We had the good fortune of connecting with Tyler Shavers and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tyler, what principle do you value most?
I value Mindfulness. Everything in life seems to me to come back to being mindful of one another, which would ultimately lead to have respect, compassion, and peace. Being aware of things outside your own life allows you to be present in reality with a good balance of ego.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I’m a Licensed Massage therapist. I offer therapeutic body services and create natural body care products. I strive to be affordable and accessible to the people in the community the business is located. My goal is to close the gap of between holistic healing and self care. Many people still view massages as a luxury and not a necessity for the body’s maintenance.
I took the risk of betting all on myself by leaving a secure paycheck that’s what I’m most proud of. I haven’t gone back to working on building someone else’s dream, when things get hard but making my dream the only option.
My business right now is beginning to really flourish in ways I didn’t know I manifested by surrounding myself with like minded individuals and great support. It hasn’t always been easy introducing a new service to people especially with my career being so personal. I only hope to soon get others more comfortable with themselves and maintaining the body.
My drive and passion for holistic care never came from money because I firmly believe if your doing something you’re meant to do the money will always follow. I would love for others to feel that way about whatever they choose to do because that’s what fuels me my desire for the mind,body, and spirit.
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 love to eat amazingly delicious food, so I think that’s priority when introducing someone to the city. 1. Coop Deville (for nostalgia)
2. Plaza de Aztec
3. Salem’s Grille
5. The Overlook in Mt Washington (the view)
6. Nola on the Square (now closed)
7. The Point
8. Steelers game(depending on season)
9. Arts Festival(depending on season) The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout Drew Allen for giving me a space to begin my vision while supporting new young entrepreneurs like himself.
