Say Hello to Jane,
Managing Director of
Ravissante The Beauty Shop & AntiAgeMeNow | AiMNoW,
Alternative Healing Practitioner, Corporate Sales Strategist
and Business Networking Enthusiast
A fellow Alumni of Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia in Finance and Marketing, Jane started her career in the colorful world of Information Technology and hardware distribution and worked up the ranks to become Business Manager of one of the leading IT Hardware companies in the world.
“I loved working in corporate. As I climb higher up the corporate ladder, I asked myself, is this what I really want in life? My answer was no. I wanted to build solid relationships with people I love, who loves me and watch my kids grow - when I decide to have kids, that is! I wanted to take control of my own life, instead of being a pawn at an ugly corporate chess board where people are superficial, only think about themselves, and who are so insecure about their position that they’d act defensively all the time!” she says.
Her move into the Beauty Industry and Entrepreneurship met many obstacles, but as they say calm seas never make good sailors. Almost a decade onward, she is still going strong. She enjoys doing facials for Clients, and gets instant gratification when helping them achieve their desired results. “I give thanks each time we are able to make women beautiful and satisfied with our treatments. Their confidence shines through! That, to me, is priceless!”
“I think I am pretty blessed to be the 25% of business owners that stay for the long-haul”, she says humbly. Research has shown that 75% of businesses close down in their first 5 years. “I have always believed in doing the things that I want to do, whenever I want to do them; and to not do the things that I do not want or like to do! I think my biggest achievement in life is being able to live my dreams, and help others build dreams. Dreams are free, so why not just dream big, right?”
Jane is a strong advocate in giving back to society. Her list of achievements (on top of running a successful business!) includes writing a Diploma & Degree in Spa Management for Malaysian University, lecturing Business Ethics and Corporate Citizenship, Entrepreneurship Development projects and inspiring students to incorporate practical lean management tools while implementing meaningful and successful Corporate Social Responsibility projects.
