#offTopicTuesday Just a day at the nail salon
Hey Y'all!!...Yeah I know, I'm always talmbout " I will not be waiting so long to write another post"🤔 (sad face). Well I won't say anything I'll just do. So, what's your favorite thing to do on your day of pampering? For me, I love getting a good pedicure and that's what I did. I have to take care of my feet (and hands) at all times. It's so necessary for us that have professions that have you on your feet all day. I work in healthcare (nurse) and do hair as well. Both require a lot of time on your feet; so it feels good to have someone rub on your feet a lil bit. Not to mention its wonderful for circulation. However, my thoughts for this post came about while in a nail salon(Asian) and for the 1st time I really put thought into how I've never seen another Asian supporting the nail shop as a customer. Really didn't dawn on me so much because I've been such a faithful customer at a very diverse nail salon in which I was able to support women of color in the nail industry over the past few years. I bring this up because I wonder if the Asian community ever has the arguments of "we need to support our Asian businesses" like the African American community has to ask us to #supportblackbusiness. Do you feel like Asians are starting to feel a threat of other ethnic origins? Just a random thought for today. I will say that the nail salon is a pretty decent place to network though for any of you business owners.
