This month I had the pleasure of announcing the winner of our Small Biz Win Big Contest. On November 2nd, I presented Nathallee K. Hartwell from The Massage Studio with an award at our Small Business Celebration event at Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria Guildford. As the contest winner, Nathallee now has $25,000 worth of prizes geared towards growing her business. It was a fantastic night where small business owners enjoyed some great networking, good times and delicious pizza.
There were many qualified business owners who entered the contest, and we’d like to thank everyone who participated, and of course our sponsors whose generous contributions made this contest possible.
Here’s a bit more about our winner: Nathallee was introduced to massage at a very young age through her mother, a massage professional and owner of a massage studio in Manitoba. After her own experience with life trauma and stress, she was inspired to open a massage practice of her own 6 years ago. Her focus is on mental and emotional health through the use of aromatherapy massage.
Nathallee graduated as a professional counsellor, is a Reiki Master, and has classical massage, Psychosomatic Therapy, and Forgiveness Coaching certifications. Besides massaging and caring for people, Nathallee has an insatiable passion for educating others. She is also committed to continuing her own education and expanding her business by completing her RMT (Registered Massage Therapy) training and opening a second clinic. She is currently working alone but looks forward to adding staff to her business. She has earned several best massage in Vancouver awards.
We, along with our sponsors, look forward to working with Nathallee and helping her business to grow and flourish.
