spending more money. Money I don’t have, as my mortgage company will tell you.
So anyway. I was going to offer an $80 special. For the Portland area it is a very good price for open systems. That’s a price you would only maybe get at a few places with buying a package. This is the thing. This is why I think I have a hard time getting clients. I don’t like dragging people here. I want people to really want to be here and I want to give them space to feel comfortable with that decision.
In Portland it’s so cute and I appreciate so much that people see the real value to doing it consistently when they have digestive issues. Some of my clients I would love to see every two weeks or so but they can’t seem to justify the cost. While in Portland people seem more understanding that this is part of your overall health and well being and day to day optimal living.
Especially people with digestive issues or degenerative illnesses. Like I don’t see how they are thinking they can not manage to do these. “You’re body is compromised, get the toxins out faster and better”. It is NOT BRAIN SURGERY. Plus… it’s pipes. Pipes people. Simple basic understanding. They get clogged. They need to be cleaned and maintained. This is what I tell people. Even pipes that run clear water get sediment build-up. And what dont we put in our bodies?
I can talk about digestion all day. I am putting my everything into it. I really don’t get why I am not making money.
Anyway. Discount. Emailed. Soon. That was the whole point of that.
This is my 3:30 am stoned delirium. I have to go to work soon. Lol.
Just another day.
