Beauty For Your Ashes
Today we’d like to introduce you to Choyce S. Guice.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
As a single mother working in the healthcare field for 10 years as a nurse I was becoming increasingly unsatisfied and unfulfilled when I went to work and I wanted more for my children and I. After many years of putting myself on the back burner to take care of my family I realize that so many other women and men for that matter are in the same boat I once was in, so I then decided I wanted to utilize my nursing skills for all things health and beauty! I started doing post op nursing care on my dear friend/ sister and things took off from word of mouth. I am now the owner of A Choyce Touch Med spa located in AKron, Ohio where my team and I (Brianna McClain) provide a holistic approach to post op care and are non invasive cosmetic procedures as well which gives us optimal results for non surgery clients.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Success definitely has not come easy as I am sure with starting any new business venture. As a African American woman with no business background I find myself learning as I grow which can sometimes hinder business growth in certain aspects. With challenges from when to hire help, what services to offer, pricing, marketing and etc. everyday I learn something new about business. Although I don’t regret my decision to leave my traditional nursing jobs and start my own business, as a single mom I am learning to have a work life balance so that nothing overshadows motherhood. When starting a business as a mother sometimes you can get so caught up in the day to day operations and the content creation, marketing material you need to create and the list goes on you exhaust yourself so much that you don’t want to walk to the park or run the kids to basketball practice, however finding that peace and balance will bring so much clarity and allow your business to thrive.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I specialize in post op care and body contouring services. Post op care is inclusive to wood therapy if and when needed , suture removal, lymphatic drainage massages , meal planning, proper garment and compression options, assisting with ADLs as needed and post surgery mental support. Many of our post op clients after a years time convert straight to body contouring clients which is also offered to our non surgical clients. Each procedure is specific to the needs of the clients. Our non invasive procedures Includes detox sauna wraps, cavitation, skin tightening, vacuum therapy and laser lipo to name a few ! At A Choyce Touch we provide a holistic approach meaning we look at lifestyle, diet, mental health etc. to determine and or help you with your body goals!
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
For those individuals that are feeling uncomfortable and unfulfilled in life, push yourself beyond what your eye can see! If you desire to find success in your life have crazy faith so that no matter what anyone says or do your not deterred from your goals! Every obstacle that I encounter I trust the process and remind myself that I am who God says that I am and I will be who he has appointed me to be! When you take a stand in your life and live with a made up mind you will achieve anything you set out to do in life. As a business owner sometimes you have to encourage yourself when no one else will, speak life over your family, bank accounts, children, business and everything that concerns you until you see change. Success doesn’t happen over night but if you put the work and effort into your business you will definitely be successful in your business.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
The words success to me means achieving goals and knocking down barriers that have been placed against me. Please understand I’m not nearly as far as I am going to however after going through a rough divorce mentally and transitioning back to my home town (Akron,Oh) with my three children in my heart and mind I’m already successful, I’m already a winner because I’m still standing. Success is what you make of it to add the success of my business that’s a Delicacy.
