What's your business, and who are your customers?

We support body positivity, always.

Tell us about yourself

I've always been motivated to create a space and environment that feels welcoming and inclusive. A place that makes people feel good about themselves. It's an amazing feeling to be able to brighten someone's day with something as simple as an airbrush tan.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

We take pride in our quality of products and services, friendly customer service, and clean/bright/welcoming atmosphere. Our clients feel comfortable coming to us and trust us with everything from their lashes, skincare, and hair removal services. Bronzed is colorful, natural, inclusive, and relatable.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

It's easy to become reactive to suggestions and especially to rejection and to start to lose your way. It's hard not to get discouraged. But every experience and conversation is an opportunity to learn.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Don't ride the highs or the lows. There will be times of success, and there will be times of failure. Both are important.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I'm lucky to have great people around me.
