Yvonne’s boutique spas in Shanghai offer 13 types of facials, plus a chocolate pedicure for $48. Her father escaped China in 1949 with his family although two siblings died.
She has the Diva life designing her own furniture, spa, and clothes. Yvonne spends the morning at the fabric market and meeting with her tailor, and then goes to her office. But the main reason she started the spa is so that she can have hours of spa treatments any day she likes.
The number of women entrepreneurs in China is growing. About three in ten businesses in China are women owned and, according to the All-China Women’s Federation, women account for one-quarter of total China-based entrepreneurs as of 2017.
