What's your business, and who are your customers?

PAAVANI Ayurveda is an artisan line of Ayurvedic skincare & wellness products formulated with the purest, earth-based ingredients & the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda to honor your individual needs & nurture radiant health & beauty from within. Our customers are people who are empowered to take their health into their own hands by practicing preventative healthcare daily.

Tell us about yourself

I am the co-founder of PAAVANI Ayurveda and thoroughly enjoy being an entrepreneur, which provides me with an outlet for my creative energy. I feel honored and privileged to be able to share the teachings of Ayurvedic self-care through my product offerings during a time when they are most needed. I hope that my product line will help to introduce and infuse Ayurvedic practices into the daily lives of others. I am a firm proponent of the notion that those who apply Ayurvedic principles empower themselves to be their own healer. I dream that one day all families will raise their children with these philosophies and that the world will find healing solace through each individual’s cultivation of personal balance.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner was letting go of fear and doubt and taking the risk to share my creations with the world. I am proud of us for believing in ourselves, never giving up, and ultimately creating a successful business that has continued to grow and flourish each year.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

One of the hardest things that come with being a business owner is that the work and responsibility never stop. There are always things to do and learn in order to continue to grow the business. Therefore, having firm personal boundaries around work hours is very important when being an entrepreneur.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Believe in yourself and take the initiative to just start somewhere. You will constantly learn and make adjustments as you grow.
  2. Never give up on what you believe in.
  3. Where intention goes, energy flows.
