I often stop and reflect on my journey and where we are at now; but a recent piece shared in The CEO Magazine reminded me how far we have come with VASH + MOOI.
I am an early riser! I’m usually up by 5am and can’t start my day without a Bikram yoga or boot camp session, or a nice run on the beach with my dog Frankie. I enjoy this very peaceful hour of the day that I have to myself to center and focus on what is to come. Once I arrive home, crazy starts!
When we first started the MOOI brand, due to our low production volumes (as a new brand) we were very restricted with the variety of material we could source- both locally in South Africa and in the neighbouring countries.
Nowadays, I’ve come to realise that being asked the ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions can be the most realigning and grounding activity one can do for a business. How did you start your business? Why did you start?
Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be invited to join a gang of business owners on at unique learning experience in New York. Yes you read that right…NYC!
The balancing act of working together, living together and bringing up children together with your partner can be tricky to say the least. For some, the joy of spending endless hours and sharing in every decision sounds ideal but the reality is that mixing business with your life partner takes a little (or a lot!) of hard work to make perfect.
