Member Spotlight - Chris Mann
Friday, April 26, 2019
Meet our member of the month: Chris Mann, Spa Owner
& Regional Developer at The Woodhouse Day Spa.
How long have you been a member of EO? Just over a year.
Favorite part of being in EO? The educational experiences/workshops from both a personal and professional level and learning through osmosis from successful entrepreneurs.
What’s one thing you wished you knew when you first started your business? Professional growth can actually be achieved faster when personal growth is also being tended to.
Biggest goal for 2019 (personally, professionally or both)? Professionally, it’s pivoting my focus from growth to execution. Personally, it’s more time off with my family and trying to create more ‘wow’ moments for people.
Favorite personal development book and why: I’m a big Malcom Gladwell fan. It’s not personal development in the traditional sense, but his stories focus on questioning perceived reality and allowing viewing things from different perspectives. His podcast was also fascinating to me.
What’s your personal motto or quote you like to live by: “Do what’s right, even if it costs you money.”
Favorite travel destination: We travel a lot and last year we decided that each year we’re going to some random place we’ve never been before. Last year we went to Vancouver and it was amazing…and totally randomly selected. Overall though, Barcelona and Rome are neck-in-neck as my top places to travel.
Best thing you’ve checked off your bucket list to date? Swimming with Whale Sharks and Mantas was pretty amazing.
Regarding the Woodhouse Day Spa:, Chris says, "Providing our guests with memorable experiences and mind-blowing customer service is my passion. We continually strive to not only provide an exceptional guest experience, but also an exceptional experience to our employees.
"I'm privileged to own and operate two successful Woodhouse Spa Franchise locations in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, and excited to promote The Woodhouse Brand as a Regional Developer in Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
"Woodhouse owners like me come from a hugely diverse background. We have owners with backgrounds in sales, marketing, IT, and more...but what really counts is passion. If you're looking to be on board with the finest spa company in the world and want to positively impact the lives of your customers in ways you cannot even imagine...this is the company for you.
