Spouses Who Share the Entrepreneurial Spirit
It’s estimated that 10 million American workers, or 6.6% of the nation’s workforce, are self-employed. But far fewer are husband and wife teams, and even fewer are both self-employed, having successfully launched two different enterprises.
Such is the story of husband and wife team, and successful entrepreneurs, Justin and Nina Morgan. Justin is CEO of Development & Design Concepts, LLC, a fully integrated land development, custom design, and construction firm that builds high-end custom homes and commercial buildings. Nina, a mom, Licensed Professional Counselor, IFBB Figure Professional, and doctoral candidate, recently launched two Planet Beach Automated Spa locations in Bearden and Turkey Creek, which are the first Planet Beach Automated Spa locations in Tennessee.
In this issue, we’ll focus on Nina and Planet Beach Automated Spa, which has high tech, innovative, affordable services that are revolutionizing the spa industry. In our February issue, we will interview Justin and learn more about Development & Design Concepts, LLC.
EK: First of all, tell our readers a little bit about Planet Beach and how it differs from traditional spas.
Nina: At Planet Beach Knoxville, we currently offer 13 different spa services to service both men and women. We offer everything from massage, weight management, detox, anti-aging, skincare, stress-reduction, pain relief, sunless color, and even teeth whitening. We offer convenience and affordability. With my locations now in Knoxville, luxurious spa services are no longer unattainable. All of our services are between 15 to 30 minutes. You can be in and out in 20 minutes or you can spend a few hours with us; it’s your choice. We offer monthly memberships and session packages to suit everyone’s goals, lifestyle, schedule, and budget. Whether you are a student, career person, or stay-at-home mom or dad, Planet Beach is just what you have been looking for. We are even open seven days a week! EK: You have extensive backgrounds in competitive sports, fitness, modeling, and professional counseling. How does your professional training and career experience benefit your clients?
Nina: I have always been passionate about fitness, health, wellness, and helping others. It’s all about the total package. We all want to look good on the outside, but we also want to feel good on the inside, too. We can’t focus on just one and lose sight of or neglect the other. Our self-esteem can be in direct correlation with our appearance. Self-care is so important – emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Our expert spa consultants are here to help our members and clients achieve their goals. Our services can help get you on the right track to a healthy lifestyle.
EK: You describe Planet Beach as a one-stop shop for total skincare and wellness. Can you elaborate?
Nina: While similar services exist elsewhere, clients would have to visit numerous locations to be able to take advantage of all the services we offer under one roof. We have a full line of skincare for face and body to clear, maintain, and transform your skin. We also offer relaxation products like masks, spa socks, personal massagers, candles, and melts, as well as nutrition products like vitamins, protein, detox, anti-cellulite herbs, and PB Clean Energy. We carry sunless color products by PB Glow and Sunless Pro, and we have in-spa, home teeth whitening kits, touchup pens, plus much more.
EK: Clients are often reluctant to commit to the high fees charged by spas or to sign long-term contracts. How is Planet Beach different?
Nina: We offer all different types of memberships, which start as low as $29 per month. We even offer month-to-month memberships and session packages. You can even freeze your membership.
EK: You also offer an appointment-based, no wait commitment to your clients.
Nina: Yes, our services are appointment-based. This enables us to keep a client’s wait to a minimum. We will also accept call ahead and walk-ins.
EK: Highlight for our readers two services that are popular with your clients.
Nina: Our most popular service for weight loss is the Slim Capsule. You can lose anywhere from one to five pounds and burn 400-500 calories in just one 28-minute session! Slim Capsule combines heat, light, massage, and natural aromas for a truly powerful and unique multi-sensory experience. The capsule provides the perfect environment to complement any exercise, fitness, personal training, spa, or beauty regimen. Dry heat and radiant heat combine with LED light therapy to enhance your POD experience. Aromatherapy, vibratory massage, and cool facial air complete the pampering and relaxation. Slim Capsule provides the perfect heated environment, maintaining desired heat levels throughout the duration of each session for more effective results and maximum comfort.
Turn back the clock with our second most popular service, which is red light treatment. Red light was first discovered by NASA. It has become very popular in the spa industry, because people are experiencing amazing results. Infrared light is a unique wavelength and can penetrate deeper into the skin. It can stimulate collagen and elastin in your skin. It helps with fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne, scarring, and stretch marks. It’s anti-aging’s dream!
