Angela Ellis - Bizee Bodies
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Angela Ellis. I'm a middle aged woman who has taken her idea of a dream job and turned it into a small business. The health and beauty industry has been a big part of my work experience. I started in my early 20's working for weight loss companies and enjoyed it for over 15 years. I'm a mom and have a 19 year old daughter who is autistic and I have a husband who I met when I was my daughter's age. I started practicing reiki in 2007 and I have been doing the access consciousness bar treatments since 2013.
Tell us about your business
Bizee Bodiez Contouring and Weight Loss Studio has been open since May 25, 2016, celebrating just over a year now. I am the sole proprietor of the company and have been running it since day one. The treatments offered here are for both the inside and outside of your body. Clients can do a combination of the treatments for a complete makeover or do one treatment that meets their personal needs.
The three treatments available are
Body Contouring: The Fat Terminator Machine is a lipo laser that targets fat cells and is perfect for people who are losing weight, have cellulite, or sagging skin. There's no down time and each treatment is 30 minutes long. Clients can do a maximum of 60 minutes if they have more than one area to treat. It is both safe and effective!
Reiki: A reiki treatment is an energetic treatment that uses universal energy channeled through the crown chakra directly through the arms and out the hands. There are multiple benefits to reiki which include relaxation and stress reduction. Clients can receive an express treatment for 30 minutes, a full treatment for 60 minutes, or an extensive 90 minute treatment.
Access Consciousness Bar treatments: Bar treatments is a method that allows your body to process and receive the changes you are choosing with ease. Access Bars are 32 points on your head when gently touched effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn't allow you to receive. It's a 90 min treatment.
What led you to start this business?
I decided to open this business because I have seen the benefits and results of these treatments on hundreds of people. I thought it would be cool to have a place that addresses all aspects of well- being and beauty in one location, a place that allows clients to receive services that will change things relatively quickly and uplift at the same time. It also benefits me as well because I am able to schedule clients and still have time to balance my personal responsibilities.
Was there something that drew (or pushed) you into being an entrepreneur?
The one thing that pushed me to open this business was a desire to do something for myself. I decided that it was my turn to have control on how to "help" people and I was tired of working for companies that made money off of women by telling them they weren't good enough, preying on insecurities whether or not they were real. I am relieved to come to work and leave feeling like I made a difference.
As a busy entrepreneur, what do you like to do when you take a break?
When I'm not working and enjoying some down time, I like to go to the movies and go to yoga classes. Yoga is my favourite way to decompress!
