First tell us about your business--why and how did you start it?
I actually had no intentions of owning my own business I was very content in my job until the company I worked for was closing their doors. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do next until I was looking through the real estate book and seen 2 tanning salons for sale. My sister in law had several salons in Iowa and I told her about these stores and that were for sale and before I knew it I was in Iowa training and within 3 months I was part owner and managing my own stores. Although the industry has definitely changed I have tried to add some services to help with the time change. Along with the Mystic UV Free spray booth and the nail and waxing services I am still hanging in there. It has definitely been a journey the last 17 years with having two children who are now 14 and 10 owning my own business has allowed me to spend the needed time with my children while they grow up.
What services do you provide?
We provide many services from a Mystic UV Free spray tan, to regular UV tanning along with our fun private Nail booth located in the back of our salon. Providing a relaxing pedicure or manicure, We also offer waxing services.
Who can benefit from your services?
Many people benefit from our services all the way from people just needing a quick little color from the mystic spray tan which is instant color or someone just wanting some color before they go to that fun tropical vacation! We also have many people that come in not so much for the color but for the benefits of helping with arthritis pain or just some seasonal depression during the winter months. Anyone can pamper themselves in our Nail Booth all the way from little girls getting their princess nails on for that Disney Cruise to anyone getting that relaxing pedicure men or women.
What are some words of advice you can offer to other women in business?
As a business women, mom and wife you are only one person and can only do so much in a day so never give up and just do the best you can !
Why do you love The OWN?
I love The OWN, because it’s nice to be a part of something and know that your not alone with the day to day struggles of owning your own business.
