Ayesha Mianoor- a mom of an 8-year-old baby, is going to share her success story. Let’s meet her to know about her struggles, challenges, and everything that how she got started.
Twists and turns are a part of life and similarly, I faced a lot of hardships, but didn’t give up and continued to struggle. In 2017, I started my small business venture by selling clothes and jewelry, but after some time, I felt like it was not the thing that I wanted to do. So, I continued my studies and completed Masters (M.A). Later, I did a Montessori course and started teaching but due to several issues, I couldn’t continue it as a career.
Then one day, one of my cousins asked me to make a hair oil for her because I’m good at making DIYs. She then suggested me take a new start by making DIYs. And this idea worked like a magic for me. Without wasting my time, I started making hair oils and accepted orders.
Initially, I made hair oils and accepted orders for them, but later, I studied and researched how to make foot balms. And since then, I started accepting orders for foot balms as well. Fortunately, both products became popular and I got good reviews from my customers.
Later, I discovered my interest to study further, and I got enrolled in the Institute In London where I did a diploma in Herbalism. Thereafter, I joined a reputed Laboratory from where I’m learning formulation.
The primary purpose behind this was to help those women who keep themselves busy all the time with home chores and fulfilling other responsibilities, but don’t manage time for themselves.
There is a need to introduce natural, safe, and green ingredients that do not harm the environment so that people who do not like chemicals can easily use natural products and get benefits from them. The natural products are halal and safe. Our products are fresh and healthy because we make small batches. All of our products are made with carrier oils, essential oils, raw honey, and beeswax. In 3 years, I have launched more than 15 products. And that’s a big win for me as I started with nothing.
Any business is not easy to run. Negativity and hardships plagued me, but I kept going. However, I credit my parents and my husband who have been a strong support system since the beginning of my career. To come up with another success story, I hope to have more success in the future.
