Welcome to Voices by DAY ROSE Episode #3 with Audrey Kabla and our guest Ali Zalzali. Each week we will meet with an entrepreneur, a talent, to talk about their journey and to inspire YOU. 

-What is your name and the name of your business?

My name is Ali Zalzali, and the name of my brand is Ali Zalzali (laughs).

-Can you please tell us what it is that you do as if you were talking to a 5 years old child? Simple without technical words. :-)

What I do basically is, I make my dreams happen. I imagine things, and I find ways to make them happen. I do so many different things at the same time. I paint, I draw, I design clothes and spaces. Basically, whatever I dream of, I make!

-When did you know that being self-employed was meant for you?

I knew that I wanted to be self-employed, the moment when my normal 9-5 job wasn't enough for me in terms of creativity. Because I have so many ideas and so many things rushing in my mind. I knew I had to find some time for myself and get these things out of my system. If this is not enough, I need more.

-What do you like most about your every day business activities?

I like the most that each day is different. There are so many things happening. You have so many ideas and you never know what might inspire you. The surprise of everyday is what I like the most.

-How do you recruit clients and make them loyal to your business? Can you share with us the keys of your success with us?

For my personal activities, I use social media, Instagram and word of mouth. I rely on this a lot. This is how I focus on my recruiting strategy for my clientele. I can't lie, I was working in the fashion industry, so I also have a lot of connections. They also help me too. This is the key to success, having a good phone book and sticking to what you do best.

-How is your brand (your name your reputation) playing a crucial game in your business success?

I think, the reputation of a brand is so important. Even if the reputation is controversial, it's still as important. I stick to my own values, which are being passionate, doing things that I love to do. Being kind is very important. Magic comes from talent and kindness.

-What valuable advice can you give to young and future entrepreneurs and artist?

First thing is, be humble. Stick to your passion. Being an entrepreneur and an artist, there are so many things happening in the market. Everything is easily accessible, you need to know what you do best. Start somewhere, do it. It doesn't matter where you start. If you don't start somewhere, you will never get anywhere. Don't wait until things are perfect.

-How do you take care of yourself and your private life?

Private life? (laughs). No but, I do meditate, since a while ago. It's insane! You don't need a special place for meditation. You don't have to be a monk. You can meditate in your own way. It's all about breathing.  

-What is your next travel destination? And why?

It's Berlin. But this is just for work. So what I'm looking forward to most is Costa Rica in a couple of weeks. I can't wait! I'm such a huge fan of nature and colors. It's going to be my first time in the Caribbean.

-Are you more sweet or savoury? Do you have a favorite dish, meal or snack to share with us and a local address you would recommend? 

If you know me you know that I'm both sweet and savoury. I refuse to let one go! My favorite dish is a Lebanese dish called "Fatteh". It's great, it's made with chickpeas, breadcrumbs and a yogurt garlic sauce. My place would be the best place to try it!

- Where can we find you and discover your products, services and art?

You can find me on Instagram: @alizalzali this is my official page. 

I don't have a physical store, a proper boutique yet, as we live in a digital world!
