Meet Sidney Leigh of Bunzies Organic Spray Tanning

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sidney Leigh.

At the age of 27, Sidney founded Bunzies Organic Spray Tanning. Within 12 months she was able to create a 6 figure income working from home while raising her baby girl. By the end of her 2nd year in business, she had grown Bunzies by over 300%. Bunzies has since grown to become one of Arizona’s top leading airbrush tanning companies.

Bunzies Organic Spray Tanning now has 3 locations across the Arizona valley in Gilbert, Chandler and Scottsdale.

Her focus on fitness models and organic health has been showcased on multiple magazine covers, spreads and business marketing campaigns.

She launched her first business at only the age of 18 in the freelance beauty industry, working with top photographers and elite clients, utilizing her cosmetology license in a unique way. During this time, she maintained business relationships with CEO’s where she was mentored and shaped into the Entrepreneur she is today. At 23, she continued her education and achieved a Master Certification in Airbrush Tanning.

With an appetite for risk, creativity, and a growth-oriented mindset, she catapulted Bunzies Tanning from just another tanning girl in the industry, to a noticed and desired brand that leading fitness entrepreneurs craved to work with.

It takes a lot of savvy, heightened awareness and good judgement to identify a viable business opportunity and figure out how it can be transformed into a high growth business model. She is a single full-time mother, and grew her business utilizing these skills without any outside investment. A good network is one of the most crucial assets of an entrepreneur, but more importantly, the ability to leverage that network effectively can be the difference between a failed and a successful startup.

The tanning industry grosses over a billion dollars annually. She has developed a turnkey business system offering other women the opportunity to cash in with her. She knows as an entrepreneur you must continuously reinvent yourself and not stay complacent. Now at age 30, she has launched her most recent business venture, Sunless Bunzies Institute. SBI is a new form of residual income that will allow other women to be a part of the Bunzies Tanning Team. SBI provides the training, tools and support to help other mothers and motivated women earn a 6 figure income working from the comfort of their own home.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
No, it has not always been a smooth road. Most of my struggles came with learning my available market in Arizona. What my clients needed for each individual location. Spending time on specific industries and gearing my services toward them involved staying involved with the right people while earning and gaining trust,

I have always been an extreme perfectionist so one of the major challenges in the Airbrush Tanning industry was finding the perfect solution that not only lasts the full promised life of the tan, but provides excellent color and ingredients. I remember in my early stages going through at least 50 different lines until I landed on what I consider the best available. At one point, I tried to make a change to a more popular name brand and it was not a great move. I learned a valuable lesson to not try and fix something that is not broken. As a business owner, this was huge!
