The new website brings together a range of over 100 guaranteed allergy and asthma friendly products including Adrenaline and Asthma Inhaler Cases, Allergy Alert Clothing, Labels & Tags, Translation Cards, Books and Medical Alert Jewellery for adults and children.

Allergy Lifestyle hosts an on-line community where we can share information and tips and help each other negotiate our way through the Allergy Lifestyle’. They also post lots of useful information easily accessed on their website under ‘Allergy Information’

Inspiration for Allergy Lifestyle Anne was inspired to set up Allergy Lifestyle after her third child Aisling developed eczema and serious food allergies as a baby and suffered a life threatening exposure to peanuts coming up to her second birthday.  Aisling has peanut, egg, sesame seed, dust mite allergies and hay fever. She was Anne's inspiration to set up Allergy Lifestyle to alert others to her allergies and to source and supply as many products to help those managing serious allergies and asthma.  Now as a healthy and active nine year old, she considers herself Anne's business partner and takes her role very seriously, personally approving all products!

What are Anne's 3 tips for budding entrepreneurs? Make sure you have a good support network around you. It is exciting starting you own business but it can also be scary and challenging. There will be lots of hard work and lots of money up front before you see a return so be prepared. Getting together with other startups is a great source of support, as they will know exactly what you are going through.

Forge links with organisations such as Enterprise Development Companies, Innovation in Business Centre’s, County Enterprise Boards and Enterprise Ireland, which may be able to assist you with funding, mentoring and other supports.

Be prepared for the unexpected, celebrate your achievements, enjoy and give yourself a pat on the back for being brave enough to do it!
