Career Dreams Come True
“It’s been a life-changing experience! How can I thank you for all you’ve done in helping us accomplish our biggest career dream — opening our first salon and spa and watching it grow overnight!”
~Stephanie Bosco/Owner, Studio Phi Salon-Spa
Stephanie is the Co-Owner of Studio Phi, a new salon and spa in Reno, NV. When I met her, she was working in a small workstation at another salon with a dead-end career path. After entering my grant study, Stephanie opened a new salon with her business partner, Robin Pasalich, which produced 1,000x improvement in cash flow, new business opportunities and rapid career expansion in their first six months. Studio Phi became an immediate success, experiencing tremendous growth and expansion even before its formal grand opening.
Stephanie contacted me for a residential Feng Shui assessment in October 2010 for mostly personal reasons. She was tired, unmotivated and bored with her job. Her husband was struggling with atrial fibrillation — he was frequently in and out of the hospital and he had trouble sleeping at night. Stephanie shared her frustration and clarified that she was bored in her current job working for someone else, and she wanted to open her own business. Stephanie told me that she and Robin had been ”talking about it for years” but just couldn’t get any traction to move forward with their plans. Additionally, her husband wasn’t convinced that opening a new business during an economic downturn was a good idea. That’s when I asked if she wanted to participate in my research study for small business, and she said “Yes”!
As a result of Feng Shui changes completed during her 6-month participation period, Stephanie documented the following results:
- 1,000 x improvement in cash flow, new business opportunities and rapid career expansion
- 100% improvement in Stephanie’s husband’s sleeping disorders and health
- 100% improvement for both Stephanie and her husband in energy, vitality and motivation
- Complete support from Stephanie’s husband, who is now on board with Stephanie and Robin’s new venture
- 100% turn around in personal well-being, satisfaction and happiness
Although there has been additional stress with opening the new business, Stephanie classifies this as “happy stress.” She feels tremendous motivation, fulfillment and satisfaction in getting up every day and going to work in her own business, instead of renting a small station in someone else’s salon.
