From Illinois to Main Street
Janna Engle returns to her roots to run business that helped change her life. When Janna Engle was 35 years old she suffered from a severe case of adult acne. It got so bad she got to the point where she didn’t want to leave the house.
Flash Forward five years and not only is Engle’s face as clear as can be, she is helping others improve their skin at The Wax Pot in downtown Sauk Centre.
Engle and her family (husband Mike and three children) moved back to Sauk Centre last year after living in Illinois so Mike could take a job with Engle Fabrication. It was in Illinois where she first opened her skin care clinic after completing her schooling t become an Esthetician. The business was doing well, but when Mike received a job offer back in his hometown, both he and Janna (who is form Belgrade and maiden name is Torgerson) decided to jump at the offer in order to be closer to family.
She has since opened The Wax Pot, providing an array of skin care services, including: facials, chemical peels, body treatments, facial and body waxing, specialty masks and mineral makeups. She has been in business in Sauk Centre since August 2009 and at her current location next to Main Street Realty since April 1.
Engle prides her business on privacy and affordability. She is the only employee and works by appointment.
“Privacy is important to me, especially in a small town” she said. “Some people just don’t want others to know they are having their back waxed.”
The same went for Engle years ago when she suffered from her adult acne. She searched for a resolution and it wasn’t until she visited an Esthetician that her problem was solved. It spearheaded her decision to become an Esthetician herself.
“I saw what kind of difference it can make in a person’s life,” she said. “It’s a lot more than just getting a facial. You can make people look better and most importantly feel better.”
Engle even performs chemical peels on her 13-year-old son to keep acne at bay.
“You can’t cure acne,” she said. “But you can treat it and you can make it better.”
ngle said she is happy to be back home and helping people. She said Sauk Centre has welcomed her as a business owner with open arms, and her appointment book has filled up fast, keeping her plenty busy over the past several months.
“This is something people do for themselves so I want to keep it affordable,” she said. “I want the single mom and the one-income family to be able to afford it. After all, everyone deserves to feel beautiful.”
