We had the good fortune of connecting with Juanita Stewart and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Juanita, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process was simple, FREEDOM!!! No one can tell me when I can take a lunch break, when I can take a vacation, or if I can attend school activities for my children.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My career as a massage therapist has been life changing! I get just as much joy as the person receiving a massage from me! My career started in Las Vegas, Nevada working poolside at Aria and Caesars Palace. My experience with high-end clientele is what sets me apart. I offer a luxury experience unlike any other! You will receive the same quality massage and service as if you were in a 5-Star resort!

Becoming my own boss hasn’t always been easy! I had to learn to pace myself and not burn out… Working with celebrities for the past 10 years has taught me that everyone deserves first class service so I need to rest! I must be at 1000% so that I can give 1000%!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to Mam’s Cuban Diner in Hapeville! They have the best Cuban food I have ever tasted! We would then visit Milk and Honey for Brunch. I love their French Toast! Then there’s Susi’s tacos where you can find the absolute best vegetarian nachos!!! I don’t really hang out much but me and the hubby love finding great new restaurants to try! Atlantic Station is a must visit!!! They have a great Thai restaurant and I love going to the movies there and we would also have to stop by Lush Nail Bar for pedicures!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate this shout out to my husband, Mr. Andre Stewart. Without his love, support, mentorship and encouragement, I wouldn’t be who and where I am today! Having the right support system has been vital to my success. He encourages and pushes me to limits I didn’t think I had!!!
