Meet Nasaem Sabeti, co- owner of Pouf
I balance being a #bossmom by staying as organized as possible, multi-tasking and trying to function at my highest efficiency. Someone once asked me if I could have any super power what would it be and I said I’d choose to be the most efficient person on earth, making use of every waking moment. Kind of a boring choice but very useful! Also, I’ve been fortunate enough to have wonderful and supportive friends and family who offer their help and support. I take full advantage of that, I’m not shy to ask for help.
My favorite feeling in the world is making women feel as beautiful as they are and helping them feel confident. Sometimes all a girl needs to show off her inner talent is a blowout and a powdered nose. Opening a blowout/beauty salon made the most sense to me. It’s a way for me to make women look gorgeous in the biggest way I can. Maryam (my business partner and co-founder) and I loved the concept of a no cut, no color salon where it’s just easy, fun, instant beauty. We’re hard working moms who want to help out other hard working women look fabulous, because we know that can be a daunting task when juggling everything that life throws at you!
My advice to young women wanting to open a business is to do as much research as humanly possible. Have a plan A, B and C. Opening a business is full of surprises both exciting and challenging and you need to be prepared for whatever comes your way. So make sure you have a solid business plan that you’ve shared with trusted professionals and keep the company of like-minded individuals who inspire and support you so they can be your cheerleaders and help keep you on track when things get tough.
Start small. It may be exciting to want to join the big leagues right away but slow, steady growth wins the race.
Be a humble learner. Shut off your ego sometimes, because it can filter out really great advice. It may not always make sense at the moment or apply to you but all advice is worth hearing and considering. Log it away and draw on it when needed.
Relationships are everything. Your relationships with future clients, other businesses, employees, vendors – they’re all important and in a world where holding a consumer’s attention is as difficult as evening out the wings of your liquid liner, you’ll rely on those relationships to grow your business. Because people want to spend their money with businesses they feel like they know on a personal level. And I don’t have to tell you that word-of-mouth is e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.
Be positive, creative and realistic. Don’t underestimate the power of your thoughts. Use that gorgeous brain!
