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

Hi Louise, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Scottsdale BodySculpt was born out of a frustration I had personally, finding something that would help me to address those areas on my body that caused a problem to my self esteem. After having children our bodies change and I just felt I needed a little help where diet and exercise didn’t seem to work. I also wanted to help other people who felt the same way but to make it affordable and not intimidating.

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?
I’m excited to share my business with people who need a boost in their self confidence, it’s the little things that make the most and I think in this day and age we sometimes forget in the hustle and bustle of daily life, where home life and business blur into each other, it’s more important now more than ever to take time for self care and self love. I’m overcoming challenges on a daily basis, like everyone is, juggling home life with starting a business from scratch is very hard, getting yourself and your brand out there, overcoming personal anxieties that have restricted your life thus far, it’s all a challenge, I have since learned, maybe a lot later than most, that life is too short to NOT put yourself out there. If you want to help people you just keep going. I’d like to think my brand is about care and support for people.

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’d definitely take them into the old town of Scottsdale to show them some of the classic old west. I’m from England, so I think that would be a fun thing to show my friends, then the roadtrip to probably Sedona, seeing the classic desert with it’s saguaro cactus and the terrrain as it morphs into the red rocks and beauty of Sedona. Maybe down to the old western ghost towns near Superstition Mountains, or Tombstone as that’s a classic. Hiking Camelback at sunset, the sunsets are incredible here, then obviously some authentic Mexican food.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family and close friends who keep me grounded and support with constructive suggestions and keep me going when things get over whelming
