Pelhuaz Exquisite Friend of the Week: Chaussure Boite by B. Ayesha

I met this amazing lady in the middle of my craziness and preparation for the baby's arrival. She was so sweet giving me support as I want to have everything ready before August 01 so I can happily take my Maternity Leave.  

Well Bina, has a gorgeous store named Chaussure Boite by B. Ayesha  with exquisite jewelry and clothing. Let's meet the fabulous Bina.

Pelhuaz: What's your name?       
Bina: Bina Ayesha

Pelhuaz: If you were on an island and could only bring 3 things, what would you bring?             
Bina: iPad, Water & alcohol (LOL)

Pelhuaz: What's the name of your Small Business?          

Pelhuaz: If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?  
Bina: Baked Chicken, Baked mac n cheese, string beans and hawaiian rolls

Pelhuaz: If you were a Star Trek® [or Star Wars®] character, which one would it be?             
Bina: Lt. Uhura

Pelhuaz: Why did you decide to open it?
Bina: I am a lover of all things fashionably fabulous! I probably spend more of my time perusing fashion sites than I should. I blog and analyze fashion but, like you, I am a consumer. I know, firsthand, how frustrating it can be to try to follow fashion trends and stay within budget. I am not wealthy. I'm an everyday woman, just like most of you. I'm a mother and a professional. 
Chaussure Boite by B. Ayesha is the brainchild of Bina Ayesha. After surviving a stroke in June 2007, it became my lifelong goal to fulfill all of my dreams. In January 2013, my dream of owning my own boutique finally came to fruition. I felt like the Chic Fashionistas of the world needed a place to shop with great deals that won't break the bank. At Chassure Boite you will find the latest trends in clothing, shoes and accessories with some of the most affordable prices around! Shop with all of the fun and none of the guilt!

Pelhuaz: What do you wish you had known before you started? 
Bina: The importance of networking and getting a buzz PRIOR to the actual start of the business.

Pelhuaz: When did you open your Store (anniversary)?  
Bina: 1/12/2013
Pelhuaz: What's your superpower?         
Bina: Being able to job tall buildings while working full time and taking care of three boys. LOL! No really, I'm supermom!

Pelhuaz: Who do you consider your sidekick?     
Bina: My iPad

Pelhuaz: What do you do when you are alone in your car?           
Bina: When I'm alone in my car sometime I stare out the window and in the back of my mind I hear my conscious call; Telling me I need to add some more inventory to my store and for the first time in my life I see I'm in love (with running my business of course). :-)

Pelhuaz: What motivates/inspires you?  
Bina: Actually all of my friends that have their own businesses motivate and inspire me. Our little network is full of some of the best people and businesses that I know. When I start to feel discouraged all I have to do is speak to one of them and the passion that they have for their businesses, coupled with the support that they give to me cannot be matched.

Pelhuaz: Imagine that I’m planning to open Pelhuaz, and I don’t know a thing about managing a Small Business, what will be your best advice?          
Bina: I would say to get a small business advisor. You need to get boots to the ground and really research the ins and outs of what you want to accomplish. Learn your niche. Find out all you can about your market.
