As a single parent struggling with chronic respiratory issues, Pam Bliss decided it was time to seek new treatment options. After years of various medications, frequent doctors appointments, and unplanned hospital stays, she knew she couldn’t continue taking care of herself or her son in her current condition.
While she was a full-time nurse at a local hospital, Pam carved time out of her busy schedule to try yoga and was immediately impacted. Over 20 years later, her chronic issues are nonexistent, and she has experienced a complete transformation in both mind and body.
The level of transformation she experienced in her own life was the exact inspiration she needed to take the next step in her career. If she could impact just one person with yoga in the way that she was impacted, her business would be a success.
In 2002, Pam opened YogaAsylum, which was one of only two yoga studios in SE Wisconsin at the time. In the years to come, the studio expanded their wellness services and acquired Milwaukee School of Massage in 2016. Along with the growth and expansion of the business came a new name, Everyday Bliss Yoga + Massage, as well as the need for more space.
Unfortunately, the everyday challenges of being a small business owner were about to multiply for Pam. After a series of unexpected events, the studio found themselves with just 180 days to find a new space. With both her and her employees’ futures on the line, Pam fought rigorously for the studio to remain open.
After being introduced to the Waukesha County Center for Growth, Pam was exposed to resources that helped her not only find a new studio space, but one that she would purchase as her own. While the process of finding a loan became unbearably daunting, Lucy Waldhuetter, Business Consultant for the Center for Growth helped Pam stay the course. Lucy provided sound advice, thorough business planning, and most importantly time – something Pam was quickly running out of. Pam is confident that without the help of resources like the Center for Growth, she would not be where she is.
Today, Everyday Bliss has grown to over 15 employees and is settling into their new 12,000 square foot location on Bluemound Road in Waukesha. With a mission to inspire global well-being, they have impacted thousands of people across the region. Whether you’re looking for healing, a new challenge, or a way to improve your health in 2020, Everyday Bliss has a multitude of services to help you create bliss in your daily life. www.everyday-bliss.com
