“Our other sister Anouska (Shop owner) came on board, then due to COVID last year pretty slow for us. We all work full time, 2 of us have children.
Our fourth sister came on board this year Alex (Teacher) and we re-branded and relaunched ourselves.
We now focus on empowering women, helping be the best they can be. We designed a 90 days self-investment planner which is selling really well and are offering support sessions and memberships. Also merchandise is on sale at Anouska’s shop HOST.”
