All of these events are the result of not having a messaging strategy for your spa.

Self-Care is Wealth Care (WE2)
It's a fairly common practice for spa owners and professionals to put the needs of others - especially their clients, employees and business - ahead of their own. From skipped lunches and sleepless nights to cancelled vacations and forfeited paychecks, our self-care often slides to the bottom of the priority list, if not off it completely. As natural caregivers, we think we must put everyone else first and forget to fill our own cups. However, many have realized during the time of COVID these practices are not sustainable and that we cannot survive on fumes. Now is the time in which YOU as a spa professional realize caregiving starts with YOU. It is also a perfect time to create or reinvent your business in ways that celebrate, invigorate and elevate YOUR mind, body and spirit. Join Felicia Brown for a powerful exploration of how to move from chasing trends and fighting fires to creating an authentic business which capitalizes on every square inch of joy and abundance possible. Life is too short to do otherwise!
