Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in marketing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Candace Holyfield, Founder of Six Figure Spa Chick, located in Atlanta, GA, USA.

Six Figure Spa Chick is the number one marketing firm for spa professionals. We support estheticians and nurses to open/operate successful spas with unorthodox marketing strategies to stay in business for the long term.
Tell us about yourself
I went to a massage therapy school in 2010. I love this industry so much. My first claim to fame was Groupon. I started helping other spa pros earn six figures with Groupon. I turned it into a full business Six Figure Spa Chick back in 2016. I once was really broke, and I never wanted to return there, so old struggle memories keep me super motivated to work and be a high performer.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is helping 20-plus other spa pros earn their first million dollars as business owners.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
One of the hardest is work/life balance. Often, work takes over our lives. We don’t have time for family or friends. I finally created a great balance so I could enjoy both each month.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Establish business credit early, so it’s available when you need it.
- Create policies, contracts, SOP, and NDA to ensure everyone understands the assignment at your company.
- All service-based providers should have a product so you are not trading all your time for money.
