The Story of My Entrepreneurial Adventures
I’m Noa, founder of Tata Sol and I wanted to share with you a few things about me. I’m excited to write here because it took me a few years to get to writing this post right now. I’m a blogger since 2011, I have started my first blog because I needed to find myself, to find my hobbies and so I began documenting my project which was my way of trying new things. My blog called “pre-prepared” (translated from Hebrew) and my posts were mainly about DIY (do it yourself), recipes, sewing and all kinds of tutorials basically. It was all written in Hebrew but it is still online and you can check it out 🙂 I truly believe that was the first step that got me here, to writing this post.
After 2 years I started my first business, it was only a part time job for me because I was also a secretary at a startup called Soluto, and babysitting for a few hours every day so I didn’t really have the time but this is me.. always saying yes and adding more chores to my list hahaha :). My business called “girls having fun” (translated from Hebrew) and I was doing birthday party activities or workshops for girls (mostly) I had sewing activities, cooking or baking activities and crafts activities. It was so fun to do that! I was always working with children (since I was 12 years old!!) and to be part of a child’s birthday and be there to make them happy felt really good, and I’m very thankful for the parents and kids who chose me to be a part of that. Besides the fun it was very hard, I didn’t have a car so I had to borrow my mom’s car every time I had an event, and most of the events were on weekends so I was basically working all week and started my B.A in Economics and Management. I was exhausted!! thinking about it now, that sounds CRAZY but at that time it felt like I can do it all.
During my studies, I tried A LOT of ways to reach out. I started going to fairs, selling handmade goods, sewing kits and craft kits for kids which I made at home. It was very hard for my family and myself to put out a lot of time and energy in those events. The rejection of each person going by my stand and not saying “wow! that’s amazing!” Standing there experiencing that was too hard for me. So quickly my fair stand days were over… but the birthday parties went great!!
In 2015 I started to think- “ok, what’s next?” I was at my second year of my B.A specializing in entrepreneurship so I had many courses and lecturers that really opened my mind. I had lots of ideas and I still do, and hopefully will always have ;). back to my “what’s next?”, I decided to change my direction a little bit, I stopped doing parties and sold all my kits for kids. I changed the name of the business to “Yeziratili” (which means- creative for me, also translated from Hebrew) and my goal was to developed DIY kits for adults. when I was done with my degree I had a void in mind, I had to keep learning and going to courses to keep challenging my mind so I went to all kinds of courses like social platforms, Facebook advertising, Etsy, etc. This was the turning point for my business. I understood that I know more than I think and I can reach higher than I believe.
In October 2016, I opened my new and improved business “Tata Sol” and my new way starts here with you guys. I’m still experimenting new products and ideas such as: Modern embroidery kits, PDF patterns for download, DIY flower crown kits, handmade kids costumes and more to come! So feel free to share your thoughts with me. Ill share everything here with you. You can also find me in social media (I’m a big fan of Instagram story :))
