Life is like a wheel. Sometimes you're up and sometimes you're down, but when it's approaching the down, are you ready for it? Are you prepared for it?

Hi, my name is Huda. I'm a brand strategist. I've been helping brands elevate their business to the next level by improving their business and making them understand the importance of branding.

My Back Story

In 2014, I set up my own company with my husband. It is called Blissful Studios and we focus on, at that time, photo booth services. Where it takes me is the magical journey. It is amazing how from photo booth service that is actually just meant for weddings and corporate D&D and events, it brought us to photography gigs and it brought us videography as well. And then later on, it brought us into corporate world.

With this interaction, the corporate kind, we realized that all of them have one problem, which is when they want to get their business out there, they don't realize the importance of branding in their business, and that branding in your business will be the one that will actually help you grow your business into whatever you dream of. Maybe millions, maybe thousands, maybe even hundreds just to make your ends meet.

Why woman entrepreneurs?

I have a soft spot for woman entrepreneurs, whether it's in your career, whether it's in your life, whether it's in your business. Woman are generally the one who are struggling. Even though we want to believe there is no glass ceiling, there is a glass ceiling. And there's still stereotype that woman has to be the caretaker of their family. It's not really that we don't want to be, but it's more that we can do so much more. We have so much strength in us, and when the going gets tough, we get even tougher. We go all the way.

Again, woman, outside of this, is to first understand that education is important. Education is the one that can help you realize what other things happen around the world. How do you cook? That is education itself. And, how do you manage yourself when your spouse, your significant other passes on, how do you move on with life? That in itself, is education. And the second thing that will actually help people move forward in their life is actually business.

Let's say you have a career and you're working 9-5, then you have a side business, even though it earns you, maybe $500 extra a month. That helps you have that $500 extra that you could use for something else that your family would need. When you put the two together, business, education. You put education and business together, you will start to see that educating woman entrepreneurs is so much more important and it is beyond the scope of business itself.

Why business, branding & marketing topics?

I really want to help woman entrepreneurs realize the importance of business and to educate themselves. The business is important in their lives. It is a survival skill. Life is like a wheel. Sometimes you're up and sometimes you're down, but when it is approaching the down, are you ready for it? Are you prepared for it? So, that approaching of that down is the one that business helps. Having a side income would help you prepare for when times get tough, and when you need to be able to get back to the top of the wheel.

You’re Part of The Tribe

Every single female deserves a right to education. To educate woman entrepreneurs in business, not just talking about building a business or setting it up. I want to focus on the details of running a business.

1.    Your Learning = Someone Else’s Opportunity to Education

So, it's a two-pronged approach. With your education, another person would be able to benefit from it as well. You educate yourself through the courses that we create and also through our podcasts. You learn about the things that I have gone through. My experience and also from industry leaders that are woman entrepreneurs themselves, so that they can share with you secrets that only woman entrepreneurs understand. Parts of our proceeds will actually go to causes that are supporting education for the underprivileged woman, or even girls.

2.    Listen to Fempreneur Secrets Podcast

So, we want to empower girls to be able to step into education, so that they can have a better life, not only for themselves, but for their future. We start off with the podcasts. The podcast is called Fempreneur Secrets, because we want to share the secrets that only female entrepreneurs understand and can relate to. We bring across the things that are close to our hearts, like branding, marketing, how to run businesses, for yourself. When you are listening to our podcast, you can access it via Spotify, iTunes, or wherever podcasts are available. Anywhere, anytime. You need to invest in educating yourself.

3.    Uplevel Your Skills Online

The courses that we've created are designed for woman entrepreneurs, who've already started their business, and they just need to know how to get the next level. And these courses is available online as well.

The courses will be delivered in the form of video content and it will be something that you can learn as you go along, so you can pick up wherever you have left off and you can learn as you go. In the courses you will also receive some form of group coaching, where we will get it and then we will support one another throughout the period of the course.

If you are the kind of person who wants to start on the right foot all the way, you can come and join us with our courses. So, all this things will be delivered online.

Is e-Learning really possible?

So online is completely, completely possible. Simply because I've done it and I know you can too. When I take the train, or when I take the bus, I would actually spend some time listening to the online courses.

If I can do it in two hours every single day, you will be able to do it as well. So, with it being online, you can have access to me, anytime, any day. Education is life long, so these are the things that we have out there for you, when you are on Fempreneur Secrets.

So, stay tuned and you will definitely learn so much more about woman entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship, branding, and marketing from Fempreneur Secrets.

Some of the resources I've used to pick myself up in business are in the Secret Vault. I've created them and stored them in one location, just for you. Gain access now.
