Alexander Graham Bell once said, “What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.”
Indeed, the above quote seemed to resonate with what Ms Wendy Low and Mr Kevin Koh of Our Solution Pte Ltd, felt about entrepreneurship. “You need to work very hard and have a never say die attitude. Perseverance is the key to the survival of your company,” Wendy espoused. “It doesn’t mean that when you set up a company, you will be guaranteed an abundance of riches and prosperity. Stay committed and devoted to your goal in life, and you will see it coming true” Kevin added.
Our Solution was started in 4th July 2011 offering a range of facial, slimming, body relaxation and pain treatment. At Our Solution, you will be indulge by the variety treatments which uses both Chinese and Western technique. Our Solution is anchored by Wendy who has more than 15 years of vast experience in aesthetic and beauty treatment. Coupling with Kevin who also possess more than 5 years of experience in similar trade, the duo constantly brainstorm and create new treatment to bring the best for their customer.
Just like Our Solution’s philosophy: “We offer the Professional difference. Delivering what we promise.” Both Wendy and Kevin pride themselves to provide the best for all.
The reason behind their decision to start the company simply because opportunity came knocking at their door. Besides a good location which was offered to them, inspiration from Wendy’s mother who owned a saloon, gave her an additional push to pursue her dream. Equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and God’s blessing, both Wendy and Kevin was confident to take their first step out.
Initially, when they started the business, life was not as picturesque as it seemed. “Getting our very first customer is the hardest!” Kevin recalled poignantly. “Building the team is equally challenging, especially nowadays hiring people with the right attitude isn’t as simple as before.” Wendy added.
Nevertheless, with a spirited mindset to overcome all struggles that come in their way, the duo managed to overcome all obstacles. “We tried all means to increase our company’s exposure, even if we have to give out flyers under hot scorching sun or road show. Think positively and make things happen. Never ever lose hope.” Wendy advocated.
To differentiate from the rest, Kevin explained that Our Solution combines aesthetic and beauty which is more effective, safer and yet no down time. “Our products are formulated by natural ingredients which are highly recommended by aesthetic doctor.” Kevin elucidated.
When quizzed on what are some of their proudest business achievement, Wendy shared that being nominated by the public for this Singapore’s Outstanding Enterprise 2012 is our greatest achievement. “Being recognized by the consumer is the main reason why we have been working so hard for.” Wendy mentioned with exuberance.
Kevin then went on sharing some other incidents which they take pride in. “We have a client when she first came to us, her body was covered with acne. She tried all methods but the problem seem incurable, losing hope and confidence in herself, she decided to give it a last try at Our Solution, from just a few short treatment her problem was changing for the better. She start gaining back her confident. This is the kind of life changing and reform treatment/solution we wish to provide for our customers.”
Already, plans for further expansion are in the making. Wendy postulated that if everything goes well, we are looking at opening 2 to 3 other branch locating at different parts of Singapore. “We hope to share such wonderful treatments to all” said Kevin.
Thus, what are the ingredients for success? “Go all out, set your eyes on your goals and work towards it. Even at the most torrid period, stay positive, look at the goal and keep moving on. Be mentally prepared for the worst if you intend to start a business,” Kevin advocated.
Like what Michael Jordon once said, “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” Similarly, it takes time to succeed. There is no easy way out in the world of business. Success does not come easily. Nevertheless, like the axiom, “You reap what you sow,” once you manage to overcome the initial struggles, a whole new world full of colours and rainbows awaits you.
To the potential or budding entrepreneurs, are you ready to take a leap of faith and make this first step towards an unparalleled success?
