We had the good fortune of connecting with iaysha samad and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi iaysha, what role has risk played in your life or career?
As a single mother and entrepreneur, risk is my middle name! Just kidding, but for me, there is a big difference between a strategic risk and blindly jumping off a cliff – and this difference is key in the way that I move. My parents moved to California at the age of 17 with a duffel bag and whatever money they had in their pockets to build a better life. Their risk was my first inspiration from an entrepreneur’s perspective, and luckily I was exposed to it at an early age. Being a single mother, fear of failure replays like a movie in my head over and over. But as a mom to a little girl who will one day become a woman, I knew I wanted to teach my daughter not to fear life and the “what-if” questions that come along with it. Most importantly, I want to create a legacy to not only leave to her but to create generational wealth as well. These are the motivational drivers of my success as a business owner, and what I think about first whenever I’m faced with a risky decision. I’ve learned that risk-taking is essential to increase your chances of improving your current situation. I’ve also learned that becoming comfortable in your discomfort and investing in yourself and your business are the keys to success. You can’t fail if you never give up!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Framework Body Sculpting is an LA-based health and wellness spa that offers cutting-edge, non-surgical procedures that range from fat reduction to anti-aging services. Framework also offers accredited, industry-leading training courses which will guide you through every aspect of becoming an expert Body Sculpting Practitioner. Here we use non-invasive methods to enhance your natural beauty from the inside out. Framework treats their patients with treatments such as Ultrasound Cavitation, Radio Frequency, Laser Lipolysis, Wood therapy, and Fibroblast. These treatments have zero downtime and can be done before or after a day at work. I think what sets my business apart from others and what has gotten it to where it is today is my commitment to the women I serve. My number one priority is helping women reach their health goals and feel comfortable in their own skin. I truly believe that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and tones, and I make sure that this sentiment is demonstrated in all aspects of my business. Whether that means through education, inspiration, who my patients are, or who I work with – I am dedicated to cultivating a safe and positive environment to anyone who walks through the doors of Framework.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love supporting local businesses! Long Beach is so unique and quirky so there’s a bit of everything for everyone! These are my top 4 recommendations:

1. Coffee Parlor (one of many amazing coffee shops Long Beach has to offer).
2. Bluff Park to rollerskate on the beach or read a book with a view.
3. Duffy Boat in Naples offers brunch and wine spots on the water.
4. Crossroads is perfect to end the night with a highly rated vegan restaurant .

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to give a big shoutout to my friends and family for their continued support. There have been countless times where I didn’t believe in myself, and through the ups and downs, they continued to deliver support, honesty, and motivation. I personally want to shoutout my good friend and mentor Venessa Juarez. She’s been by my side throughout the 3 years since Framework Body Sculpting was created. Venessa fills you with uplifting positive energy, opens her doors to those who need it, and is the definition of women supporting women. I’m so thankful that I get to share the same energy and care for my clients and students.
