Today we’d like to introduce you to Kiara Wyche.
Kiara, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was a mother, wife, and I worked a part-time job going nowhere fast. I wanted to do something more exciting and fulfilling for myself. I knew I needed a change and I always saw myself owning my own business but I had no idea how to do it. I was leaning towards the beauty industry because, like any woman, I was obsessed with looking and feeling my best. After contemplating really hard about business ideas, I remembered a few years ago when my husband bought me a gift certificate to a spa on Valentine’s Day. It was my very first facial experience, but needless to say, I was completely underwhelmed. My face was clean, however, my experience wasn’t worth the money. I felt completely out of my element and I felt like I was just another number in and out of a revolving door.
Previously, I’d spent many years purchasing numerous amounts of skin care products trying to figure out how to get that glowing complexion I’d seen on television. I felt like I was getting no where with thousands of products sitting on my bathroom sink. By this time, I had a little knowledge about skincare products and different types of professional treatments, but it always came down to how much it would cost me.
Then the light bulb came on and I’d figured out what I wanted to do. I thought, instead of paying a ton of money to get facials, why not make money treating skin and giving facials. I wanted to create a world of skin that individualized treatments at affordable prices fit for every budget. I wanted to offer a complete spa experience that also delivered clinical results. From there my journey began. I went back to school, got licensed, and open up SKINSCIENCE CLINICAL SPA. SKINSCIENCE has been open for six months and I’m very proud to say we carry our own skincare line! SO AMAZING!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Anything worth having is worth fighting for! My official grand opening was scheduled for June 9, 2018, and on June 3, a few days before, I fractured my knee playing tennis! Everything was placed on hold. It was a very dark and challenging time for me. I’d ask myself, “how could I have gotten this far to have it all end this way”. I was really close to giving up. But I had to try to be positive, telling myself that maybe this is my time to rest and selfcare before I burn out too early. I’d gone over a year straight, going back and forth to school, picking up and dropping off kids, playing tennis, and on top of that, running my house hold. It took two months for me to be able to walk with a brace and drive. So, as soon as I could, I went to work planning the grand opening, hoping and scooting around the spa. LOL And much to my surprise, it was a huge success! I always wondered if all the support came about because of my transparency, me sharing my story, and my ability to be open about my journey. It’s easy to show the highlights of the journey and not the times that threatens you to give up. So I pride myself on doing just that, so that the next girl/wife/mom can feel inspired and believe that they too can go for their dreams and look past those tough times!
My advice for women, especially mothers and wives, is that it’s our time to be a little self centered. We need to have the audacity to succeed and go for more than what we are given. Go for your dreams! Even if you don’t have all the answers! Even if there are still flaws in your plan! START ANYWAY!!!! If it is something that you were meant to offer this world, it will be provided for you. And it’s important to know that the best things in life ONLY lie past our fears.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about SKINSCIENCE CLINICAL SPA – what should we know?
SKINSCIENCE is known for specializing in Anti-Aging, Acne, and Advanced Skincare Treatments. What sets my business apart from other spas is that I offer an individualized experience that caters to all income ranges. No one should be left out and everyone needs to treat themselves for all the hard work they do. No matter the service, no matter the price, all my clients get that same million dollar spa experience. SKINSCIENCE is fun, sophisticated, yet tranquil and results driven. I am bridging the gap between the spa and clinical worlds. As women we like the best of both worlds, right? Why should we have to choose?
SKINSCIENCE has the ability to tailor the experience for each client by letting them choose their favorite music genre, taking selfies, and skin education. We have so much more to offer the world, so stay tuned!
So much of the media coverage is focused on the challenges facing women today, but what about the opportunities? Do you feel there are any opportunities that women are particularly well positioned for?
I agree, there are challenges we as women face on a daily basis in both personal and professional realms. I believe it is time for women to step out of the supporter roles and into leadership positions. We are gifted individuals who typically get looked over for some reason. We must create our own opportunities and create opportunities for other women!
