Hustle (job)

Owner

What do you do?  

I am the brand developer & management.

Why do you do it?

I do it because I love it. I love my city and I wanted to bring something I felt was needed here!

What was your Catalyst? (How did you get started?)

I worked for medical spas my entire career - I found there to be a major need for a consistent, affordable way for everyone to receive skincare. So I searched, I traveled to New York & DC to see what businesses were offering this. I found many monthly membership skincare places and I decided to bring it to my own city.

What’s a common misconception or unknown aspect of what you do?

We are not a cheap facial. Our facial is just as involved as any facial you've had before. We just provide it at a lower price so you can commit to it monthly.

What’s the most challenging part of your Hustle?

Right now, being a new business and opening during a time we are encouraged not to connect.

What’s the most valuable piece of business advice/insight that’s helped you?

To trust your vision, to follow your brand. To BE ORIGINAL, even its harder. Don't copy it will never feel authentic, and your content will be much better!
