I was wondering if any one can help me out. I am currently a student at National University and am writing a business plan for a Day Spa and Salon for my MBA Course Project. I was wondering if you could help me out by providing me with the Barriers to entry of the industry. I have been searching the web for hours coming up with next to nothing. I figured it was worth a try to ask your assistance. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and concern.

I know that people with lots of MONEY and no BUSINESS SENSE open up a BEAUTIFUL day spa and then close down 2 years later because they ran out of money.

Then there are people with a great business plan and no CREDIT - so they can't get a LOAN and open. So no money = no open business.

FOR therapists usually they cannot work as a massage therapist without a license or certificate. Most states are tightening up their rules on this so you would have to have a license or certificate to do a massage.

Barriers to entry are very different across states and countries. I'm sure all the spas in Dubai have different standards for their business that we have here in the States.

hope this helps!!
