Good morning everyone; today we have another lovely mum in business on the blog. Please welcome Shashi from Spice Kitchen. You can also find Spice Kitchen on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so make sure you pop over and say hi.
Who are you?
What do you do?
Make handmade spices and tea blends.
When did you establish your business?
The business is my retirement project setup by my son in 2012. It was only meant to be a hobby but has grown into a full time business. I am now out of retirement!
What made you start your own business?
I was very bored in my retirement and was looking for something to do.
What do you love about working for yourself?
I have run my own retail business before I retired so have always worked for myself. However Spice Kitchen is an amazing family business and I am so pleased what me and my son have achieved together.
Is there anything you do not like about working for yourself?
Is there anything you would go back and do differently if you could?
Done this sooner into my retirement as I was bored for a couple of years before starting this.
What advice would you give to a Mum considering starting her own business?
Do it and don’t look back! Start small and grow organically.
If you are a mum running your own business and would like to tell us your story make sure you get in touch 🙂
