I'm so excited to finally share what has kept me so busy the last few months. Actually about 6 months or so. I created and launched a mobile spray tanning business....Tailored Tan! Since launching in April I have been so blessed with such a great response.
I've always wanted to own a business of some sort, but nothing really seem to fit. It all started last summer when I was preparing to be in a friends wedding. The wedding was set for early October and we were wearing strapless chocolate brown dresses. I knew by October I would be white and pasty and in need of a little color. I had already sworn off tanning beds and was in search of a great fake tan. I soon found there were few options. I knew I couldn't just do self tanner as I would never reach the back of me for the strapless dress without creating a hot mess. I decided to try a spray tan. I put a post out on Facebook asking my friends for suggestions for a spray tan and the results were less than exciting. Most people were terribly disappointed in their spray tans...especially those from a spray tan booth. Augh...not what I wanted to hear. So, there went the spray tan booth idea, so I went in search of someone that can spray me directly. Again, I was disappointed as I only found one option. It was at a very nice high end spa and the tan turned out really good. I was relieved to find an option, but worried that I didn't have a chance to try it prior to the week leading up to the wedding. I ended up being very pleased with the results!
As I was searching for the perfect tan, I started thinking maybe this could be a business to launch. Apparently this type of business was needed here. Then the light bulb went off and I thought MOBILE business would be a great option as I couldn't find any mobile spray tanning options. That's when I started my research on spray tanning businesses. Equipment, tanning solutions, training...it was all so overwhelming and so hard to find information and help. I wanted to do it right and learn from the best, but that proved to be difficult. Months later I was informed, prepared, trained and ready to go. When I was finally ready to announce Tailored Tan, I created a Facebook page and the response was been amazing! Gotta love free advertisement!
It seem once spring was nearing our family life kicked into high gear. As I mentioned my step daughter graduated from high school. Life has been a little crazy....especially juggling two jobs. I've missed blogging and ready to jump back in! I'm heading to a blogging workshop tomorrow and CAN NOT WAIT! It's the jump start I need and treating timing. Can't wait to post all about it.
Have a great weekend!
