We had the good fortune of connecting with Ana & Tatyana Sa & Shelburne and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ana & Tatyana, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
We are two woman with many things in common and one of the strongest bonds that we share as owners of this business is the importance of self care, self healing with deep respect to ourselves and Mother Nature. We believe that self love comes from studying self and the more we learn about ourselves, more we understand that we are a unit with nature and others around us.
All we make is simple, natural, free of chemicals self care products that will not harm self, others or the environment.
We help community by teaching ways of self love and avoiding any kind of harm to Mother Earth in the process.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are still learning as we go. As two women with a dream and passion to share what we have learned about natural herbal self care products, we have been facing many challenges, including how to start a business while still having to support ourselves financially. In the beginning, the dream of the business is a deep investment of money, time, and dedication.There are also challenges of learning new skills as a business owner. We have to find balance between the passion to do what we love, which is the process of studying and creating the products, with many things we don’t enjoy doing but are essential to have your own business such as spreadsheets, business plans, logistics, etc. It is definitely not easy and many times we ask ourselves if we have what it takes but there are so many lessons on self resilience, trust and growth as human beings that makes it all worth it.
You must believe in yourself, your idea, your dream and not let challenges stop you but help you move forward with a new gained wisdom from that challenge.
We are still overcoming challenges as we see our growth. We will continue to persevere because we love and we believe in what we do, in the quality of products we make, and what we have to offer.
We want the world to know that we also have a dream to make the world a better place with our actions and work, and we intend to do that by supporting this conscious self love and self care respecting and living in communion with nature.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would bring them to the Beach, to the keys, Everglades places within nature. nature is a healer and is capable of changing our vibrational fields. A recipe for a good time. I would also bring them to Anuttara yoga in Fort Lauderdale, the best yoga in South Florida for an incredible class. Possibly sound healing sessions, drum circles and sunrises at the beach.
To eat, we value community and a good meal made at home with family and my best friend sounds like the best way to connect.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Our mothers and grandmothers, our ancestors and Mother Nature. The women in our lives are a great inspiration because as we were going through our challenges in life, we remembered the care and love our mothers and grandmothers gave us.
A tea, a balm, a herbal bath… they took care of us with natural resources from the earth. They gave us love and showed us the power that nature has to heal and that was a great inspiration for us to continue to take care of ourselves but with respect and love for the great provider Mother Earth.
The wisdom of nature and our ancestors are the biggest inspirations and source of gratitude for us in the process of creating and growing our business.
