Nu Body's customer, Manee, was recently featured as the 'Person of the Week' in an article for the Asian Times newspaper weekend edition. Below is the article in it's entirety.
Passion for beauty turns to success
Many stylists leave beauty school with dreams of eventually opening their own salon, with their own clientele, own product lines and décor. The reality? Most of them will be stuck working for someone else, renting a chair, or giving up their dreams entirely.
But, that wasn’t what fate had in store for one Nubody customer. Manee is typical of today’s modern young women that enjoys keeping in shape, eating healthy and, along with her friends, loves regular trips to her local beauty salon. In fact, she loved her laser hair removal and skin treatments so much that when she learned the owner of the salon she frequented was thinking of retiring she bought the company!
“At first it was a bit intimidating owning a salon, I’ve never had any aesthetician training,” says Manee, “but, with the NuBody’s training program I was confident using the Dermalase IPL device within the first week.”
“Manee was a delight to work with,” recalls Amanda Hall, President of NuBody Equipment Sales. “She was so enthusiastic and asked many of the typical questions business owners new to the Dermalase laser might have. But, we provide complete training and certification and as well we walk each new owner through the process of setting up their first laser business – whether that’s a small home based spa or street front salon – they will be treating clients in no time at all.”
“What I also love is the regular customer support from NuBody,” says Manee, “every month I meet with a service representative and learn about new research in the industry as well as marketing advice on how to continue growing my business.”
Manee has been in business now for many years and each day is still as exciting as the first for her. “I might have fallen into this opportunity, but I’m so happy that I did and I wouldn’t change it for the world, “ Manee enthused.
“In today’s competitive job market, it’s tough to find full-time work in a career that you love, “ says Amanda, “Our customers come to us from diverse backgrounds - aestheticians, students, doctors, homemakers,” she says. “But all of them have the same goal: to create a successful business in an industry they are passionate about.When someone buys a Dermalase IPL, they are taking charge of their dreams. It’s not like operating a restaurant in a super competitive industry where you have to work from early morning to late nights. Our average client probably works less than 15 hours per week. The one thing you can’t buy in this life is more time and that’s likely the reason our business is booming”
Amanda also believes the popularity of the Dermalase IPL comes from giving people an opportunity to take control of their own careers. “Every time we sell a device, we are also introducing people to entrepreneurship” she says. “Opening a business can be scary, but at NuBody, we partner with each client and help them with device training and certification as well as marketing. Our customers become like family and can take comfort in knowing that although they may be starting a business for themselves - they are not alone”
