On our G’Prenuer Feature today, we have the CEO of Swiss Amour Collections – Helen Jacobs. She tells us about her line of business and shares her Entrepreneuship journey with us.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR LINE OF BUSINESS. – My business is basically about beauty, nature, happiness, and culture. It’s using beads to create everlasting happy memories in the mind of our customers, ranging from NECK BRIDAL PIECE, PARTY ROCKERS, BRACELET,WAIST BEADS AND EVERYTHING AND ANYThing beadS.
Creativity, curiosity,and customers satisfactions got me stocked in this field,I feel super fulfilled each time I wake up to amazing reviews from my customers because of the beauty and satisfaction my creativity had helped me achieve for them.
HOW DID THE IDEA OF YOUR BUSINESS COME ABOUT?
The idea of my business came from way back 2007 when I desired to widen my beading skills by going for paid beading classes,which I completed; but till date my curiosity to do more and better for my customers each day will make me jump at any bead and jewellery making/enlightening classes that comes my way.
WHY DO YOUR CUSTOMERS CHOOSE YOU OVER YOUR COMPETITORS?
That would be, because of my taste in style, ability to bring their desired fashion accessories to life, customer satisfaction, excellent customer service and ofcourse my calmness and cheerfulness.
HOW DID YOU FUND YOUR BUSINESS AT STARTUP? – I funded my business from my little little savings here and there.
WHAT HAVE BEEN SOME OF YOUR FAILURES AND WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT FROM THEM? –
My greatest failure was investing in a field without a proper background check and plans for continuity, from that failure I have learnt to always make 100% RESEARCH before going into any field and making plans for its progress and success, to avoid making plans for its close up.
WHAT SACRIFICES HAVE YOU HAD TO MAKE AS AN ENTREPRENEUR?
As an entrepreneur I have realised you could be rich today, and left with nothing tomorrow. I have had to sacrifice my last cash to pay for a training to stay up to date, enlightened and informed about my field.
