Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in beauty and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Angela Ervin, Founder of JYvae Spa And Wellness, located in Kennesaw, GA, USA.

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

My business is Esthetics/Skincare, including massages. My customers are people who desire skincare products and services, and massage and rebalancing chakras and healing.

Tell us about yourself

After a very nasty divorce, I was an unhoused single mother attending school. I graduated at the top of my class with honors. I later took my skills, knowledge, and expertise in the beauty industry and created my first skincare product, later creating and launching my entire brand. Soon after, I open my first Beauty Spa and Wellness Center. I'm motivated every day by my clients and my passion for seeing my client's skin healthy and vibrate. My children are also a source of motivation for me and the drive behind my accomplishments.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is launching my skincare line and opening Jyvae Spa and Wellness, located in Kennesaw, Georgia.

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

Long hours and not enough time in the day to do my own personal self-care regimen.

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

  1. Do thorough research on your desired niche.
  2. Take classes in your niche if and when necessary to fine-tune your craft.
  3. Stay focused on your "why" and goals, and never let anyone tell you it can't be done.

Where can people find you and your business?
