Entrepreneurs are dreamers. This statement was never truer than with Amanda Lyles. A native of San Angelo, MBA graduate of Texas Tech University and employee of the State of Texas, Amanda had a dream. She wanted to own and operate a Day Spa and had focused her energies on that goal.

Amanda Lyles called ASU SBDC advisor Peggy Rosser with a request: “I’ve written my business plan. Can you look over it?” Amanda and Peggy exchanged the business plan numerous times getting all the edits just right.

The initial plan was for Amanda to approach a bank and present her newly practiced technique of asking for a loan. Little did she know that the first bank she approached would take the opportunity to finance the project!

“The direction and mentor ship which Peggy Rosser provided me while securing financing to start my first venture, was one of the determining factors in the success of our project. Peggy guided me through the phases of fine tuning my business plan, coached me through the interview process and provided valuable insight into most appropriate financing route for us to take. I will forever be grateful for her dedication to assisting small businesses flourish in Texas,” Amanda commented. 

Amanda was able to find the perfect location and SPASOCIAL in Round Rock, Texas opened for business on September 15, 2013. SPASOCIAL provides an environment conducive to socializing and
having fun! This unique concept will make SPASOCIAL the choice provider of day spa treatments in the area.

The opening of SPASOCIAL provided jobs for 15 people, contributing to the economic base of Round Rock, Texas.
