Insight On Business the News Hour

Small Business Spotlight - Skin, Body and Soul

When our friend Beau Foder said we "Had to meet" Angela Carter of Skin, Body and Soul we were on it. And now you can meet her too! A fun and informative conversation about her business that has locations in West Des Moines and Ankeny where they do amazing things for your skin (with two great tips), your body (space-age fat killing...no really!) and your soul (learning to love you and who you are). We had a blast and that's why Skin, Body and Soul is in our Small Business Spotlight!
