A Valentine's surprise for Rebecca
Posted on 14th February 2014 by Fleur Murphy
Balance Beauty and Nails owner Rebecca Hannan has received the Valentine’s gift of a lifetime from her generous partner James Maruyama: a Shortcuts subscription!
The couple spent their Valentine’s Day evening sipping champagne and admiring the view from their favourite restaurant, Angel, on the waterfront at Queenscliff – the perfect setting for a special Valentine’s surprise.
James said he chose to surprise Rebecca with Shortcuts because she had always talked about how much her small salon business would benefit from the software.
“Rebecca has been raving about how efficient Shortcuts is, so with Valentine’s Day coming up I thought it would be the perfect chance to treat her,” James said.
“The software is easy to navigate, has exceptional functionality, and will enable Rebecca to switch from a paper appointment book to a digital one.
“She is looking forward to spending less time doing business manually, so that she can focus on providing great quality treatments to her clients.
“Shortcuts will also help grow the business, as Rebecca will be able to use the built-in marketing tools to offer her clients special promotions via email and SMS.”
With more than ten years industry experience behind her, Rebecca set up a home salon six months ago, hoping to establish an independent name for herself and build her own brand.
Having worked for high-profile salons including Ella Bache, Rebecca chose to freelance because it gives her the flexibility to decide how and when she works.
“For Rebecca, having the freedom to make business decisions for herself is really important,” James said.
“Hopefully this little Valentine’s surprise will enable her to take another step in the direction towards running a successful independent business.
“Rebecca, if you’re reading this, I wanted to say I love you babe – happy Valentine’s Day!”
