When did you start Pamilli and what made you decide to go into the home fragrance business?
It is coming up to 10 years since I started Pamilli. I had previously arranged flowers for Weddings and functions for many years and loved having fragrance in my home. It seemed like a natural step for me to venture into making home fragrances so that others could enjoy them as much as I do.
What parts of the business do you most enjoy working on?
I absolutely love designing new products and the packaging that goes with them.
What do you find most challenging about having your own small business?
I find the most challenging thing is wearing many hats. Developing new products, marketing, selling, packing orders and accounts to name just a few. I'm sure this is common amongst many small business owners.
Describe your typical work day
I try to keep to a plan for the day so that I am not working at night and the weekend. I arrive at work at 9 like most workers and finish at 5. In this time I have made products, packed orders, responded to messages, ordered materials etc.
In a few words describe your life as a small business owner
Busy but rewarding.
Someone reading this and discovering Pamilli for the first time, what would you want them to know about your brand/product?
That I put a lot of time into creating the fragrances used in Pamilli products - and that these are created using only the best ingredients available. Home fragrance is a passion of mine, and I hope that it shows in the end product.
What do you like to do when you aren’t running your business?
On the weekends I play tennis and I am now trying to learn how to play golf. Without a doubt my family is the most important thing in my life and watching Pamilli grow is another thing in life that I get a kick out of.
