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

Hi TaLynna LMT, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Freedom & flexibility. I love being able to do what I need to do without having to clear it with anyone else. I am able to be involved with my daughter who started High School this year. I am also able to do what I love for a living and have a healthy social life. That is something that is extremely important to me. I couldn’t see any other way to do it other than starting my own business and working for myself.

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?
I am the owner and Massage Therapist at Royalty Massages LLC I specialize in customized massage sessions that are catered to your specific needs at the time of your service. I offer all kinds of services and upgrades including Lymphatic Massages, V- Steams, Body Contouring, Hot Stones, Scrubs and so much more. I think what sets me apart is the fact that I absolutely love what I do. You can honestly feel it when I’m working with you. It’s hard to find people in this field who are passionate about what they do. I can honestly say that I have found my calling. I am most proud of my growth over the past year. A lot has changed since we last spoke in May of 2020. I have moved into my own space in Orland Park IL and I absolutely love it. It was not easy but I made it work and it has been an absolute blessing. I have also had the opportunity to work out of Miami doing Lymphatic Massages for cosmetic surgeons. I am excited to see what kind of new opportunities and exciting adventures this next year brings. This journey has been an uphill battle that was well worth it. Some days are better than others but I keep pushing to be the best I can for myself and my clients. it can be overwhelming sometimes with the constant training and trying to keep up with all of the latest techniques but it is all well worth it in the end. As long as I am giving my clients 100% and getting the results they are looking for, I am happy.  I just want the world to know that it can be done no matter how you started. I started extremely rocky. two years later and I have everything that I wanted and so much more.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I am a lover of cool things, music, and the arts. My top pics for Chicago will always be any of the Museums, Theaters, and Millenium Park. There are so many different shows going on at any given time in the theaters. The museums are full of fun activities for all ages and endless learning oprtnities. Millennium Park is a lot of fun in the summer as well as the winter. From live music in the park to ice skating and hot chocolate on a winter afternoon. The Chicago tours are a fun way to learn all of the hidden fun that downtown has to offer. the nightlife is a blast as well. Live music, dancing, spoken word, and drinks outside on a beautiful summer night with your friends.

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?
First and for most I have to thank God for all of it. I have been abundantly blessed in my business. My daughter Renee is always my biggest supporter and my biggest motivation. My sister in love Jordyn, who is also my assistant. I would honestly be completely lost without her. My friends Whitney and Demetria. These two women have always been my reminder to keep pushing no matter what. They are a constant reminder that I can absolutely do this! This journey has really shown me the true definition of “it takes a village” there are so many people who have stood in the gap for me, kept me motivated, wiped my tears, and worked through my scrambled thoughts with me. If I ran down a complete list of every person who played a part in my greatness we would be here all day. All I can do is simply say thank you and I love each of you so much.
