On Tuesday the Granite City CEO students met with Miss Hutchins, owner of Pair A Dice Tan. She told us her story on how she became a small business owner. When she graduated high school she went to hair school, but then found out that wasn’t what she wanted to do with her life. Prior to that she has been working at tanning places since she was 16 years old. In 2018, her boss asked her if she wanted to buy the tanning salon. She did not know if she wanted to, but she realized it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. She saved up for months working 2- 3 jobs to get enough money to buy the business from her boss. She has owned the salon for two years, then everything took to a turn when COVID hit. She was so determined to keep her clients happy and pay the bills, she drove hours to deliver lotions and tanning supplies to her clients. She is dedicated to her job and to ensure that anyone who comes into her store has a great experience. We all enjoyed speaking with Miss Hutchins, what really stuck out to all of us was she told us to always follow your dreams no matter what is in our way. We all hope to meet up with her again soon!
