Like any job, Tabatha Coffey's mission to rescue troubled small businesses comes with its highs and lows.
"Sometimes the hardest thing is people being so resistant to me, because if I can't find a way to get through to them, I can't help them," the Aussie wonderwoman confides to Zap2it. "The hardest thing is trying to find their button. What is the button I can push that you will have your epiphany and you realize this has to change?"
In fact, getting a small business to cross over from the dark side becomes personal for the Tabatha Takes Over star. "I am always disappointed if people don't change. I get very emotionally vested in each of the businesses I go into. I really do think about them. When the cameras go down, I am still sitting in a hotel room thinking, 'What is the approach?' It doesn't go away for me."
But when someone sees the light, it's all rainbows and butterflies for Tabatha. Literally. "When I check back six or eight weeks later, I always have butterflies," she admits. "Even if they are willing to change, follow-through for some people is hard. That is the most gratifying thing, that I have been [able] to help someone keep their doors open. A lot of the salon owners have run with it and become incredibly successful."
