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

Hi Angel, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk. That’s a scary word for me. But I once read a quote… “Be scared and do it anyway.” I have always played it safe. I aspire to help those around me but I have, since I was 7 years old, wanted to own my business. I used to play “spa day” with my mom and I would have a set waiting area with hot towels for her. My mom has her masters in business and from an early age, has educated me on the basics of business. It started with how well I was with saving money, since I was young. I didn’t grow up with much and I like to think that contributes to how well I am with managing my savings. I used to loan my mom money at the age of 5, she taught me the value behind a contract. I learned how to be responsible with money and contracts at a young age. Little did I know, I would become the woman who managed and maintained every part of my business. I am a 1 woman show. And I like it this way, for now. I want to establish a strong frame for my business before growing and including employees.

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.
Originally, I had an entire resume in the medical field. I thought that’s where my path was leading. I started getting into skincare and once I started to learn more about how there are so many different careers in skincare, I realized I could combine both my passions into 1! The skincare industry is constantly evolving and that makes it exciting! I will eventually grow Luxxe Day Spa, adding more medical aesthetic services and evolve into a med spa. Professionally, I find myself comfortable in esthetics. It feels natural to me! Where my challenges come in, is behind the business. It’s always something to learn and stay up to date with the laws and regulations. The social media side of the business is starting to grow on me, its a process!

If I want anyone to know about me and my brand its this, I take pride in saying that with Luxxe Day Spa I meet great people. I push myself to be the best at anything I invest in and I think that shines through. It helps me build bonds with clients and allows them to trust me with whatever their journey may be for their skin or body. A true Skincare “Therapist” they can trust in.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If they have never been to Houston, I would immediately suggest we go to sporting events! Any true Houstonian takes pride in their teams! Next, we would go somewhere downtown for a quick cocktail and tapas! I am a foodie and if you do it right, you get small dishes and try everything! Maybe see what is happening at Discovery Green, go to the flea market night or if we’re lucky, they’ll be having a movie night! Grab a bottle of wine, blanket and some snacks and enjoy the show. Maybe do a yoga or Zumba class at Levy Park in Upper Kirby. Any outdoor activities are a go to, especially with how beautiful this November weather is!

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 wouldn’t know where to begin! I sometimes still have my doubts that I am actually doing this! My friends and family have been great supporters and it surprises me still how much my clients root for me! They have followed me from working for someone else to hyping me up to do my own thing. My favorite thing one of my clients said to me was, “If you don’t work here anymore in the future, you better tell me where you’re going! Nobody else is allowed to touch my face!” That alone told me that I was, even for an hour, making their day that much better.
