How did you come up with your business idea?
I was inspired to start this business when helping my niece’s birthday celebration and my son’s party. At that time, I decided to arrange a special party for my son first birthday; a unique, special and custom party with full of fancy cartoon characters, balloons, cakes and many party ornaments. Soon after the party, I received many good feedback and realized that many parents had the same ‘obsession’ about their children birthday parties as well.
What do you love about running your business?
It simply suits my passion. I can apply my education background in graphic design. I love creativity and kinder world. I always feel excited when doing a party project. It is endless imagination and my children are also my inspiration. Each party work is a unique project for me. It is simple and doesn’t take longer time to prepare. There is a great satisfaction when I see the kids and their parents are happy.
How did you raise money to fund your business?
I used my own saving for initial fund. It is possible to start a business with very little money. This business doesn’t require a lot of money.
How do you promote your products/services?
Mostly through website and social media: Facebook, Instagram, Blackberry Messenger and WhatsApp.
What advice do you have for someone who wants to start her own business?
Start your business according to your passion. Do something different, not mainstream. Be smart enough to catch the current needs. Be creative to fill in the gaps and to find solution that people hardly think about it. It can be just a simple thing but it would be a great opportunity. Above all, you should trust your ability and do it with passion.
