From Home Business to Healthcare Center, Small Business Management Program Helps Businesses Grow
When massage therapist Jenn Visser moved her business out of her sun room at home and into a building in Seaside in 2015, she had no idea she’d be creating a wellness community.
Now, Jenn works alongside three fellow massage therapists and a skin care specialist at Healthy Hub.
“I really wanted to build a community here where people want to grow with their wellness and health,” she said.
For help establishing her business, Jenn went to the SBDC and took the Small Business Management program. She enjoyed having the camaraderie of other business owners in the program. The SBDC helped her balance all the aspects of running a business, including social media, payment platforms and finances.
“All this stuff is really confusing so it was really great to have direction broken down into easy steps instead of feeling overwhelmed,” Jenn said said.
She met with an adviser who helped her stay on track and keep the momentum of her business going.
“It’s always nice to have a person to bounce ideas off of that has experience,” Jenn said.
Healthy Hub offers various massages, facials, cupping, craniosacral therapy and health coaching. Jenn also leads community programs like sugar detoxes.
