22. All Natural Skincare Entrepreneur Shares Business and Health Tips
This week Aja Yasir discusses the inception, conception, and actualization of her business, Simple Beauty Naturals.
Aja dreamed of entrepreneurship as a child and even credits her youth experience as a swimmer with helping her develop a risk-taking approach to entrepreneurship. One risk in particular, selling a franchised business in Chicago and moving to Venezuela, sparked the idea to start her business of making all-natural, plant-based beauty and skincare products.
Her risk paid off, as she has launched a successful business that not only seeks to show customers the value of using natural products but also creates opportunities for other people. Aja not only left me thinking that I need to drink more water, but she dropped some serious knowledge bombs so take a listen.
