Most fulfilling part of growing your wellness community?
Saffron: For me its the feeling of connecting to other people who are curious about the wellness world, feeling like we are helping people to feel seen and supported in their journeys.
Ruby: Seeing how the smallest change in someones life can be so transformative. I’ve always championed that the little changes made and done consistently have the greatest impact and seeing that actually happen for someone lights me up & the relationships I've made, some of my best friends have been made at our Wellness House!
Some things you respect about your sister in a business partnership?
Saffron: Well everything really… she is so tenacious and passionate. If she wants something done, it will get done. It's also amazing watching her guide and nurture people in the way she has always guided and nurtured me. She has a way of making someone feel super cared for and also like everything is going to be all okay cause she’s got you and she’s going to teach you how you can have you too.
Ruby: Oh so much! She grounds me, levels me out when my dreams get the better of me or I'm impatient. She is great with management, organisation and creative direction. She is a complete weapon in business and work and she inspires me everyday, she has since we were little. But mainly that she is my team mate. We respect each others skills and perspectives wholeheartedly. We back each other 110%.
What does it mean to be a person in business in this day and age?
Saffron: We opened our doors 2 weeks before the first lock down. Then after heading out of the pandemic, we were hit with massive flood season in the area. It took a toll on the whole community. We all rallied to help those who really needed it but on the whole, we all suffered. Having a small business in this climate, where the dream is so close to your heart, is hard.
Ruby: We have definitely had a challenging time in business since day one, opening in the pandemic and then having the floods, so our circumstances have been exceptional. It has reiterated that you must be dynamic, adaptable and have a digital focus. But that building a community is most important.
Saffron: Trybe is my side hustle hehe. I have actually been a talent manager for the last decade and this is my passion project.
Ruby: I dont have a side hustle, my whole focus goes into Trybe these days. If anything my side hustle is study - I am a dive deeper of study and I’m learning more in the areas of Ayurveda, nervous system regulation and emotional wellbeing so I can apply it to our business.
Quotes you live by
Saffron: piano, piano. Which is slowly, slowly or little by little in Italian. For me it has been a big learning throughout my life that real change, big goals, healing, all get achieved little by little. Habit by habit. Learning by learning. Life isn’t meant to be rushed through, its meant to be enjoyed for all the smallest moments.
