What made you decide to start up your own business?
I’ve always been very entrepreneurial and knew for years that I’d create something. I eventually had that ‘spark’ as a result of healing my own health issues through nutrition. I had severe stomach troubles which led me to spending week in a foreign hospital. So noticing the changes that my health had made simply through my diet and specific ingredients was a real game changer for me.
I decided to create Oh My Glow, it’s a detoxing beauty blend designed to reduce bloating, boost energy and clear skin. In the 7 months we’ve been launched, things have gone from strength to strength, we’ve shipped to around 45 countries already.
Tell us about your journey so far
A big challenge included buying 50% of the business back from my business partner. I dealt with this through seeking advice and mentorship as well as being patient. The thing I enjoy most about running my own business is the freedom that it gives me.
What impact have you achieved to date?
Since launching the business our achievements include:
- Shipping to over 40 countries
- Retailing with the World's largest retailer
- Being featured in 6 printed press
- Gaining over 60,000 followers on social media
- Making our first sale within minutes and never going a day without a sale
What is your key tip for Newcastle University students and graduates currently in the process of setting up a business?
Just don't be scared to go for it. If you spend too long putting it off and procrastinating, it may never happen.
How was your experience of working with Rise Up?
Rise Up has always been supportive and enthusiastic, allowing me to get excited about my ideas whilst providing the resources I need to move forward
