34 @dayspamagazine • April 2019 BUILDING BLOCKS Want to begin each day with the best possible attitude? Look no further than Morning Affi rmations (Adams Media, December 2018) by Jennifer Williamson, writer and creator of, a blog created to support those in need of healing with messages of hope and inspiration. The book contains 200 energizing messages designed to empower you to be your best; each affi rmation is short, simple and easy to remember, so you can pick whichever one resonates with you most, and keep it top of mind all day long. It's no secret that business management software can signifi cantly simplify the many aspects of spa operations, and cloud-based technology is making quite a name for itself in the spa and wellness industry. In fact, one of the International SPA Association (ISPA) Innovate Award winners in 2018 was Book4Time , which allows spas to focus on customized experiences that keep clients coming back. Additional features include appointment booking, marketing and retention programs, revenue and staff management, and business data reporting—all of which can be tailored to a spa's specifi c needs. Software Solution Luxurious robes are practically essential to a pampering spa experience. One fashionable option is Wrap Up by VP , a collection designed to be a sleek alternative to bulkier bathrobes. The microfi ber cover-ups are light, super-soft and absorbent—per fect for lounging after soaking tub or steam room sessions. Available in a variety of styles and patterns, they can also be custom-branded with spa logos and sold in retail areas to generate additional revenue. THAT'S A WRAP To be a leader in the spa industr y, businesses need to hire staff with a ver y specifi c skill set—and screening each prospective pro can be incredibly time consuming. Inter viewing platform Canvas helps streamline that process, allowing employers to easily connect and engage with applicants via text. The built-in artifi cial intelligence even generates inter view and follow-up questions, and as conversations are captured, baseline information about the candidate is automatically compiled. A multitude of other functions allow recruiters to complete the screening process with ease and effi ciency. SCREEN TIME Book Nook
