6. Tell us about one or two of your success stories or testimonials.
It is when the consumer speaks that you realize whether you are really impactful or not. We have been blessed to have some of the amazing testimonials such as these:
A marathon runner, 40, got introduced to Rida Wellness Sports Spray made up of ocean minerals, and was mesmerized by the effectiveness in relieving the cramps and soreness of muscles that happens after a long run. Today, she is a proud consumer of not just the Sports Spray but also Nourishing Hair Gel, Strawberry Lip Balm, and Hibiscus Tisane simply because she started believing in the power of nature in healing. And the Sports Spray is her post-run recovery buddy!
Another quick success story is from a 42-year-old lady, coping with tremendous personal issues leading to build-up of severe chronic stress for years. The result was she could not sleep. She saw our products online on a platform and reached an exhibition where we were showcasing our products. Once convinced of the authenticity and interacting with Dr. Reshma herself she bought the Rida Wellness Sleep Well Roll-On – which is made up of 6 flower essences. She was able to get good sleep with that but soon forgot about it and it was lying in the drawer for quite a few months. She stumbled upon it again later while decluttering and realized she hasn’t been able to sleep well for quite a while and bingo .. that night she slept like a baby and immediately wrote back her experience to us. Today, she is also using our Holistic Wellbeing Services to cope better with the impact that Chronic Stress has made on her health today.
7. What are some of the main challenges you face in your business or in the current scenario?
Two main challenges:
With our corporate wellbeing programs, we experienced a great hesitation of including emotional intelligence & wellbeing in corporate wellness. Very few organizations have realized the importance of balanced, holistic wellbeing, and spreading this awareness through the corporate world has been on our priority list for now.
In the product line, the authenticity of the plants/herbs we source from the cultivators is really crucial. The biggest challenge so far has been the availability of all the medicinal plants that we need time and again as when they are off-season we don’t get to source them. Sometimes, some of the plants are just not available here in our country and it is tough to make a bigger impact with some wonderful therapeutic products whenever the raw materials are not available.
8. Any message for our audience.
Surely! We tend to see a doctor whenever we fall sick. While health is not about restoring it once it is gone for a toss, hence it is important to be aware of your body, mind, and soul. With awareness, we can manage our wellbeing much better and our health is in our hands. So eat a balanced diet, move a little, sleep well, hydrate well and meditate every day.
Note: Remember, nothing is impossible. So make it possible! Each life matters.
