In celebration of Women's History Month, Echelon Health and Fitness is proud to spotlight the influential women within our community. Today, we're featuring Krista Do, the owner of Akoi Nail Spa, a valued MemberPERX Partner. Here's a closer look at our conversation with Krista:


Q: When did you take over Akoi Nail Spa?A: Akoi was established in 2014 by my friend, Jestina Lam. I took over in April 2017.


Q: How did you come up with the name?A: The original name was "Koi," symbolizing accomplishment and courage. The fish also symbolize good fortune, success, prosperity, and ambition. "A" was added to the beginning for a better flow, creating "Akoi."


Q: Was Akoi your first business?A: Yes, it's my first business.


Q: What advice do you have for our female community who may want to be an entrepreneur?A: Have faith in your visions and what you want to represent. Most importantly, remember that one person can't do it all. Having a strong team beside you is what makes your business a success.


Q: Any future plans for other locations?A: I hope so!


Q: Over the years, how many Echelon members have you serviced?A: Too many to name, but it's nice that we have a community that's able to support each other's businesses. Specifically, we service about 50 Echelon members per week.


Q: How much do Echelon members save?A: Echelon members save 10% for regular members and 15% for Thrive members.


Q: What benefits do you see being a MemberPERX Partner?A: The fact that we can support each other and other businesses in the area.


Q: How does working out with Thrive help you in your business?A: Besides mentally and physically, it helps to bring a community together and able to accomplish our goals of being strong and healthy. Seeing myself as a busy bee, a mom, a business owner, and able to set time out for myself maybe helps encourage others to set out some time for themselves.

Krista's journey with Akoi Nail Spa is a testament to the power of vision, courage, and community support. Her advice and experiences offer valuable insights for aspiring entrepreneurs, especially women, underscoring the importance of faith in one's vision, the necessity of a supportive team, and the benefits of community collaboration. The significant number of Echelon members serviced weekly at Akoi Nail Spa highlights the strong bond and mutual support within the community, further emphasizing the success of the MemberPERX partnership.
