It was initially just a pipe dream but Sophie Chalmers always wanted her own beauty therapy business. While training as a therapist she completed an assignment on building a business – and this was the catalyst for realising her vision. With the steadfast support of parents Trudi and Chris, within eight months Sophie’s dream came true.
“We found this space and I decided that with the three of us, we could do something really great. Once the decision was made, it happened quite fast, so when opening night came, I remember looking at each other and saying ‘This is actually happening!’.”
“Dad has been our motivator right from the start – he’s always said ‘You two can do this.’ So, he was probably the one that was pushing the build along quickly - communicating with our builder, and making sure we were moving ahead from the very start while we focussed our attention on the clinic, our staff and its start-up requirements.”
