What, in your opinion is something that is often over-looked as

a small business, but that you have learnt is really important

to pay attention to, for the success of your business?

Treat yourself like a business with big dreams and as if you are established

already, don’t treat yourself like a charity case. Work hard, put in the work,

don’t sit back, go to the events/markets/pop ups, talk to your customers,

market yourself, learn and invest in knowing all there is to know about your

product, and follow what the legal requirements are for selling your particular

products.

Our target audience is small women-owned businesses, which you can

relate to. Would you like to share any advice or insight for other

aspiring businesswomen, that you learnt from owning and running

your businesses?

Don’t underestimate how amazing you are! Make your intention clear and keep the

Almighty in your mind, when you falter, talk to Him first. When you don’t have an order

or you need some sales talk to Him, when you need advice ask Allah. Then talk to

everyone else that you need to, recruit your family, your neighbours, your friends. Do

NOT be afraid to ask for help, ask for advice or to put yourself out there. And don’t be

embarrassed by showing that this business is what you need right now, there is

nothing embarrassing about building an empire, you may encounter moments where

you are made to feel bad or you feel like you can’t make it, don’t lose focus on the goal.
