About this Episode

Have you ever thought about expanding your business to different locations? It can be a really big investment financially and emotionally, but when you get it right, there’s nothing else quite like it. If you feel like another town or city could benefit from your business, you owe it them and yourself to try, right? I’ve invited Nickie Janes, a CEO who made the bold decision to scale up to take us through her journey on this episode of the BizChix podcast. 

Nickie is a licensed aesthetician, Founder and CEO of Smooth boutiques and has over eighteen years of experience specializing in skincare and waxing. She’s built her business from a one room studio to a seven-figure business with thirty employees in three locations in the Norfolk/Newport News area in Virginia. Nickie is great at what she does, cares deeply about the clients her team serve and loves helping women find financial security for themselves.

So, if you’re tempted to branch out but don’t quite know how, or you’ve only just started visualizing your multi-store empire then Nickie is someone you can definitely learn from. She’s open about the internal struggles she faced and how she overcame them to really make a success of her boutiques. If you want to find out how she did it, make sure you tune in! 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Nickie’s transition from working for someone to working for herself
  • When she knew it was time to scale to multiple locations
  • How to deal with insecurities and impostor syndrome
  • Where she sees Smooth going in the future
