Wax Bars & Franchise Building with Kyla Dufresne
Play • 59 min

Kyla is a badass boss babe and an entrepreneur right out of the womb. In our conversation, we talk about her journey from working in a bakery, to restaurants, mental health support, and building a superbly successful wax bar business.

We focus on her journey & transition from being self-employed to being an employer, a franchise builder and discuss so much else in the process- from the different tools used, and her experiences that led to crafting Foxy Boxy to learning curves, licensing and franchising.
Also check out the bits about creative marketing strategies, favorites bits & modes of transportation.

Yes, you're right. We truly are wide-ranging. And we laugh a lot. And cuss a bit. We did warn you. Now go ahead, Listen&Chill.
