For this week’s episode of Business Lives, we meet Abi Wright – the co-founder & MD of spa booking business Spabreaks.
Abi founded Spabreaks in 2008 after spotting a gap in the market, and over the past 10 years has grown the business into Europe’s largest spa booking company, hitting turnover of £21m in 2017 and boasting a 9.2 rating on TrustPilot.
In the personal interview with Will Theile, Abi discusses some of the sacrifices she has made along the way, the struggles of raising a young family while building a fast-growing business, and her new project – which offers spa breaks for sufferers of cancer.
