BUILD was the first step I took when starting the process to open Skinphorea. I was overwhelmed with the thought of having to do a business plan but everything was broken down in sections to make this daunting task feasible to do. The small class made the experience comfortable, inviting and we felt more like family as we shared valuable feedback with each other that helped guide necessary decisions for Skinphorea to become profitable.

I have not only stayed in touch with my peers but BUILD has provided great referrals that has taken the business to the next level.

Recently, we went from a 1 person home based business to a team of 10 employees in a brick and mortar and in the process of hiring 22 employees within the next 12 months. We’ve completed recent renovations that now allows us to treat more clients simultaneously enabling us to avoid long waitlists and increase revenue. We have been in Black Enterprise, Rolling out Magazine, DBusiness and I have been awarded Most Diverse Business leader in Metro Detroit by CORP magazine.

The long term vision of Skinphorea is all about scaling the business. GROWTH!! Providing more job opportunities, improving the quality of service and treatments along with more locations.
