HAPPY NEW YEAR! A New Year…A New Dream!
With the start of a brand-new year, we have the privilege of considering new beginnings and the fresh, unique opportunities awaiting us in 2018!! Sometimes doing something new and different means taking a bit of a risk into unknown territory. But this can be quite worrisome due to the fear of making mistakes. But making mistakes means constructing new things, learning, existing, pushing yourself, challenging yourself, and changing your world. We grow and evolve by doing things we’ve never done before. Take that leap of faith and be extraordinary in this New Year by believing in yourself and following your vision. Take a gamble, aim for the stars, and go outside your comfort zone. We are!
The FSA experienced a dynamic year in 2017 as we challenged ourselves to create unique, exhilarating events! Being Global Ambassadors for the Global Wellness Day Movement, we were passionate about focusing our events on wellness intertwined with spa-related benefits and fun!!! Our “WAVE” Wellness and Vitality Event at the Bonita Bay Country Club was fitness-oriented, with guests arriving in workout clothes and experiencing an orbit of wellness and fitness activities, including resistance training, spin classes, and yoga at their 18,000-square foot facility equipped with Technogym’s state-of-the-art Kinesis Stations. We enjoyed a VACAY at the magnificent Ocean Reef Club to indulge in the wellness that tourism and relaxation provide. And we ended the year with our “Culinary Art of Wellness” event at the elite Nobu Eden Roc Miami to learn about nutrition and the farm to table movement while enjoying delicious cuisine that Malibu Farms provided for us. All our events featured keynote speakers and panel presentations to enhance education and support the spa community regarding wellness.
We surpassed our membership goal for both spas and vendors and provided our esteemed members with the opportunity to build valuable relationships and expand business opportunities. Our greatest delight was knowing that countless business relationships were shaped. As we continue to be exclusively invested in the Florida spa community, we aspire to be the most resourceful platform in connecting our spas with our vendor affiliates. We pride ourselves on building priceless relationships through networking and education.
Last year was a vital, prosperous year for the FSA, and we are aiming even higher in 2018! We have extraordinary goals for 2018 starting with our first event at the Quantum Leap Winery where we will celebrate our love for Spa and embrace our commitment to wellness. Plans for the remainder of the year include an event at the private Seagate Hotel in Delray Beach and a two-day VACAY revisit extravaganza at the elite and very private Ocean Reef Resort in Key Largo.
And there’s more…… We are expending a major focus on education in the world of wellness in 2018. We plan to update our website and social media for more opportunities and continuous communication to keep our members and spa friends informed and connected.
We are enthusiastic about moving forward in 2018, and as the motto says, “Life is like a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
We are extremely grateful for the support the FSA has received from our members and spa community in 2017 and remain committed to providing the best opportunities we can offer and live up to our promise.
Happy New Year!
