I can’t believe where time has gone! We had our amazing Grand Opening Red Tie Event on July 1st at our beautiful new home in Orchard Plaza next to Eat’n Park and Big Lots. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if we would have a successful turnout. (My nerves got the best of me!) I had hoped we would have at least 50 people show up to support our new home and was blown away by the 200 people that walked through our doors that day! We had a blast decked out in our red gowns and raising $1,000 for the American Red Cross. Very much a day for tears of joy! It has been wonderful to watch my team grow in our new home. They deserve to be enrolling and educating in this phenomenal state of the art facility! I am so very fortunate to have such a supportive and amazing group of people standing with me and believing in this dream.
Thank you all so very much for your support and confidence in our decision to move our location. It has been a huge success! We are meeting new guests daily and growing our student count, looking forward to them becoming family members to our TSPA.
You know it took 3 years and 7 denials from banks L before I got approved for the loan for our new location. (Thank you, Renae and Rich, from FNB!) Some days were seriously tougher than others!! I learned humility, dignity, perseverance and above all determination to never quit, never give up on making your dream a reality. I also learned that if I limit my dreams, I limit myself! I keep this quote in a frame above my desk to remind me daily of the struggles I have been through to make my dream a reality. I think Mr. and Mrs. S are smiling down on our success?!
We are literally growing daily right now. It is so cool to see our students in the salon training area turning their education into reality for each guest. I am blown away by how knowledgeable they have become in their careers and they haven’t even graduated yet! It is a wonderful thing to see!
