Mina Ebrahimi; Transforming Passion into a Business

It is factual that the intermittent nature of catering jobs has made it almost impossible for an individual to make substantial profits. Even though the business can be relatively rewarding at some point, it is also true that it takes so much for a caterer to be successful eventually. With that said, it takes one some diligence and persistence to make it in the industry. Just like Mina Ebrahimi has illustrated it, catering can be pretty rewarding in many ways.

Introducing Mina Ebrahimi

Mina Ebrahimi is the daughter of immigrant parents who moved to America in search of greener pastures. Over the years, they formed a small bakery that supplied cakes and bread to consumers from around their neighborhood. Over and above that, Mina Ebrahimi was always at the bakery to observe and borrow some ideas on baking. Therefore, while in the learning process she developed some passion for the business. Because she worked hard at attending to clients, she won many clients’ hearts. That is how she gradually inherited the business. However, before that, the name of the company was changed to Saint Germain Café and until now, that is how it is known by many.

Duties and Responsibilities

Serving as the CEO of Saint Germain Catering, Mina Ebrahimi’s success is vastly attributed to her passion and excellent catering skills. For her, catering is more about unwinding while making special contact with her clients. Other than that, she goes out of her way to discover new dishes that clients would like in the long run. Besides, since she enjoys cooking as one of her fortes, she finds it easy to connect with women who need her empowerment in one way or the other. In fact, she has been contributing part of her financial resources to non-profit-organizations that support cancer-awareness and its prevention among others.

The Overview

When it comes to catering, most people would rather approach it as a business. Although that is beneficial in many ways, Mina’s approach as a hobby is more rewarding. This is tied to the fact that she gets the opportunity to work with the community in other instrumental projects.

She gives people hope that if you want your dreams to come true that you need to create your own opportunities no matter where you come from or what your background is. Doe was born in Russia and grew up there. She moved to the United States at the young age of 17 and lived in New York City as a musician pursuing her biggest dream. While living in New York City, Crooklyn was her stomping grounds and where she spent most of her time. Doe even attended FIT in New York and majored in fashion design. Not knowing what her life would hold she couldn’t have chosen better since makeup and fashion always go hand in hand. Music was the touchstone of her future career.

Lime Crime was born when Doe realized that the style she loved just wasn’t present in the makeup industry. While magazines and fashion were all focused on natural and nude colors, Doe wanted bright, vibrant, and unusual colors that called to her soul. She wanted to be able to show off her true style. In 2008 though finding those colors was impossible. When she realized that she could only find beige glosses and subtle pink she gave up the intense search and started to make them herself.

Doe was surprised and frankly unprepared as she realized that so many girls and women were craving the same looks and colors that she was. Lime Crime was an instant success because it catered to a demographic that until then was untapped.

Instantly profitable Lime Crime is a way for not only Doe but all women to express their love of colors and individuality. Makeup is an expression of your personality, and it is one of the first things that people see about you. Learn more: http://limecrime.tumblr.com/
