Where/How do you get your best ideas?

It’s the day to day learning! Whatever I see and hear aground I try to adapt to my business and that’s how Living Liquidz & Mansionz was born.

What’s something they don’t teach you in University that you should probably know?

What they don’t teach you is to be patient. To be a successful business person that’s something one needs to pioneer.

First thing you do as soon as you wake up?

I try to do something new from what I do otherwise or did yesterday. New is the only constant change I’m looking for in each day.

What do you hope to see happen in the near future for small businesses in the country?

Small businesses have the charm but in today’s environment, I can see the sustainability is becoming less, especially post Covid years. I see more big fishes absorbing small businesses.

What was your biggest stroke of luck since the launch of your company(s)?

The biggest stroke of luck has been my family. Especially my dad who never used the word NO. He use to let us experiment with ideas even if we made losses – it’s the experience from the mistakes which makes you stronger
