After years of working in the corporate world, Spa Kneads owner Daychell Bridges left her days at a desk for a business that empowers young professionals through physical healing.
Life Before Spa Kneads
When I graduated from college in 2004, I had no idea my love for healing would turn into a career. For years, I worked as a collections supervisor in Dallas, and enjoyed the benefits of a corporate job. At the same time, I worked part-time at some of the top spas in Dallas, servicing large accounts, spa parties, and athletes.
The more I learned about the benefits of massage therapy, the more I wanted to bring massage services to the corporate environment. After months of planning and debating, I decided to quit my job and start Spa Kneads.
What Is Spa Kneads?
Spa Kneads is a concierge wellness program by way of massage. We are a team of licensed, insured, and coached therapists who bring massages to your office or event. All our clients leave with a positive experience not just a product. Doing so ensures that they will continue seeking massages and sharing Spa Kneads with their family and friends. Massages relieve tension, relax the mind, and leave employees ready to work. Wherever you work, it’s important to feel good, physically and emotionally.
While my old job left me tired, my business combined my love of massages and career. I work from home, support my children with the business, and will eventually pass it on to them. With every appointment, I get to improve my client’s work productivity, boost their morale, and leave them with a positive impression of massage therapy. It has been an exciting three years of launching and watching Spa Kneads grow.
Growing a Business
But growing a business after years of working in the corporate world isn’t easy. I had to get a business mentor and real growth set goals. Without these goals, I knew my business would fail. Things in the business are constantly changing and they may not always go as planned. When things didn’t go as planned, I look at the challenge as something new to accomplish. Although some challenges may be more difficult and take longer to resolve, there’s always a silver lining in owning my own business. As Spa Kneads keeps growing, I know my plans for the company will pay off.
