"AHA" MOMENT:
When living in California, both Kimmie and Terri were active in the figure competition circuit and were actually introduced to their first spray tan when participating in a NPC figure show. The idea of mobile tanning business was sparked, but still years away from becoming a reality. Terri continued to use spray tanning on a regular basis instead of UV beds since she realized that it wouldn't make her orange and streaky and especially not have that bad smell that other sunless tanners leave.

A couple years of teaching passed by and Kimmie decided to move back to Michigan, but still had spray tanning in the back of her mind. She felt she needed her sister Terri to get it going! Terri was successfully managing a gym, but was finally convinced by Kimmie to move back to Michigan too....and Sol Sisters Custom Tan was born two months later!

THE BIG IDEA:
Sol Sisters started with a mindset that there's a healthier way to look flawless and glowing.

WHY THIS IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST:
With a family background of sun spots and melanoma, owners Kimmie and Terri Whitmore wanted to start a business with a healthy alternative to UV beds and other harmful ways to get that "just off the beach" color.

THE SKY'S THE LIMIT:
With funds raised on the Exchange, Sol Sisters Custom Tan plans to purchase Accounting software and update both their website and company products.
