Nature of business: Day spa. Massages, facials, waxing, body wraps and body scrubs.
How’s business? I’m very excited to say it’s growing even in a weakened economy.
One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: Massage is not only for pampering and relaxation; it is a therapeutic option for muscular and other kinds of pain.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Ashiatsue bar massage. Standing over the client, I use my feet and vary my body weight to deliver just the right amount of pressure – everything from deep heel point to broad whole foot pressure.
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Make a business plan. Location, location, location. Talk to others in a similar business and others in the community. Join the chamber of commerce. Borrow as little money as possible. Make it fun and go for it.
Your first job: Dunkin’ Donuts. We got to eat as many as we wanted!
Your role model (in business or in life generally): Family. I come from a family of entrepreneurs.
The key to a successful business is: Being passionate about your work.
