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

Hi Charissa, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I have always want to own my on business. I did a lot of e-commerce will I was going college. All the book I read about business help understand that good business was a passion and a need. I fount mine when I decided not to go back to OU but to massage school. I have always been passionate about helping people but I was going to school for MIS. When I got out of school. I decided not to go straight into the spa world but to learn as much as a can and cultivate my skills in different modalities. When I started the processes of look for a place to open, I look for a good location, prices, and need for my services.

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?
What is C Health and Wellness Massage and Bodywork’s and what sets us apart from other business? Are goal is to keep are client health, active and mobile. Creating a sanctuary for them for them to let go of stress, anxiety and find muscle balance. So muscle dysfunction does not keep them for live and enjoying life. What set me apart for others is my thirst for knowledge ( learning different modalities) and the ability to say I can’t help you but lets find who can. I take proud in creating a healing atmosphere. How did I get where I am today? I learned to have to fall sometimes. Learn from it and keep moving, Give quality, expect quality and be quality in your craft. Don’t compromise you character and values for customers because once they have moved on you have to live with and deal with your actions. You can overcome anything that way. It is you that has to live with you and you can let go of people that does not value you. character always comes out in hard times and with money. Know you cannot not help everyone, there are people who like be miserable and want others to be that way with them, do get caught in it. You are never to old, to skill or handicap to learner. I’m a live example. Life is about growth. do not be scared to grow, let go and move on. Took this quote and made my on. It’s what i work to apply to all walks of my life. Regula quote: Too often we listen with the intent to respond and not to understand. Me: Listen with the intent to understand. So you my respond correctly. How you respond and react will determine the out come of every situation.

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 check what live music, theater, sporting and art events. We would eat a some traditional place we at as young ( Mama Florence’s, Rays, Bob’s Fish & Seafood). Then we would try all the new food place in OKC
