This session will examine big decisions including expanding to a second location, closing a location, selling a school, and many more.

CBD is all the rage—it can be found in just about everything, and that includes skin care products. But, it’s not legal everywhere, so this session answers important questions: How would it affect your federal funding? Is it worth all the hype? How do you get started? The session will address these questions and many more via a panel discussion focused on the multiple facets of adding CBD to your esthetics program. Featured speaker Chelsie Spencer, principal at Ritter Spencer, PLLC., in Dallas, Texas will also bring her expertise in business law and compliance issues related to CBD in the skin care field.
