Jamie Powell is a young entrepreneur with awesome vision and the determination to match.

The owner of Zaanti Relaxation Spa in Carnduff, Saskatchewan, Jamie grew her business from the idea stage to the thriving downtown business it is today. "I was 18 years old and moved home from Saskatoon to live in Carnduff. To start, Zaanti was low key. I had a single treatment room that housed waxing, manis/pedis, massage and reflexology services. I really enjoyed providing my clients with these relaxing services so knew this was a great fit for me."

Jamie had the confidence in her business idea, and an outstanding work ethic. Coupled with a solid business plan and the support of her family and community, Jamie decided to expand her operation to what is now its current location at 820 Railway Avenue in Carnduff.

Community and family support have been important to Zaanti's success. Jamie has involved herself with the Carnduff and District Business Organization. "I want to focus on doing things for the community. I find this helps me as a business owner and a citizen in my town." Family support along the way has made a huge impact to Zaanti's evolution. "My dad and I did most of the physical renovations to this facility ourselves. As well, my family helped with painting, cleaning and moving."

"To begin with, it was hard to get a loan through a bank because the business was so new. I looked beyond traditional financial institutions to Community Futures Sunrise. Sunrise was an organization I was familiar with from taking their business classes. Within a few short weeks I had my loan approval and was renovating the new business location. Sunrise was great to work with," comments Jamie.

Jamie started renovations on her current facility in 2012, and has created a relaxing oasis for her spa clients. There are currently eight people working out of the Zaanti location:

· Jamie Powell owner of Zaanti Relaxation Spa provides manicures and pedicures, reflexology treatments, relaxation massage, waxing services and Reiki treatments.

· Kat Trimble owner of The Katwalk Salon, offers hairstyling.

· Rikki Duncombe provides hairstyling and spray tans.

· Jody Spencer offers artificial nails, gel polish and eyelash extensions.

· Theresa Neumann is a nail technician who specializes in manicures and pedicures.

· Christine Duperrier is a registered massage therapist.

· Keri Bailey provides massage therapy services and will be fully registered by June 2014.

· Joanne Howard from Sleek Appearance provides laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation services once every two weeks at Zaanti Relaxation Spa.

And the list doesn't stop there. Jamie's future plans include a renovation to the basement. "I hope to have a wide open studio downstairs for yoga and other exercise classes. I would also like to have another massage room downstairs and hope to bring facials to our service list."
