“I class myself as a nuts and bolts beauty therapy clinic. I do all the classic treatments with a few specialised treatments thrown in but none of the new-comer treatments.”

Me. I run my clinic from my home. I believe in professionalism but seek to provide a welcome environment where my clients can step off the treadmill of their busy lives for a while and be pampered. My clients will only ever deal with me so we build a wonderful rapport.
In my old beauty therapy business that I ran 11 years ago in Thames I won runner-up for most improved salon (Joyce Blok) and the following year I won most improved salon.
I love what I do and like to do things just how I want with emphasis on all points I consider to be important.
Getting my name out there was completely different this time round.

Last time in business there was no online presence.. No website or emails or Facebook. I used flyers, word of mouth and radio to advertise.

This time round I have had to learn all new online methods, not a strong point for me at all.

 I was approached by a Webb company and talked into spending on getting a new website. Best decision I ever made! I don’t market at all these days. My website does it all for me!
I have achieved my current business success due to the standard long hours and hard work. I’m not afraid to work outside my set hours and will always bend over backwards to help a client. The only real adversity that I needed to overcome was getting enough money to start up. My family came to my aid here.
I set myself a goal of having a full clientele and being fully booked by my 2 year mark. I achieved that goal with in 18 months.
That all my business dreams have come true. This time round I wanted it to be low stress and to stick to my guns about the style of service I wanted to provide. I have always been a people pleaser and you just can’t please everyone in this world. I have managed to attract a wonderful clientele who all love the way I do things
I try to up skill regularly where possible. I just recently went on a Reflexology workshop
Lots. Check out my Facebook and a few new ones on Google
I get to be the boss and run everything to my standards. I love what I do. I get enormous pleasure from helping people. I love the fact that I created this out of nothing.
I sponser as many local outfits as possible.
