The entrepreneurial spirit knows no boundaries or limitations. It can strike anywhere at any time and once it takes hold of you, it’s hard to go back to working for someone else. As many entrepreneurs will say, if you are not working to build your dreams, you are working to help someone else build their dreams. Our guest today was Luz Rivas, Medical Esthetician and Owner of Skin by Luz and some of the many takeaways from her discussion was that when life calls you to action, you will know it. In this discussion, it pertained to her call to build her own business.
Growing up in Medellin, Colombia, Luz was inspired by her mother to lead and be independent of others in the professional world. At the age of 25, she came to the United States without knowing English and quickly married and fell into the traditional family lifestyle role as wife and mother. As the years past, she learned English by watching soap operas on television and then began studying the field of skin care. Her passion of always looking and feeling your best is core to her inner self and she was drawn into the business of skin care to help herself and other retain their youthful look. She opened Skin by Luz in the fall of 2016 and today is a proud and happy business owner that took the entrepreneurial journey which began in Colombia and ended in Tampa, Florida.
Luz spends the hour with Jamie and Kelly on That Business Show and discuss some of the basics of skin care in addition to her entrepreneurial journey. She advises against the use of all tanning products, not just the beds and traditional methods, but also against self-tanners and lotions to enhance your skin tone. “You must drink plenty of water” is key to having and keeping youthful and radiant skin and she explains how when we age, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin which results in the traditional aged look. From hydrafacials and dermaplanning to hydradermabrasion and anti-aging facials Luz offers a wide range of products in her store which is located at 8412 N Habana Ave in Tampa. Stop by for a service, both men and women, and learn from her why skin care is so important and enjoy a lively conversation too! Learn more at www.skinbyluz.com or call at 813-421-3205.
