Joining us today on #HerHustle is Aishwarya Iyer, Founder of Brightland – a Californian brand of authentic olive oils, vinegars, and honey. Brightland products are known for their authenticity and traceability, setting a ‘new gold standard’ within the industry. Aishwarya shares some of the best and worst business advice she has ever received + her skincare routine. Let's dive in!
What was the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The founder of Healthade Kombucha, Daina Trout, told me early on that instead of getting overwhelmed by all of the “to-dos”, I should just put one foot in front of the other, and tackle one thing at a time. It’s so simple, but I find that when I get into that mindset – it truly works!
What was the worst piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Keep an eye on everyone out there and follow them on social media – I actually find that my best work happens when I am NOT looking around, and I’m focused on Brightland.
What’s your favourite quote?
“Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind. The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself” - Mary Schmich
