Qeturah: Tell us, why are you in Business?
Ene: My passions are usually the driver for all my business ventures. I grew up on a farm with my grandparents who were farmers and believed in natural healing using herbs. Of course, we also fed off what we produced on our farm and I grew up taking in only organic produce. As an adult with kids of my own having a sensitive skin as mine, its only natural for me to want the same experience for them as I had growing up on farm. This led me to begin making and exploring natural options for treatments of skin ailments. I knew this worked but I was keen on converting these natural herbs into lotions and soaps with longer shelf lives. A little more research coupled with my firsthand experience of apprenticing with my grandparents, I started out with making beauty products from the comfort of my home.
Qeturah: It seems like everyone is making beauty products nowadays. What makes Ene Naturals different?
Ene: I whip every beauty product with passion and honesty, this has helped me immensely. Putting the customer first even at the expense of profits sometimes, has been a contributing factor. What I strive for is not the one-off sale, but the returning/repeat customers I gain after my products have been tried and tested and customers are satisfied with the results.
Qeturah: Be honest, what has your experience been like, selling on Qeturah.com?
Ene: Sincerely, I really admire Keturah and all she’s doing and I certainly love selling on Qeturah. I love the unique offerings and how tailored the platform is to enable sellers with distinct products like myself, it makes me feel more than just ordinary. Qeturah sees sellers as business partners and is really committed to developing our businesses and brand equity. I have and will continue to recommend Qeturah to other vendors/sellers as I see a very promising future with this platform.
Qeturah: Before we go, do you have any last words for fellow/budding entrepreneurs in the creative space?
Ene: Firstly, you must be passionate about what you do, making money should come last. Your passions will take you anywhere, not money. Secondly, success does not happen overnight, consistency is key and will get you further!
