Shane sold his business today.

PICT0780lobby1.JPGShane, my nimble partner, closed the sale of his business today.

Shane and his wife Treena started a day spa/salon business 5 1/2 years ago. They built The Brick House Retreat into what is probably the most successful and largest single salon & spa business in the state with gross revenues pushing $2m a year and a staff of 50. Their success and business acumen is what led me to place one of Surface's Medical Clinics in Brick House as a satelite clinic in Salt Lake. It was working with Shane in that capacity that impressed me enough to approach him in partnering on Nimble.

So Shane has sold that business in order to fund Nimble as we launch.

One of my favorite quotes comes from a chapter heading of a book that's popular among creatives, The Artists Way,  "Leap, and the net will appear."

Shane and I both believe deeply that we have the opportunity to use Nimble to build the most valuable and valued tool available to any local business.  I for one have no reason to question Shane's commitment.
