Every year thousands of women decide to start their own business accounting for over a third of the UK’s self-employed. Not only is it important for economic growth that women continue to set up small businesses but it is vital that we celebrate their achievements. Our founder Jules Birch tells us more about her journey into business and what keeps her striving for success.
“I founded Works with Water Nutraceuticals after working in the confectionery, pharmaceutical and vitamins sectors, so establishing my own business was almost a logical step…albeit a big one. I was fortunate to have the encouragement and support of a number of business associates who recognised what I was looking to achieve and realised they could play a part in the development of health innovation and the emerging interest in nutraceuticals.
However, being the ‘first’ in any industry is always challenging and never easy…particularly when you don’t have a huge amount of resources and are faced with the inevitable disappointments and set-backs that can sink many businesses. Passion and belief are two key requisites for anyone starting out in any venture…and thinking back, fortunately, I had both in abundance!
Trust is also an important quality. Both where and in whom you place your trust and that as a business and person you can inspire trust in others.
As an ingestible food supplements business, we were the first company in the UK to develop a range of soluble and ready-to-eat food supplements containing ingredients scientifically proven to have a direct impact on the skin within a timeline to effectiveness of between 3-6 weeks. We wear our skin every day. We live in it and subject it to the stressors of life. So it makes sense to nourish it from the inside out with ingredients and formulations that can be trusted and are proven to be effective through independent scientific studies.
All businesses need to evolve and grow and my business is no different. We’re in the pre-launch phase of a range of new products for 2017, addressing skin health, satiety and sports nutrition. Different health needs but with the same core values of being easy to use, fitting into everyone’s daily routine…and delivering measurable results.”
That’s enough about me. What about you?
