As my spa business has grown, it has become incredibly self-sufficient. I rely on my management team to handle the majority of spa operations and keep me informed. I will still check schedules and ensure guest satisfaction, as well as monitor any pertinent reports, marketing opportunities etc. It’s rewarding knowing that the team, combined with the systems in place, ensure that the spa will continue to operate successfully – with or without my presence."
