Looking good, Doing good! How to create a client oasis, and grow stronger with WOW results!

Located in West Hattiesburg and in Laurel, MS, this client’s 2 Aveda salons are upscale service-driven and personal care solution-focused masterpieces.

Lisa began her MS SBDC journey by working with the former JCJC office to develop a Low Doc SBA loan package to start her independent salon business ownership by buying out her partner in 2005.

This business has continued a relationship with the SBDC by becoming a client of USM SBDC in 2016 for data, information, National reports from IBIS about business expansion ideas and for Counselor advice and input.

Because of all the efforts of this exceptional client, along with her Counselor and her constant outreach, her businesses have grown with intention and with true entrepreneurial inspiration, with positive financial results to match her outstanding, community-driven, innovative practices.
