Melissa Brown, Owner
In January, I had the opportunity to travel to the beautiful city of Boise, ID at the invitation of All Hours Tanning Distributors. The veteran product distribution company chose to offer IST’s Sun is Life® Training & Certification at their annual West Coast Tanning Expo to bring both old and new owners and staff up to speed with factual indoor tanning info. During our breaks, I had a chance to answer additional questions from Melissa Brown, a new owner who drove from Salt Lake City, UT to attend the WCTE. It was easy to see her passion and commitment to making her salon “the best that it can be.” With Sun is Life, she acquired the strong foundation to make it happen.
Melissa, thanks for sharing with our readers what makes your salon go. All the best to you in 2019.
NOTE: During a follow-up call to Melissa, she told me that the goal she mentioned has been achieved – she just bought that “sister salon!”
