I’m a salon owner and we are now closed until further notice. I have been trying to come up with ways to alleviate the stress of rent on my independent contractors while still being able to stay afloat. Here are some of my ideas so far:

1. If you offer your renters a “free week” of rent per year. Have them use it now.

2. Depending on how long we are forced to be closed, instead of asking for back pay on rent upfront – I thought they could “re-pay” by selling retail and using their commission as a form of payment. This way we can also help our retail suppliers (and reps) with a boost in sales after everything goes back to normal.

I agree this is very difficult to navigate, but we need to think positively and think for the greater of all.

I appreciate everyone’s ideas! We’re getting somewhere!
