Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Alexandra Kalwitz, Owner of Skin and Muscles LLC., located in Denver, CO, USA.

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

Massage therapy and skin care services! Our customers are usually acne clients who have been beaten down by dermatologists and med spas who have just screwed them out of money without teaching them to heal the root cause, or people just coming in for relaxing treatments.

Tell us about yourself

I’ve always wanted to own my own business; I’m sort of the jack of all trades, enneagram seven if you will 😆. So I was just sort of waiting till I found something. I was willing to give it my all… once I felt massage therapy, it was game over! I’m naturally nurturing, always sort of been the go-to friend to listen to, so it felt right! I’ve had a lot of life situations happen where eastern medicine worked better than western medicine too! I used to have acne, so getting into skincare just made sense before starting my own business, and it’s the two best things I’ve ever done in my life 🥰.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Taking risks! It’s very taboo in my family to be so risky! I’ve seen and been taught to play it safe my whole life.

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

Taxes. I hate dealing with them, and I refuse to 😂 and maybe not make any money at first, but everything else is fun. I’m definitely not in it for the money anyways. I’m in it for the freedom.

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

That’s tough because everyone is so different… my brain doesn’t process negativity as other people do… but I’d sayyyy be authentic, be consistent, andddd you got to risk it to get the biscuit.

Where can people find you and your business?
