What her company does: Operates luxury spas and salons in New Brunswick and P.E.I. ||

Lang decided to open Nakai’s second location in 2009, at a time when luxury spa sessions weren’t exactly a top spending priority for most people. But she forged ahead, confident that the expansion would put the firm in an optimal position once the economy improved. She was right, and says the move has proven “instrumental” to her success.
