Christi Newell and her husband Allan opened her business in 1999 with 6 employees providing massage, skin care, nails, laser hair removal and electrolysis. Since that time the company has actually grown into two separate businesses – A Glo Spa & Salon, an Aveda Concept company offering haircare, skincare, nails and massage in Janesville, Wisconsin and True Laser, a hair removal and skin rejuvenation company with 3 locations throughout Wisconsin and Illinois. Between the two companies, Christi now has approximately 50 employees.
Christi converted A Glo to Team-Based Pay over 12 years ago. She reconnected with Strategies coaching 2 years ago and in that time, at A Glo alone, has doubled revenue to over $1.2 million and increased prebook by 30%. Christi’s leadership style has created a culture built around empowering people and changing lives for the better. Christi feels the best part of leadership is the ability to share with the team, watching people flourish and grow while she learns along with them. She believes true growth is about learning what to do and not to do and having grace for each other along the way.
