Its a business by chance. I realized that there isn't any nail salon in my whole estate and jus so happen a space was available for let. So I thought its a good biz opportunity.
How do you balance your business with family?
Prioritize, schedule, set realistics expectations. There is a season for everything. When its time to manage the kids, I will not focus so much on my work esp during examination time. When examinations are over, its time to focus on work. I don't believe in balance. I believe in work life integration.
What are your advises to mothers who want to a business?
Do your market survey. get as much help as u can becoz u might be even busier than before. don't expect it will be a success immediately so perservere. Take the leap of faith!!!!!
Other than running nails and brows, are you involved in any volunteer work or social service?
I am a District Councillor with the SouthWest Community Development Council.
I am very active in my kids' parent support group activities.
My shops are involved in charities too! This year we adopted the Cerebral Palsy centre by providing a monthly free haircut.
How do you ensure that all your 3 lovely kids get your full attention?
There is no way anyone can get my full attention ALL the time and they know that.I try my best though. Scheduling a time when I switched off the phone like during meal time, before bedtime. I also try to talk to them when I am ferrying them around and I take them out on dates with me.
