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

The Salt Room is a wellness center specializing in Halotherapy, Massages, Facials, and Meditation events. It is a one-stop shop for all self-care needs. A place where you come to connect with your mind, body, and soul. Our customers are those who understand the importance of self-care and need a safe space to heal, connect with themselves, and rejuvenate.

Tell us about yourself

The Salt Room was a result of my spiritual journey back to myself. I was looking for a place to heal and restore my mind-body-soul connection. It is built with love and intention for others to come for healing.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I have several degrees and awards; however, my biggest accomplishment is seeing my customers walk away smiling with a healing glow. Over 40000 customers serviced since 2014 is the true accomplishment of my mission and my purpose.

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

Wearing multiple hats and not being able to turn off your mind. It’s like a phone application that’s always running. However, the rewards outweigh the hardships of entrepreneurship.

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

  1. Start now!
  2. Start on something that you feel passionate about!
  3. Don’t give up. Everything is figureoutable!
