#096 – How Nagina Abdullah Leveraged Failure and Made $20k
Nagina Abdullah didn’t have a lemonade stand as a kid. Entrepreneurship wasn’t on the horizon for her at all. Things changed when Nagina had kids, lost 40 lbs and started blogging about it. Suddenly people wanted to know how she did it, and Nagina quickly began to see that she had a business on her hands.
This was the beginning of Nagina’s business, Masalabody.com. Nagina helps busy, and ambitious women lose weight using fat burning spices and structure.
In today’s podcast episode, Nagina and I discuss how she’s had to embrace failure as part of entrepreneurship. We also talk about the importance of giving your audience what they want, not what you think they want, as well as how patience pays off in business.
