Business Showcase: Fig&Olive Naturals
written: 27.05.2016 | by: Maria | in: Blog
It is time for our next Business Showcase! Our participant this week is Julia from Fig&Olive Naturals. Read more about her business and her inspiration!
Tell us about your business:
At the moment we are an online shop selling a range of organic, natural and holistic goodness. Behind the scenes I am training as a Naturopath and working on opening a clinic.
Tell us something about yourself:
I am first and foremost a muslimah, mother, wife to an amazing supportive husband and mummy to 3 darlings aged 4, 2 and 4 months.
Why did you start your business?
I always worked in some capacity, becoming a mum made me re-evaluate everything in my life. I have always been interested in holistic living and wanted to share this with as many people as possible.
What do you enjoy most about your business?
I enjoy networking and meeting new people. I have some amazing customers who I love speaking to.
What advise would you give women who wants to start their own business?
It’s as simple as just going for it. Once you have an idea, research the market and competitors. Decide whether your business will be able to make it. It’s not easy, but with the love for what you do and a million times more patience, it will be worth it inshaAllah
Do you have a source of inspiration? If yes, please tell us about it:
The reason I work from home is because I want to make the most of my babies while they are young. This is my main source of inspiration. Next, are my customers. I get so many enquiries for help, before I’m even qualified. A lot of us need help in some way, a lot of us have health issues that the Dr’s won’t help with or want to dish out medication for. I believe treating the person as a whole rather than symptoms is the way to gain optimum health.
Thank you so much Julia for participating in the business showcase! May Allah give you barakah in your business.
