Hip Tranquil Chick Chat: “Wow ... today's announcement of the Tranquil Space Foundation is not only impressive but seems like the perfectly logic next step. And, as a fellow small business owner, I know that while logical, the next steps take guts, initiative and passion.
One year ago today, I left my "secure" gig as a marketing executive to return to school and obtain my esthetician's license. I've always loved skincare and all topics of wellbeing; and I felt like this was an avenue to "my own" ... time, business, etc.
I started reading your blog and listening to your podcasts a few months back. They have been encouraging, inspiring and great companions on this new journey.
Congrats on the foundation; looking forward to hearing about its evolution and seeing its good works. In the very best way, I feel even more motivated to get involved, get in the game and have fun doing it.”
