All of the wonderful goods and services that we enjoy are due to the efforts of entrepreneurs such as Rosanna Higginbotham.
Rosanna purchased the Providence Salon & Spa in the Spring of 2009 with the emotional support of her family and the help of Community Futures. Providence Salon & Spa is a full service salon that has been in business since 2007, offering advanced hairstyling and coloring, pedicures, manicures, massages, waxing, body wraps and facials as well as makeup applications and a vertical tanning booth. The majority of the salon clients are female, while the massage therapy clientele are evenly split between men and women.
Rosanna had started working at Providence Salon & Spa during the previous winter. When informed by the then current owner that the business was for sale, discussions were soon underway. A hard worker and someone who is not afraid of risks, Rosanna was looking for a new career as a business owner. Rosanna had gained her business knowledge through her College education and her previous involvement in managing family owned businesses.
Rosanna’s entrepreneurship supports the jobs of an esthetician and massage therapist as well as three stylists and a part-time receptionist.
Rosanna works in a management capacity, doing the bookkeeping, scheduling and payroll, dealing with suppliers and making sure that the clients enjoy their experience at Providence Salon & Spa.
As long as there is a market available, entrepreneurs like Rosanna find a way. They see opportunities others don't. They take carefully calculated financial risks.
Community Futures is ready to help.
