Divinity Cross

Hi Divinity, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I’m Divinity Cross, owner and operator of UrbanSpa Mobile Saint Louis, a premier wellness spa on wheels. My journey as a massage therapist began in 2005 when I worked part-time at a local spa. I was passionate about the healing power of touch and wanted to make a difference in people’s lives through massage. In 2006, I leaped and launched my very own business, “The Lounge Massage Studio.” Unfortunately, the timing was tricky, as the financial market took a nosedive, and so did my business. It was a setback, but I never lost sight of my dream. I always knew I would give it another shot, even if it took a while. Fast forward to the summer of 2022, when my niece shared an exciting idea with me. She told me about a mobile bus offering lash services, facials, and makeup in her city. That sparked a vision, and I decided to turn it into reality. I founded “UrbanSpa Mobile,” a wellness spa on wheels, bringing relaxation and rejuvenation directly to people’s doorsteps. It’s been a long and winding journey, but I’m proud to say I’ve found a unique and innovative way to pursue my passion for massage therapy and wellness. At UrbanSpa Mobile, our mission is to provide women with the opportunity to refill those cups through a luxurious mobile spa experience and provide corporate wellness services. We understand that workplace demands can be incredibly stressful, so we offer chair massages for small corporate events. We aim to reach people where they are, whether at home or work and provide them with wellness and relaxation. We believe self-care is not a luxury but a necessity, and we are committed to making it accessible to all women. UrbanSpa Mobile is not just a business; it’s a movement to empower women to prioritize their well-being and give themselves the care they deserve. UrbanSpa Mobile is an award-winning, innovative wellness spa on wheels. I am passionate about helping women find time for themselves and prioritize self-care. And prioritize self-care in their lives.

Let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what challenges have you had to overcome?
First and foremost, only a handful of mobile spas are housed inside buses or vans, and I was determined to be one of them. But the trials and errors I faced along the way seemed endless. I hired a contractor to transform my vision into reality to kick things off. Little did I know that this decision would lead to one of the most trying chapters in my journey. The contractor I hired was shady and untrustworthy, leaving my bus in disarray and causing thousands of dollars in damages. It was a devastating blow, both financially and emotionally. One of the most harrowing moments in this ordeal was when my bus was on the highway, and my window suddenly blew out. This calamity occurred due to the screws the unscrupulous contractor had removed during their work. It was a terrifying experience, and I was left to pick up the pieces figuratively and literally.

Let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?

Can you talk to us about the role of luck?
First, there was the day I stumbled upon the right builder for my mobile spa. It was like the stars aligned. “This is the one.” This builder didn’t just bring my dreams to life; he crafted a mobile bus luxury spa that’s a true work of art. And here’s the kicker – he installed 900 watts of solar panels. Now, my mobile bus can run on solar power, so I can keep the air conditioner and heat purring no matter where we roll. It’s a game-changer cause I don’t know of any other mobile spa bus that has those solar panels. But that isn’t all. The second stroke of luck was finding a thriving community to link up with. I joined The Spa Boss Tribe & Content Impact community. Both have been essential keys and helped me grow my business. Being a solo entrepreneur can be a tough road, but it’s a lot easier with the right folks by your side. See, it’s all about giving my clients the best mobile spa experience, and these communities have been vital in making that happen. So, yeah, luck in business? It’s like a secret ingredient, like that dash of love that makes a recipe special. And with my mobile spa and my community by my side, I’m feelin’ pretty lucky, if I do say so myself.
