1. How did you get your career start with Ha-Ra and what path have you taken since?
Our GREEN MISSION started 25 years ago. As a 40 year old Mum I was looking for a home based business with my husband. It was really important to me spending time with my children while being flexible with working hours. As an ex-nurse I saw the great opportunity becoming the importer of Ha-Ra® - the pioneer of micro-fibre cleaning - to educate people that there is no need for harsh chemicals to create a safe environment for the whole family.
Since then we have come a long way with a new website and innovative social media platforms. Our aim is to create flexible business opportunities for individuals while working in the environmental sector and promoting a healthy & chemical-free way of life. Especially for young Mums using Online platforms like Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram this could be an attractive opportunity while staying at home.
2. What is the biggest challenge you've faced along the way?
If you have a clean and dry surface you don’t give bacteria and mould the chance to grow. For example: Just because a toilet smells citrus and lavender fresh doesn't mean it is clean!
3. What is your proudest career achievement?
I was 43 years old with two little babies when I invested our last $6000 on a credit card and started working as a Ha-Ra Agent. After 12 months we built the business and ended up becoming the sole importers in Australia with the largest turn over. It still amazes me to see what a human being can do when they want to give their best for the children. It was all about sinking or swimming. I believe I swam!
4. Why are you so passionate about helping families reduce their chemical exposure and what are your top tips for this?
I read 20 years ago that household chemicals would eventually make society infertile. My question now 23 years later, why do we have so much IVF? It is time to educated the society using none chemical pollutants. I believe this is my bit to give to the Earth. I love to keep myself busy and active while running our blog online with funny videos and green cleaning tips plus my own Instagram account. (bindynaus)
5. Favourite thing about living on Australia’s Sunshine Coast?
We are really grateful living in such a clean pristine environment with clean water ways and less car and industrial pollutants. It is definitely an advantage to promote a healthy & sustainable way of life in a holiday destination like Noosa. We are providing Hotels, Caravan Parks and Resorts with chemical-free cleaning solutions.
6. Who inspires you?
My Husband and children and of course this fantastic chemical-free cleaning system. I would like to let Australia know that Ha-Ra® is the system with the highest quality in the world. I am confident to say: If you have a look alike you should compare it with the quality of Ha-Ra®. All products are manufactured in Germany with a 100% Guarantee.
