Calculating Fixed & Variable Spa Expenses
Learn about calculating fixed and variable expenses and factoring in big purchases into the equation. When spa owners know what their total expenses are, and the profit they want to pull, setting price levels becomes easy. Since the pandemic has caused the cost of business to change, it is a great time to run numbers and make sure skin care professionals are bringing in enough money. Drill the numbers down to the minute to easily calculate and ensure the business is on track.
