How’s business: Bright and sunny

One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: The warm welcome you receive when you enter.

Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: A clean salon with top of the line beds and tanning products. Also, an awesome friendly staff with smiling faces.

Advice to young entrepreneurs: Always smile and be friendly to everyone you meet.

Your role model (in business or in life generally): My mom always taught me to respect others and be outgoing in life. Also to not sweat the small stuff and have faith in God. Glad I followed her advice.
