Give us the background to your business 

I'm a Holistic Therapist with a passion for natural health. I created Holos Skincare having been inspired by my clients positive reactions to essential oils and plant oils. Holos is luxurious plant-based aromatherapy skincare. It improves skin health and helps prevent the signs of ageing by feeding the skin nutrients that are found naturally in the ingredients. Our products give vitality to the skin, the well being and our world as our ethos is centered around being Irish made, being holistic, vegan and cruelty free. 

Holos is a multi-award winning company with 9 of our 18 products winning awards. Holos also won the Image "Most Innovative Irish Brand 2018". Holos is available online and through stores with a focus on health and wellness. We are a team of 5 and we've grown through hard work and with investment from both Enterprise Ireland and Dragon's Den Investor Eleanor McEvoy.

This year, we doubled our turnover, began exporting to Hong Kong, and began working with some quality Pharmacy groups. Next year will see the launch of a whole new range of products and some great partnerships.

The best business tip you've ever received?

During busy, stressful times, ask yourself "Is what I'm doing right now driving sales?" If the answer is No, STOP what you are doing! 

The priority is sales, everything else can wait!

Any advice for other business owners?

Listen to your customer, don't make the negative stuff public. know your numbers, have a plan, schedule time off.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Still being creative and working on all manners of projects including but not limited to Holos Skincare. 

In 5 years, Holos will be worth several million so I'll be looking at options for scaling it further (as I am always).

What does business achievement mean to you?

Having a brand that people want, the ability to continue to innovate and a team that are happy and productive. I'd be lying if I said a healthy profit margin isn't no. 1  but I only want that as long as the other aspects are not compromised.
