We had the pleasure of sitting down with the inspirational Mompreneur behind one of Vancouver’s business stars, Newsha Browlash, Niosha Behrangi.
Mompreneurs WW: Tell us about your company.
Niosha: I provide top-class cosmetic services such as eyebrow threading and tinting, eyelash extensions and tinting, facial threading and special-event makeup.
Mompreneurs WW: How did the idea of starting it come about and who inspired you?
Niosha: I was managing and working for a local brow-bar for several years. I became popular because I provided a quality and unique approach for this line of work. After my maternity leave was over, the business had closed so I decided to start my own.
Mompreneurs WW: What is the best part of what you do and the toughest?
Niosha: The best part about my job is seeing new clients with eyebrows that have seen years of maltreatment and then training their shape over the following months into an entirely new look for the client. The toughest part of my job is the physical aspect – I often have back pain and strain.
Mompreneurs WW: How many kids do you have and how old are they?
Niosha: I have one son. He is almost two-and-a-half right now.
Mompreneurs WW: How do you juggle work and life balance?
Niosha: I try to make the most of my weekends for family time and socializing. I also try to keep my work at work and rarely provide services outside of business hours.
Mompreneurs WW: What’s a book you always recommend and why?
Niosha: I recommend “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. This book taught me that it’s never too late to take your life’s biggest steps and you can always find a positive path through life even if your thoughts are reflecting negativity. Your mind and your effort create the changes in your life so you should be proactive and do something about it.
Mompreneurs WW: What advice would you give a Mompreneur who was just starting out?
Niosha: My best advice to any new entrepreneur would be to first gain experience in the line of work tied to the envisioned business, especially with client relations and interacting with the public.
Mompreneurs WW: Your favorite quote is…
Niosha: Also from Paulo Coelho: “Only one thing makes a dream impossible: a fear of failure.”
