Why did Anu Start her business?
Anu began her business after becoming a stay at home mum to make sure that she could do everything to help her son to better health after he was born poorly. Reflexology was something she had always had an interest in from a young age. She was fascinated in how we can support our internal health by working on the feel and bringing balance to the whole body. She has always loved her business and finding solutions for people when they are unable to. This gives her immense joy and satisfaction.
If Anu had to change anything about her business, she said it would be “To be able to help more people empower themselves to better health.” Anu’s goal for her business is to grow it and help as many people achieve a work life balance.

Anu’s advice for anyone who is thinking of starting their own business
Anu’s advice for anyone starting their own business is to have a plan. You need to understand what you want your business to represent. She also believes that talking to people who have been through the process. It’s important to invest in getting the right help is the way to go. Anu also said to “be authentic and have integrity. If it makes you light up inside, then don’t give up in your dream.”
She also explains that you need to work on your business every day. This is something she wish she knew at the start. Anu said it’s rewarding if you put effort, commitment and work into it. “Remember it’s your business and you have to work at it. Self-development is essential.”
