Alana Riley is an award-winning business owner from Nelson - and a proud member of our Nurture Change 2015 Alumni. She established natural skincare products company Oxygen Skincare in 2009 using organic hop produced by Australasia’s largest organic hop-producing farm ‘New Hoplands’ in Tapawera, near Nelson (a farm she and her husband Colin own). Alana is a mother of three and combines her passion for her business with her busy family life.
We asked her to share with us 3 pieces of advice she would give to others in business. She over-delivered and gave us 4 (don't you love that?!).
ALANA'S 3 PIECES OF BUSINESS ADVICE:
- Feel your intuition. Don’t ignore it - it doesn't lie.
- Have a vision in your business and always check in on it to make sure the decisions you're making align with this and your values.
- Move fast. Don’t think too long and over-analyse or you may miss the boat. Don’t be scared to change direction if it's needed.
- Remember: this is not the dress rehearsal. This is the real thing.
