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

Hi Marcela, what do you attribute your success to?
I believe that given the nature of my small business, client connectivity would be the most important factor. I approach every client from a empathetic perspective. Getting waxed can be nerve wrecking. It’s important that I am calming and reassuring that everything will be alright. We connect with our clients on a personal level and cater to their individual needs while still providing a fast and efficient service.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We are a boutique, private, full body waxing studio. What separates us from others is the personalized service we provide to every individual. Our space is small but extremely efficient. We always run on time and offer five star services. Getting to where we are today has certainly been a journey. Dedication and remaining passionate about what we do has kept us motivated to maintain the level of excellence we provide. If love to focus more on community connections – connecting with our local small business neighbors. The world needs to know that even in your most vulnerable moments, you can still be a brave kitty!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Margaret Butler is my partner. We work incredibly well together and have bonded over the many years of friendship. It can be scary to go into business with a friend but we just jive well on a boss babe level.
